Both Maggie & Eric went to same parties & social events at Boston College; they spent their summer nights at the same local college bar. Eric even saw his future bride perform on stage, however it wasn't until six years after graduation that they finally met. It was a mutual classmates wedding that brought the two together. "Under the smoky cover of a New Jersey fog machine, we took the first of many sweet dance steps together," recalls Maggie. They hit it off and shared their first kiss while waiting in line for a hand-rolled cigar. After a year of long distance dating Maggie finally made the move up to Boston to be with Eric. On a West Coast trip from San Francisco to LA the couple decided to take a hike in Big Sur. A 45 minute climb and one wrong turn later and Eric got down on one knee and proposed as the sun set over the valley. For the big day the couple decided to stay near Maggie's hometown of Rumson New Jersey. The Church of the Nativity in Fair Haven was perfect for her ceremony and a tented outdoor reception at Rumson Country Club fit the black tie wedding theme. Maggie chose a beautiful Monique Lhuillier gown from Kleinfeld Bridal with a full skirt of organza flowers paired with killer Jimmy Choo stilettos in festive silver sparkle. Make up and Hair was done by Glen Goldbaum and a birdcage veil added a timeless elegance. Eric chose a tasteful Brooks Brothers Tuxedo paired with evil ninja socks, a perfect pairing! Classic knee length black Alfred Sung dresses were picked or the girls. The couples' invites were from Pauline's Papery in Red Bank. Maggie's mom Kathleen was the official "party planner" bringing in fabulous florists & event designers Craig Kiely & Darryn Murphy Designs to create soft fall table arrangements & stunning bouquets. Their beautiful tent was brought in and set up by Sperry Tents and The All Star Dance Band from Star Talent Inc had this crowd packed on the dance floor till the early morning hour. Mr. Jeary, father of the bride, may just win our best dancer of the year award!
Bathed in soft golden light Christy & Brett made their first steps as a newly married couple. Christy was radiant in her Priscilla of Boston gown with soft chiffon flower applique. Simple drop pearl earrings and bracelet from her mother were paired with a petal accented veil creating a soft classic look with a twist. "Dorothy meets Cinderella" shoes by Kate Spade made Christy's eyes sparkle bright. Darryn Murphy Designs created soft romantic bouquets of blush and cream roses. The ceremony was at Holy Cross of Rumson, with its beautiful red doors and vibrant community. The sheaths of wheat and simple elegant programs by Pauline's Paperie captured the autumn feel. For the ceremony they chose the beautiful Navesink Country Club were we were able to catch the last rays of warming sun before heading indoors for a great reception with music by The Kevin Osbourne Band.

So, with two seeming bodies, but one heart."
