Marissa & Greg – Stone Manor Wedding

Mar 25, 2013

They met at a work drinking fountain. After a few awkward moments of small talk, they both had to get back to work. Greg asked Marissa for her phone number and not realizing he meant her phone number, Marissa gave him her work number. Shucks. Greg didn’t let that stop him. Soon he had her real phone number and her whole heart. These two are so meant to be – they have found in each other a constant companion, a forever travel buddy and true love. I was so honored to be part of their small and perfect celebration this past weekend at Stone Manor in Middletown. It is such a beautiful venue – so quiet you can hear the wind blowing each pine on the pine tree and a perfect place to say I do.

Marissa & Greg – I had an amazing time working with you these past few months. From the skype meeting where we chatted and I watched Greg make dinner, to the engagement session at the Manor where you gave me the lay of the land for your big day to Saturday where I got to meet your amazing family and friends – you lovebirds have been amazing. I already know you are going to have an amazing lifetime together and cannot wait to see what the future holds for the two of you. Congrats!!!

Marissa chose to do her own makeup. I thought it looked super glamorous!

Not easy getting into a corset dress…

Yay for super adorable first looks!

Love all of these.

This room was so pretty!!

Oh wow, I could have sat and listened to Kerensa Gray all night. She is crazy talented and awesome to watch!!

Greg’s birthday is next week, so Marissa surprised him with a birthday cake!!

    Their reception decorations look amazing. And I’m a little obsessed with that bouquet photo at the moment for some reason. You’re so talented 😉

    You two confirmed my suspicions – a first class soire’. The wedding weekend memories & photos are making my flight delayed trip back to Chicago sooo much easier; thanks for the memories.

    Dear Greg & Marissa,

    It is said that a couple should enter into marriage with both eyes open; however, once maried you should close one eye 🙂 If you never forget that marriage is first and foremost a sacrament, and always remember what brought you together, and realize the person you love so very much today will always be that same person (with an occasional off-day every now and then), I know you will enjoy a long, loving, and lasting marriage together. Wishing you all the best now and in the years ahead!!!

    Warm regards,

    Mike A
