Tell us about the proposal? Did you see it coming? (What long was it in the planning? How did you feel? Nervous, excited, freaking out?)
Dan bought the ring in January 2015 and asked my father’s permission in May. He did not propose until August 22. My dad thought he’d changed his mind because he was taking so long to ask! I knew we’d be married but did not expect it on the day he proposed.

Tell us the one thing that you love most about each other.
Our sense of humor, the way we joke together - the way our personalities balance each other out and how we know we can depend on each other.

If you feel comfortable, share with us something silly or quirky the other person does. 
Dan likes progressive rock and collecting retro video games/comics. Anastasia also likes progressive rock and tea parties. We enjoy terrible movies together.

Anastasia and Daniel took time to get some incredible shots after the ceremony. These are portraits that they will love and cherish for many years.

St. Athanasios Greek Orthodox Church Hosts a Special Day
At this past wedding, the food was delicious, the flowers were inspiring, and the DJ kept the guests entertained for the entire night. It was a classic wedding with all of the traditional wedding activities and traditions. The bride and groom tied the knot in front of friends and family in a beautiful ceremony that symbolized the love that they share.

The Reception
The couple shared their first dance. The speeches contained a right mix of lighthearted fun and touching moments about their connections to the bride and groom and the love that they share. Dinner was a gourmet delight but the real star of the day was the delicious cake. The baker outdid themselves by creating a treat that not only looked remarkable but tasted as good as it looked. If you have been to many weddings, you probably know that this is not always the case. After dinner was served, the real party began as the dance floor was occupied by the guests. The DJ played a great mix of music that was able to satisfy both the young and old. The wedding was a grand celebration and of course, all of these magical moments captured by the talents of David Eric Photography.

Tell us how you first met? Who what when where why? Give us the dirty Details.

We both went to Kean University. Ricky was in a fraternity “Sigma Beta Tau”. Although I was never in a sorority, all of my best friends were in a sister sorority “Nu Theta Chi”. We were at many of the same parties and definitely knew of each other. One Sunday afternoon, my job at Charlie Brown’s called me told me that we were permanently closed and I no longer had a job. I immediately went out in search for a job around the University area and applied for a position at Olive Garden and got it! This is where Ricky and I try began to connect. We worked together closely and went out together at night with the Olive Garden team. We quickly became friends and bonded over our favorite beer at the time (Blue Moon) and called each other twins! I was at first not very interested in going out with Ricky as I was still in my having fun stage and had other priorities. Ricky kept pushing and pushing, no matter how much I pushed back and I finally agreed to our first date at Arirang (Hibachi Place). After this, it was all downhill!

Tell us about the proposal. (Did you see it coming, how long was it in the planning? how did you feel? nervous, excited, freaking out?)                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Ricky told me that we would be going out to dinner on Friday, June 3rd with his family after work. Me getting out of work earlier than him, went on over to his Aunt’s house to wait for him (which is right around the corner from his job). I sat there and chatted with his Aunt until Ricky got there after work. Once he got there his Aunt let us know she needed to run across the street to the neighbor’s house and that she would be right back. Before leaving she let us know not to go in the back room because she just shampooed the rugs. Once his Aunt left, Ricky began to go in the back room and of course, being the usual control freak I am, I began to yell and say “You never listen, everything someone says goes in one ear and out the other. She just told us not to go in the back room”. Once we entered the back room, it was set up with fruit, cheese, snacks, and champagne. I was in utter shock as Ricky got down on one knee and began to propose. I can’t even remember word for word what he said because all I was thinking was “Dammit Marybeth, your bossy self-ruined another cute moment”. As I looked over in this cute and most memorable moment in my life, I see my dog eating and licking everything on the table. The story of our lives. I then said yes and then we began to run and tell our close friends and family before we, of course, made it “social media official”. His aunt and dad brought us out to dinner to celebrate and then, later on, we met our close friends at our favorite bar, Blackthorn to celebrate. This memory will forever be with me and describes our relationship perfectly. Ricky trying to do something cute, and me always yelling. I always tell him, “I can wait to spend the rest of my life yelling at you”  Ricky was originally supposed to propose in Baltimore as we were taking a long weekend there to go see a Yankees game. He then decided to make it a more private and personal moment.

Tell us the one thing you love most about each other.

Marybeth's Answer: His ability to put his whole heart into everything no matter what it is - From work to fish tanks. Ricky's Answer: Ability to put other's before herself

If you feel comfortable, share with us something silly or quirky the other person does.

One of the silliest things that we both do is: We love our dog uncontrollably and have come up with about 5-7 songs that we sing about him/to him. It's become quite the inside joke.

Besides getting married -What is the one thing you are looking forward to on your wedding day?

Marybeth's Answer: The Dessert! Ricky's Answer: The speeches

As part of our blog, we interview the bride and groom about their wedding experience. This is what they said:

Tell us about Jennine: where you grew up, went to school, where you work.
I grew up in East Hanover, NJ. I graduated Hanover Park High School in 2004. I recently started a new job as Assistant Store Manager of Pet Supplies Plus. I previously worked at a home, garden, and pet supply store where I was a department manager and buy. I have a passion for dogs and other animals. Advocate for the pit bull breed and dog mom to rescue pit bull mixes.

How did you guys first meet? Who, what, when, where, why? Give us the dirty details.
We met on the dating app Plenty of Fish in April 2014. I (Jennine) saw his profile and told a friend I was in love! He’s hot, has tattoos, same music interest, and loves pit bulls! It couldn’t get any better! He has two pit bulls that were his world and just as important to him as mine are to me. I figured he was out of my league and just added him to my “favorites.” He messaged me shortly after and the same day we decided to meet for a drink and hung out and talked until 4 in the morning. We went on a second date the next day and before the weekend was over we no longer were on the dating app. We haven’t left each other’s side since.

When did you both know he was the one? Was there something he did?
We had an undeniable connection from the start that just pulled us together. Hard to explain but I got a feeling I never had before. I can feel the love with every little touch, kiss or hug…just a true natural connection. I truly feel that everything in my life happened for a reason and brought us together because that’s what is meant to be. 

Capturing great shots of the Bride and Groom with their bridal party is a very important part of the day. But even more important of course is getting those incredible shots of just the two. These were taken at Waterloo Village in Stanhope, NJ.

Tell us about the proposal? Did you see it coming? (What long was it in the planning? How did you feel? Nervous, excited, freaking out?)
I was completely shocked and did not expect it at all! One night when we were staying at my parents’ house, I had just woken up from a nap. When I got out of the shower, Mike was in the living room “helping” my mom with the TV. He and my mom kept yelling at me to come in there. I was getting annoyed and noticed my dog in the living room at their feet squirming against the couch and asked, “What are you doing to my dog?” I saw that there was something on him. I went in the living room to see my boy, Cash, with a t-shirt on that says something. He was leaning against the couch so half of the words were hard to read. After taking a minute to read, I was in shock and trying to process what was happening. I see my mom recording me when I realize the shirt says, “Will you marry Daddy?” and a ring tied to his collar. I swore at them and asked if this was real. I couldn’t believe this amazing moment was happening and being filmed. But it was all so perfect. It took him a couple of months to have the ring I loved made and tried to plan a night away for us to propose but with our work schedules it was difficult. It all happened for a reason because it was perfect. I wouldn’t want this special moment not to have my baby, Cash, involved. 

Tell us the one thing that you love most about each other.
Compassion and love for each other and the same compassion and love for dogs.

Besides getting married - what is the one thing you are looking forward to on your wedding day?
I am really looking forward to and excited for our first dance. We have not had many chances to enjoy those moment besides one wedding we attended. I feel that it really is a moment for us to have without the hustle of the wedding interrupting and really soak it all in.

Jennine and Mike had a beautiful outdoor ceremony for their wedding. The ceremony took place at Waterloo Village in Stanhope, NJ.
