Stefanie & Dan got married in August 2015 at the church in Leonia, NJ where Stefanie grew up.  Stefanie is from an Italian Catholic family while Dan is British so they planned a wedding that had a mixture of both American and British traditions. Since many family and friends were traveling in from overseas, they wanted their day to be extra special and be the most fun and memorable wedding their loved ones could experience.   

Cigars: La Casa Grande

For their dress and tuxedo, the couple wanted to spare no expenses since it was a once in a lifetime event.  Stefanie is wearing an intricate lace Enzoani dress while Dan is wearing a custom Indochina tuxedo.  Dan’s jacket has their initials embroidered inside (with the date written the English way.)  Some other British highlights were the Union Jack socks worn by the groomsmen, the English Candy Bar, and the Telephone Booth Card Holder placed at the front of the reception.

Some bride Q&A…

What was the hardest part of invitation planning?

The hardest part was narrowing down guests to invite as we wanted to keep the number close to 200.

What was the easiest?

The easiest part was hiring Couture Ink from the start, Robin totally made our vision of our invite come to life, even creating a custom monogram with the exact romantic feel we wanted. She handled everything from start to delivery and we received so many compliments on how beautiful our invites here!

What were the guest’s reactions to the invite?

Everyone thought they were incredible, so classic and elegant, exactly our hope for them!

What else would you like to add?

I also do Corporate Communication for Jaguar North America so they kindly offered me 2 beautiful Jaguar XJL vehicles to use on our special day. Work is a huge part of my life so it was great that we were able to incorporate that into the wedding as well.

“Although planning the wedding was so much fun, the best part is what comes after. Its the everyday you get to spend with your best friend, creating a new chapter in life together.”
