What made our wedding unique were all of the details we put into everything we did. Designing the centerpieces, flowers, chalkboard signs, everything! We also incorporated some of our favorite things into the celebration, from our favorite band – The Insiders- to the mini cheesesteak station. We tried to have it reflect our personalities as much as possible.
We also had a bagpiper named Jim Reimbeiz, he plays in the choir at my (Christi’s) parents’ church, and he was actually Mike’s High School English teacher! We decided to have a bagpiper to honor Mike’s Irish side. It really added a special touch to our day!
Venue- Why RiverCrest Golf Club?
What advice can you offer to future brides & grooms?
Destination: Honeymoon- Antigua
If you can, definitely stay for more than a week. 1 week was just not enough for us! And try to leave the Monday open when you get home after so you have a day to recoup.
We loved our Florist, Moles Flower Shop – Cindy did an awesome job at creating my perfect vision of what I wanted for my flowers! Our photographer, Chris Hensel was amazing, as well as our Videographer, Martin’s accent wedding videos. We also highly recommend Boardwalk Photo Booth Rentals. Everyone loves photobooths, and it was a big hit!
Tell us about The Insiders Band:
When I met Mike, he introduced me to The Insiders Band. Ever since, we have been following them around locally. They usually play in Collegeville at Davinci’s, Molly Maguire’s in Phoenixville and down the shore in Sea Isle City. It just made sense to have them play at our wedding, since we love them so much!
