From the Bride… Jason and I met while we were in college, introduced by two of our mutual friends..We had an instant connection, and have been inseparable ever since. We have been there for each other through many hard times, but always come out on top, and make each other smile everyday. I can not wait to spend the rest of my life with Jason by my side.
When looking for a wedding venue, we knew the typical over the top gilded and mirrored New Jersey banquet halls were not for us. After searching long and hard I found the Highlands Country Club in Garrison, NY, and instantly fell in love. When we went to visit the venue, the beauty of the grounds and the magnificent ballroom really sold us. Everything about it was charming, from the brick veranda, to the fire pits on the lawn.
I started looking for my dress the second Jason put a ring on my finger. Being very picky and indecisive, I thought dress shopping was going to be a stressful ordeal. To my surprise, I chose the fifth dress I tried on and never looked back. The Christos Julianna dress, summed up everything that I was looking for. I felt absolutely beautiful and did not want to take it off!
Our goal for the wedding was to have a warm and intimate feel with our closet friends and family. We were able to achieve this by keeping our guest list to a hundred and setting up the tables to feel like Thanksgiving dinner. The long tables, and the mix of plated and family style food service helped with the intimate feeling. Candelabras, votive candles, and mint julep cups filled with white peony completed the elegant and warm ambiance.
The favorite part of the wedding for Jason and I was having all of our closest and dearest friends and family members present for our big day. Dancing the night away to our incredible band, The Silver Arrow Band, was the icing on the cake. Without a doubt, it was the best day of our lives!
