Wedding Postcard – Veronica

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

Bridal Styles Bride Veronica and Kate Middleton have a few things in common:

Both were beautiful brides, both wore gorgeous bridal hair jewelry and both had adorable flower girls… who would rather have been somewhere else!

Julie & John’s Elegant, Glamorous Wedding

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

Handsome and sweet, John caught Julie’s eye the very first time they met six years ago…except she was in another relationship. It wasn’t until three years later when they were reintroduced by friends that John seized his chance and asked Julie out.

Within a few dates, Julie realized that he was The One, so several months later when he proposed, she was totally overcome.

“After a full 7 course meal at our favorite restaurant, Seasonal in NYC, the waiter brought out a plate with ‘I Love You’ written on it in chocolate and the ring in the middle of the plate. John proceeded to proclaim his love to me and asked me to marry him, but at this point I was in a total daze. After asking me several times I finally came back to reality and said ‘YES!’”

With a year to plan their June 11, 2011 wedding at The Hanover Manor, Julie got right to work!

“The planning process was both stressful and fun at the same time. I wanted to make sure that not one single detail was over looked and spent a lot of time researching wedding ideas. The style of the wedding evolved around plum and silver colors with crystal accents everywhere.”

With most of the day’s details decided, Julie was ready for the best part – choosing her wedding day look.

“I wanted my look to be romantic and elegant with a touch of boldness and to exude my personality. I had envisioned my self in a dress with pick-ups and crystals that extenuated my petite body type and also flowed gracefully. I found my Pninia Tornai dress at Kleinfeld, the only boutique to carry her collection. I wanted my accessories to be exquisite, over the top and glamorous. I went with an antique style look that included chandelier earrings, a bangle bracelet and a stunning crystal headpiece, hand made at Bridal Styles Boutique. These pieces tied my look together perfectly and made me feel like a true bride on our wedding day.”

Before Julie and John knew it, they were wed at the Greek Orthodox Church in Clifton, NJ and on their way to Hanover Manor for an incredible celebration that totally exceeded all their expectations.

“Our wedding day was one of the best and most meaningful days of my life. To see my vision and hard work come to life was amazing. I was overcome with intense feelings of gratitude, love, and devotion.

The reception was full of energy and excitement. The abundance of food choices during cocktail hour enticed my guest’s palates leaving them excited for more. The unforgettable Viennese Hour was the perfect ending to the night. Everyone has been raving about our wedding ever since.”

What Makes a Princess?

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

Friday, April 29 is right around the corner, and you know that that means – The Royal Wedding!

Many designers are showing full-skirted “royal” inspired gowns at the runway shows, but without crowning jewels, they don’t seem quite fit for a princess. After all, tiaras put the “T” in royalty!

We recently read that, after Catherine’s engagement, the Queen invited her to Buckingham Palace to choose the tiara she wanted to wear on her wedding day. From a selection including the stunning Cambridge Lovers Knot Tiara worn by Princess Diana and others that haven’t seen the light of day for decades, Catherine chose The One…except we don’t get to see it until April!

Catherine is not the only princess who gets to choose from an array of gorgeous, glittering bridal crowns. Every girl can feel like royalty on her wedding day – it all starts with the perfect tiara!

Princess-to-be Catherine has chosen her tiara. Have you?

Yedenny & Kevin- Valentine’s Day Wedding

Monday, February 14th, 2011

While gathered with their family and friends on Christmas Eve 2008, Kevin asked Yedenny to choose any gift under the tree to open. When she couldn’t decide, he selected one, which she opened to reveal a white box. Within that was another box, sealed with tape. Inside that was yet another small white box that held a little black jewelry box, which Kevin gently took from her hand. Falling to one knee, he proposed. “My heart was racing, my knees were shaking, I was speechless, I was very happy and very surprised. It was a great moment in my life!”

Since their anniversary was February 1, Yedenny and Kevin chose Valentine’s Day 2010 for their wedding date, perfect for the color to which she was drawn! “I decided on the color red, because to me it means passion, love, romance, and it was a winter wedding.” Red and white wove an elegant Valentine’s Day thread throughout their wedding day, including a dusting of rose petals on the cake and MIKASA crystal heart jewelry box favors.

To go with her tailor-made wedding gown, Yedenny began searching for one-of-a-kind bridal accessories. “I wanted a headpiece that was different, elegant, unique. I went to many boutiques and everything seemed cheap. After searching on line, I found Bridal Styles Boutique and was mesmerized by the collection. I immediately knew I had found THE PLACE for my accessories. I drove to the store and fell in love with the place, its selection and the customer service. The owner was very, very helpful and very friendly. He helped me select the perfect accessories. I love my headpiece!”

By the time their wedding day drew near, everything was in place. Their local church, Blessed Sacrament, and Terrace on The Park were booked. All their vendors, from Metro Floral Decorators and US Open Limousines to make-up artist Lilly Rivera (from My Fair Wedding with David Tutera) and photographers Pinilla Studio were scheduled. The only thing that threatened not to cooperate was the weather.

“Two weeks before the wedding, I was very worried because around that time we had several snow storms and I was worried about the weather on my wedding day, but God was on our side and the day of my wedding was not as cold for that time of the year. It was bright and clear and most of the snow had melted.”

After a great night’s sleep at her mom’s, Yedenny awoke on her wedding day ready and rested. “I must say, that I did not feel nervous, or worried or stressed…It was one of the best and most calmed days I had ever felt. I felt as if nothing could stress me out on that day. I was positive, I felt a very good energy from everyone around me. I was very happy. My mom was super excited. Since I am her only child, she would be the one walking me down the isle and giving me away. If anything she was the nervous one. My bridesmaid and maid of honor all met at my moms place, where we all got dressed. My husband was at his place with his family. We could not wait to get to the church! It was a very special day.”

Their reception at Terrace on The Park was the celebration they hoped it would be and more. “The view of the city from the Terrace is amazing! The service was amazing and our banquet manager and the rest of the staff did an incredible job…..I danced the whole night, I did not stop, I made sure that I enjoyed my wedding all the way. Once I got all the professional pictures out of the way, my husband and I were a party machine. It makes no sense to spend so much money on a wedding and then stay sitting the whole night, I didn’t care about make-up or hair, I wanted to party!”

Fondest memories for the bride and groom?

Yedenny will always remember “getting married in church, having my mom walk me down the aisle, and saying ‘I do.’ Looking into my husband’s eyes, knowing he is the man I want to spend the rest of my life with was amazing.”

 Kevin feels the same way about their wedding day, but being with everyone they loved is a memory he cherishes. “I know the typical answer would be when I first saw my wife walking down the aisle, or the moment we said ‘I do’…but I have always known how beautiful my wife is, and I had known for a long time that I wanted to say ‘I do’! The most memorable part of my wedding was the PARTYING! I loved what the partying represented. I loved the fact that all of our family and friends were together, happy, and celebrating our special day. A party I know we will remember forever!”

What advice do Yedenny and Kevin have for couples planning their own weddings?

Yedenny: “Enjoy the planning process! This is an experience that when you think about it should bring back good memories, not the other way around. Also, do it the way you like – it’s your day. I didn’t follow a book, or all the traditions, it’s all about you and your fiance, so don’t let people talk you out of what you really like, just because they don’t agree with it. You are the one getting married, not them! Also get your fiance involved, everything I did I made sure that my husband also liked, because I felt that it wasn’t only my wedding, it was ours and he should have a say in it too. Also I hired a wedding planner for the day of the wedding only and that was a great thing to do. That way, everyone, family and friends, can enjoy the wedding. No one has to be in charge, running around, and then miss out on the wedding. I hired a wedding planner only for that day because I’m a person that I like to be involved in everything, but for the day of the wedding, I let others do the work…My only task was to be happy!”

Kevin: “My advice to a bride-to-be would be not to cut corners. If you’re planning to have a big wedding, have it! That one day should be everything you expect and nothing less! Even though your fiancé may moan and groan during the planning process, he will want to make you happy and eventually give in to all your requests!”
