Villa Borghese Wedding Krystal and Dylan

9.25.09  High school sweethearts Krystal and Dylan had their evening ceremony and wedding reception at the Villa Borghese in Wappingers Falls.  Their love for alternative rock showed in song choices by Oasis, Third Eye Blind and Dashboard Confessional.

Dylan was handsome is his gray suit and Krystal’s beautiful dress with its soft gray sash matched it in perfect elegance.  The bridesmaids’ burgundy dresses reminded me that fall wedding season is well underway.  My favorite!  (Of course, Jeff and I were married on October 27th.)

Krystal and Dylan read the vows they had written for each other just before their First Dance, an intimate moment shared with their guests.  They spoke in hushed tones, eyes glistening as they looked at each other.  Their First Dance?  “Everything” by Alanis Morisette.

Later on, Krystal danced with her father to “Blue Does” by Blue October.  Love this song!  Then she surprised him with a mid-way segue into “Love Shack,” a song they’d danced to when she was a child, and the whole family joined in.

COOL TWIST ON ANNIVERSARY DANCE:  We did an Anniversary Dance, inviting all the married couples up to the dance floor to eliminate them by how many years they had been married.  In a cool twist I’d never seen before, Dylan handed roses to the woman in each couple as they left the dance floor.

Krystal added a last minute dedication to her mother of “The Best Day” by Taylor Swift.  “And Daddy’s smart and you’re the prettiest lady in the whole wide world…” as Krystal and her mother danced together.

Guests were treated to wedding cake, cherries jubilee and a candy buffet of chocolate and peanut M&Ms, sour fish, Starbursts and delicious chocolates to take home as favors.  It was a finale every bit as sweet as Krystal and Dylan.
