mandy + nav 9.25.10

the rockin' couple mandy + nav were married at fire island over the weekend! it was a first for me and chris and can't believe we had never heard about this place! you take a 30 min ferry ride to get there from long island and then bike around the island and move your stuff from place to place with wagons.. no cars allowed! a few unusual things on the island like roaming deer {big ones with antlers!} and lots of cats that would follow you everywhere! mandy and nav hooked us up with a cute condo right next to their reception site flynns... a popular bar on the water! the couple got ready in an adorable section of the island.. surrounded by shops and restaurants! we got some fun shots along the ferry dock and around town... we then biked back to the ceremony site on the beach.. many guests made the picturesque journey on foot {about a mile} and some took golf carts.. so fun! {printed cds served as programs!}after the ceremony a bagpipe parade led the 100 plus guests to the reception party! the amazing details of this wedding are courtesy of the couple and the one and only lauren panepinto who you will remember did their save the date and invite {i shot her and ryan's {mandy's bro} wedding last year- she had the vintage ship invites!} so the theme was definitely rock and roll.. each table was named after a favorite band like u2 and ac/dc and matching backstage passes were given out with lanyards that guests wore, funky pins were on tables and table names were held up with record bowls.. matching concert tickets and vip cards were also displayed! a table with records and cd artwork a cake that looked like a record... i mean it was awesome! nav's irish heritage was also displayed with flags throughout and cupcake flavors like bailey's irish creme! nav also showed off his dancing skills with a michael jackson performance to give the original a run for his money! a fantastic band cafe wah performed lots of fun songs and to finish the night off with a bang- fire dancers at a nearby bar performed on the beach {if you are interested in hiring them let me know!} they were incredible! i had been looking forward to this wedding and seeing some friend's from a past wedding and it did not dissapoint.. super awesome couple and such a laid back fun wedding! congrats m + n!!
