February 27, 2010 at the Convention Center
Mr. & Mrs. Marshall & Stefanie Watson!
Stefanie Prosak and Marshall Watson had the prettiest wedding and reception – perhaps ever!
The ceremony was at 5:00 at the First Baptist Church on Middle Street in downtown New Bern. The Bridesmaids wore red dresses and groomsmen were in black tux suits. The bride wore a beautiful white princess wedding dress with a 10foot train. Wedding video was shot by Suzanne Lewis and George Wainwright of DJ Professionals and Video. The photography was by a group from Florida and I regret we don’t have their info available at this time. The vows were made and rings exchanged to a packed house of friends and family from Pamlico county and Florida. As the bride and groom hit the back of the church the bells were ringing throughout New Bern! The Downtown trolley was outside waiting on the them to take the bridal party over to the Convention Center, then back for more guests.
Cocktail hour was in the waiting area overlooking the river. Grand introductions were made by DJ Patrick Pake. The room was really incredible! Pam Duvall of Promised hearts in New Bern was the coordinator and designer.
Lighting was provided by DJ Professionals and Video. 15 Color wash lights lit the room up in an extraordinary way. Mostly yellow/gold but 4 white lights were evenly dispersed with one more in white to back-light the cake. What an impact they made and completely changed the room to a unique wedding day. Later in the night when it was dance time, the lights then went in to chase mode and were beating on and off to the beat of the music!
The bride had brought in a special 3 story white linen that served as a backdrop to the head table. DJ professionals provided the signature light in white. It ended up being about 25 feet wide and yellow color wash on each side to set it off.
The Chelsea restaurant served a spectacular 3 course platted dinner. Toasts were made by host and father of the bride, Barry Prosak. He was followed by father of the groom and best man, Ronnie Watson then Matron of Honor, Monica Simon. The bride and groom had a great first dance together to a well rehearsed cha cha type ballroom dance. Great Job!
Stephanie’s side of the family in true polish tradition were eagerly awaiting the Polkas and Dollar dances.
Dance time was packed on the large dance floor with hits from the 70’s to current hip hop and even some beach music. Finally at 11:30 the day was done and the bride and groom departed. What a night!
