In honor of our third anniversary yesterday, I've been sharing my favorite wedding photos with you all week. I hope you enjoyed our getting ready moments, our wedding ceremony & our newlywed moments. Today, let's take a look at our reception. While our wedding ceremony was the most meaningful, our winter white wedding reception was the most FUN:
Just a hop, skip & jump away from our beloved Hoboken, our wedding reception was held at the
Hyatt on the Hudson, a waterfront hotel boasting incredible New York City views. We wanted our wedding reception to feature the very same views we admire from Hoboken so our wedding guests could enjoy them. With the magnificent New York City skyline glittering beyond ballroom windows, the winter white wedding decor was kept very simple. Simple white carnation centerpieces, glowing candles & striped ivory linens graced each table. An all-white wedding cake, square with cascading orchids, completed the minimal, sweet look.
Our wedding reception was a traditional celebration with eating, drinking, toasting, dancing & general merriment. Of course, it was the most special night of my life because I was married to my love & surrounded by our loving family & friends. Some of my favorite memories:
* Pausing to breathe & appreciate the moment. My husband & I sat hand-in-hand at our sweetheart table & took a few minutes just to look around at our family & friends, realizing the muchness of the occasion.
* Dancing to "What A Wonderful World" with my new husband, surrounded by our family & friends with the New York City skyline enveloping us.
* Last Dance to the Jersey anthem, "Livin' on a Prayer" by Bon Jovi. My husband took the mic & belted out the song to a packed dance floor!
In short, we had the time of our lives!

** Please note that I have used the term "Day-of Coordination" because it is the common term. In reality, Eileen helped me with ALL the final preparations of wedding planning, starting about one month prior to the wedding & ending with the last dance of the reception. We had such a blast at our wedding because we knew Eileen & her team were taking care of every last detail!
