These two are born romantics who transformed the Garden Room with classic American songbook selections, jazz and ballroom standards.

DonnaMarie and Ed shared their First Dance to “The Anniversary Waltz” performed by Connie Francis, a graceful waltz around the dancefloor with eyes locked on each other.  It was simply lovely.

THE DETAILS:  The couple’s love for romance carried through in the details of their wedding day.  Their parents wedding photos graced the cake table and their cake topper was a glass cube containing photos on each of four sides: DonnaMarie as a child, Ed as a child, then two beautiful photos of the two of them together.

DonnaMarie and Ed each dedicated songs to each other, springing to the dance floor as they were played.  “That’s All” performed by Sarah Vaughn and “Making Memories of Us” by Keith Urban.

Our night incorporated fox trots, waltzes and swing…with lots of Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and Andrea Bocelli.  I don’t recall ever seeing the Garden Room done up in such classic elegance, so full of nostalgia and love.

Beautifully, tastefully done and a true representation of the love and personalities of DonnaMarie and Ed.

The couple is off for a month long honeymoon in Italy.  Bravo!
