Jeannette and Steven’s New Years Eve Wedding

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011

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!”

Lana and Ilia

Monday, November 8th, 2010

Lana and Ilia met on a night when they both would rather have stayed home! Instead, their best friends dragged each of  them out for dancing at Guest House in NYC. Lana noticed Ilia at the bar almost right away as she was passing , and after a trip to the ladies room, Lana’s friend “literally took my hand and said to Ilia, ‘Hi, this is my friend Lana.’” They spent the rest of the night dancing together, and from that moment on were inseparable!

Lana knew Ilia was “the one because right from the start he was completely different from all the guys I ever dated. He was a true gentleman, very punctual, caring, honest and not once would make me wonder or think twice. I just felt it inside. “

On Christmas Eve in 2009, Ilia “proposed in front of the whole family. We were all opening presents and his was the last present. He got on his knee and asked me to marry him. It was so emotional, everyone was crying out of happiness!”

During their year and a half engagement, Lana and Ilia did all the planning themselves. Lana “wanted to have our wedding to be completely different from all the weddings I have ever been to.” So, she had almost everything custom-made, from invitations, napkins, and place cards to table numbers, aisle runner, menus, programs, and, of course, her dress, headpiece and veils!

“Ever since I was a little girl, I dreamed about my wedding… I always wanted to be a princess on my wedding day. My dress was designed by the most talented wedding dress designer, Galit Couture. Ever since I was a little girl walking or driving by her store, I told myself that whenever I get married I will only go to her to get my dress. It was completely custom made for me from sketch. A lot of ideas Galit and Andrey came up with and a lot of ideas I threw in, and it was absolutely stunning. I got soooo many compliments! People still talk about it. My bridesmaids even jokingly said it belongs in a Museum!”

A one of a kind wedding dress had to have accessories to match. ” I wanted to have a completely different look and to compliment my dress. I chose to go to Bridal Styles and the result was so stunning and so different from everything and was put together so beautifully. They were so helpful and worked with me to create exactly what I wanted… a beautiful one of a kind headpiece and custom made veils.” Lana wore a stunning handcrafted Swarovski crystal band that wrapped around her hair and the layers of  veils were sprinkled with hundreds of crystals that glimmered as she walked. She truly achieved her dream of looking like a princess.

Lana and Ilia’s wedding day was as unique as her wedding dress and accessories. They chose De Seversky Mansionfor their celebration, falling in love with its grounds, antique décor, privacy, and exclusive feel.

On August 21, Lana and Ilia’s wedding day, there was a “string quartet playing….and waiters greeting guests with a coral and teal martini called ‘Lana & Ilia.’ We used lit candles as place cards, had a custom made coral and teal and silver money box, an engravable signature frame. In every room we had huge posters on easels of our engagement photo-shoot. We had live music by Emperyal Stings for the cocktail hour and ceremony. The ceremony was at night and was just so beautiful and elegant with lots of candles and lighting. Our reception also had up lighting and beautiful centerpieces by Flower Michel! All of our guests were so amazed with everything….it was a once in a life experience and worth every penny. It was truly the most beautiful day of our lives.”

Though their wedding was all Lana had dreamed it would be, it was her ceremony that meant the most as they found themselves in front of Keith Guglizza, their officiant. “It hit us that we are getting married. I honestly have no words to describe how beautiful it was.”

For all the other couples planning their wedding, Lana had some advice:

“Don’t stress, try to enjoy your day as much as you can, no matter how much you try for everything to be perfect, a few little things will still go wrong, but at the end you are marrying your best friend and the love of your life and all of your hard work will pay off!”
