From Laura Bianco of My Bellissima: When Susan and Todd originally came to My Bellissima to plan their wedding back in 2009, we knew they were special, but never knew how much they had been through. Todd suffered from a brain aneurism 3 years ago and from this has struggled to get back to the way he was 9 years ago when he first began to date Susan. Susan nurtured Todd and from this fell in love all over again. Last March, Susan discovered a tumor growing on her hip. After the removal of the tumor and much physical therapy, she thought she was in the clear to walk down the aisle in October. Unfortunately, her hip did not heal properly and was still in fact broken. She was put in a full body cast up until a week before her wedding. During all of this they BOTH lost their jobs and it was truly a cross to bare. They couldn’t cancel the wedding due to the several thousands of dollars they had put down on deposits. At that point they did what they could and made the best of this continuous black cloud that always seemed to loom overhead. Until finally, on October 8th 2010, the skies cleared up and turned into an incredible wedding day! Susan and Todd Lawrence were married at The Stone House At Sterling Ridge in Warren NJ. The setting couldn’t have been more perfect. Surrounded by family and friends, Susan and Todd said their “I Do’s” under a Chuppa adorned with hanging crystals, candles and soft white drapes. They treated their guests to a cocktail style reception with an eclectic mix of stations. Her tablescapes varied from submerged calla lilies, to runners of textures (Hydrangea, candles, both floating and votives and blue crystals). Instead of a sweetheart table, Susan and Todd sat in a lounge fit for a king and queen filled with various couches and custom pillows. They had a silhouette theme throughout their wedding as well. From the menu’s, to the cake and table numbers, they made sure to follow their theme from beginning to the end. Susan and Todd ended the night with Smores and cigars on the outside patio with their guests. It truly was a magical event.
