Q & A with the Bride:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

We visited a number of venues around the city and none of them had the character of the Berkeley Street Church. That unique, vintage feel really went along with what we wanted out of our wedding – a vintage-chic look that only this particular venue could help us achieve.

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

  1. We made our own wine for the wedding and created custom labels based on the names of each of our two cats, Dorito and Pinchy. The white wine was called Dorito Vineyards, and the red, Sir Pinchington Estates.
  2. The old-fashioned photo booth was the perfect fit for our theme, and guests could sign a fantastic guest book with each of their pictures available in there immediately.
  3. Our custom-made cake toppers based on our Xbox 360 avatars

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

My husband and I wrote our own vows and unbeknownst to each other ended up copying each other in one key line – that we would always be each other’s “Player 2.” The combination of surprise and the reaction of our guests was one of the most memorable parts of the whole day.

Eclectic Winter Wedding in New Jersey

Posted by Kim on Mar 25, 2013

Natalie & Adam

January 18

Jersey City, New Jersey

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

It was just special. We knew Liberty House was our place from just looking at the photos. The view of downtown Manhattan as a backdrop was stunning along with the high open beamed ceilings and surrounding candlelight made it so romantic and intimate.

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

  1. Table Numbers & Escort Cards. Our table numbers were handmade by my artistic dad. He burned all of the details by hand for every single table and handmade the escort cardholder which took weeks of hard work.  All of this time and dedication in making these details perfect for us made these details even more special.
  2. Taxi Cab Limo. Our transportation for the wedding party was an old school taxi cab limo that spiced up your typical wedding transportation. It brought the city feel to life and gave such a fun, lighthearted feeling to the wedding party during our trips to the photos, ceremony and venue.
  3. The Music. Our band was amazing. My dad is a musician, so music was number was on his list. We had weekly calls with the band to make sure they knew our song list and style. There was not one person that didn’t tell us how fantastic the music was at the reception. They made it a party to remember! We also had slipper socks (since it was winter, we didn’t go with flip flops) for our guests to keep on dancing even when their feet were tired!

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

The moment we heard our wedding song – “Soul Sister” by Train. We picked the song so long ago because we loved the story it told. We had listened to it over and over again. When it finally came on at the wedding, it all became so real and our story came full circle. Also,  while there was a room full of people staring at us, it felt like it was just the two of us in the room at the moment.

Whimsical Bird-Themed Summer Wedding in New York

August 18

Newburgh, New York

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

We wanted an outdoor wedding ceremony to capture our “love bird” theme and we thought The Powelton Club would be the perfect place. Also, the place is extra special to us because my in-laws had their wedding reception there in 1975.

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. Cake: This is where it all started. I saw a picture of a cake online that had a “love birds” topper and that gave me the idea of having a “love bird” theme. I wanted a replica of the cake and I sure got it!

2. Floral arrangements and decor: Our florist did an amazing job incorporating all the elements and transforming our venue into a magical place.

3. Wedding dress: I exchanged my dress not once, but twice. It is true, the third time’s a charm! I fell in love with the third dress instantly. It felt like my dress was the piece to pull off our “love bird” theme.

The outdoor ceremony. It was picture perfect! We saw some tears from our families and friends (not to mention my own) when we recited our vows to each other, and we know those were tears of joy.

Q & A with the Bride:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

Our venue had all of the elements of a carnival – a Ferris wheel, a merry go-round and the inside of the reception area looked like a giant circus tent. We also loved the idea of having elements of indoor and outdoors. The venue was nestled away in the mountains and had a very romantic feel.

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

  1. Candy Bar
  2. Table Arrangements
  3. Activities (Caricature Artist, Photo Booth, Palm Reader)

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

Stephen and I did a first look before the ceremony. We were both so nervous. I can’t stop thinking about walking up to him and seeing him for the first time in his suit and seeing the way he lit up when he saw me in my dress. It was magical.

We loved the classic/historic feel of the Chapel. We knew our pictures would look timeless.

Our photographer suggested a “first look” moment. We really cherished our time together before the ceremony. It made the wedding day feel more intimate.
