Where are you from?
We are both from North Arlington, NJ
How did you first meet?
We knew each other in high school but weren’t close although we had a lot of mutual friends. We reconnected in 2010 at a local bar in our hometown
Where did the proposal happen?
On February 20, 2016, I was doing the Polar Bear Plunge in Seaside Heights. Tommy never jumps in but my friends and I do every year. So many people came that year, all of our friends and family. I just thought that they all wanted to have fun and decided to come down–little did I know what was going on a few hours later. When I came out of the ice cold ocean, Tommy was standing on the beach with a towel that read “will you marry me?” and got down on one knee. I looked around and saw all of our friends and family surrounding us and cheering-it was such a surreal moment. I was freezing cold, took the towel from him to dry off, and of course Said YES!
Why did you choose Westmount?
We had almost settled on another venue when someone told me about the Westmount Country Club. We set up an appointment and from the moment we walked through the doors (before even seeing the room) we knew it was where we wanted our wedding to be. I am a pretty indecisive person and I just knew this was it. The Westmount does a great job of hosting a large number of people in a beautiful room and yet somehow everything still feels intimate which is what I wanted. There are so many wedding venues in NJ and the Westmount does a great job standing out from their elegant décor to their impeccable service. People talk about our cocktail hour and compliment our wedding all the time! We have a wedding to attend at the Westmount in 2018 and can’t wait to be guests!
Everything was memorable. We just had the best time. Once we were at the reception it was time to have fun with our family and friends and we did just that.
Experience with The Bleu Studio?
The Bleu Studio was great! They made me feel so comfortable about everything and after our first meeting, I knew I was in good hands. I was able to call them for a possible timeline, photos, etc. and they had all the answers to put my mind at ease. Aside from being professional–they make it fun! They keep it light and are so funny–because of them I have some really great pictures of our group genuinely laughing. You can tell they truly enjoy their jobs. I would highly recommend them!
