Tell us about the bride Where you grew up went to school, where you work.

Hannah grew up in Demarest, NJ and went to school at Ramapo College of NJ where she earned a degree in media and advertising. She worked for a collection office for 10 years until the company closed in 2013 and she is now currently seeking employment.

Tell us about the Groom Where you grew up went to school, where you work.

David grew up in Dumont, NJ and went to school at Ramapo College of NJ where he earned a degree in history. He currently works as a technician in the operating room at Englewood Hospital.

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

It’s not an exciting story. We met several times through mutual friends at parties or outings, however we didn’t start really getting to know each other until a couple years later when a mutual friend had asked each of us to join his bowling team. Neither one of us are bowlers FYI. From there we started talking and getting to know one another and the rest is history.

Liberty House Bergen County Wedding Photographer 002 Liberty House Jersey City New Jersey

When did you know he/she was the one? Was there something he/she did?,etc.

There was nothing either one of us did per say. We both agreed that from the moment we really started having a conversation there was a strong connection, and we both sort of just knew that we had met the person we were going to marry. It was very simple really. Sometimes you just know.

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?)

Liberty House Bergen County Wedding Photographer 003 Liberty House Jersey City New Jersey

Months before the proposal happened we made a mutual decision that we both wanted to make a life long commitment to one another. So it was a surprise when it happened, but it wasn’t a surprise that it happened. The proposal probably happened about 5-6 months after that conversation. David booked a weekend at the Thayer Hotel in West Point, NY and I could tell something was off with him. He was acting more goofy than usual and was tripping over his words and even his own two feet. Because he is a history fanatic I didn’t think much of it when he wanted to walk me across the football field that a bunch of US presidents had once played on. He wanted to stop in the middle of the field but the sprinklers turned on so we ran off the field and that is when he got down on one knee and proposed. He was very nervous and I was freaking out, I was surprised but very, very happy!!

Liberty House Bergen County Wedding Photographer 004 Liberty House Jersey City New Jersey

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

What I love most about David is his ability to make me laugh. He has had me cracking up since I met him, and I can always have fun with him.

What I love most about Hannah is her appetite for fun. She always makes the best out of every situation and can always turn a negative into a positive and I admire that in her so much.

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

One of David’s many quirks is that he gets crazy about grocery shopping. He is so meticulous about buying groceries, things that aren’t even required to be refrigerated need to be a specific temperature. He takes at least an hour for each trip, because he insists on going up and down every single aisle in the store and looking at every single product…even if it’s just a quick trip for paper towels.

Liberty House Bergen County Wedding Photographer 005 Liberty House Jersey City New Jersey

Hannah does a lot of silly things, but the one that sticks out the most is how she laughs in her sleep. I am used to it now, but the first few times I woke up to her laughing hysterically in her sleep really startled me!

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

The one thing we are looking forward to is the party and just being able to celebrate our happiness with our friends and families!

What is your favorite trend for weddings right now?

We are not quite sure, maybe those new slow motion booths?

What inspired your decor or theme?

I’m not really sure we even have a theme… if we do it’s the Hannah & David themed. We didn’t want anything too outrageous or want to make any choices that didn’t represent our personalities. We are pretty down to earth and somewhat shy, so everything is sort of down to earth and subtle.

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

There’s nothing that can really prepare you for the planning! I guess the biggest thing that surprised us was the costs of everything, we knew we would be spending some money, but were really caught off guard with how much all the details cost.

Liberty House Bergen County Wedding Photographer 006 Liberty House Jersey City New Jersey

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

The first thing that stood out to us about the Liberty House was the outstanding views of NYC and the beautiful grounds at Liberty State Park. Growing up in Northern NJ you spend your whole life admiring the NYC skyline. We also liked the beautiful rustic style ballroom, it’s not too flashy but still gorgeous and elegant.

Bergen County Animal Shelter Pet Portrait Days

Our Bi-annual Bergen County Animal Shelter Pet Portrait Day,  April 18th and 19th 2014

MG 2754 214x300 Bergen County Animal Shelter Pet Portrait DaysApril 18th and 19th 2014 will be Bergen County Animal Shelter Pet Portrait Days. This is the perfect opportunity to help out the animals at the 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. Bergen County Animal Shelter Pet Portrait Days is requesting that you bring dry or wet Pedigree, but any brand of food will be accepted.

These dogs are looking for a chance to win hearts and find loving homes. If you’re unable to adopt at this time, then donating 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.

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.animal shelter in New Jersey Bergen County Animal Shelter Pet Portrait Days

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 Bergen County Animal Shelter Pet Portrait Days 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.

When did you know he/she was the one? Was there something he/she did?,etc.

I knew Erika was the one when I was waiting for her to pick me up one night. I was pacing and anxious, but she wasn’t even late. I knew that second I could never live another day without her.

I knew Tom was the one when I caught myself constantly looking at my phone, waiting for the next text, call, etc. and always anticipating the next time we would be 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?)

Tom and I had discussed getting married for a few months, knew we really wanted to do it and started discussing details. We had picked out a ring, but I was not sure when I would get it. After a long, horrible day at work, I arrived home to Tom lounging in the backyard, waiting for me. He asked me to go inside and check that he had picked the right wine for the evening and when I opened the refrigerator, there was my ring!!! I was totally surprised and speechless (which never happens!).

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

We can always find the humor in life’s ups and downs.

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

I am looking forward to how adorable our flower girl and ring bearer will look! I am sure they will steal the show!

I am also excited to celebrate with our guests and amazing bridal party!

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

Eric and Casey met the summer going into their Junior Year of college in New York City at bridesmaid Ashlen’s 21st birthday party. They were introduced by Rachel (another bridesmaid) and Jay (groomsman). Though sparks flew, Casey returned to school at Muhlenberg College in Pennsylvania and Eric to NYU. Shortly before graduation in 2007, they learned, that coincidentally, their first jobs landed them in the very same office building in midtown Manhattan. Pleasantly surprised by this, they decided to meet up for after-work drinks shortly after starting their new jobs, and they’ve been together ever since.
Another piece to the puzzle? They also happened to intern in the same building the same summer they met, and like a scene straight out of the movies (this was after meeting at the party!): Eric passed her in the office building’s palacial lobby and while Casey didn’t acknowledge him, Eric turned around like a gentlemen, and stopped to say a quick hello. Little did either of them know, they’d be engaged to be married one day.
In August of 2013, they celebrated their six year anniversary (until their real anniversary comes after the wedding!)

New Jersey Wedding Photography 118 Rockleigh Country Club | New Jersey Wedding Photography

When did you know he/she was the one? Was there something he/she did?,etc.

There was no “moment” so to speak, but roughly 2 years into the relationship, we both knew this was it. It was natural, it was a mutually shared feeling/sentiment. We were meant to be together and we both just knew.

 

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?)

It was a random Wednesday night. Eric had recently finished taking an exam that had been taking over his social life, so to celebrate his return to normalcy, his parents, Roni and Stanley, came into the city to meet Eric and Casey for a nice dinner — or so that’s what Casey thought. Casey had been running late after a long day at the office. When she finally got home to meet Eric before going to the restaurant, he opened their apartment door, asked her for her phone and her purse, grabbed her hand and walked her into the living room. Confused at what was happening, Casey asked “are your parents here?” Eric smiled, got down on one knee, and proposed. In utter shock, Casey dropped to her knees, cried like a baby, and funny enough, never actually said “yes.”
After reveling in the special moment together, Eric had another bomb to drop. He said to Casey “but there’s one small thing”. To which Casey, elated, and not caring less what that “one thing” was, said “What is it?” To which Eric replied: “Both of our parents are meeting us for dinner at Ben & Jacks Steakhouse, but…your parents don’t know about the engagement.” Casey’s mouth dropped. But luckily, after breaking the big news to Casey’s parents when they arrived at the restaurant, Nancy and Doug couldn’t be more overjoyed. The night continued with a lovely dinner in a private room, just Eric, Casey, Roni, Stanley, Nancy, and Doug — the new family.

New Jersey Wedding Photography 119 Rockleigh Country Club | New Jersey Wedding Photography

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

Casey’s response:
What I love most about Eric is that he loves every part of me, the good, the bad, all of it. He sees me at my best and my worst and he loves me all the more because of it.

Eric’s response:
What I love most about Casey is that she is truly a genuine and kind hearted woman who gives everything she has to her friends and family.

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

Dancing, dancing, and more dancing all night long!

New Jersey Wedding Photography 120 Rockleigh Country Club | New Jersey Wedding Photography

 

What is your favorite trend for weddings right now?

My favorite trend for weddings right now is “the first look” which I know has become more prevalent over the past few years. We are a couple that doesn’t want to miss a blink of our party so getting as many photos done before the ceremony as possible is a priority for us.

What inspired your decor or theme?

I think what inspired our decor/theme for the wedding the most was actually our own personalities. As a couple, we’re very classy, sophisticated, polished and we really wanted to reflect that in our decor and that is why we chose a very elegant look — our decor consists of all whites, golds, champagnes, very simply yet classic colors and themes.

On the weekends, my girls and I would go line dancing and little did I know it, Ean was a bouncer there. To give a little background, the bar had four different rooms, and I ony spent time in the Country room. However, Ean hates country music, so he was the bouncer in the rock room.

On June 6, 2010, Markate and I decided to have a night out line dancing. Throughout the evening, Marykate and I started talking to one of the bouncers who invited us to the after party for some drinks. So when the bar closed, we were told to sit in the rock room and wait for the bar to close. While waiting, Ean walked by and I grabbed him and said “I’m hungy… do you have food?” Ean looked at me (with a broom and garbage bag in hand) and said “Do I look like I have food?” Obviously we were in love at first sight!

Ean walked passed again, and I said “hey, do you have food?” Ean this time handed me peanuts and said, “You can eat these..” Over the next hour, I continued to bother him, until Marykate and I decided we were ready to head home. Before I left, Ean and I exchanged numbers…

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?)

On Tuesday, before Christmas, I was at work and having a really bad day. I was thinking to myself, when I get home, I am going to yell and scream and workout so I can relax. Meanwhile, Ean had something else planned… When I got home, there was a gift under the Christmas Tree. Obviously, being I was already angry, I started yelling at Ean about the gift. “That better not be for me… we said we weren’t going to do anything for each other this year..” Ean said, “I decided to get you something anyway.” I of course, continued to yell, “I didn’t get anything for you.. why would you do that..” blah blah blah! So I tried walking past him to go into the other room.. He stopped me and said, “just open it..” “No!”; “please just open it..”; “Alright…”

I sat on the floor and started opening this gift… When I opened the first gift, there was another gift instead. So I started opening the second gift, and there was ANOTHER gift inside. Three more gifts later, I finally got to the remaining box. During this time, I was getting more and more angry and Ean was just laughing at me! I just kept thinking, we said we were doing nothing for each other for Christmas, so wouldn’t it be funny if he got me a box filled with nothing… honestly I wouldn’t put it past him. Well inside the last box, there was a note: “Go into the guest room.”

Ean is very supportive and understanding.

 What inspired your decor or theme?

As a result of getting married in a castle, we figured the princess theme would be perfect! Horse and carriage.. castle.. Couldn’t go wrong! icon smile New Jersey Wedding Photography at Skylands Manor

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

I wish I walked through the entire venue after it was set up to see what each room looked like. Everything worked out perfectly.

Why did you pick your Wedding Venue, What Attracted you

Ean and I researched a bunch of venues and when we saw the Castle online we decided to check it out. As soon as we saw it we fell in love, but the ultimate decision came down to my parents and if they liked the venue as well. Ean and I left asking my parents to visit the venue. When they did, I found out my mom and dad had been married in a castle. As a result they fell in love with the idea of Ean and I getting married in the castle, and now the rest is history! icon smile New Jersey Wedding Photography at Skylands Manor

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

Pat entered and won a fall 2008 NFL fantasy football league that included Lauren and her friends from home, including groomsman Jose Larin, who was Pat’s roommate. On a subsequent trip of Lauren and her friends to Atlantic City in Feb. 2009, Pat arrived to join the group and met Lauren. She was intrigued, even though Pat uncharacteristically had a full beard grown in on their first meeting, and Lauren is no fan of facial hair. That first night ended with Pat and Lauren sharing a vanilla milkshake at a diner and led to romantic dates, dating, and an enagagement!

2)When did you know he/she was the one? Was there something he/she did?,etc.

Dinner at Buddakan in Olde City Philadelphia, an intimate conversation about our relationship, followed by a dinner at Il Brigante at the South Street Seaport in New York City in the summer of 2010 where Pat told Lauren he loved her for the first time.

3)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?)

Lauren is notorious for sniffing out surprises, so Pat tiptoed his way toward the big day.

He bought the ring, told Lauren he planned Saturday, Feb. 18 out in Manhattan to celebrate his upcoming birthday and suggested that Friday night they simply stay in. The reason he gave Lauren: this could be his last full weekend off, at home, until the end of the interminable NHL season, and he could use the sleep. The real reason: Pat couldn’t bear having to keep the proposal secret for an entire overnight with Lauren by his side.

You know what happened next.

Lauren suggested they visit Atlantic City on Friday instead. She didn’t want to lose her hotel reward points and needed to stay there by March. Pat accepted but needed Lauren in Manhattan the next day, so instead of driving, he said a phrase he never thought he say:
take a bus.

Pat agonized over dinner, then all night and on Saturday morning, trying his hardest to be himself and not show one of his many poker tells. But his plan already was in motion: on the bus ride up the Parkway, Laurens mother called her cell phone and asked that she drop off $20 of spending money to her 97-year-old grandmother, Margie, in Downtown Manhattan before dinner.

Arriving in midtown, Pat had already secured the ring in the pocket of a suit jacket he planned to wear that night. The original rings case was too bulky, though, so he had rummaged through his dresser earlier that week for an alternative.

Notre Dame class ring case? I think she rather see the ring and not the gold ‘ND’ staring back from the inside. High school ring case? Plain, black, that’ll do.

Off they went to Bryant Park for some ice skating. But wait. A long line. Time was ticking. Dinner reservations, Pat told Lauren, were at Brigante, the site of their first dinner following Pats move to New York and a block away from her grandmother. (How perfect. They can drop off the money on the way!)

Pat recommended they each bring a pink rose Downtown – the same loving pink rose that Grandma Margie had given to Lauren for her birthday each year. Pat’s corner bodega was fresh out, so he started to panic in the cab, but the florist on Fulton Street came through in a big way – two pink roses, wrapped individually and in full bloom.

The couple arrived upstairs in Grandma Margies apartment, and amid a comedy of emotions and signals, Pat pleaded with her aide to leave the room for a few minutes so he could pop The Question. The oblivious aide cooked Margie dinner and tided up the kitchen for what felt like an eternity to Pat, but was really only about 15 minutes until Mr. Volpe called her cell phone and politely told her to hit the showers.

With just the three of them now in the apartment, Lauren presented her pink rose to Grandma Margie.

Thank you, her grandmother said, smiling.

Then Pat looked over to Laurens grandma and said, “This rose is actually for you to give to Lauren. Grandma, not knowing what was about to happen, nevertheless looked up and said: Lauren, I’d like you to have this rose. I love you so much.

Lauren accepted the rose and then looked at Pat, who knelt on one knee and said: Lauren, I also have something I’d like to give you. He took out the ring and spoke as best he could.New Jersey Wedding Photographer 003 New Jersey Wedding Photography at The Grove

Lauren cried hysterically enough that she had to ask Pat later if she had been able to say the word  She cried enough that her grandmother hilariously told her, Stop crying.

Then the rest of the plan kicked in – dinner at Gramercy Tavern, a room at the midtown Marriott, a Sunday dinner in Jersey with the parents … until Pat had to return to Madison Square Garden hours later and cover Rangers-Blue Jackets with a big smile on his face. >

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

Pat: I love how much I love Lauren, how much she loves me, and how confident I am that we will be celebrating a 50th wedding anniversary when we are 79.

Lauren: I love everything about Pat. We complement each other really well. He makes me feel like a million bucks every day.

New Jersey Wedding Photographer 004 New Jersey Wedding Photography at The Grove

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

Pat: Lauren beat me in the fantasy football championship in 2012, and she is addicted to the app Candy Crush.

Lauren: Pat likes talking on the phone more than most girls do, and he won’t admit it.

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

Both of us: Sharing the day with everyone who got me/us here and making them as happy as I am.

New Jersey Wedding Photographer 005 New Jersey Wedding Photography at The Grove

7) What is your favorite trend for weddings right now?

We don’t like trends. We organized a wedding that reflects us.

8) What inspired your decor or theme?

Lauren created an original theme: Romantic Modern Elegance

New Jersey Wedding Photographer 006 New Jersey Wedding Photography at The Grove

 

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

Pat: I don’t regret anything.

Lauren: An 18-month engagement is way too long.
