Tami and Arial Say I Do at Teaneck Marriott at Glenpointe

A Wedding at Teaneck Marriott at Glenpointe - New Jersey Bride

“The one word used to describe my wedding is “epic.” My husband and I have grown up in the entertainment business and own an entertainment company, so we knew we were going to go big. The planning was smooth and every detail was covered; the reception room boasted LED cocktail tables, a white dance floor, food stations, a candy buffet and more desserts than we had room for! We are not a typical bride and groom who want to socialize and eat our dinner; we danced all night from beginning to end with all 270 of our guests”

“My husband changed his suit jacket three times while I moved easily in my wedding dress. And speaking of the dress…oh boy the dress! When shopping for my gown, I knew that I wanted it to be sexy and different, and I needed something that was not restricting so I could dance. This dress was more than I could have asked for and Arial, my husband, said it was absolutely perfect.”

“To compliment my old-Hollywood glamour gown, my hair and makeup had a bit of a Marilyn Monroe look–classy and sexy at the same time. Our bridal party looked awesome and the ladies rocked black dresses in all different styles by the same designer, along with electric purple heels!”

“The color scheme was vibrant, and our ceremony was upbeat as the officiant and bridal party swayed and spun down the aisle. But nothing could beat the look on Arial’s face as I walked down the aisle; This is a man who does not cry. With his brother standing by his side, holding him,  he teared up as I walked towards him on my father’s arm. From the bottom of my heart, it was the best night of our lives. We remember every minute and wouldn’t ever wish to change a thing. It was a wedding to remember–white dance floor, dancing on the clouds, percussion, and most of all our beloved family and friends.”

Your favorite part:
“Finally dancing our wedding song with one another and singing the lyrics. Arial and I have the same birthday and 15 years ago when we met we realized we also had the same wedding song in mind…but we had never danced to this song together until our wedding night.”

Advice for other brides:
“Enjoy your wedding. Don’t worry about the planning details once it gets close to your date. You have done the hard work and the wedding is the time to stop and enjoy your evening. Have fun. Be outgoing. You want your photos and videos to capture what you were not able to see right in front of you, so don’t hold anything back. Plus, we really didn’t eat so I always suggest for brides to eat dinner! From all the day’s excitement, I found myself with no appetite so Arial and I ate the next morning as we sat and reminisced about our wedding. Above all, my biggest piece of advice to you is–wear the dress of your dreams but don’t let the dress prevent you from moving around. Let it be a dress that moves with you not against you.”
