We can’t say enough about how fantastic Fiore Films is over here at SMP. Each one of their films has been a delight to watch, and this romantic wedding at the Trump National Golf Club is no exception! Assigned with the task of capturing their niece’s wedding, Fiore Films works their magic (with a special shout out to CLY BY MATTHEW for the beautiful photos), and you won’t want to miss any of it below!
From Fiore Films… This is a very special wedding for us — the wedding of our own very own deliciously beautiful niece. What more is there to say? Kylee and Anthony you are amazing… and ridiculously silly together! We love you both so so much and are so excited to see this shared with Style Me Pretty fans!
From the beautiful Bride… Anthony and I met on a blind date 3 years ago. As reluctant as I was, I gathered up the courage to go and I’m grateful every day that I did. Anthony, a Long Island born, Italian, sarcastic, sweet but fresh, outgoing personality clicked with my guarded, sarcastic, fun loving, Jersey girl personality. A few weeks later we went on a double date and the rest is history. When you know, you know. We fell in love instantly. We moved in together after 4 months and were engaged 2 years later. The proposal caught all of my friends and family, including myself, completely off guard.
Anthony is in Law Enforcement, allowing him the ability to pull a few things off that we civilians couldn’t. When he was ready to pop the question He had to think of a creative way to surprise me. We had dinner reservations but had to make a stop to meet one of the guys he works with to “drop something off to him”. Before I knew it we were at the beach in Newport, RI (where we lived) where an officer stood with an unlit traffic sign. Shortly after I learned that traffic sign was about to change my life forever. After much negotiating, Anthony convinced me to get out of the car and “Kylee Will You Marry Me?” shined big and bright on the traffic sign. I never thought the day would come and it was such a surreal moment.
Living in Newport, RI at the time with family and friends in New Jersey and Long Island, we decided to get married in Bedminster, NJ at Trump National Golf Club. We could not have picked a more exclusive, beautiful and romantic venue to celebrate the best day of our lives. With countless hours spent on Pinterest, Style Me Pretty, and other wedding blogs I knew I wanted a romantic, elegant fall wedding. Walking into the ballroom at Trump and seeing nothing but chandeliers and ceiling to floor glass windows surrounding the entire room we knew Trump National was perfect for the romantic theme we wanted.
With a year to plan, November 15, 2014 approached before we knew it. We began our day at the private villas at Trump. I stayed in a villa with my 9 bridesmaids the night before where we all got ready the morning of the wedding. Beige and Blanc came to do our hair and make up, while Fiore Films and Matthew from CLY CREATION met us there to start capturing our special day. In no time at all it was time for Anthony and I to do our first look. The entire day from start to finish was a fairytale and so dreamlike. From the moment I walked down the stairs and tapped on Anthony’s shoulder for him to turn and see me was when it all started to get real!
I highly recommend that other couples do a first look. It not only allowed us to see each other sooner but we took our pictures before the ceremony. It gave our entire wedding party quality time to hang out in the quietness before the craziness began! And of course helped with my nerves! After the first look and the pictures it was time to walk down the aisle to say our I Do’s.
From that point on the evening was filled with nothing but love, laughter, food, fun, drinks, and dancing. Before we knew it the night was over and we were so sad to see it end. The one thing everyone told us was the day goes by so fast and to enjoy every second of it. And boy were they all correct. Take a minute to cherish the moment and take it all in. Otherwise do what works for you and don’t worry about what others such as parents, friends, and family are telling you to do. Once the day comes there is nothing you can do to fix any little hiccup. Enjoy every moment of it because it literally goes by in the blink of an eye.
I couldn’t be more thankful to have Fiore Films capture our special day. I can’t watch our teaser without crying no matter how many times I see it. Fiore Films is extraordinary and nothing like anything I have ever seen. Not only does she capture every moment and detail of the day but the music she attaches, the lighting, the angles, the emotions she captures are unreal. I’ve seen many videos but I have never seen better work than Fiore Films. I am also lucky to say that Sharrone Calafiore from Fiore Films is my aunt. I was blessed enough to have my own family capture the best day of our life!
