I know I promised a party with some simply awesome dancing, and that is sure to come, but first I thought I would share a few from the newlywed’s portraits immediately following the Crane Estate wedding ceremony on the Grand Allee.

Because we had such a beautiful afternoon, we enjoyed the brilliant views of the Castle Hill grounds and ocean.

Playing around with the bridal party.

To kick off the party, Vanessa’s dad gave a great welcome toast on the terrace.

Toasts were followed by dinner in the Great House.

And then a dessert bar that the guests really got into- cupcakes, pies and cookies, oh my!

More shmoozing and fun.

Let the entertainment begin. Eric and Vanessa had only just started to swing dance, in order to prepare this number for their first dance. Oh boy! They knocked it out of the ball park with twirls, jumps, lifts, kicks and more!

The dancing continued into the night- all outside on the terrace.

And good times were had by all.

Honestly, so much fun. Many congrats to Eric, Vanessa and your fabulous families. It was a joy to be a part of your celebration.

And many thanks to the many professionals who helped make the day such a success:
