One fine St. Patrick's Day weekend, Jodi and Patrick's friends set them up on a blind date. The couple who introduced them ended up getting into a huge fight that night, so they had to spend the whole evening together. After that, they exchanged numbers and talked on the phone for a few weeks leading them to set up their formal first date. Jodi and Patrick's whirlwind romance lead them to spend every weekend together for the next three years before moving in together.
Patrick’s personality and dance moves have made Jodi fall head over heels. They always have so much fun together, whether going out or just sitting on the couch. He makes any situation, uncomfortable or not, enjoyable. His honesty and respect towards her are a breath of fresh air. She has never felt so loved, protected and cherished in all her life.
Jodi realized that she wanted to spend the rest of her life with him since the first time he said, “I love you.” That time, they were in the Hoboken train station, ready to go out for the night and were having a good moment when he confessed his feelings.
Patrick proposed on the porch of her beach house. It was a memorable place for them where they had their first date and spent multiple summers. Jodi said yes of course and was looking forward to walking down the aisle and celebrating the occasion with family and friends at the reception.
The Downtown Club by Cescaphe was the perfect venue for their party: a traditional, romantic setting that is effortlessly smart and stylish!
Here are some of my favorites from their Downtown Club wedding day beautifully captured by Ralph Deal Photography.

Let's Talk About Your Wedding!
"Wow where to begin! Ralph was our photographer last year for our October wedding, from the first phone conversation I had with him I knew a made the right choice. I could not have been happier with how my pictures turned out as well as with the experience my husband and I had with Ralph and his entire team. Throughout the entire process Ralph took the time to make sure everything went perfectly even when it didn't. Ralph was professional, attentive, and patient to every email, text, phone call and question, including the ones asking him to resend our photos almost a year post wedding because it slipped my mind to download them. Can't wait to work with him and his team over and over again for year to come!"
