Pascarella Wedding – September 25, 2010

Mr. and Mrs. Pascarella were married at River Stone Manor on September 25, 2010. All of my weddings are special to me but this one was a bit more personal because Oriana and I went to the same high school and I’ve known her for 15+ years. I had a blast working with her on the planning of this event, and getting a chance to meet Tom and their two beautiful boys. They had a night time ceremony, literally getting married with stars overhead, which had an interesting effect that made the ceremony very intimate and peaceful. Oriana chose a chocolate brown as her main color and used flowers to bring color and accents to the space. Instead of place cards they made large posters directing guests to their assigned tables, and instead of a traditional favor they chose to have a big candy bar where guests could fill their bags with treats to take home.

I worked with some great vendors on this event, including my first time working with Brian McGarry who provided me with these beautiful photos. The rest of my vendor team consisted of Amber Mathias at River Stone Manor, the band Body and Soul, flowers by Kris Ann Elario from Fleurtacious Designs, Clifton Park Rental Company, Experience and Creative Designs, and a cake from Villa Italia.

This was a beautiful wedding and I was honored to be a part of it. Congrats again you two!

    Thank you for making our special day come together seamlessly Shannon! You did a fantastic job (as I knew you would) and we couldn't have been happier. It helps that we've known each other for so many years…but I wanted everyone who hasn't known you since grade school to know how fabulous you are at what you do! THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts 🙂
