Dan and I matched on Tinder and went on our first date a few days later. He took me to the Jersey Shore for a drink and dinner and we hit it off right away. Two years later, Dan’s friend Brett took us on a boat trip to Greenwich, Connecticut. Brett docked the boat and hopped off for a minute to give us some time alone. Dan put on some music and asked me to take a photo together. As I took out my phone to take the photo, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! When we got back home, I was surprised again to find two dozen roses, balloons that said “She Said Yes!,” champagne bottles, and new Louboutin shoes, all in our room.
My heart skipped a beat when we drove up to the venue. The temple and the ballroom are so romantic and elegant. Les Friedman, the owner, and Marty Maged, the general manager, made us feel like a part of their family. Dan and I both work in sales, and we agreed Les and Marty were the best vendors we ever had the pleasure to work with. They planned everything to perfection from beginning to end.
Our wedding theme was all-white rustic elegance. For our ceremony, the aisle was decorated with white rose petals and floating candles on either side. Each bridesmaid carried a bouquet of white calla lilies. We were married under a large chuppah with curly willow branches and white orchids.
Guests were greeted at our cocktail hour with shooting sparklers and a glass of Prosecco. Butlered hors d’oeuvres were passed around the room, including duck cigars, horseradish steak, and mahi-mahi tacos with a tequila shots. We also had many food stations. Some of the favorites were the sushi station, the slider bar, the pasta station, and the scotch bar. You name it, we had it! |
To keep consistent with our theme, the candles, flowers, and furniture in our ballroom was also all-white. We incorporated amber uplighting to add a dramatic, country glow to the room. We also had hanging white votives and a mixture of high and low centerpieces on the tables. Each table was surrounded by chairs with pristine white seat covers. Some tables had white orchids and some had white curly branches. For fun, we also put selfie sticks at each table for our guests to enjoy!
We wanted a non-stop dance party and our band played a range of music which kept everybody dancing. We loved having butlers pass iced patron shots on the dance floor!
The waiters brought lamb chops to every table. Then, for their entrée, guests had an option of chateaubriand, ponzu sea bass, chicken roulade, or grilled eggplant rollatini. We also offered an array of passed desserts including cake pops, frozen chocolate bananas, and fresh s’mores. Everything was delicious.
Thank you to Les and Marty at Northern Valley Affairs for helping create our dream wedding. Thank you to our families for making this magical day all possible. Thank you to all our guests for sharing this special day with us!
