We were originally going to have a destination wedding in Aruba. We went there on vacation and fell in love with it. Long story short, it was too much of a finacial burden for our loved ones and we really wanted them to be there to witness our vows. Now the wedding is at home! It's a day wedding at the Chateau Briand in Carle Place, NY. They just underwent a 2Million$ renovation to their patio and I fell in love with the tropical/Miami vibe.

Our reception was in the Normandy Room and our ceremony was on the patio.
"The Normandy reception room takes guests back to the time of the ocean-going cruise ships. This spectacular room features state-of-the-art ambient lighting that can be controlled by our in-house lighting technician, as well as a unique dance floor. When your guests enter the room they see a beautiful Mahogany inlaid dance floor encircled by a brass railing. To their amazement you will rise from below to the accompaniment of your wedding song through a layer of fog. As you rise up among your guests, the brass railing silently retracts into the floor, leaving ample room for dancing with your guests. Exquisite murals and a dazzling etched glass frieze surround you as you celebrate the start of your new life together."

COASTAL ELEGANCE w/COMFORT
I am so blessed to have a friend in the bridal business who is made all the stationary, my dress and the bridesmaids dresses the feel that my crazy heart desires! I am so lucky! Will post pics as soon as they are available!
Blue: Soothing, compassionate and cool, blue is the color of tranquility and royalty. Blue belles are deliberate, introspective, conservative and patient, tending to be sensitive and wise. Serene and cool, blue denotes cautious partners who are faithful but require a calm and harmonious existence. From watery aqua to a deep shade of midnight, blue can be soft and sweet or strong and bold.
You're the meaning in my life, you're the INSPIRATION!
The Blues in this picture make me swoon! Fi and I vacationed in Aruba and loved it! The way the colors go from light to dark make me think about the MOH's dresses. They are an ombre pattern!
