Dagmara and Guy can best be described best friends who share a deep love. The two had been together for almost nine years already before they tied the knot on this beautiful fall evening. Their path to love also included a month and a half traveling together around Fiji and Australia where they shared many exciting adventures. Through the fun experiences and the minor obstacles faced on this expedition, as long as they were together, they discovered they could survive anything and come out still smiling… and more in love!
After getting ready for this wonderful occasion in the afternoon hours, the two shared a very special first look outside at their venue, one that even included a high-five! While we captured the memories on video, Danette Pascarella captured the moments on camera. Be sure to check out her photo of Dagmara and Guy’s first look on her Facebook page!
Dagmara’s wedding gown was so spectacular and very unique! With a stunning mermaid silhouette, it was adorned with bright white embroidered appliqués, a beautiful contrast to the off-white gown. Guy wore a classic black tux, a perfect complement to the bride and the wedding colors.
Dagmara and Guy’s ceremony took place outside on the grounds of the Ryland Inn in Whitehouse Station, NJ. We loved the glorious candlelight that illuminated the aisle and added a true feeling of magic in the air. After the vows were spoken, they had their first kiss as husband and wife, and then their first married high-five of course as well!
The Ryland Inn was decorated so tastefully for this beautiful wedding by Dahlia Flowers. The bride’s and bridesmaids’ bouquets and the table centerpieces were exquisite. Dagmara and Guy also made sure to incorporate many personal touches to the reception. One example was found in their dining tables which were numbered according to each year they were together with photos of the couple.
Their reception continued indoors in the Grand Ballroom at the Ryland Inn, a venue that features an impressive floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, a stunning 30-foot coffered ceiling and gourmet farm-fresh cuisine. DJ Jon Blak from Scratch Weddings provided the evening’s entertainment and announced the first dances, dances filled with such love and admiration.
Congratulations to Dagmara and Guy, a couple already well on their way to a lifetime of love and happiness!
