Mary and Joseph’s Rustic Wedding at Stone House at Stirling Ridge

New Jersey Bride Mary and Joe Real Wedding

Details of the day: Our wedding was all about the personal details and touches. When you looked around the room you really saw who we are. I spent months making all the decorations, place cards, programs, straws, signs, wreaths, hangers, etc. The first decision we made was booking the Stone House, it had that rustic elegant feel we wanted.

The bridesmaids dresses were next and what an easy pick! The BHLDN dresses are beautiful, feminine, classic, and special. Finding my dress wasn’t difficult because the ladies at I Do…I Do… in Morristown are fantastic. I had no idea what kind of dress I wanted, but they did. It was the first dress they put me in. Strapless, lace, swiss dot, scallop two tier trai…everything I didn’t know I wanted. My dress made me feel confident, beautiful, and glamorous.

My floral budget was not the largest and Twisted Willow was able to create such beautiful pieces that really tied my DIY decor and the Stone House together. From the soft pinks and peaches to pops of plum and hints of rosemary my flowers were so stunning and I received SO many compliments on them. The day was perfect from beginning to end. We laughed a lot, we ate a ton, we danced all night, and we ended the night dancing away at the Stirling Firehouse where my father-in-law is a volunteer. A dream day with all our family and friends.

Your favorite part: Our ceremony was easily the best part of our day. I walked down the aisle to the theme song from The Princess Bride, a favorite of mine and my father. Michael Yelle, our officiant, wrote such a special and personal ceremony that had everyone captivated. Everyone came up to us throughout the evening telling us that it was the best ceremony they’ve ever been to. The ceremony was about us, it told the story of who were are, how we came together, and what being married means to us. My face hurt from smiling so much. We laughed, we cried, and we really connected with our family and friends. I spent HOURS making all the programs and ribbon wands. During the recessional everyone waved the wands in the air and it was so amazing to see them in action! It was a moment we will never forget.

If you could change one thing about your wedding what would it be? I would’ve eaten more food.

Advice for other brides: Best advice I received which I would tell any bride to be: Stay with each other the whole night. Greet your guests together, go around the room together, dance together, wherever one goes the other joins. It sounds like “duh” type of advice, but it is so easy to separate to talk with friends and family and lose each other. I’ve talked with other couples who have been separated for half hour plus and they really regret it afterward. The night goes so quickly and you want to experience the wedding together.
