A beautiful, sunny day with mild temperatures set the stage for the wedding of Erin & Tim.

Jenn and her team from Pure provided the Hair and Make-up services for the bridal party for a great start to the day.  The bride and her sisters (who were her attendants) got ready in the family home, which provided such a comfortable setting for the special day.

Paige of Once Like a Spark photography was the photographer.  She began capturing photos of the dress and all accessories at various locations throughout the house, giving some wonderful backdrops for the items that will have meaning for years to come.  Photos of the bride’s family also took place at the home before heading over to the Church.

Also on hand capturing the video images of the day was Jonathan (and Michael) of Evolution Video.  Jonathan is always such a pleasure to work with and his video’s are lasting treasures from the Special Day.  One trait of a videographer that is of extreme importance to me is one that is unobtrusive while expertly capturing the beauty and emotion of the day.  Jonathan always exceeds not only my expectations, but those of my clients as well!!!

Atlantic Limousine provided a limo to transport the bride, her attendants and her parents to the Church, St. John Neumann Catholic Church.  Meanwhile, the Groom, his Groomsmen (his brothers) and his parents arrived at the Church and met up with Paige for their pre-ceremony photos. After the ceremony, the limo took the wedding party to the off-site location for photos before delivering them to the reception venue.

The couple had quite a large group of guests travel from out of town for their wedding.  As a courtesy, they provided a Trolley to shuttle the guests from their hotel to the Church and then back to the hotel where they were transported by the Hotel’s shuttle to the Reception venue, 550 Trackside.

At the end of the ceremony, as the Bride & Groom were ready to make their way back up the aisle, from the back of the church, a bagpiper, played the recessional and postlude which was such a wonderful surprise for the guests.

Once all of the extended family photos were complete, the wedding party headed over to the Historic Square in Lawrenceville for some special photos.

Since the weather was so nice, guests were able to enjoy Cocktail Hour on the Terrace where they were able to mingle, watch trains go by as well as nibble on some yummy Hors D’oeuvres.

The groom built a special “frame” that held the Escort Cards. Each card was attached to the frame by a miniature clothes pin.  It was such a sweet display and guests were very intrigued by the design.

A Bokay by JoAnn provided the florals and the catering.  Each table had a slightly different centerpiece.  Some tables had tall centerpieces while others had low groupings.  The buffet had 3 beautiful arrangements adorning the presentation.

HH Deserts provided the wedding cake.  The five tier cake had a variety of interesting design components.  Three of the tiers had a lace design mimicking the bride’s dress, while one tier had a Monogram.

The bride prepared a few items {DIY} that added a nice, personal touch to the event.  She purchased four large pillows and had them embossed with the wedding date and their married names.  We placed them on a couple of sofas located in the venue.

She also prepared a sign that we hung above the Candy Buffet that said “Love Is Sweet”.  She also created adorable Favor bags which were brown paper bags that she attached a hand-dyed doily and labels on to.  They were perfect for the rustic theme.

A huge hit for the gentlemen was the Cigar Station.  The bride’s father purchased cigars which were placed on a table out on the terrace.

DJ Fernando of Lethal Rhythms provided the entertainment for the evening.  He kept the crowd energized all night long!!!

The evening ended with the couple departing through a Sparkler send-off to their waiting limo which took them to the after party before delivering them to their home where they celebrated their first night as a married couple.

We enjoyed working with these clients and wish Erin & Tim a lifetime of Happiness!!!
