Wedding recap by Niki:

About the venues: There was some significance of having our ceremony at St. Paul’s … Adam grew up on the main road that St. Paul’s is located on and after dating a couple of months, we realized that the house he grew up in was directly next door to the house my grandmother grew up in! They they both walked down the road every day to go to school at St. Paul’s–just 2 generations apart. Our families both grew up in the same area and we still maintain a lot of roots there, so having the ceremony there was special for both of us.

Adam and I actually met in 8th grade and were friends for years. We reunited in 2009 at our mutual workplace – and that’s when the sparks flew! Firestone Country Club is just gorgeous and right down the road from our church–so it was a no brainer for us!

Vendor Shout Out

Genevieve Nisly Photography
Genevieve Nisly Photography who are remarkable. They are so artistic and creative – and focused more on catching the REAL moments instead of posing moments. It really makes looking back at our pictures so much more enjoyable. They worked so well together and got us everything we wanted.

Fraley Memory Productions  for Videography – which was actually one of the best decisions ever because my maid-of-honor surprised us and rapped her toast and it was all caught on tape! What a hilarious memory!

Amedeo’s Florist was amazing – Renee Amedeo really took my ideas and translated them beautifully. She really took a lot off my plate and was just wonderful.

Firestone Country Club
Heather Bodeine at Firestone helped up coordinate our menu and all reception details – she was phenomenal! My family owns an Italian restaurant and I really wanted some Tomaso’s pizza (I grew up on it!) as part of our menu, which (Thanks to Heather) we were able to use as our appetizers for cocktail hour. She also helped up incorporate limoncello (Italian liquor) champagne for toasts and freshly baked cookies & milk for a midnight snack! She did a fantastic job.

Our DJ’s were Earl and Mike from Brooks DJ service and they were crazy awesome! They engaged the crowd in ways I’d never seen a DJ do and we already have 4 couples that have booked them after our wedding. So funny and enthusiastic – I think they set the tone for an amazing reception.

Wedding Coordinator
Andrea Eastbourn was our wedding coordinator and did such a good job of organizing all the details of the day and making sure my mind was at ease as the day progressed. All the little details I had spent hours worrying about … she handled and was the best point person I could ever ask for!

MagnetStreet Weddings
Magnet Street was the absolute best decision. We did our save the date magnets, our ceremony programs, and our thank you cards all through Magnet Street and any time that I get the opportunity to use them again I will. We were so pleased with how everything turned out. The options they gave as originals were beautiful and creative and served as a wonderful template- then I was able to take the template and perfect it for my tastes and style. I loved being able to change colors and play with fonts and customize it the way I wanted. We definitely utilized the design team to change things and they were always so quick with their response and were incredibly accommodating – even after my 3rd revision (such patience they have!). We couldn’t be more pleased with our experience with Magnet Street!

Thanks for sharing your gorgeous day with us Niki and Adam! We wish you every happiness imaginable!!
