Jayne and Mike (also known to many as Fitz) met while in high school after being set up by mutual friends. Although they went to different schools, she went with him as his date to his senior prom and the two dated for a time. They went their separate ways (in Florida and Pennsylvania) during their college years, but began dating again once they moved back to their hometowns… and fell in love.
Jayne’s pup Charlie was included in Mike’s very thoughtful proposal! The two always love taking him for a walk, so on one Friday evening, they walked him down to Jayne’s parents’ front porch. There, Mike popped the question in a spot that holds a special place in Jayne’s heart. Of course, Jayne said ‘yes’! Afterwards, they went to dinner as they had planned before their walk. However, now family and friends all met them there to celebrate!
On the morning of their highly anticipated day, Jayne got ready at her parents’ home in Warrington, Pennsylvania. Amanda D’Andrea Hair and All Dolled Up Makeup finished up with their professional services, then the bridal party took some time aside to celebrate and toast the bride! Afterwards, Jayne’s bridal party put on their beautiful matching black gowns. We always love a black and white wedding event!
Jayne’s mother then helped her into her wedding dress. Jayne wore an amazing Tara Keely by Lazaro trumpet gown with a sparkling embroidered overlay, a deep-V illusion neckline, thin shoulder straps and a stunning open back design. She accessorized with a delicate, sparkling sash and a long, flowing cathedral veil for the ceremony. And those soft blue-green shoes from Badgley Mischka were the perfect choice to compliment, while also providing that important ‘something blue’!
The bridal party carried lovely flowers from Fabufloras in the always-romantic color combination of white and that rich, peachy-blush. Jayne’s gorgeous bouquet had extra special meaning as it held her mother’s rosary on the handle. It was a wonderful personal touch. And we loved seeing her father and bridal party get their first look at the bride coming down the stairs!
Meanwhile, Mike and his groomsmen dressed into their classic black tuxedos at the Courtyard by Marriott in Willow Grove, Pennsylvania. But they had plenty of time to relax and have breakfast before getting ready for the day’s events! Mike’s brother and father helped him with his final touches before it was time to travel to the ceremony location.
Jayne and Mike decided to forgo a first look and instead, see each other for the first time at the altar. So it was then time to head to the church! Their ceremony was held just up the road at St. Robert Bellarmine Roman Catholic Church in Warrington. Father Anthony Raymundo performed the celebration of matrimony, led the two in reciting their traditional vows and exchanging rings, then pronounced them as ‘husband and wife’.
Then, we traveled to the couple’s fantastic reception venue! Jayne and Mike’s reception was held at The Manor House at Commonwealth in Horsham, Pennsylvania. The historic farmhouse venue was adorned in white and blush, with towering floral table centerpieces and romantic votive candles. And the 18th century fieldstone wall behind the couple’s sweetheart table gives this ballroom such a cozy, warm and lovingly-weathered vibe.
Before the events were set to begin, we were thrilled to film alongside Daniel Fosse and his second shooter, Anna Alexander, from Morby Photography, as they captured day’s events in photos. The team from Morby Photography is always fantastic, this wedding being no exception. And Jayne, Mike and their bridal party totally enjoyed themselves, too! Check out some photos below and on their blog!
The newlyweds were introduced to the cheers of their family and friends, and danced their beautiful first dance of the evening, their first dance as Mr. and Mrs.! Jayne’s father then gave a wonderful welcome speech and toast to the couple of honor. We loved when he told them to “take it all in and enjoy” that wonderful day.
Following his heartfelt speech, Jayne danced with her father and Mike with his aunt. Later, Mike’s best man, his brother, and Jayne’s sister and matron of honor toasted the couple with beautiful, thoughtful speeches filled with fun stories and happy memories.
After dinner, the dance floor was opened to everyone and it was time to party! New Power Soul brought such energy and kept all of Jayne and Mike’s guests out on the floor and having a ball dancing the night away! You can clearly see just how much fun everyone had that evening!
Working with this sweet couple was such a dream for us, from our very first phone call to the end of their evening’s events and beyond. Their wedding day was such a beautiful affair and an overwhelming success. Congratulations to Jayne and Mike! We wish them a lifetime of wedded bliss!
