Last Saturday I kicked off a new season with my first wedding of the year and what a wedding it was! Lisa and Matt gathered their friends and family at one of my very favorite venues- The Lodge at Malibou Lake. In a week full of overcast days, this Saturday had the most perfect weather to usher this fantastic couple into their marriage.
Lisa's "Something Borrowed" were a beautiful pair of pearl earrings from her Mother-In-Law, Mary Lou.
The open back on Lisa's dress was "Chef's Kiss".
Matt's suit had an amazing touch- his and Lisa's initials embroidered along with their wedding date!
Lisa's hair and makeup were done by the ever talented, Betsy DiFrancesca.
Lisa and Matt not only did a first look but they also recited their own personal and private vows to one another prior to the ceremony. I'm such a huge fan of the decision to keep your vows intimate.
Matt's sister, Maureen officiated a touching ceremony peppered with loving humor.
Welcome to your cocktail hour!
There's nothing quite like getting your arms around a long lost friend.
There are many things to love about The Lodge but the food that Chef Cordelia and her team serves up is at the top of the list!
The MARGA-REID-A and MATT-HATTAN were the signature cocktails of the evening.
The sister of the bride gave a heartfelt speech and the best man delivered the laughs!
The (very delicious) cake threatened to pull a Tower of Pisa but the newlyweds still pulled off a spectacular cutting.
At one point I heard a guest say "I knew Lisa was a sexy dancer but I had no idea Matt was such a sexy dancer too!" And its true. these two can cut a rug like no other!
The moment Lisa realized she never wanted the night to end.
They truly are the perfect match. Thank you forever to this amazing couple for trusting me with their wedding memories.
