Gina and Christopher met when they were children and even dated for two weeks as young teenagers, but it wasn’t until the two reconnected 11 years later that they began to date. While on vacation in Florence, Italy, Christopher decided it would be the perfect opportunity to surprise Gina. As they were standing on their hotel balcony drinking wine, Christopher proposed with a solitaire engagement ring.
With approximately two years until March 25, 2011, Gina and Christopher had plenty of time to plan their wedding and enjoy their engagement. Once all of the details were finalized, the big day finally arrived. Chosen for its reputation and delectable food, the ceremony and reception was held at Fox Hollow. The couple also chose Fox Hollow as they were able to have everything at one location, which made it convenient for their guests.
Gina walked down the aisle wearing an A-line Maggie Sottero gown embellished with Swarovski crystals. She held a bouquet of white flowers mixed with brightly colored blooms. The groom looked sharp in a classic black Calvin Klein tuxedo with a black and white tie and converse sneakers. “He looked timeless,” commented Gina. The groomsmen also sported Calvin Klein tuxedos with gunmetal vests, which coordinated nicely with the bridesmaids, who wore black Bill Levkoff dresses. During the ceremony the couple exchanged vows and participated in a unity wine ceremony.
Once announced as the new Mr. and Mrs., the newlyweds and their guests enjoyed an elaborate cocktail hour including several hot hors d’oeuvres, hot buffet stations, displays of cheese, fruit, and seasonal garden vegetables. For dinner, guests had a choice of Chateaubriand, shrimp scampi, chicken, grilled salmon, duck al’orange, land and sea duet, or a vegetarian dish. Waffles and ice cream were served for dessert along with their red velvet wedding cake. “The staff at Fox Hollow were helpful and on point throughout the night,” noted Christopher.
Bryan McNulty from Lost Artist Studios captured the day’s events flawlessly in photography. Gina mentioned that she loved Bryan’s photojournalistic style and thought their wedding story was told perfectly through their photographer’s candid shots. Gina and Christopher were also pleased with how their video turned out thanks to their videographer from The Pros Entertainment Services.
From the first consultation through the planning process, Joe ZiColello of Dash of Class Entertainment was helpful and made Gina and Christopher comfortable. He gave them ideas and informed the couple on all of their options. For their first dance, the newlyweds held the spotlight to “God Only Knows” by The Beach Boys. They also participated in the traditional parent dances to “The Times of Your Life” by Paul Anka and “If Not For You” by George Harrison. “Our reception was awesome. Since Christopher and I grew up together and were from the same neighborhood, we invited a lot of friends and family who all knew each other. It seemed like everyone was happy to be there as we were,” commented Gina.
At the end of the night, guests took home black and white cookies that went along with their color scheme. Following their big day, Gina and Christopher escaped to Riu Vallarta in Riviera Nayarit, Mexico that they won through Contemporary Bride Magazine’s Honeymoon Sweepstakes.

Claire and Michael met through mutual friends during their sophomore year of college. “I immediately recognized that Michael had a very friendly and easygoing way about him,” Claire recalled. The two were dating other people at the time and although they lost touch, they were reconnected again the very last week of college in May of 1999. Claire and Michael began dating and a decade later, Michael presented Claire with a solitaire engagement ring from Jay Roberts Jewelers.
Finally August 27,, 2011 arrived and brought with it a big surprise. Although Hurricane Irene was on her way, Claire remained calm and was excited to begin prepping for her wedding. Claire was on the phone with the coordinator at 3 West Club finalizing last minute seating changes as Jeanine of Jeanine Mangan Makeup Designs flawlessly applied her makeup and Handri Gunawan styled her hair into a traditional chignon. Claire and her bridesmaids then met up with Michael and his groomsmen for pre-ceremony photos, shot by Chae Kihn of Harold Hechler Photographers. Kihn shot a mix of classic portraits, candid and posed shots, and black and white photos that the couple absolutely loved.
The ceremony was held at Cathedral of Saint Patrick in New York City where Claire’s parents had been married. Claire walked down the aisle in an off-white Alencon lace gown designed by Tomasina and a cathedral-length veil. Gold peep-toe Jimmy Choo heels and Swarovski crystal drop earrings completed the bride’s look. She carried a bouquet of white and cream roses. Claire’s bridesmaids wore navy blue silk chiffon gowns and carried bouquets of lavender sterling roses. Michael sported a traditional black tuxedo, as did his best man and groomsmen.
The bridesmaids’ carried lavender sterling roses to complement their navy blue chiffon dresses, which coordinated nicely with the groomsmen attire.
The reception was held at 3 West Club, which is a private club built in 1921 on the site of Andrew Carnegie’s former home. Claire and Michael were pleased with the overall service from the staff. The bride commented, “They were so efficient and exacting that I didn’t need to focus on them at all, which is the way it should be!” During cocktail hour, guests enjoyed a variety of hors d’oeuvres in addition to passed champagne in flutes. Dinner began with a sea scallop risotto with porcini mushrooms, followed by salad and a duo intermezzo of lemon and lime sorbets, garnished with fresh fruit and mint. For their main entrées, guests had a choice of filet mignon in perigourdine sauce or sautéed halibut.
The reception décor was traditional, with intricate centerpieces of amnesia roses, pink and green hydrangea, silver brunia, lavender lisianthus, and delicate variegated ivory. The room was tastefully lit by Stortz Lighting. There were pin spots on each table composition, a color wash on the dance floor, some uplighting throughout the ballroom, and a soft spotlight on the band.
Hank Lane Music played a mixture of standards and swing with contemporary pieces mixed in. The band performed “Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen” for Michael and Claire’s first dance as husband and wife. The bride commented, “Hank Lane’s reputation precedes them. They are one of the most highly recognized entertainment companies in Manhattan.”
The wedding cake was a three-tiered masterpiece of alternating layers of chocolate raspberry and vanilla with a raspberry cream designed by Madame Butterfly Cakes.
Claire and Michael thanked their guests for being a part of their special day by sending them home with a personal favorite, blueberry, lemon, vanilla, and chocolate flavored macaroons from Bouchon Bakery. Following their wedding day, the newlyweds escaped on their honeymoon to Capri and Rome.

Jennifer and Robert met in 2002 through mutual friends, and it didn’t take long for certainty to set in. Their friendship turned into a loving relationship which led to a proposal at Robert Moses Beach, field 5, on April 18, 2008. “We sat down near the ocean, and Robert began to tell me how much he loved me. He started to put his jacket around me when he pulled a custom-made engagement ring from A & A Jewelers out of the pocket and kneeled in the sand and asked me to be his wife. I, of course, said yes and couldn’t wait to spread the news,” shared Jennifer.
With about two years until their big day, the newly engaged couple had plenty of time to plan their wedding. Jennifer and Robert called on wedding coordinator, Michelle from Classic Event Design to help ease any stress and to make most of the arrangements. She was available to answer any questions, refer vendors, and assist with keeping the two organized.
After months of planning, their April 9, 2010 wedding finally arrived. The ceremony took place at Our Lady of Lourdes Church, which is conveniently located in Robert’s neighborhood. The couple liked the modern décor, open floor plan, warm and intimate feel, and how the pews wrap around the altar. Jennifer walked down the aisle donning a diamond white Casablanca gown that she described as “classic and elegant.” It was made of silk satin, had a sweetheart neckline, diagonal ruching along the top bodice, and a slight pick-up style skirt. She held a bouquet of white calla lilies, hydrangea, dendrobian orchids, with one white rose tucked behind to represent her Grandma Rose. The groom sported a Ralph Lauren tuxedo with a white shirt, diamond white vest, and tie. Robert reminisced, “Reciting our vows was my favorite memory of the day. We were able to write our own, which made the ceremony that much more special.”
The reception was held at the Venetian Yacht Club, chosen for its classic and quaint atmosphere and welcoming staff. From the gorgeous ballroom with windows overlooking the Robert Moses Bridge and sunset views, marble dance floor, to the overall décor of the facility, Jennifer knew this was the perfect facility to host her wedding from the moment she walked into the Venetian Yacht Club. In addition, the staff treated the couple like royalty.
Chris from LI Sound DJ had guests out on the dance floor all night. Not only did the couple like the selection of music and how personable Chris was, but he also set the mood by providing lighting that changed colors throughout the evening. The newlyweds shared their first dance together as husband and wife to “History In The Making” by Darius Rucker. They also participated in the traditional parent dances.
Guests enjoyed a multitude of food during cocktail hour, from passed hors d’oeuvres to a variety of stations of pasta, carving, and seafood arrangements. A choice of glazed Atlantic salmon, filet mignon, duck jubilee, lemon roasted chicken, or grilled vegetable lasagna was served for dinner.
Designed by The Rolling Pin Bake Shop, the wedding cake was four-tiered with a satin, dark purple ribbon on the base of each tier. Cappuccino, espresso, and after-dinner cordials were also served during dessert, in addition to petite fours, chocolate covered strawberries, and truffles. Robert commented, “My mouth still waters to this day when I think of everything I ate.” Jennifer added, “The food was excellent and the selection was never ending. None of our guests went home hungry.”
Throughout the day’s events, Dennis of Denisimo Photography captured the special moments in a photojournalistic approach. Dennis’ artistic eye and modern style allowed him to take many creative pictures, while still providing Jennifer and Robert plenty of time with their guests. The couple was also impressed working with JPI Films. “Our wedding video is going to be the most memorable thing from our wedding. Joe used new techniques that made our wedding video priceless,” noted the bride. “Our video not only makes me cry, but it brings me back to relive our wedding every time I watch it.” Following the reception, Jennifer and Robert escaped to the Riviera Maya, Mexico for a honeymoon in paradise.

After John moved to Long Island, New York to start a new job at an automobile dealership, it didn’t take long for him to meet Erin. “John’s smile caught my attention immediately and I started asking my coworkers about him,” Erin shared. She introduced herself to him a few weeks later and even offered to show John around town. Following their initial meeting, the two began to spend time together and soon their relationship grew into love. On October 28, 2010, which marked their two year anniversary, Erin and John were walking on the Long Beach boardwalk with their dog, Casey. John got down on one knee and proposed at the location where their love began. With a little less than a year until their wedding day, Erin and John immediately began planning.
The ceremony was held outside at dusk in the lush gardens of the Fox Hollow. Seeing Erin for the first time was the groom’s favorite memory of the day. Erin walked down the aisle in a trumpet-style Priscilla of Boston gown with a double layer of cascading fabric along the side of her dress. A vintage inspired brooch accented its natural waistband while a simple elbow length veil and a gardenia flower hair clip completed her look. John sported a black tuxedo with silver vest and black tie.
The couple was also pleased with their photographer, Tina from Bella Pictures. “She understood that we wanted a modern twist on classic pictures,” commented Erin. “Tina was able to adapt to our large wedding party and capture the best moments,” added John. Exhale Productions captured the wedding day from beginning to end on video. The bride and groom agreed they were treated with professionalism and patience and are happy with the finished product.
From the moment they stepped onto the grounds of Fox Hollow they knew it was the perfect place to host their wedding. They loved the Winter Garden Pavilion room which features a cascading waterfall, fireplace, and atrium ceilings with skylight windows. Additionally, they were pleased with the professionalism of the staff. “They understood the importance of being involved in every aspect of the celebration,” noted the groom. Cocktail hour immediately followed where guests enjoyed a variety of food from seafood fra diavolo and crab quesadillas to spanakopita and honey smoked Virginia ham. As they ate and mingled, music from contemporary to jazz played in the background. Dinner began with baked shrimp stuffed with Fontana cheese wrapped in bacon followed by lemon intermezzo. Guests had a choice of seven entrées including duck l ‘orange, land and sea duet, shrimp scampi, Chateaubriand, grilled salmon, or North Fork vegetables.
The ballroom was decorated flawlessly with the help of Pedestals Floral Decorators who designed centerpieces in silver bowls with deep purple hydrangea, purple lisianthus, blue bird roses, navy delphiniums, and green berries. Votive candles, flower petals, and handmade table numbers made by Erin and her mother topped each table perfectly for a romantic ambiance. Steve from LIDJ knew exactly what music to play throughout the course of the night. Guests danced the night away from classic Italian to Kanye West and with Steve’s energy the dance floor was never empty. For their first dance as newlyweds, Erin and John held the spotlight to “Sideways” by Citizen Cope.
Following their wedding day, Erin and John escaped to Maui, Hawaii for their honeymoon. When asked if they had any advice for any future couples planning their wedding, Erin mentioned, “Don’t get wrapped up in the wedding; it’s about the marriage.” John added, “It’s important for couples to plan their marriage and expectations while planning their wedding so you’re not in for a rude awakening when the honeymoon is over.”

Michelle and John’s love story began in 2007 when court reporter Michelle set her eyes on attorney John. He asked her out to dinner and the rest was history. One of our favorite details from today’s “throwback” real wedding was Michelle’s taffeta wedding gown designed by Atelier Aimee. It was beautifully embellished with ruffles, which the design of the wedding cake was inspired by. “My favorite memory of the wedding was when I saw my wife-to-be first entering the aisle of the church in her gown and veil,” stated John. From the lavish cocktail hour and variety of dinner entrees to the dancing and socializing throughout the evening, Michelle and John’s wedding day was hit among guests!

When Danielle and Robert began planning their July 31, 2010 wedding, they knew it would be a grand celebration with a classic and elegant theme. The couple’s 200-person guest list was informed of the event with ivory pocket fold invitations. They had an ivory gloss border around the edging and black lettering giving the invitation a regal feel.
This legendary hotel and fantastic banquet facility with a well-known reputation in Long Island was chosen for its great service, high ceilings, gold chandeliers, luxurious design, and, of course, Danielle’s expertise of being the Assistant Catering Office Manager. “The Garden City Hotel is an extraordinary place that not only accommodates each customer but will enhance every aspect and personalize your event to make it unique,” noted the bride.
Upon arrival, guests enjoyed champagne and the couple’s signature drink of apple martinis before entering the Grand Salon Combo room, where the cocktail hour was held where a variety of food was served. “The staff at The Garden City Hotel was willing to go out of their way for us. They were organized, knowledgeable, and every one of our guests was pleased,” noted the bride.
JoVon Photography captured the special moments as they happened on film and video through a photojournalistic approach. Danielle commented, “JoVon Photography was creative, open to our ideas, and very easy to work with.”
Following their celebration of a lifetime, the couple honeymooned in Europe for two fabulous weeks, where they visited the romantic locations of Italy, Switzerland, Paris, and London. Danielle and Robert are currently excited for the next chapter in their lives.

Russo’s On The Bay • Howard Beach, NY
From the flawless black and red tablescapes and wedding day attire, to the precise attention to detail including live entertainment, Dina and Joseph’s wedding was nothing but dramatic and eventful for their guests. The two met in September 2007 at a christening for their mutual friend’s daughter, and after dating for about a year, Joseph proposed following a romantic dinner at The Chart House. “I was so shocked and thrilled! I couldn’t have been happier, and the ring was exactly as I had imagined it to be,” noted Dina. The couple immediately began planning their wedding.
After a yearlong engagement, the big day was finally here. Dina and her father arrived at St. Helen’s Church in a black 1949 Cadillac. As she stepped out of the car onto a red carpet, the bride immediately felt and looked like a movie star, from her hair, styled in a high updo that mimicked a Mohawk, to her gorgeous form-fitting Ines DiSanto gown.
The reception took place at Russo’s On The Bay and was decorated dramatically with black linens and two variations of centerpieces created by Pedestals Floral Decorators. Set in large black candelabras were balls of black baccara and black magic roses with hanging tea lights that illuminated the room. The second arrangement consisted of the same flowers sitting on top of three different sized candelabras. To enhance the dramatic look, deep red uplighting was used around the ballroom. During the full Venetian hour, a living table that was dressed in drag as a punk rocker, walked around with candy and cigars for guests, in addition to the sweet treats and red velvet wedding cake that guests indulged in. During the reception, a Michael Jackson impersonator entertained guests with a half an hour show.
The couple was pleased with the professionalism and creativity of Riccardo Studios who captured their wedding in photography and on video. For their pictures, Dina and Joseph went to Central Park and Belvedere Castle, which turned out to be the perfect setting for what the couple was looking for. At the end of the celebration the couple honeymooned in California and visited San Francisco, Napa Valley, and Los Angeles; from there they took a cruise to Mexico. Dina and Joseph are currently enjoying their son, Frankie and looking forward to more children in the future.

Niaja and Christopher never imagined being winners of the New York City Magical Wedding Contest, presented by the Scotto Brothers and WPIX 11, but they were fortunate enough to win a $100,000 dream wedding that included a reception and all of their vendors. The couple submitted their love story and their secret to happiness, and after a panel of sponsor judges voted, Niaja and Christopher were announced as finalists, among two other couples. Niaja and Christopher’s photographs and love stories were posted on the website where the public was then able to vote on their favorite couple. Luckily for Niaja and Christopher they were a fan favorite and were announced as the winning couple.
After months of public voting on various elements, such as wedding attire, wedding bands, and the honeymoon location, the couple’s magical wedding day finally arrived. Candles surrounded by fresh flowers and white rose petals lined the aisle in the Normandy room, where Niaja walked down it donning an elegant lace Pronovias gown.
Pictures and video were captured throughout the day by Rick Helman Photography. The couple liked that Rick didn’t pull them away from their guests for long amounts of time, allowing them to enjoy their reception. Bravura Art of Entertainment played a mix of genres that kept guests on the dance floor during the reception.
At the end of the celebration, guests were given a black-and-white damask photograph coaster set that contained the couple’s engagement pictures. Niaja and Christopher continue to thank the Scotto Brothers, WPIX 11, public voters, and the many other sponsors of the New York City Magical Wedding Contest who made their wedding dream a reality.
