From the Bride… To celebrate our first anniversary as a married couple, I thought it would be meaningful to dedicate a post to my husband. As this blog was a huge source of inspiration for us, I thought this would be the perfect outlet to show my appreciation to him for being able to carry out the vision I had for our special day.

Initially, as a bride, I was overwhelmed with the amount of choices and felt that I wasn’t able to have a sense of an overall theme for the wedding. It started out as a process of elimination, as I came to realize more of what I didn’t want. In terms of choosing a theme, prior to being engaged I always thought I was so confident in what I wanted. Yet, I came to realize that my choice of rustic flowers didn’t tie in with our modern venue, and although there were many individual designs I had in mind, it didn’t necessarily mean it all tied in together.

Ultimately, our venue was our biggest dilemma and although I had envisioned it to be in NYC we needed it to be in NJ where it would be closer to our church. Our options felt limited and frankly, the ones that were a realistic possibility felt a bit outdated and gaudy. I almost lost all hope in finding a venue until my husband told me he had found a place that was close to the city, yet still within distance to our church. I always wondered how a bride was to know when she found “the one” in terms of venue, dress, etc., and I can say with certainty that as soon as we saw our venue, there was no point in looking any further. The Maritime Parc is a newly built space located on Liberty State Park where the greenery of NJ is set against the backdrop of the city skyline. The interior of the building reminded us of the Guggenheim Museum, which we thought was appropriate as my husband proposed to me at MOMA, where we had our first date. This venue also was a clean, blank canvas where we could really tailor it to what we wanted.

Thankfully, I had my husband’s guidance and practicality in terms of not getting too emotionally involved in the endless decisions. In the end, it was he who ended up choosing the bridesmaid dress, flowers, many of the vendors, etc. Once we established that he had the better judgment, I focused my efforts in making our wedding more meaningful by involving and enlisting help from our close friends and family. My college roommate who majored in opera sang for our dance while another friend took our engagement pictures. Not only that, but with huge help from friends, we made a video to surprise my husband during the reception. I had filmed scenes at our college campus and all the places that meant something to us in the city of Boston where we first met. (Who knew a 5 minute video would be such a labor of love?)

The night before our wedding, my husband and I promised each other that whatever hiccups we may encounter on the actual day, we would put it behind us and enjoy every moment of it. We told ourselves we wouldn’t lose sight of the reason we were getting married in the first place. And thankfully enough, everything went smoothly and we had such a blast. I’m certain it was because of our bridal party and vendors who played a key role. In the end, you also have to remember to leave it up to the vendors to do their job best. This was such an unforgettable experience for both of us and I’m grateful that my husband took the reins in playing the “bridezilla” role. Just as he was able to connect the dots in terms of my vision, I’m confident that our relationship will continue to strive where our strengths and weaknesses complement one another.

From the Bride… “Katie and Ryan are getting married? This is going to be THE best PARTY ever” – the reaction of all of our most beloved friends and family upon getting engaged. And so, Ryan (my high school sweetheart) and I and I set out to plan what we hoped would be the best party ever, full of love and happiness – and in our hearts, it was better than anything we could have ever imagined.

I will never forget the rolls royce ride to the church with my parents, and the way Ryan looked as he saw me for the first time walking down the aisle. There are a countless moments I can bring to mind, that will always bring a smile (and even a few tears) to my face.

Having both grown up in NJ, and currently living in Hoboken, we choose the Liberty House in Jersey City which fit our vision perfectly. An open room full of air and light, with an amazing view of the Manhattan skyline – the perfect venue to deliver our once in a lifetime party. Having made my entrance in a beautiful tulle skirt overlay, I slipped the skirt off to celebrate in my “party dress” from Anne Barge, all night long.

The day was simply perfect, and in looking back we would not change a single thing, because in the end, what matters most is being surrounded by all your special people as you marry the person you love more than anything else in the whole entire world.

From Brklyn View Photography… Jess and Jon’s love story was a long time in the making. They’ve been together for over eight years before becoming husband and wife. Jess and Jon wanted their wedding day to reflect all the things that they love to do together which involves going to the movies, being with the friends and celebrating with their families. Jess designed and created everything from her movie themed save-the-dates, invitations, table numbers and wedding favors. Jess and her sister spent three days creating delicious confections for their guests to take home in their personalized concession boxes. Jess gave her bridesmaids beautiful bow bracelets in pastel colored macaron boxes and Jon gave his groomsmen purple ties as their way of saying “thank you” for being a part of their wedding. As Jess & Jon were saying their vows, Jess was overcome with emotion. She realized at that moment, all the planning and preparation for their marriage was becoming a reality. I am so incredibly honored to have been there with Jess & Jon to witness them become husband and wife and photograph their wedding day. Wishing you both a lifetime of movies, laughs and happiness! Congratulations Jess & Jon!
