“Today I got to marry my high school sweetheart and best friend for the last eight years. The day started with hair and makeup at my parents’ home in Manalapan with my maid of honor and two bridesmaids. After my dress was on I got to walk down the stairs where I grew up as I always envisioned I would; It made it so special and emotional for my parents and I.”

“Our ceremony was held at Saint Thomas the Apostle Church in Bloomfield; it was an absolutely gorgeous cathedral with marble floor and high ceilings lined with beautiful stained glass windows. For me, it was really a dream come true saying “I Do” in a place like that. My dress was by Casablanca Bridal– mermaid style with a chapel length train, sweetheart neckline and elegantly ruched bodice highlighted with re-embroidered lace and Swarovski crystal appliqués.  I LOVED my dress.”

“My veil was accented with Swarovski crystal as well. After the church ceremony, pictures were taken in the gardens of Nanina’s in the Park in Belleville. The vision of the day was completely my own as I planned the majority of every detail by myself. My mom and sister (my maid of honor) helped me make the reception decor personalized by crafting our own wooden table numbers, creating our own signature cocktails, personalizing the favors, and adorning the tables in the foyer with family photos of previous family weddings.”

“We pulled out all the stops for our reception! We had a tremendous cocktail hour, photo booth, cigar roller, deejay, and even an after-party that was “diner themed” held in the lower level room of Nanina’s! And to top it off, sparklers outside at the end of the night!”

“My husband will laugh, but my favorite part of the day was during cocktail hour. We got to be alone in the bridal suite for a little while and just take a break from the guests, cameras, and excitement of the whole day. We got to talk to each other, laugh, be ourselves, and just take in the fact the we were actually, finally MARRIED! It was a very nice intimate moment in the midst of a very exhilarating and exhausting day.”

“The day is going to FLY by no matter what you do; All of the year(s) of planning and it is over in the blink of an eye. The best advice I can give is to make sure at some point throughout the day or night, you take a minute for yourself. The day is going to be overwhelming and emotional, so take a breath, just you and your new husband, and let it all soak in. Appreciate each other and the reason you are both here today in the first place.”
