A Charming Real Wedding - Bianca & Joseph

I recently put out the word for real wedding submissions - it wasn't until I spoke to the lovely Bianca Hendricks of RSVP by B Wedding & Event Planning in Poughkeepsie, NY, that I realised how far reaching my humble blog has become. She sent me her own beautiful wedding from last Summer...and I must say, I swooned when I saw all of the beautiful details and little touches she added to her big day. Owl's Eye Studios captured this charming wedding. [gallery type="rectangular" link="none" ids="490,486,487,485"] [gallery type="rectangular" link="file" ids="483,481,480,482"] Bianca added in the most beautiful little details. Her stunning dress was by Alfred Angelo. [gallery type="rectangular" link="file" ids="478,479,492,491"] Bianca and Joseph were introduced by a mutual friend on Labor Day weekend in 2010. When it came to popping the question? "We’d been talking about it for quite some time, and I would joke about it, say something like “Why don’t you do it already!". Little did I know, he had been planning to do so...every morning before he leaves for work, he always wakes me by giving me a kiss goodbye. One morning, he was doing just that, apparently the way I was laying I had an open hand and he placed the box in my hand. I woke up completely confused! He was down on one knee, and said "You're my best friend, will you marry me?”. It totally caught me off guard! It was great!" [gallery type="rectangular" link="file" ids="508,507,509,502"] These two are so in love! [gallery type="rectangular" ids="501,497,499,496"] What made you choose your venue? "We wanted something different. We didn’t want to have a wedding where we had prom or been to for another friend’s wedding. Locust Grove in upstate New York is a beautiful historic estate property; buildings and gardens overlooking the Hudson River that combine the charm of the 19th century with the comfort of the 21st, all located in our backyard. " [gallery type="rectangular" link="file" ids="503,504,505"] [gallery type="rectangular" link="file" ids="511,514,515,513"] Even a wedding planner can't always guarantee that things will go according to plan for their own wedding! "It was a the hottest day of the year. Our cake was made of buttercream frosting, so I know they had to make some touch ups to it prior to the wedding beginning because it was starting to lean or melt!" [gallery type="rectangular" link="file" ids="517,488,489"] What was the most memorable part of the day for you? "How it all came together. You have a dream and vision of how you want your wedding to be. Of course some things didn’t exactly go as planned, but as a whole the color, the flowers, the lighting, the romance, the love in the air, the overall design and feel of the wedding was stunning!"

Beautiful wedding. Love the bouquet and the special touches they added for photos. Photos tell the story long after the event so adding the tags for Something Old, Borrowed, a Blue and Sixpence was awesome to accent the photo story.
