On a chilly Saturday in mid-March, Judy and Ray celebrated their commitment to one another in an exquisite wedding at The Jericho Terrace in Mineola, New York.
The bridal parties began their day at the vibrant Viana Hotel & Spa. There, the men and women tasked with standing beside Judy and Ray as they solidified their union, prepared for the big day ahead.
The women readied themselves, putting the finishing touches of jewelry and other accessories on to complement their soft pink bridesmaid dresses. Across the building, the men told jokes and pumped each other up with trying to figure out the perfect way to tie their bows. It was definitely a sight to be seen!
After making their way to The Jericho Terrace in Mineola, the happy couple was ready and eager to say “I do.”
In a touching moment that defined the entire wedding, son Isaiah escorted his mother Judy down the aisle alongside Judy’s father, to meet Ray at the end of the altar. As she neared her husband-to-be, Judy’s beautiful smile became even more radiant. Truth be told, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house from this heartfelt start until the very end. Couple that tear-jerker with the special vows Ray made to Isaiah and Judy’s daughter Amy, and it’s safe to say that we all should have brought more tissues!
The reception immediately followed and it was phenomenal from start to finish. Judy and Ray shared their first dance under the light-filled atrium of Jericho Terrace. Afterwards, friends and family dined on a variety of buffet options including a raw seafood bar. They also got to enjoy a slice of one of the most decadent cakes we’ve ever laid eyes on!
From that point on, there was a whole lot of dancing going on! Thankfully, Judy was prepared with a gorgeous white sequined wedding reception dress.
Judy’s sister put it perfectly when she said: “Every fairytale has a happy ending.” This wedding was a fairytale in every sense of the word. It was dramatic, beautiful, and above all, joyous.
Judy and Ray, your wedding was everything a wedding should be and more. Thank you for sharing your special day and beautiful union with us!
