Jennifer Troietto and I had the pleasure of working with Amy & Joe on their “Night Club” themed wedding at the beautiful Winona Vine Estates. We still can’t believe how easy going and accommodating Mizzy and his staff were. A special thanks to Studio Chris for the photos. The venue was transformed inside and out by the talented Lynn Sousa & team of Classic CreationsWedding Decor. This couple’s wedding truly embodied what family, love and friendship is to us. There was so much love and happiness in every aspect of the day. Amy & Joe’s first priority was making their guests feel welcomed and beyond loved. They made sure to include their children and family in everything they did.
“Hi Tracey, I want to thank u very much for everything u have done for me!!! Sorry it’s that late but I have been crazy busy with the moving and new school and new life…Lol! Hope you guys are great and I hope to see u soon…maybe you can come for a barbeque one weekend…Xo xo xo”
A beautiful Romanian Orthodox ceremony, complete with chandeliers and doves took place on the grounds where the staged area was draped. They even thought to have umbrellas and fans at every chair for the sun and heat. A string trio was playing for the guests after the ceremony while the wedding party and couple went for photos.
At the reception the guests were greeted by the couple and a great photo booth set up by BEN best entertainment network at the entrance with a gorgeous blinged out 5×7 frame to keep the photos as a keepsake.
When they went inside the ballroom an open bar, and a double martini luge along with a deluxe antipasto bar greeted them.
Ummm…Did we mention the brides FAB shoes?
Live bands playing tradionional Romanian folk and modern music entertained everyone, along with a DJ playing club hits, that kept everyone on their feet all night long.
A bridal capture took place until the groom had to pay off the captures, two wedding dress changes, and then Brazilain Samba dancers came in and shook the place up even more.
Guests were then asked to step outside, where sparklers were handed out for the cake cutting, and then a fireworks show amazed everyone. This wedding was every Eastern European girls’ dream come true!
The food was incredible and seemed never ending! Take a look at what was on the menu (these photos are only from the antipasto station):
