For every blog we write, we really like our readers to feel and possibly even live those special moments that we get to share in with our couples. When meeting with this couple it was so easy to speak with them and were able to just get ideas flowing within minutes from sitting together. When you meet Fran she is quiet, soft spoken, and gentle. Sam is the tall and very built, which can lead you to believe he is rough and tough (and he probably is) but when speaking to his fiancé he was the most loving and caring person. You can see through his eyes just how much he loves her and of course he loves him. They had been together 9 years so this day was long in the making!
Their wedding day was filled with so much emotion. Her dad and grandma (90 years old) flew in from Puerto Rico. Sam’s parents recently moved back to NJ so he was overjoyed to see his parents again and was actually a pretty touching reunion. Dad and son got emotional which really touched our hearts… at that moment we knew where Sam got the gentle heart of his! Their families were so loving and ecstatic that this day had finally come.
Their ceremony was outside and the weather was perfect. We decided to do something different and instead of an arch or arrangements we used the trees as a backdrop to hang crystals and ribbons which flowed in the wind. The reception was classic and elegant with an all white palette and just a few pops of purple throughout the room.
Fran & Sam: We truly enjoyed the planning of your wedding and watching it all come together. You guys are two amazing people that come from wonderful families and feel so privileged to have met all of you. Wishing you a lifetime of health, happiness and love! Xoxox
