Grandview Wedding Amanda and Roberto

9.4.10  Amanda and Roberto officially became husband and wife in Hawaii two years ago, but their wedding celebration under the tent at the Amanda and Roberto KissingGrandview in Poughkeepsie, NY was no less magnificent.  They showed their guests the beauty of the Hudson Valley and added a touch of Hawaiian style.

Amanda and Roberto were introduced to “Ain’t That a Kick in the Head” by Dean Martin, carrying their adorable son, Lucas, in their arms.  He was a charmer, an absolute sweetheart all night…especially when they let him have the first taste of cupcake icing!

THE DETAILS:  The bridesmaids wore elegant black dresses and carried white bouquets, each with a bouquet charm containing a photo of Amanda and Roberto’s Hawaiian wedding.  The groomsmen were handsome in their Marine and Army uniforms.  Tables were decorated with floral centerpieces of pale green bells of Ireland and white roses, along with picturesque photos the couple enjoying Hawaiian beaches and Maui sunsets.  Green and white cupcakes adorned with yellow roses on a tiered display.

Guests were given S’mores favors in mason jars, complete with an adorable poem, “S’more Thanks, S’more love…”  Instead of a traditional guest book, guests signed tags and hung them on a Wish Tree decorated with glittering jewels.

Amanda was so beautiful, with a feather in her hair and an effervescent personality that made her the sweetheart of the night.  It was our first time meeting Amanda and Roberto in person, but the glimpse of their personalities told us they were every bit as sweet and caring as I had imagined.

We played songs by Hawaiian artists to treat the guests to “Island style” during dinner.  N’sync also made an appearance, thanks to a helpful guest who clued us in to the fact that Amanda was obsessed with them as a teenager.

The guests also enjoyed the decadent ice cream sundae buffet.  Yum! Amanda and Roberto in Black and White

It was a true celebration of love and family that united the generations and guests from across the states.  Thanks for having us, guys!
