8.8.09 Dutchess Manor Wedding Amy & Adrian

amy-adrian-loungingAmy and Adrian met in Ireland while Amy was spending her junior year in college abroad.  She never dreamed she’d fall in love with a red-haired Irishman…but that’s exactly what fate had in store.

Their love story unfolded in the letters they wrote to each other along with the toasts of their Maids of Honor and Best Man.  Amy and Adrian forged a relationship in spite of the odds and six long years separated by the Atlantic Ocean.  Their late night telephone calls, “did more for Irish-American relations than any diplomat ever has,” in the words of Adrian’s brother.  Amy’s Maids of Honor spoke about their “blue light chats” in college and the girls’ declaration that Adrian was definitely a keeper; “You better keep your kung-fu grip on him!”groomsmen-showing-leg

DETAILS:  An Irish and American flag graced the sweetheart table.  A photo slideshow of Amy and Adrian through the years played on a lap top throughout the night, a lovely presentation put together by Amy’s godmother.

Amy had spent years in a capella groups, so she decided to surprise her new husband with a serenade.  She invited Adrian to a chair in the center of the dance floor, then sang a pitch perfect, “Be My Baby.”  I expected her to be good, but Amy was outstanding!  The lovely, unassuming Amy worked the room like a pro, circling and singing to her new husband.  The guests burst into applause at the finish in a standing ovation.amy-posing

Blending Irish music with classic feel-good oldies tunes was just the right musical combination for Amy and Adrian.  We ended the night with “Lean On Me,” all their friends circled arm in arm on the dance floor, singing along.
