It’s always exciting when we get to feature a customer’s story on our blog. Our products allow us to be a part of so many beautiful days and gorgeous photographs, but it’s a real treat when we get to hear the full scoop. Today we want to share a sweet love story, and beautiful wedding details from our customers Michelle and John. They tied the knot on October 14, 2017 and used our Wedding Confetti Cannons for their church exit. We asked Michelle a few questions and are excited to share her story with you all. There is no doubt you’ll gain some inspiration, ideas, and have a few “awwww” moments!

How They Met
John and I met June 2007 at a friend’s sweet sixteen party. He was the dancer working with the DJ company and I was a guest at the party. As soon as we saw each other something instantly clicked. Being a shy 16 year old girl I just glanced over from time to time hoping he would come say hello. After a few hours of locking eyes he came over and asked me for the last dance. After that night we became the greatest friends.
A month later, on the Fourth of July, he kissed me for the first time while watching Win A Date With Tad Hamilton. The rest is history. Our love story continued for the next 8 years, and I could sit here and write about it for hours. We grew up together, helped each other grow, and our love just became stronger. John and I have made beautiful memories, have picked each other up through the tough times and encouraged each other through every obstacle. He is my soulmate, my best friend, and I can’t picture life without him.
We had our wedding at Sacred Hearts St. Stephens in Downtown Brooklyn. This church is very special to me because it is where my parents got married, and as a little girl I always thought it was so beautiful.
There were so many amazing moments in our day, but my absolute favorite was when John and I exchanged our vows.
The confetti canons were shot right after we walked out of church. It felt magical and was the perfect moment right after we officially became husband and wife.
We loved our confetti and got so many beautiful pictures thanks to your company!
We had the reception at Westmount Country Club in New Jersey. While we were shopping around for venues for the reception, it simply felt right at Westmount. It has a modern and classic feel for the traditional wedding we have always wanted.
Our first dance was “Never Stop” by SafetySuit and I danced to “Daddy Dance With Me” by Krystal Keith with my father. Those two dances were beyond special and everything I dreamed they would be.
We had a big bridal party and it was a blast! I wouldn’t have had it any other way.
Most of the members were family and friends that turned into family. The little children are our nieces and nephews, and the junior groomsman is John’s adorable cousin. The two junior bridesmaids are my brother and sister’s daughters, they were ecstatic to be such an important part of our big day.
My beautiful flower girl is my brother’s daughter Alessandra. She was so proud that day and did an amazing job.
My vendors were amazing and wonderful to work with. My dress was designed by Pnina Tornai. It was an absolute dream to wear one of her dresses.
Our flowers were done by Pedastals. They were absolutely stunning.
Lastly, our cake was done by Palermo Bakery.
