Kelly & Stephen
July 16, 2010
Westmount Country Club • Woodland Park, NJ
With plans to go to a Halloween-themed wedding the next day, Kelly headed over to Steve’s house to finalize their costumes. The couple was excited to dress as David and Victoria Beckham, and Kelly had a great idea to complete her costume with a huge, fake ring. But when she got to Steve’s house that day, she soon found out that he had something for her to wear with her costume. The next thing she knew, Steve was on one knee with a beautiful ring in hand. “I was so surprised I was shaking. It was absolutely perfect,” Kelly recalled.
Upon entering their reception at the Westmount Country Club, they felt as though they had been whisked off to South Beach. The room was appropriately decorated in turquoise and white. Atlas Florist created beautiful centerpieces, a tall illuminated cylinder with turquoise stones, and calla lilies. Couches and blue lit cabanas filled the room, as candles flickered in the intimate lighting. The escort cards were made from Miami postcards, and all the tables were named after hotels and streets in South Beach.
Palermo’s Bakery created the beautiful four square off-set tiered cake. Their wonderful creation included crystal rhinestones on two tiers and a turquoise ribbon on the others. Layers included chocolate with chocolate fudge filling and vanilla with a raspberry filling, all topped with light buttercream icing. “Palermo’s Bakery was great to work with. They were fast, full of ideas, and they executed it perfectly. Plus, the cake was delicious,” Kelly recalled.
Milton Gil Photographers recorded Kelly and Steve’s wedding day with professional photography and videography. The couple agreed that their pictures are “unbelievable,” and everyone they worked with at the studio was incredibly accommodating and easy to work with. Following their wedding, Kelly and Steve honeymooned for two weeks in Hawaii. They continue to look back on their wedding day with fond memories as they enjoy their new life together.
