Emily & Nick 9.6.08

Emily & Nick are so much in love, they look at each other and it's like there is no one else in the room.

Friends and family all gathered on a perfect day to celebrate their love.

Their outdoor ceremony overlooked the lake and fountain at Southern Dunes. I enjoyed working with Connie Wright and Brian Petersson (8 years ago, I entertained at he and his wife Jacki's wedding!).

Emily and her bridesmaids were stunning, captured by photographer Jay N. Stillwagon (these are my amateur snapshots, BTW, he's the professional LOL).

Inside, Emily's eye for style showed in all the decorations:

For cocktail hour, I created a custom play list of Emily & Nick's favorite artists, including Coldplay, Jason Mraz and Stevie Wonder. I also snuck in songs from Emily's favorite movies "Garden State," "Singin' In the Rain," "Moulin Rouge" and "Love Actually."

Dinner began with a heartwarming blessing from Nick's Grandfather, Ted. I really enjoyed meeting Nick's Grandmother "Nana" as well, who always has a sparkle in her eye.

After being toasted (and "roasted") by Emily's sister Wendy and Best Man Wes, it was time to dance!

With the dance floor open, everyone joined in all night long!

Emily's brother Doug doing the "Robot" while sister Wendy laughs!

Can you guess this sing-a-long? "Just a small town girl..."

Congratulations Emily & Nick! You gave your guests a party they'll never forget.
