[Wedding] Jillian & Santo – Eagle Oaks Country Club in Farmingdale, NJ

[smartslider3 slider=”eagle-oaks-country-club-wedding-jillian-santo”]

“There’s someone I want to introduce [to you]!”

When you’re single and amazing (and pretty much everyone knows it), this is your life – up until the moment you finally place framed photo of your honeybuns at your work place, or change your phone’s home screen to a photo of a magnificent creature who takes up all of your free time. But naturally you don’t mind, because you’re just obsessed. This magnificent creature makes you laugh, has a quirky personality, and most of all, embodies companionship, unconditional love and loyalty. And if we were to fast-forward this story several years, the magnificent creature I’m referring to would be “Bunk”, only the most adorable Cavalier King Charles that Central Jersey has ever seen! But nevertheless, this is Jillian & Santos’ origin story, two equally magnificent creatures who were simply one introduction away from their happily ever afters. But little did they know, that introduction was simply biding its time at Jillian’s workplace…

…in the form of Santo’s mom.

Dun, dun, duunnnnn!!!

This past summer, we had the opportunity to document this long awaited wedding day between Jillian & Santos at the Eagle Oaks Golf & Country Club. They, along with their families & friends, Bunk, and a sweeeeet Pink Cadillac, threw one of the most amazing wedding celebrations that Central Jersey has ever seen. And wait…did the saxophonist just belt out Careless Whisper…to techno beats? Heck yeah he did!

Goes to show, folks should listen to their moms more often :).
