Jeannette and Steven’s New Years Eve Wedding

You never know when you are going meet the person you’re going to spend the rest of your life with!

On a Thursday summer night in Staten Island, Jeannette and Steven happened to be at Angelina’s Restaurant. When they met, sparks flew! Says Jeannette, “Steven was charming and funny – we hit it off right from the start!“

It was love at first sight, and seven months later on Christmas Day, Steven proposed during breakfast. “It was an amazing surprise and the best Christmas gift I’ll ever get!”

The holidays are Jeannette’s favorite time of year, so they began to plan for a winter wedding and selected the Addison Park in Aberdeen, NJ for their reception. “It’s the most beautiful classy, tasteful place. The decor had our names written all over it, from the chandeliers to the white Christmas trees. Everything was perfect for us!”

All the festive décor at the Addison Park got Jeannette and Steven thinking, why not begin their marriage and ring in the New Year together?

Date and place decided, Jeannette was ready to shop for her bridal gown. “Now that we decided on New Year’s Eve, it was all about BLING! For the dress, I wanted to be bold couture and different. I went to Ct Couture Bridal and consulted with Nelly, my dressmaker. Together, we designed my dream dress.”

For the icing on her dazzling look, Jeannette visited us at Bridal Styles! We created a spectacular asymmetrical headbandwith different shaped Swarovski crystals, finished with a dramatic French net veil, tailor made to complement her one of a kind gown. The day of the wedding French Twist Salon in Staten Island completed Jeannette’s breathtaking look with an elegant updo.

December 31, 2010 was everything Jeannette and Steven dreamed of.

“I envisioned myself glowing from the inside out: my dress, headpiece and our wedding day was all I dreamed of and more! I sparkled from head to toe, and my day was beautiful from the moment I woke up to the very last dance. The most special part of the day was our ceremony at Our Lady Star Of The Sea church. Walking down the aisle of a church packed with friends family and acquaintances as they applauded and gasped when I Steve and I saw each other for the first time on our special day. It was surreal and something I’ll never forget!”

Before heading to the Addison for their reception, Jeannette, Steven, their bridal party, family and Vince from Elite Photography headed to where it all began – Angelina’s Restaurant for pictures. “There we saw the most amazing sunset and we have the pictures to last a lifetime!”

Jeannette and Steven had advice for couples in the midst of planning their own weddings.

“Enjoy! It is the happiest time in our lives so far and we are so happy we enjoyed the planning and took the time to step back and look around and see it all come together we also just simply had a great time together. Good luck to all!”
