Yanita and Eddie’s Fairytale Wedding

Tuesday, August 6th, 2013

When Eddie caught a glimpse of Yanita, it was love at first sight…but it took him a little courting before this beautiful Bridal Styles bride agreed to a first date. From Yanita:

“We were at a mutual friend’s party, and Eddie liked me as soon as he saw me. After the party, our mutual friend told me that Eddie liked me, but I didn’t want to ‘officially’ meet him. But Eddie was determined and asked me to be his friend on Facebook. After two weeks of private messages on Facebook I realized that we have a lot in common, and with my sister and mom encouraging me, I decided to go on a date and the rest is history!”

All it took was that one date, and Yanita was hooked!

“After our first date I came home and told my mom ‘this is the boy I am going to marry.’ It’s weird because our first date was not perfect! He took me to lunch in Manhattan where we shared a table with other people, that was weird. The menu consisted of all spicy food…and I’m allergic to spicy. But despite that, there was a very strong connection between us. On our third date he told me that he loved me and after two months we started living together. He fit in perfectly with my family, and that was very important to me.”

So, on a winter’s eve, when Eddie made a strange request, despite the cold, Yanita played along and got the surprise of her life!

“He took me to my favorite little restaurant in NYC and after dinner took me under the Brooklyn Bridge. He knew I loved it there. He was determined to propose that night in March. It was freezing. When we parked by the Brooklyn Bridge and got out of the car, all I wanted to do was get back in the car. Eddie wanted to go by the water and I kept telling him that he should go and I’d wait for him. Finally, I gave in and went. It was worth being cold, because that was when he proposed!”

With their date set for July 14, the two started planning. Luckily, Yanita’s sister had been married only less than a year before! Between her mom and sister, planning their wedding at the Pleasantdale Chateau in New Jersey was almost a breeze.

“I got lucky that my sister had her wedding seven months before I had mine. That made my planning process a lot easier. I used some of the same vendors she used and already knew everything that needed to be done.”

Though all Yanita knew was that she wanted was a regal look, choosing her gown was, as they say, a piece of cake!

“I wanted to look like a princess. I didn’t have a specific dress style in mind, and so I went to try on different styles to see what looked best, then had my Pnina Tornai inspired dress custom-made.”

Next, Yanita visited us at Bridal Styles Boutique, where, as if everything was meant to be, she selected her bridal accessories and cake monogram in record time.

“Choosing my accessories was the simplest process. I knew I was getting my accessories from Bridal Styles Boutique ever since I went there with my sister to chose her headpiece for her wedding. With the biggest selection and the high professionalism, it took one visit of half an hour to decide on my dream headpiece. My headpiece was actually put together out of three different pieces because it was hard to narrow down to just one and it was made exactly the way I wanted it. I wanted a beautiful bracelet that was very sparkly to complete my look and got it at Bridal Styles as well.”

When the day arrived, it was more than either Yanita and Eddie had dreamed…

“It started off with hair and makeup with my sister in my bridal suite surrounded by champagne, different drinks and snacks. Then my mother and grandmother joined us. It was just a great time from the moment I woke up that day. Once I was all ready to go, pictures started, which was such a blast. The weather was great for the middle of July!

We just had a great time at our wedding and reception…it was more than either of us imagined. Having family and friends that flew in overseas just to be there with us was incredible. I’m so glad that we decided before our day to not drink anything (alcoholic) until the last hour of our wedding so we could take everything in and keep it crystal clear in our memories! My husband says the most memorable part of the wedding for him is his wife, and I’ll never forget what it was like to see him waiting for me at the end of the aisle.

Our wonderful day ended with the two of us changing into something a lot more comfortable to enjoy an after party with our closest friends.“

Now happy newlyweds, Yanita and Eddie offer this advice to planning couples:

Yanita: “No matter how much you plan or how much effort you put in, the day of the wedding there will most likely be something that’s not exactly the way you wanted it. Don’t let it ruin your special day. You can’t do anything about it the day of, so just keep smiling and forget about it. Only you know how it was supposed to be. Another very important piece of advice is to either wear flats or have flats to change into. I wore flats, and after being on my feet literally the whole day, my feet probably hurt less than any other females at the wedding!”

Eddie: “Embrace and enjoy every moment. Savor every moment with your wife. Be yourself and don’t be nervous.”

Lana & Edward’s Silver Anniversary

Tuesday, June 7th, 2011

This month, our Bridal Styles bride of the month is extra special… she’s got twenty-five years of experience!

We’ve known Lana and Edward for twenty-seven years, and were even a part of their bridal party. We’ve had the pleasure of watching their beautiful family grow over the years, and can honestly say Lana and Edward are just as in love now as they were twenty-five years ago.

It was such an honor to help such wonderful friends celebrate their silver anniversary earlier this year.

But before we tell you all about Lana and Edward’s magical 25th anniversary party, we have to share their sweet love story.

It all started with a photograph…

“Edward used to work as a photographer in a Russian restaurant called Paradise. I came there to a party with my parents. He was in the hallway taking pictures of the people that were coming in. When I came in, he asked my parents permission to take my picture, which he did. We talked for a while and at the end of the night he asked for my phone number.”

When they started dating, Lana quickly knew he was the one “the way he loved me and treated me it couldn’t have been anyone else. 25 years later, nothing has changed.”

Edward felt the same way, expressing his intention with a proposal.

“It wasn’t so much of a proposal, but a statement. Two months after we started dating, we were sitting in his old car and out of nowhere he said ‘you know that I’m going to marry you and even though I don’t have the ring yet, I want to make sure that you know it’s only you that I want to be with.’ Because we were so young, I was 16 and he was 18, he wanted me to know that he is very serious. Ten months later he gave me the actual ring.”

After a year-long engagement, Lana and Edward were wed on March 15, 1986 at the Kingsway Jewish Center.

Lana’s wedding day was everything she had ever dreamed of. “For me, it was a very magical day. The wedding was like a royal ball, with a big gorgeous gown and a very handsome prince. Everything was perfect from beginning to end. It rained the whole week, but on our wedding day the sun was shining and so was I.”

Her enchanted wedding day had an amazing surprise in store!

“To top it all off, we also had a very special guest at the wedding who came to sing for us. It was someone whose music I loved for a long time, and by pure accident he happened to be in America performing. He is a singer from Israel and a big star there, named Shimi Tavori. My mom and I had to do a lot of persuading to have him agree to come and sing for us. It was very special to us to have him there, especially after seeing the looks of joy on all of our guests’ faces. When he sang it gave you goose bumps and sent shivers down your spine. It was an incredible evening filled the love and support of our family and closest friends. What more could we ask for? We were the happiest couple on earth.“

Twenty-five years (and three beautiful kids) later, it was time to celebrate their silver anniversary…and Edward thought a magnificent party was the only way to mark the occasion.

“I wanted to go away on a second honeymoon. I said that I was tired of planning so many parties. We just had our daughter’s wedding and our son’s Bar Mitzvah the year before, and I just wanted to get away. My husband is usually not into parties, but he was very persistent in having this one. He said that an occasion like this must be celebrated. It’s not every day that you can celebrate a quarter of a century with the same person and still be just as in love just as you were 25 years ago.“

Since Lana and her mom traditionally plan all the family parties, they knew exactly where to start.

“When you are planning a big party, the first and most important thing to do is picking the right venue. I wanted to make sure our venue was big and spacious and that no matter where they are sitting, people can see everything, so I chose Rasputin. Next I made sure my video and photographer were available. After that, we decided on a theme and worked with my decorator, Aramat Events. Another important detail when planning a party is to have everything very organized and planned out for the whole night. Timing is very important. If you cant do it yourself – get a party planner. At the end of it all, enjoy your special day.”

This time, though, Edward helped, even choosing the theme.

“At first I couldn’t decide on a theme, because I thought that similar to a wedding, a silver anniversary should be very elegant and beautiful with a silver color theme. Then my husband said, ‘why don’t you do something with clocks and watches?’ I was very surprised and said, ‘what does it have to do with the anniversary? It wont fit into the elegant theme.’ He said that clocks represent time, all the years that we spent together. Again he insisted that I give it some thought and try to incorporate it into the party. I told my decorator about this idea and we stared thinking and talking about it. We had to make sure that it fit and look good together. So we decided to keep one side of the room beautiful and very elegant, and the other a trip down memory lane, beginning with our wedding until the present day. We decided to get big clocks and put our pictures in them, and for the tables we had smaller clocks for table numbers. It worked out perfectly.”

For such a special occasion, of course Lana had to have a spectacular outfit.

“I knew that I didn’t want a ball gown this time but a more slimming look that would be both sexy and elegant. It wasn’t easy finding a dress especially when you have an image in your mind, but after some serious searching, I finally found the style and color I wanted at Monica’s Bridal. It was perfect for the occasion. Not too bridal and not over the top. “

Most importantly, she had to have dazzling, gorgeous accessories!

“Then came time to choose my hair accessory. The only place that I would even think of going is Bridal Styles. I wanted a piece that would make a statement and could be seen from anywhere and also be elegant and classy. When I came into the store my head was spinning from all the beautiful pieces that were there. I didn’t know how to choose, every piece was more beautiful than the other. Then I explained the way I was planning to wear my hair and what I wanted the final look to be like. Edward and Elaine were very helpful and patient in the time they spent listening to what I wanted and gave me all the needed attention.
At the end they came up with the perfect piece. It was gorgeous, and the perfect accessory to finish my look.”

On March 18th, Lana and Edward marked their 25th anniversary with a memorable, meaningful event that honored the past and celebrated the future.

“ One of the things that made that day our own is our first dance. It was so special because it was to the same song that we danced to on our wedding and even more so because we had a special choreography done to that song. My husband actually insisted on it and really wanted to do it. It was very important to him and he tried really hard because he knew it meant a lot to me. He said, ’I want to make you proud of me’ and laughed. He did an amazing job but I am always proud of him with or without the dance!!!”

Just like their wedding day, Lana and Edward’s anniversary had a big surprise in store.

“My mom wanted to bring the real memories back from our wedding so, she came up on stage and announced that we had a special guest who was also a guest singer at the wedding 25 years ago. And out comes Shimi Tavori. When I saw him tears started running down my face. My husband was just shocked. We couldn’t believe he was there. He came out with my favorite song. It was a very a difficult process getting him there, but my mom managed to do it. Seeing him and hearing him sing was like reliving our wedding day. It’s very hard to put into words how we felt. And the looks that I saw on people’s faces were the same as they were on my wedding day. The most awestruck were my children. They stood there and listened to him with joy and pleasure.  For me, it was so special to see that a quarter of a century later we had the same love and support from all the same people that were with us at the wedding. This was not just a regular party. It was a real stroll down memory lane, a celebration of life, your family and all the happy years you’ve spent together.

It was almost like a second wedding but with our children there. We are very proud and thankful for our beautiful family.”

So what advice could a happily married (for 25 years!) couple offer others planning their weddings today?

“I would say to love and respect each other. Never take anything for granted. Try to spend as much time with each other as possible, because we never know what tomorrow brings. Listen to each other and try to meet in the middle without arguing. Time is very precious so use it wisely.”

Beautiful words and advice from a  wonderful couple we’re proud to call cherished friends. We wish you and your family love, happiness and joy!
