I was overjoyed to be able to spend the day with Christina and Ryan at their Peppermint Grove Yacht Club Wedding. It was a tricky day with a thunderstorm covering the city in rain and hail but you would never know it from the smiles on their faces and hearing of their proposal story.

While in New York City after a busy day of retail therapy, Ryan convinced a very tired Christina to head out for dinner and to take in the city at night. Once they had finished dinner, Ryan veered Christina to a horse and carriage that he had arranged for them to ride through Central Park. As they snuggled and enjoyed the slower pace in the city that never sleeps, all of a sudden a saxophonist came into earshot playing Van Morrison at Cherry Hill. As they got out of the carriage, Ryan fell to one knee and told Christina how much she meant to him and asked her to spend the rest of her life with him. Her reply were tears falling as she absorbed everything that was happening. He asked her again to which she replied through tears of joy, “Of course.”

I began the day with Christina and her family at Christina and Ryan’s brand new home with a stunning Maggie Sottero gown and Lisa Ho shoes. Much like Ryan and Christina, they were a perfect match.

The house was a buzz as everyone got ready. Christina looked flawless thanks to Kinga Markovic.

With the weather continuing to come towards us and some very gusty winds, we somehow managed to find 5 minutes of sun and light. You know I love my back lighting.

The beautiful blooms were by Christina’s friend Lindy Watt of Lush Floral Designs. I am fast becoming a huge fan of Lindy’s who seems to create the most beautiful designs of perfect blooms.

The Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club was a beautiful location for the reception and was dressed up with flowers and furniture for a relaxed waterside vibe. I always enjoy working there and this was no exception.
