Rebecca planned it so that we could get all the family formals done before the ceremony which led to more celebrating time at their reception … so we began with lots of formals,
and before we knew it, the ceremony was upon us. Rebecca was walked down the aisle by her adorable daughter
The ceremony was beautiful…pure and simple.
Her daughter read an exerpt from Winnie the Pooh which touched all of us and after the ring exchange, Rebecca and Dennis were pronounced husband and wife! Congratulations!
We were lucky for a little bit with the weather…the rain held off just long enough for most of the receiving line … but then suddenly the skies opened up and it POURED!
I got a few quick shots of her daughter, some guests, the flowers, and them outside the church before we all ran inside.
With umbrellas in hand, we all left the church and headed to Woodcliff for the cocktail hour and reception ~ they really do an amazing job there!
During the cocktail hour, guests were writing wishes and notes to the bride and groom … such a cute idea; more elaborate than the guest book and some of the sweetest comments I’ve had the pleasure to see.
After the formals, we went back in for some more mingling and soon the introductions were made and Rebecca and Dennis went into their first dance together as husband and wife.
I loved the song they danced to; “The Luckiest” by Ben Folds. What an amazing song; the perfect first dance melody and lyrics.
Toasts were made, dinner was served, and before long the cake was cut!
It’s been a while since I’ve seen the figures on top…so sweet!
Another storm rumbled through shortly after only this time, it was followed by a beautiful rainbow just outside the reception room! I grabbed a few pictures before the sun set.
Dinner was amazing, all the songs they choose were so much fun and everyone was having an amazing time. Rebecca danced with her daughter after dinner and then everyone joined in and the celebration lasted into the night!
Thank you Rebecca and Dennis! I was honored to be a part of your celebration and I’m so incredibly happy for you both!!
