The Wedding

DATE: October, 2007
RECEPTION: West Orange, NJ

Joey and Jen have chosen to use the following wedding professionals...

PHOTOGRAPHY: Tobias Morgan Studios - (973)239-8239
"After being involved in the industry for 20 years, I've seen more than my share
of wedding photographers. Tobias Morgan's wedding and portrait photography
is simply spectacular. He has won many first place awards in his field at both
local and national levels. He also holds a Master of Photography degree from
the Professional Photographers of America."

DISC JOCKEY: Golden Note Entertainment - (973)790-7981
"Long before we were engaged, Jen and I saw Golden Note Entertainment perform
at a bridal show that we had a booth at. We were both very impressed with
their professionalism and performance. I was later introduced to Gerry Siracusa,
Golden Note President, MC and Event Consultant at another bridal show.
After we got engaged, Jen and I both agreed that Golden Note would
absolutely be our first choice for our wedding entertainment."

VIDEO: mediaWORX - (973)439-WORX
"If you're looking for high quality wedding cinematography, mediaWORX is the answer.
I've been familiar with owner Craig G's work since the early 1990's. When it came
to choosing a videographer, it was without a doubt going to be mediaWORX."

PARTY BUS: Toptown Limousine - (877)353-LIMO
Why cramp everyone up in a stretch limo, when you can have a spacious party bus?
With nearly 20 people in the bridal party, we think a party bus is the perfect choice!

ROLLS ROYCE: 1960 Rolls Royce Phantom - (201)794-0506
We would like to thank Steven Tsakalos for providing the ultimate ride. When it comes
to classy weddings, the Rolls Royce has always been a popular choice. "Without
any question, Steve's Rolls Royce Phantom is a rare stunning classic!"

We would also like to thank... Bridal Billy at Bridal Expo, one of the best attended
bridal shows in the NJ, NY, PA and DE areas... Jimmy at ATC Jewelers (Saddle
Brook, NJ) for a beautiful engagement ring... Betty at The Atrium Country Club...

The Honeymoon

It's final ... we've decided to go with a romantic honeymoon in Antigua.
3 days of relaxation at Jumby Bay ... 4 days to party at Sandals Antigua.

Our other top choices included the following destinations...

1) a Zihuatanejo Honeymoon (Mexico)

2) a Puerto Vallarta Honeymoon (Mexico)

3) a Fiji Honeymoon

4) a Costa Rica Honeymoon

5) a Hawaii Honeymoon
