carrie + mike 9.5.09

the very sweet carrie + mike were married on a picture perfect day at the molly pitcher inn. the ceremony was held outside around sunset on the deck overlooking the navesink river. a couple readings including one about love being like a dog- very cute and also a greek crowning ceremony made for a unique ceremony! the bridal party was small {my favorite} just 2 sisters and 2 brothers. The colors were hot pink, black and white, the perfect color combo for a place like the molly pitcher! the reception was beautiful with various height glass vases filled with pink flowers and the bottoms with black marbles, which gave off a very glamorous and classic feel! the table cards were actually bags filled with scratch offs and pennies that were later passed around for guests... i think the top winner was $10! a few other surprises throughout the night were some couples' wedding songs played for the parents and grandparents.. a cute idea for dinner. as well as a song sang by carrie's sister. toasts were given and one in particular really stood out... mike's brother gave a light hearted toast that he found on the internet {on a site kind of like cliffs notes} it was very funny and he even left in the wrong names for the full effect.. everyone was cracking up! dancing began early and went all night, and this included a little greek dancing which was very cool! a cupcake cake cutting {my fave} rounded out the evening along with an amazing desert buffet! such a genuinely sweet and loving couple and such a beautiful wedding to shoot! congrats c + m! lots of luv!
