I am thrilled to share Krystyna and John’s fairytale wedding! Krystyna and John are so wonderful together and their love was evident throughout their entire wedding day. Their luxurious Ryland Inn Grand Ballroom Wedding was a moment the couple had been waiting for, as they had to postpone their wedding day. While the pandemic affected many couples planning their wedding day during 2020, it was heartbreaking for Krystyna and John. Thankfully the amazing staff at The Ryland Inn wedding planner, Michelle Ross, helped them coordinate everything about their wedding. They assisted the couple in bringing to life their original vision for their wedding day and they were able to keep all their original vendors!
Krystyna and John had a beautiful, unique wedding day vision that I adored. The grand ballroom at Ryland Inn located in Whitehouse Station, New Jersey is already a stunning and elegant event space. However, the couple wanted an “Amalfi Coast” garden theme wedding, which is also a play on their last name, Amalfe. The Amalfi Coast is a stunning coastline located in Italy. The area is known for growing lemons for their delicious limoncello liqueur. This coastal area also features beautiful European gardens. To incorporate this, the couple used a lemon design to line the inside of their wedding envelopes. Fresh lemons were strategically placed for their flat lay designs as well. Pops of lemon yellow hued flowers were woven into her garden inspired wedding bouquet and green leafs and lemons decorated the center of tables at the reception.

The garden theme was apparent in the lovely display of flowers throughout their wedding day. Krystyna commented that she has always loved over-the-top florals and wanted her wedding and reception to be something people would remember. She rented faux cherry blossom trees, gold candelabras and gold bowls of lemons for the wedding reception table centerpieces. The result was STUNNING! Gorgeous florals also decorated the chandeliers inside the grand ballroom of The Ryland Inn. Krystyna also had flowers woven into her hair as a nod to Krystyna’s love for “Cinderella.” The couple intertwined further fairytale elements into their wedding by having horses greet their guests as they arrived! It was truly magical!
Krystyna and John’s careful attention to detail completely paid off. The stunning event space was transformed into an elegant fairytale wedding. While I wish they didn’t have to postpone their original wedding day, it all turned out beautifully. Krystyna and John’s wedding was truly a day to remember, and I am so thankful to have been a part of it!
Congratulations to Krystyna and John on their magnificently beautiful wedding at the Grand Ballroom at The Ryland Inn!
