A Classic Yellow Wedding at South Gate Manor in Freehold, New Jersey
Even though Kelly (30 and a teacher) and Vincent (31 and retail manager) went to high school together, they didn’t meet until a run-in at the gym. “One evening, at Retro Fitness, I was on an elliptical machine working out. As fate would have it, Vinny walked passed and began working out near me. I recognized him, but couldn't figure out why I knew his handsome face. About a week later, the ever-so-famous, Facebook, suggested I add Vincent Castellano as a friend. I couldn't believe that right there in front of me was that handsome guy from the gym. I realized it was from high school that I recognized him, so I decided to add him. After a few months of flirty comments back and forth, Vinny messaged me to ask me out. Our first date took place at Solo Bella on January 10, 2011,” says Kelly. Kelly and Vincent chose South Gate Manor in Freehold, New Jersey for their venue. “It happened to be the first venue we saw and we fell in love! We did see a few others to compare, but we knew that would be the place we would choose! Not only was it beautiful, but it was a perfect location in our hometown,” says Kelly. For the wedding colors they chose a yellow and gray color palette. Calla lilies made the perfect choice for the floral decor. Many of the details were handmade or designed by friends and family, including the flower girl and ring bearer props.
