COUNTRY CLUB WEDDING, MAPLEWOOD NJ: DAN + GILL

"I taught Gillian many things...and one of those things was to never date your boss... 

So what'd she do? She married the boss!" said Gill's dad during his toast. Dan and Gill (pronounce "Jill") met about 4 years ago while working for GramercyOne in NYC. They quickly became friends and after about a year, they started dating. The combination of getting to know each other while living together in Brooklyn and possibly having to relocate their life to California, started them thinking seriously about the next step of their relationship.

Mast March, Dan popped the question over drinks at The Standard - a swanky NYC bar!  Which makes perfect sense considering Gill's favorite thing about Dan is his confidence - "He can walk into any room and be completely comfortable!" That was beyond evident on their wedding day. Dan's contagious laughter lit up the whole room, along with Gill's beauty! :)

Love that Dan couldn't keep his eyes off Gill, even during prayer! So precious!

These balloons were actually a complete surprise to the couple! Aunt Joan arranged them so the children could feel like they were a part of the wedding...and I'm so glad she did because I LOVE BALLOONS! I'm like a 5 year old!

Congratulations Dan and Gill! What an amazing day! :)
