Dutchess Manor Wedding: Curt and Robert

10.14.11  Curt and Robert’s autumn wedding at the Dutchess Manor in Beacon, NY, was a wonderful celebration of family and fun.

Their intimate ceremony was held inside the ballroom by the Reverend Jim Rooney, who happens to have a lovely Scottish accent

and a charming personality to boot.  He asked the guests to call out things they want for the couple in their marriage: “Happiness!”  “Peace!”  “Money,” the Reverend joked.

The Details

The tables were laid with gorgeous metallic maroon linens and autumn centerpieces of daisies, lilies and sunflowers.  Guests were given favors of spice scented candles and orange and black M&Ms.  The chocolate wedding cake was decorated with fondant pumpkins, leaves and acorns.

We loved the adorable kids Robert and Curt had invited to the wedding.  From the smallest toddlers to the dancing teens, they were a delight.  They danced with glow necklaces and played with foam swords the newlyweds provided for them.

One of my favorite moments was watching Robert and his Maid of Honor “Vogue” together on the dance floor.

There was love in the room, a few happy tears, and a great sense of fun.  Thanks so much for having us, guys!
