Caitlin and Danielle said I Do at The English Manor. This venue has recently been updated with beautiful glossy marble white floors and ceilings. With floor to ceiling windows along the walls, this ballroom is spacious and bright. And even though it was a rainy day, the rain did not stop us from giving Danielle and Caitlin bright and vivid wedding photography. When the rain calmed down, we went to the front of the manor to take romantic portraits. The garden feel was really important to Caitlin and Danielle so we used the flowers and architecture in front of the venue to capture creative photographs of these two lovebirds.
Tell us your Proposal Story!!
“The original plan was to take our dog, Mia, to the beach in Asbury Park. When the forecast wasn’t looking so good, Danielle said we should still get brunch but leave Mia behind. More than halfway to Asbury, it started pouring rain! We still drove to the beach in hopes the rain would stop; Danielle was very persistent. We parked and sat for a while, as rain poured all over the car. Danielle seemed nervous but patient, and me, not so much. Finally, after 20 minutes or so, the rain let up, so we walked on to the beach. I had a feeling this was going to be the moment because of Danielle’s nervousness, and she grew more and more awkward! Danielle walked closer to the beach entrance, where her two best friends were now standing with Mia! Once Mia realized we were there, she came running over to us with the cutest bandana around her neck, asking, “will you marry Mommy”? Once Mia got to me, I was overwhelmed by emotion and began to cry. Danielle then got down on one knee and said, “Caitlin, I love you. Will you marry me”. The ring was everything I wanted it to be. We then attempted to take some cute photos with Mia, but the rain only allowed just about enough time for the proposal. The next surprise was a room at the Berkeley hotel, where a bottle of champagne awaited us. The rest of the night after dinner at Taka was spent celebrating with our closest family and friends at the Berkeley.”
Caitlin was so excited and eager for Danielle to see her in her wedding dress. Danielle was not allowed to see the wedding dress until their first look… and let me tell you, their first look was absolutely incredible! Seeing her bride for the first time, Danielle gushed over Caitlin’s beauty. Her form-fitted Castle Couture dress looked phenomenal on her, Danielle is one lucky lady!! Danielle wore a gray tuxedo from Boss Tuxedo. This was a very sleek look and her brown suede dress shoes really made a statement. She looked amazing!
What is something that the two of you are most excited about for your wedding day?
“We’re both super excited about spending the day with the people who support us the most. We want to celebrate our day with those who will always be there. Danielle is also very much anticipating the “first look,” this is the first time she’ll be seeing the wedding dress!”
Danielle and Caitlin’s loved ones celebrated alongside one another as their two favorite individuals became one. Their ceremony was wonderful; they shared their first kiss and walked hand-in-hand as wife and wife. Happy newly-weds, we took some just married portraits, and then it was time for music and good food! Chris Marino of Limelight Entertainment had an awesome playlist set for fine dining, mingling, and enjoying one another.
What is something that you two like to do together?
“We enjoy spending time with our dog Mia. We also enjoy hanging out with friends and family frequently, which is very important to both of us. We love taking tropical vacations and spending time relaxing since our work schedules are hectic. When time and weather permits, we like to enjoy the outdoors.”
Caitlin and Danielle, so many congratulations to you. It was a truly beautiful wedding! Thank you so much for choosing Limelight Entertainment to capture your wedding day!
