Stonebridge Manor Wedding
Stonebridge Manor Wedding
From high school sweethearts to newly weds, therefore this beautiful Stonebridge Manor wedding was one for the books! Erika and Patrick put so much effort into ensuring that every single one of their guests had a blast. Their wedding film definitely shows that no one wanted it end!
Erika and Patrick sealed their ceremony with a kiss at the “Garden Pavilion”. Exotic flowers, statement trees, and lush green grass surrounded their ceremony creating a stunning site to say ‘I do’! One of our favorite parts of their ceremony was the lighting of the unity candle done by both of their mothers. This symbolized two families becoming one and it was even more special with their mothers involved.
They chose to write their own vows, and let me just say, I think every guest shed a tear. The love and passion they have for each other was perfectly demonstrated in their handpicked words. They are without a doubt made for each other!
Once they were announced as the new Mr. and Mrs. McSweeney, Patrick ended the ceremony with the Jewish tradition, breaking of the glass. This was done at the end of the ceremony to honor the suffering of the Jewish people and remember the world is in need of healing even at the height of personal joy. We love that they added their own personal touch to their ceremony by doing this sacred tradition.
Cocktail Hour & Reception
After the ceremony, the couple’s love radiated through our camera as we captured their first moments as newly weds. Their outpour of happiness was very apparent in these absolutely stunning shots we captured with the beautiful surroundings of Stonebridge Manor. Meanwhile, their guests enjoyed drinks and hors d’oeuvres during the cocktail hour.
Following the cocktail hour, the reception began in the “Grand White Draped Tent”. As soon as all the guests were seated, Erika and Patrick made their grand entrance as the new Mr. and Mrs. McSweeney. They were welcomed by their bridal party, family, and friends. After the traditional first dances, everyone in the room was up on their feet in a conga line that cheerfully danced through the whole reception tent. In addition to the bride and groom were lifted in chairs by the guests bouncing up and down to put the perfect ending on this dream wedding.
This wedding was right out of a storybook, all the love shown throughout the day proved that Erika and Patrick are surrounded with support and that makes for a very happy ending!
