Saturday I went to my 2nd cousins’ Stephanie wedding to her soul mate Zach
It was a beautiful wedding
Beaming parents Sue and Anthony Riccardi
Zach and Stephanie Mallgrave
One of the coolest bride’s bouquets ever. Stephanie and my Aunt Angie, her grandmother, began collecting antique pins and brooches for the past 2 years or so. Grandmom Riccardi (my mom’s sister) help assemble it before she died last December. As past past president of Delaware Valley Antiques Association, Aunt Angie knew vintage.
Stephanie incorporated lockets filled with photos her her grandparents on both sides, into her bouquet.

The gift table in the cocktail area. Who knew, but you should always move your gift table into your reception room because sadly some bum will try and lift your gift cards and run down the street. Thankfully the groomsman were able to run faster than the crooks and recovered the gifts.

Introducing Stephanie and Zach Mallgrave
Dad and daughter dance
all my first cousins from my mom’s side, except my sister Crista who didn’t fly in because the National Weather Service cares about ratings more than people as they predicted Joaquin hitting NJ 5 days out, with barely one model showing it hitting NJ. Zoink.
