Jenny and Barry married in a traditional Christian ceremony January 5, 2014. For the ceremony Jenny wore a stunning gown with ruffle accents and sheer sleevelets with beaded and lace detailing throughout. The bride chose a veil with scalloped edges under which her hair was worn in a half up-do. For jewelry Jenny chose a simple silver chain with a turquoise pendant. Her bridesmaids wore blue satin floor-length dresses with empire waists. The bridesmaids carried white rose bouquets while the bride chose a contrast of blue and white roses for her bouquet.
For the ceremony, Barry wore a black tuxedo with white vest, white tie and shirt and a white rose in his lapel. The groomsmen complimented the bridesmaids with black tuxedos and blue ties.
The couple chose an indoor wedding ceremony with candles and white rose petals lining the aisles. A fire crackled in the fireplace. As part of the ceremony, the couple lit a unity candle.
At the reception the newlyweds shared their own table that was decorated with a blue tablecloth and flowers. Centerpieces on the tables were harlequin candles.
A simple but elegant wedding cake sat three tiers high with curlicue designs on each layer and a monogrammed ‘L’ on top.
Dinner was served buffet style. The DJ played a trivia game with guests to determine which table went first, second, third and so on to get their dinner.
After dinner the couple took to the dance floor for their first dance as husband and wife to Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You followed by a family dance to You Raise Me Up.
Congratulations Jenny and Barry. May your faith and love carry you through the beauty of life. We wish you the best.

Meghan and Gus brought friends and family together for their wedding ceremony and reception December 27, 2013. The depth of their love was clear as the bride teared up after the ceremony when her groom took her in his arms.
Meghan brought a classic look to the ceremony with a strapless gown with drop waist and mermaid flair. The bridal veil was edged with scalloped lace bringing an elegant simplicity to the look. Jewelry included a pearl necklace, pearl bracelet and diamond earrings. The bridal bouquet was filled with orange, yellow and white hydrangeas and roses. Under her gown Meghan wore a pair of pink heels with black polk-a-dots. The bridesmaids offered a bright flash of color with red strapless ankle length gowns with a slit up the front.
To meet his bride, Gus wore a black tuxedo with black tie and white handkerchief. His groomsmen complimented him with black tuxedos and bow ties.
The indoor ceremony showcased candles and red rose petals along the aisle and candles on the altar. During the ceremony, Meghan’s cousin gave a reading and Meghan’s cousin’s husband sang a song. One of their guests played the guitar and sang.
At the reception, both the maid of honor and best man gave toasts. The bride’s father also spoke and told stories about the bride growing up. Their first dance was to Lou Reed’s Perfect Day.
The bride’s mother made kettle corn for the guests, which was well appreciated. To compliment the salty was the sweet, with a three-tiered wedding cake with piping on each layer. Boxes of candy were favors.
Congratulations Meghan & Gus. May your lives always compliment one another and your days be filled with smiles. We wish you the best.
