College sweethearts Megan Boyle (26 and a teacher) and William Winters (26 and an ADP sales executive) had a glamorous wedding at the Estate at Florentine Gardens in River Vale, New Jersey. Their winter wedding, which matched Billy's last name, was beautifully captured by Erin Nicastro Photography. Megan and Billy chose an elegant color palette of white, champagne and gold for their ballroom event. "I wasn't too crazy about bright pops of color, and I wanted all-white flowers," Megan says. In addition to white floral centerpieces, the reception was also decorated with vases of floating candles. The hall was illuminated with crystal chandeliers and purple uplighting. Megan and Billy's wedding party dressed stylishly, with the bridesmaids in strapless, floor-length dresses in champagne and Billy and his groomsmen in fitted tuxedos. The bride herself wore a mermaid-style wedding dress with a ruffled skirt, which she paired with a silver headband and chapel veil for the ceremony. Megan says one of her favorite moments from her wedding day was the first look. "Billy and I are family people," she says. "We decided we wanted our loved ones there to share this moment with us. The feeling of walking up to meet everyone was something I will never be able to put into words."

Billy gave Megan a 3.5 carat round-cut diamond ring with a halo and an encrusted band.
