Stephanie and Joe's Wedding at the Riverview

Ryan Williams

Stephanie and Joe were married on October 15th, with a ceremony at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Westfield, MA, and a reception at the Riverview in Simsbury, CT. 

These two met when their mutual friends decided to play matchmaker and set them up. After a few attempts to get together, they went to a concert, and the sparks started to fly. Fast forward to the beach in Michigan at sunset—where Joe proposed on top of the highest dune!

Stephanie and Joe were both nervous before the wedding that they would cry too much early on and look like a mess before they even got through the ceremony. Thankfully, they got most of it out during the first look. They were raw and emotional together, but it also gave them time to stabilize and ground themselves to put a lid on their emotions before they had to go out in front of their guests. 

The whole day was filled with so much fun and love! In the limo ride over to pictures, the wedding party burst into karaoke, and the DJ, James Hall, was fantastic all night. At the very end of the reception, the last song played was Billy Joel’s “Piano Man.” The entire room full of guests gathered on the dance floor to encircle the new couple, holding hands as they sang and then wished them well on their way out. 

Joe & Stephanie, thank you for allowing us to be part of this amazing day for both of you! You have so much love in your lives, and we wish you nothing but the best together!

Alana + Joseph's Wedding at The Riverview

Ryan Williams


Alana and Joseph were married on November 6th, with a ceremony at St. Joseph’s Church in Windsor, CT, and a reception at The Riverview in Simsbury.

These two met during the Blizzard of 2013, also known as Winter Storm Nemo. Alana had been living in NYC at the time but was home in Connecticut for the weekend for a big birthday bash. Unfortunately, Nemo was only getting worse, and a travel ban had been put in place for most of Connecticut and Massachusetts. Alana’s best friend (and later her maid of honor) hunted down the only restaurant that seemed to be open for a little birthday celebration, and during dinner, Joey and a few of his friends walked into the restaurant as well. Their tables were coincidentally close to each other, and Joey says he caught Alana staring at him all night!

Alana and Joseph opted not to have a first look before the ceremony, because they wanted to preserve that moment when the church doors opened and they saw each other across the aisle. The ceremony itself was beautiful, and the emotion was evident in Alana’s face as her two dads walked her down the aisle and she looked up to see her husband-to-be. 

After the reception, there was a cocktail hour with lamb, seafood, and a raw bar, and later at the reception, there was a sit-down dinner with a salad and entrees—and a dessert station!

Then, there was plenty of dancing all around as the band, Current Affair, kept everyone out on the dance floor. The bride and groom had their first dance as well as father/daughter and mother/son dances, and everyone could see the love they had not only for each other but for their families.

Alana & Joseph, thank you for choosing us to be part of this amazing day! Congratulations, and may your future always be bright!
