Today’s wedding spotlight shines brightly on an amazing couple, Ashley and Joseph Donofrio. They were married at the Glen Island Harbor Club on August 19, 2017.
Ashley met Joe right after she graduated high school. Joe worked at a pizzeria in their neighborhood, and Ashley would frequently stop by with her best friend. Joe eventually took the next step and contacted her on Myspace. Yes, you read that correctly…Myspace.
Fast forward. When it came time to pick a venue, Ashley and Joseph both wanted somewhere near the water.
“There is just a sense of tranquility and peacefulness that we both loved. We wanted our guests to be able to enjoy the beautiful outdoor patio at the venue which is why we picked August as our wedding month.”
Joseph and Ashley had a two year engagement, which gave them plenty of time to properly plan for their big day.
“With the help of both our mothers & some really trustworthy, talented vendors I feel like the planning was some what seamless. Joe always asks if we had a wedding planner, and I say, ‘You are looking right at her!’ lol I think as long as you are organized and have a detailed list of what needs to get done, and when- you definitely can plan a wedding on your own!”
Ashley and Joseph were incredibly thankful to share their big day with almost 300 of their closest family and friends. It was the first time they were able to party with all of their loved ones in the same place at the same time. Ashley’s favorite moment of all was seeing Joseph for the first time as she walked down the aisle.
“I had flashbacks to all 10 years we have spent together, how happy he makes me and how in love I am with him. At that moment, everything just felt so perfect.”
