courtney + joe 11.1.08

courtney + joe were married on a beautiful saturday afternoon! their reception was held at sterling gardens in matawan. it was an orthodox ceremony and the church and service was beautiful! we were able to get some fun pics outside of the church in the last light of the day! the girls wore wine colored dresses each in a unique style and carried simple bouquets of calla lilies. the reception started off with a bang! courtney and her father danced to a great old swing song, which was so unique and fun! the tables' centerpieces were oversized wine bottles custom labeled with all the menu info etc.. very cute! c + j decided in lieu of favors to give to charity, but also offered a bit of luck with scratch offs for each guest! my favorite element of the reception was the guest book.. in place of a boring book they had their favorite green eggs and ham for everyone to sign.. one of my new fave ideas! guests danced all night, including the couple! a beautiful wedding and such an energetic and loving couple! congrats you 2 and thanks so much for sharing your big day with me!
