A St. Patrick's Day Wedding at The Mansion at Timber Point in Great River, New York
Andrea Boccard (30 and works in marketing) and Jason Boccard (35 and works in business development) married in an Irish-themed celebration with 200 friends and family members in Great River, New York. The bride and groom first met at a Billy Joel concert, although they say it took them well over a year to admit they wanted to date one another. They eventually became engaged at Heckscher Park in Huntington, New York and knew they wanted to get married on St. Patrick’s Day. “St. Patrick's Day held a special place in our relationship as we celebrated every year for the entire month of March, replete with special outfits, shoes and parties,” they say. Andrea and Jason chose The Mansion at Timber Point as the location for their ceremony and reception because it had everything they were looking for, including a large room for all 200 guests, a huge grand buffet menu and an outdoor bar area in a heated tent for additional space. To go along with their holiday wedding, the couple chose a “rustic Irish chic” theme that incorporated a mix of natural elements, the color green and shamrocks. “We didn't want ‘in your face’ Kelly green and instead opted for a green and gray combination with elements of Irish woven through,” they say.
