The Most Amazing Wedding Ever!

We got married on Saturday and it was the most amazing wedding ever!

Seriously, it was flat out awesome. And I know I’m supposed to say that, but never have I been part of such a flawless event that people enjoyed so much.

When we started the planning process we knew we wanted it to be a fun event, and that’s exactly what it was. The rehearsal dinner was on Friday night and it was held at a bowling alley. Seriously. Granted, we had an exclusive room and private lanes, and it was a New York City kind of swanky place. It was the perfect way to let people relax and kick off a weekend of fun.

The wedding was held at the Metropolitan Pavilion on Saturday and we started with two completely empty gallery rooms, but by the time the wedding rolled around they were completely transformed. I’ll share the professional shots when I receive them because cell phone shots just won’t do the space justice.

I won’t hit all the details because we don’t have all the photos and video just yet, but I will say that guests were completely surprised by the pop up gospel group that sang at the end of the ceremony, and they were flat out stunned when, out of no where, a waiter fell on the dance floor during my speech which ended up being a stomp group. It was jaw dropping awesome and I can’t wait to share the video with you!

For now, I’ll share some random photos that were snapped throughout the day, but will also share the professional shots down the road. Those will show the decor and some of the finer details, as well as our shoot in the Meatpacking District.

My bride looked stunning and I can’t tell you how happy it made me to see her having such an amazing day. Enjoy the shots.  photo(2)The shoes. Ferragamo. (Full outfit details coming in a future post.)

The bow tie. Tom Ford. Here’s some fashion trivia for you. Tom Ford does not allow you to tie your own bow tie because he wants it to have the perfect tie. Fine by me. photo(6)

Behind the scenes of our shoot in Meatpacking. Isn’t that freaking hot? Can’t wait to see the professional shot! photo 1

It’s perfectly normal to take photos by random doors, right? photo 5

And now for a couple teaser shots from the photographer.

I absolutely love this photo and it will definitely be framed.Screen Shot 2013-10-17 at 7.01.27 AMMakes me smile.

incredibooths0009One thing we wanted to have at the wedding was a photo booth. So we did. And that’s where this series of photos was taken. Yes, we enjoyed ourselves. A lot! The beauty behind the photo booth is we received all of the images at the end of the night.

There’s so much more to share from the night, but I hope you enjoyed this quick glimpse at some of the fun we had. It’s safe to say that I don’t think either of us could have dreamed of a more amazing wedding.
