You may remember Michelle and Peter from the first part of our She Said Yesblog series. Peter proposed to Michelle on May 20th, 2016 while on vacation in the Dominican Republic. Michelle was so shocked and could not reply, so he had to ask her twice! This engagement was truly special considering Peter traveled all the way to Boston to pick up the perfect unique and vintage engagement ring.
On May 13th, 2017, our beautiful couple tied the knot!
Michelle and Peter chose NJ Wedding Pros to provide day of wedding coordination, photography, a limo, flowers, centerpieces & decor, and a pianist.
We were so honored to be able to be a part of their special day!
As day of wedding coordinators, we took care of everything from helping to pick the perfect vendors and making full day itineraries, decorating and setting up the decor for the church and reception, to ensuring every last detail was met until the end of their special night. We had a wonderful time with this beautiful couple!
Michelle and Peter wed at Saint Stanislaus Kostka Church in Sayreville, NJ. We provided flowers for the entire bridal party. The blush pink roses, crystals, cream hydrangea, bronze sprayed berries and her grandmother’s medallion completed her gorgeous gown and vintage themed wedding.
One of our very talented photographers, Andrei, captured every moment of the day. He caught their genuine love from every creative angle. Our elegant limo also eased the transportation for Michelle and Peter from the church straight to their reception at the Armory in Perth Amboy, NJ.
The newlyweds and their guests enjoyed live music by our very talented pianist, Arnie. The music set the tone for her sophisticated and intimate reception.
Michelle wanted elegant and timeless pieces for her centerpieces and decor. She went above and beyond the traditional by using an antique mirror and a rustic card box on a classic piano to welcome guests to the wedding. She took that old saying “something borrowed” to a new level. From the silver cups, platters and books that were borrowed from family to the silver pitchers purchased at antique shops, every last detail shined through. The hydrangea, baby’s breath, pearls, lace and candles were the perfect finishing touches for the theme. Michelle wanted her reception to look sophisticated and vintage, so we managed every last detail to create this look, while ensuring her vision came to life.
“I can’t say enough how much I enjoyed working with Karissa and her team. Karissa is incredibly organized, sweet, and thorough. We hired her for wedding planning and a full day of coordination on the day of our wedding. Through her we hired a photographer, florist, limo, and pianist. The entire day was beautiful thanks to the help of Karissa and Zoey. They truly went above and beyond. They had every detail planned and decorated my venue better than I could have ever imagined. Karissa’s calm demeanor, checklist/time lines, and organization helped keep me calm throughout the entire planning process and I really appreciated that. Thank you thank you thank you times a million, Karissa!” ~ Michelle
