Carmela and Justin at The Shadowbrook


Carmela-Justin-ShadowbrookJustin’s fingers swelled from the heat (and probably nerves) and I couldn’t get his wedding band on! He ended up putting it on himself.

Traffic was horrendous that day, people were stuck in the town where the ceremony was and couldn’t get out! Luckily we had a pretty big gap in between our Mass and our cocktail hour so people weren’t too late to the cocktail hour.Carmela-Justin-ShadowbrookThe night before, I wanted to have everything laid out and ready to go. I went for the jewelry my mom got me from Macy’s and it was gone! We absolutely could not find it anywhere! The morning of the wedding my parents went shopping to a local jeweler and picked up some items for me but I ended up opting for my mom’s pieces, which meant a lot more to me than anything.Carmela-Justin-ShadowbrookFirst dance song?
