Emily & Michael; September 29; Red Bank
Emily and Michael were wed on Saturday at the perfect spot for a wedding- her family's home in Red Bank, NJ.
The beautiful house was the backdrop for what was an amazing wedding day. The couple took photos beforehand with Cynthia Delconte in front of the house, by the pool and on their dock on the river behind the house.
The ceremony took place on the front lawn, with chairs and a chuppah set up in a few hundred yards from the front steps of the home. Emily was led down the aisle by both her mother and father as Michael eagerly awaited under the chuppah. Beautiful singing by the cantor, words from both the rabbi and a priest and the breaking of the glass were some of the highlights.
The guests moved to expansive downstairs of the home for cocktail hour before spending the night under a tent in the backyard, entertained by the Scott Yanney Band from NYC.
Reception highlights included a group photo of ALL the guests on the dance floor, Emily's dad cracking open a 70 year old bottle of scotch from the movie 'Casablanca', Emily tossing her bouquet from the grand staircase in the foyer and the happy couple driving off into the night....
