So it’s the start of wedding season 2017. I have three weddings this year so far. Some I am looking forward to others I am not. Photos will be posted after events with summaries of how it was set up according to the taste of the couple/bride. Each of the couples are very unique and very different from one another.
Wedding # 1: Joshua Heller and Hallie Thaler
Bridal Shower: May 28, 2017
Location: Hallie’s sister’s house
The shower was tasteful and calm. It was not overwhelming for the bride, her sister, and her mother. People seemed to be having fun. A few games were played and she opened gifts after food.
Bachelorette Brunch: June 24 at 11:30 am
Date of Wedding: July 2, 2017
Location: Bayview House at Captain Bills, Bay Shore, NY
so the wedding was nice. not going to lie but when the wedding and reception is in the name room it is a little weird for me. I know the couple had a very tight budget so i completely understand. Had a lot of fun even with out my contacts (yes my contacts clouded up after the ceremony and i had to throw them out).
Wedding # 2: Laina Briedis and Matthew Hawryluk
Bridal Shower: June 11 ,2017
Location: Oakdale, NY hosted by the maid of honor
It was super nice. The Hidden Oak Cafe was such a beautiful place located in Bayard Cutting Arboretum in Great River, NY. The tea room we were in looked over a large area or grass over looking a lake. The cafe alone was a combination of the vintage and nature that the bride loves. Each person got their own pot of tea which was so tasty. By the way it was a tea party bridal shower.
Date of Wedding: October 14, 2017
Location: Bleinheim Hill Farm, Jefferson, NY
It was actually a lot more fun than expected. Beautiful weather, didn’t smell like we were on a farm, and it was wedding fit for the couple. The barn is where the reception was was a perfect size for the set up of their wedding. The only downfall of the entire weekend was that the gift was stolen from our hotel room while we were out to lunch before the wedding and our friend had 200 dollars stollen from his room during the wedding.
Wedding #3 Michael Yatco and Danielle Schwartz
Bridal Shower: Saturday, July 29
Location: My aunt’s house: Childhood home of the Groom
It was a fun Bbq. A lot of drinking with family. Didn’t stay for present opening because of the puppy wish i had though.
Date of Wedding: November 11, 2017
Location: St. Lucia
Was so much fun. Warm weather the entire time Would love to go back just for a vacation and to explore more of the island. We went to one of the block parties the night before the wedding and was so much fun.
