Amy and Jeremy

Despite an overcast and brisk day, Amy and Jeremy's May 3, 2008 wedding was nothing but sparkles and sunshine.

With a spunky pallette of pink, orange and black, accented by butterflies here and there, it was the unique touches that made their day so memorable and adorable to look at in every possible way.

Amy and Jeremy were married at 6:00 pm on the serene grounds of the Farmington Club with a personalized and touching civil ceremony, following by the breaking of the glass in the Jewish tradition. Tara of Heavenly Elegance accompanied the ceremony and her gorgeous harp performance was just chilling.

Following the ceremony, the guests were greeted to an incredibly fun willow arrangement adorned by butterfly escort cards Amy's mom Sharon made herself. They were a hit!

Cocktail hour took place under the covered patio. The Wildwood Group provided a jazz ensemble that was the just the right touch to get the crowd mingling and in the mood to party.

The ballroom was decorated to the nines, with each table adorned with ribbons (a great way to dress up tables at a fraction of the price of a custom linen!). Jane of Just For You in Middlefield, did a stupendous job on all of the flowers. Here is a close up of the centerpiece:

And a shot of the tables:

There was a fun lolli centerpiece for all the kiddies -Yum-o! The wonderful staff at Farmington Club were kind enough to provide white drawing paper on top of the table so that the young lords and ladies could doodle to their little heart's desires.

Ever so creative, a banner for the sweetheart table really made a statement and showed the bride's personality through and through!

Each couple was treated to a favor that included two bottles of champagne. The sticker on the bag says "L'Chaim," which is the most common Jewish drink toast "To life."

Creative Cakes by Donna designed a fabulous fondant cake decorated with pink butterflies, ribbons and pearls.

Of all the weddings I have worked, Amy and Jeremy's first dance was the most moving I have ever witnessed. They picked "Love Song" by 311 and while I am not a great photographer by any means, this photo of them (albeit blury, taken by yours truly) twirling on the dance floor and the expression on Amy's mother face in the background sends a pang right through my heart.

I love it when couples pick songs that are what I call out of the wedding box and as I am married to a die hard 311 fan, I can't get over how I had never thought of this song for a wedding. Kudos, guys!

Amy's tulle dress couldn't have been more perfect match for her event or her incredibly sweet and cheery disposition.

The food was so good, I decided we needed a photo of it :).

They used The Pros for DJ, photographer and videography. DJ Kevin did a great job keeping the dance floor packed all night long and Jake Koteen got some great pictures.

Amy and Jeremy, we wish you all the happiness in the world! L'Chaim.
