The moment Jennifer and Eric met, there was no question in Jennifer’s mind she’d met her match. “I knew it from the moment our eyes met, there was something remarkable that I could never explain and still can’t 7 years later.”
These two planned a romantic, candlelight-filled, cocktail-style vineyard wedding (with fire dancers!!) that featured their four girls. Both Jennifer and Eric have two daughters each from previous marriages, and to their parents’ amusement, each picked wedding day jobs. Explained Jennifer, “Our 15-year-old carried the rings, our 14-year-old played violin for the ceremony, our 13-year-old carried vows, and our 11-year-old threw flowers!”
We know you’re wondering…so, how did Jennifer find her dress? Well, like everything else during the onset of the pandemic, it happened over Zoom! “I saw a picture of Joy and thought it would flatter, so I emailed Lea-Ann Belter and was told Something Blue in Saratoga was the closest retailer at 4 hrs away. So I did a Zoom meeting total pandemic style and was in love!”
Fierce and fabulous, just like our bride!
Get the details on Eric’s proposal in Mexico, along with what Ginuwine’s “Pony” had to do with their wedding day (no, it was not their first dance!), and what they did instead of going on their planned honeymoon below:
How did your sweetie propose?
“He proposed to me last July 24th in Mexico at the pool when we were laughing and having fun…he said he planned it for my birthday dinner on the beach for July 26th but just couldn’t wait.”
What was your first dance song?
“We danced to Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years.””
What was the funniest moment of your day?
“Our funniest moment was when my now husband reenacted a dance he did in Mexico during a couples game. He crawled across the floor to Ginuwine’s “Pony”. ”
What was your something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue?
“My something old was my infinity necklace that I never remove, my dress was my new, my borrowed and blue was an ankle bracelet with a blue gemstone borrowed from my daughter.”
Three words that best describe your partner:
“Loyal, honest, and loving.”
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
“We did a family moon since Antigua got canceled, hit the Adirondacks and did a multitude of activities with the girls since their vacation with my parents got canceled as well. We will go when things settle down.”
Any advice for future brides/grooms?
“Things may not go as planned but it doesn’t mean your day won’t be perfect!”
