Happy Brides - Spring 2012

Jackie Simmermon

With wedding season hitting its prime for 2012, there have been three brides in my office; a fourth will take place this weekend and the fifth will be in December.  The constant theme with these brides as seen through their pictures and when they tell their stories is sheer happiness.  I can see so much joy on the smiles of these girls.  Jackie, MeeMee and Rosie all wed within a couple weeks of each other between March 23rd and May 5th and each girl had a unique experience.

Jackie was married on March 23rd at Congress Hall in Cape May, NJ.  Jackie bought her gown at Wedding Bells in Northfield, a small boutique with all your wedding day needs.  The owners, Tina and Terry have been in business for over 20 years.  Jackie choose a lace form fitting gown with a little bit of flare towards the bottom and a mermaid train.  The gown looked amazing on her.  Jackie and her husband, Chris dated for 3 years before tying the knot.  When asked what was your favorite part of the day, Jackie's response was "That all of our favorite people were there to party with us."  Perfect!

MeeMee Maiorano

MeeMee was married on April 20th in Mexico at the Dreams Tulum Resort and Spa.  In choosing a destination wedding, she also choose a great wedding gown.  Purchased from Sabrina Ann located in Ardmore, PA; this shop specializes in once worn, never worn or sample gowns.  MeeMee could not have picked a better suited gown for her event.  MeeMee and Matt dated for 2 years before their wedding and her favorite part about the day was (like Jackie) having all their close family and friends there (traveling) with them.

Rosie Klein
 Rosie was married on Cinque de Mayo at Paradisus La Perla in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.  She wore a Lazaro gown purchased at Bridal Garden in Marlton, NJ.  This gown was amazing.  It was strapless, form fitting lace to the thigh and then ruffled out BIG TIME for the bottom and train.  She also added a gorgeous silver beaded sash around the waist.  Rosie planned a perfect get-away wedding for herself and her guests.  In looking at the images, there was not a detail left undone. Rosie met Michael 3 years ago. Check out more about Rosie and her BIG day (including her Top 10 favorite moments) in the next issue of the magazine under "Real Weddings".

All of these girls couldn't be happier, floating on cloud nine with their recent nuptials.  So it made me ask myself (and fellow FaceBook friends) "What do you do to keep the love alive after being married for 5 years plus?"  The consistent answer I received was "Always make time for date night".  Some others that I liked were keep humor in the relationship, don't take your spouses bad days personal, make time for each other (even when just sitting at home), always be honest and most importantly always tell each other you LOVE THEM.  Being married for 6 1/2 years, my husband and I try to have fun; whether it is with our kids (ages 3 & 7) or alone....I love him just as much today as I have in the past 17 years we have been together!
