After the wonderfully romantic and sentimental ceremony officiated by the fabulous Reverend Vanessa L. Siders, everyone filed in to the ballroom of Crestwood Manor for several hours of dining and dancing. Once all of the guests found their seats, Brian, Suzette and their children made their entrance. The happiness and pride was so apparent on all of their faces, especially Brian’s. It just made your heart swell.
All of the operatives were invited to attend the wedding, and most were able to. It was a really terrific way for all of us to come together and congratulate each other on a job well done. It was very exciting for all of us to see in person the way that everything went off, since everyone was so intricately involved. Plus, everyone wanted to see whether or not Suzette was really surprised about the wedding. Incidentally, the DJ (who was not an official operative) asked Suzette whether or not she knew about anything or even had a sneaking suspicion, and she confirmed that she was 100% stunned It was such a great feeling!
After Brian and Suzette danced their first dance, I made the toast. I couldn’t help but get choked up. It’s funny– I deal with people on a daily basis, give presentations, and tell people what to do all the time, but I am absolutely HORRIBLE when it comes to off-the-cuff speaking. I should have written something out, but I didn’t. I really wanted to thank all of the people that were involved with putting everything together, but I didn’t. And for that, I am so, so, so sorry! I would like to take this post to thank all of the operatives involved with putting our very first Stealth Wedding together:
Crestwood Manor:General Manager Randy Janis, Banquet Manager Samantha Albertson and the rest of the team at Crestwood were the best people to work with. Not only did Samantha pose as a model on the day of the event, Randy and his team were constantly at our disposal, following up, making sure that everything was running on or close to schedule. I can honestly say that Randy and Samantha were as excited about this event as the rest of us were, and they worked very hard to make sure that it was perfect.
her contact information, please leave a comment with your email address and I will send you her phone number.
Sue Mignano & Amy Pedatella were the outstanding photographers that were there all throughout the day. You can see all of the photos from this event on Sue’s site. If you need the password, leave a comment with your email address, and I will send it to you.
The Traveling Vineyard: Consultants David and Emily Margulis also provided excellent wine for the guests to enjoy.
