Jen and Tom shared laughter and smiles during the ceremony, as Father Rich spoke about Joseph Campbell and the “heroic journey” of marriage they were about to embark on.
The bridesmaids wore elegant floor length black gowns and carried bouquets of champagne roses. The tables were decorated with champagne and white roses and hydrangeas, and guests received chocolate favors. The cake was layered in gold champagne with a flower on the front.
The toasts highlighted the story of Jen and Tom’s meeting on the Jersey Shore and how Tom was so anxious to see her that a
speeding ticket was involved! Jen’s friends were concerned about a “situation” arising with this Jersey Shore guy, but their fears were quickly set to rest after meeting Tom.
The dance floor rocked non-stop! Tom and Jen set the tone by dancing in to the Beastie Boys’ “Sure Shot,” and their opening song, “Sex Machine” by James Brown. One of the servers told me that she thought the ceiling was going to cave in when she was on the first floor beneath and we were playing, “Party Rock Anthem.”
The newlyweds wanted a dance party, and they certainly made it happen! Thanks so much for letting us in on the fun.
