Tell us about the proposal. (Did you see it coming, how long was it in the planning?, how did you feel? nervous, excited, freaking out?)

Brian proposed to Joan in on June 28 2015. Apparently he had been planning it for years. We went to Hershey park for the weekend . Joan suspected something was up but wasn’t sure, she knew he was planning some surprise. The night they got to Hershey the hotel screwed up and sent the “Romance Package” with champagne and strawberries to the room a day early. Joan was thrown off though, and though that was the surprise. The next day at the park, they went on rides and Joan’s parents and niece were meeting them at 10. Joan and Brian went on the Hershey Kissing Tower to wait for her parents and in line Joan ‘patted’ down Brian jokingly to check for a box with a ring. She found nothing. Finally we went on the ride , Joan was looking around and listening to the history of Hershey park when Brian reached into his pocked and inside the camera case he hid the ring. He “kind of ” got down on one knee (it was cramped in the cabin) and looked at Joan. Joan , shocked, said “oh no”. Then Brian said “Will you Marry me?” Joan said ” yes” the ride was over and they got off the ride and began calling people. Joan was very nervous to tell everyone but wanted to wait til her parents arrived to tell them. Joan’s family knew and after the vacation had a small surprise party waiting for them at home.

Tell us the one thing you love most about each other.

Joan loves Brian’s ability to do anything. He’s ingenuity is amazing. He constantly impresses me with his understanding of physics and how things work. He can do anything. Brian loves that Joan is up for anything especially when it comes to roller coasters. He loves that she is his other half and makes him so happy. He also loves her eyes.

If you feel comfortable, share with us something silly or quirky the other person does.

Brian loves to ramble on and on about roller coasters. We call it “opening Pandora’s box” if you ask him about them. Its also party of the incredible wealth of knowledge Brian has that amazes Joan .

Besides getting married -What is the one thing you are looking forward to on your wedding day?

Having a party with all of our friends and family and loved ones. Also its Master’s weekend so we’re looking forward to some golf on TV!

What is your favorite trend for weddings right now?

The use of Pinterest and Etsy. It has made this whole process easier and more creative.

What inspired your decor or theme?

Brian’s favorite color is orange so Joan knew she wanted orange incorporated but green is Joan’s favorite color and the two colors don’t go well together. Joan loves purple, its her birth stone. On pinterest purple and orange weddings are very oddly beautiful. The theme quite traditional , like Joan and Brian but we have little quirks that represent us, like the roller coaster save the dates, the roller coaster flutes, the Cinderella cake cutters, & the jeep flower holders.

What is one thing you wish you would have known earlier in regards to planning?

Nothing yet

Why did you pick your Wedding Venue, What Attracted you.

The room . When we walked into the main ballroom we both said ” Wow” . That’s the only place it happened.

Ramapo Bergen Animal Refuge

The Ramapo Bergen Animal Refuge Says Thank You

rbaf

Our recent pet portrait days event was such a huge success. We had photographed over 20 dogs in 2 days and was able to donate over $500 in dog and cat food. This is an event that we try to do at twice a year so that the shelter can get pet supplies and bring out pet adoption awareness throughout the year. This a social cause that is dear to my heart. There are so many animals just being abused and/or tossed away on the streets that need good loving homes. One can very well find the best companion in a shelter pet rather than going to a puppy mill or pet shop. Many of these animal came from loving homes that the owners just couldn’t care for them anymore. This shelter operates on donations and support from volunteers. And they could use all the help we can give them.

Ramapo  Bergen Animal Refuge RABARI and David Eric Photography would like to thank everyone that helped in making this event a success and all our clients that donated food. We are hoping to make this a bigger event next time so that we can be able to get more for the shelter. If you weren’t able to participate in the event this time don’t worry, we will try to do it again in the fall.

Watch our blog for future announcements about our next event coming soon.

Don’t forget to friend us on our facebook fan page and like our business page to keep up to date on all the news here at David Eric Photography.

Here are some of the pets that participated in our event as well as the beautiful thank you note that was sent from Ramapo Bergen Animal Refuge RABARI. Enjoy them everyone.

The Tide North Haledon New Jersey Winter Wedding

Tell us how you first met? Who what when where why? Give us the dirty Details.

Don and I actually went to high school together. We weren’t high school sweethearts or anything but we did know each other. Don’s sister, Allie, and I played softball and graduated together.

 

Tell us about the proposal. (Did you see it coming, how long was it in the planning?, how did you feel? nervous, excited, freaking out?)

I had no idea that Don was proposing. It was a complete surprise. I came home from work on a Saturday and Don had made dinner. This is no surprise, Don cooks very often when he is home first. We ate dinner and went about our night like any other night. I was on the couch and Don asked if I wanted to hear a song he wrote for me (Don writes songs and plays the guitar). So of course I said yes. The song was beautiful and heart felt. When he was done singing, he flipped over the guitar and tapped on the back was an open black box with the most amazing ring I had ever seen. He asked me to marry him and i SCREAMMMMMMEEEDDDD YES! To be honest, then next half hour or so is a blur, as we both were over the moon with excitement. Once we composed oursleves, we started making phones calls to our families to let them know the great news.

The Tide North Haledon New Jersey Winter Wedding

Tell us the one thing you love most about each other.

We would both have to agree on our mutual respect for one another. Any one can say loyalty, honesty, trust etc… But with out question our respect and open line of communication with each other is what makes our relationship strong and stable.

Besides getting married -What is the one thing you are looking forward to on your wedding day?

We are both very excited to be with our family and friends on our special day. Nothing means more to us than having the people we love most in this world come and support our love.

We wanted a very neutral themed wedding. Nothing flashy or crazy. Simple and elegant is what we were aiming for.

Ramapo Bergen Animal Refuge Oakland New Jersey Pet Portrait Days

Our Bi-annual Pet Portrait Days for the Ramapo Bergen Animal Refuge Shelter is set for May 1st & 2nd 2015

_MG_2754May 1st and 2nd 2015 will be Pet Portrait Days for the Ramapo Bergen Animal Refuge Shelter  Oakland New Jersey.  Will be held at David Eric Photography 100 West Pleasant Ave, Maywood New Jersey. This is the perfect opportunity to help out the animals at the  Ramapo Bergen Animal Refuge Shelter Oakland New Jersey shelter awaiting their new forever homes. Donate just $25 worth of dog food to the shelter and you and Fido or Mittens can get a beautiful 5×7 portrait at David Eric Photography.

Photography of pets has become more and more popular in recent years as owners view their pets as part of the family and want to have a lasting memory of them and a place on the mantle with the rest of the family. Unfortunately, there is still a great need for Animal Shelters in NJ and it is the public’s help that keeps them going year after year. What better way to help than to donate food and come away with a lasting treasure.

Pets of NJ need your help and you don’t have to have a pet to help out. Anyone is welcome to bring by dog food for the shelter. The (RBARI) Ramapo Bergen Animal Refuge Shelter is requesting that you bring Mighty Dog, Nutro or Proplan canned ground dog food or Friskies / Fancy Feast canned wet food, but any brand of food will be accepted.

These dogs and cats are looking for a chance to win hearts and find loving homes. If you’re unable to adopt at this time, then donatingforrester_0025 food for Pet Portrait Day is one way you can help in a big way. Remember, you don’t have to have a pet to donate.  Homeless pets of NJ wouldn’t have a fighting chance if it were not for the compassion and help from people like you and volunteers who selflessly do whatever they can to help. Donations such as dog food help to keep these shelters going and gives these lost souls the chance at a new and wonderful life. Every animal at the (RBARI) Ramapo Bergen Animal Refuge Shelter in Oakland New Jersey shelter has a story, one of abuse, neglect, or abandonment. Their eyes tell a story of pain, loneliness, and a desire to be loved. Your donations can make the difference in their lives, giving them what they need before they finally go to their forever homes.

The pet photography sessions will take place at David Eric Photography at 100 West Pleasant Ave., Maywood, NJ. You can call to set up your appointment at 201-880-5400 and you can visit their website at www.petphotographybydavideric.com. This is a great chance to immortalize your pet while helping a great cause.
