“Once upon a time, in a faraway land, a young prince lived in a shining castle. Although he had everything his heart desired, the prince was spoiled, selfish, and unkind. But then, one winter’s night, an old beggar woman came to the castle and offered him a single rose in return for shelter from the bitter cold. Repulsed by her haggard appearance, the prince sneered at the gift and turned the old woman away. But she warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within. And when he dismissed her again, the old woman’s ugliness melted away to reveal a beautiful enchantress. The prince tried to apologize, but it was too late, for she had seen that there was no love in his heart. And as punishment, she transformed him into a hideous beast and placed a powerful spell on the castle and all who lived there. Ashamed of his monstrous form, the beast concealed himself inside his castle, with a magic mirror as his only window to the outside world. The rose she had offered was truly an enchanted rose, which would bloom until his 21st year. If he could learn to love another, and earn her love in return by the time the last petal fell, then the spell would be broken. If not, he would be doomed to remain a beast for all time. As the years passed, he fell into despair and lost all hope. For who could ever learn to love a beast?”

When I found out Nicole was having a Beauty and the Beast inspired wedding I was ecstatic! You need to know, Sean is no beast! Nicole is a beautiful bride, who could definitely be the next Disney princess, and she found her prince in Sean!

Sean and Nicole were married last Friday in Ulster Park, NY at La Mirage Restaurant and Catering where the rain threatened. Thankfully, it held off until we were all done with the ceremony and pictures! Dancing the night away is a bit of an understatement for what happened at the reception!

This was a fun-filled and love enveloped affair where the princess was swept off her feet by her prince.

Enjoy some of the highlights!
