hmmm…..October, a beautiful month for a fall wedding. However, mother nature seemed to be a little confused when an unexpected snowstorm arrived. But nothing could stop Colleen and Michael’s wedding from being nothing but perfect. Despite the weather, the celebration continued with a beautiful mass at Our Lady of Calvary Church in Philadelphia. The only glitch in the day was the plans to take photos outdoors at a park. Frankford Torresdale Country Club so graciously allowed the entire bridal party to come to the country club where they had a room waiting for us with a nice roaring fire in the fireplace, which made for wonderful photos.
After photos it was over the bridge to New Jersey to Colleen’s Caterers at Savoy where a 2 hour cocktail hour with lobster tails, huge shrimp, sushi, and just about anything you could want, waited for the 250-ish guests. The weather stopped no one and guests enjoyed a 5 hour dinner and reception with breakfast served at the end of the night.
Colleen and Michael met about 3 years ago when they were both at the same bar. They noticed one another in a large group that had decided to meet there before heading to a Phillies game. After the Phillies game, they all went to another bar……that was considered their “first” date. They will enjoy honeymooning in Jamaica.
The day came together nicely thanks to Colleens Savoy Caterers, Fairytale Events (video, lighting and photo booth), Galaxy Limousine and Best of Times Disc Jockeys.
