Danielle and Joseph September 22, 2012

Danielle and Joe are such a great couple. They both dressed at the Somerset Hills Hotel in Warren, NJ.James the man of honor set up such a cute display on the bed for when they came back with hats and goodies I thought it was so thoughtful. And he was getting such flack about being the man of honor (but did give it back to everyone later that night in his speech). What a bunch of good sports about it. Everyone was joking around the whole day. To me this wasn't work at all it was a blast. Her hair by Gabriella's Salon and makeup by Francine Safante was flawless. Once Danielle was dressed she was a vision. Her gown by Bijou Bridal was absolutely exquisite.

The boys looked great in their tuxedos from Biltmore Tuxedo. They were so funny. Everyone had t-shirts made for the wedding including the man of honor with their title for the day. Many of them changed into them for the reception. They were just hanging out having a good old time getting ready. And waiting for the first look to happen. Yes, They saw each other before the ceremony. It was so romantic, then hysterical watching all the guys & girls taking turns peeking outside to see what was going on. I'm sure some of them showed up on facebook that night.

Afterward everyone hopped onto the hotel shuttle and off we went to The Stonehouse at Stirling Ridge for the ceremony & the reception. I loved this place. It is such a pretty venue. The outside dinning area reminded me of a some of the outdoor restaurants in Europe. All eclectic furnishing and twinkle lights everywhere. Great place for photos. Jerry especially loved the mirror wall outside. I loved all the fire pits set up with couches for guests to chat around at night. The reception room was so elegantly decorated by Urban Designs. Loved the color palate chosen. The cakes (yes there was a grooms cake too) by Rudy's Pastry Shop was beautiful. When the sun went down, the party didn't stop. Everyone had a good time all night long. The groom and his sister even got up and did a lip sync duet. What a performance. You can tell by the way everyone talked about these guys during their speeches that these guys were meant for each other. This was a pleasure. Hope you enjoy the photos...............
