Old Friends Reunited and It Feels so Good! Ceili + Justin Married!

We lived down the street from each other. We played ball together. We did activities in school together. We, the photographer, bride and myself, have known each other since elementary school and we came together again for the bride's big day!

Several months ago Ceili Acosta contacted me about possibly needing a day of coordinator. Of course I'm going to help! I am honored to help an old friend! And I should have known Ceili was keeping it so family friendly. She used another good friend Jessica Forno (now Pajimula) for photography, a cousin for her DJ, her uncle for her flowers and her aunt (nanny) for her hair. And they were all great! It was truly a family affair!

Ceili and Justin Colletti were married March 7, 2014 at Chateau Country Club. It was a roaring 20s and 30s theme and everyone rocked it! I would have thought I stepped back in time. From Ceili with her hair and makeup and netting to her dad, Mr. Darrell and all the guys and their awesome suits and Justin's shoes! It was a great night!

We started the day at Marriott Courtyard on Julia. You wouldn't believe from the outside, but this hotel has some great architectural features and completely set the stage for a great night! Heather and the lovely ladies from Flawless were on hand to work their magic on the already lovely ladies in Ceili's life. Frenchy NOLA did a live painting while David with Randy Diddly Studios and Jessica with Samarie-Lei captured the day via videography and photography!

A fun way to transport guests - school buses! Ceili used school buses (Mr. Frank or bus number 10 for those from the West Bank!) to get her guests from the hotel to Chateau Country Club. Upon arriving at Chateau, guests headed outside to a lovely courtyard. It was an outside ceremony lit up by twinkle lights all over. 

While at first Ceili may not seem all girlie and frilly and into the wedding planning thing, she surely did accomplish a wedding filled with glam and glitz and fun and family. Congratulations my friend! I hope you and Justin are blessed beyond your years! Hugs!
