Mary & Tim’s Wedding
April 2016

Love happens.
After meeting for the first time, and feeling an instant connection, Mary & Tim’s love for each other blossomed over the years. Here’s their story!Nassau Inn Wedding

“Tim and I have an interesting story- how much time do you have!” Mary says. “Tim is originally from Sydney, Australia and I’m from Berkeley Heights, New Jersey. We met in 2008 whilst I was traveling in Sydney for the summer before I started college. We instantly connected and became friends- and every year after that Tim came to New Jersey for various amounts of time: traveling, holidays, semester abroad, and then lastly in 2014 for a year when he got a job as the youth minister for St. David the King Catholic Church in Princeton. During that time was when we fell in love with Princeton. It’s charming and beautiful; every season in Princeton is magical. Walking around the town was our favourite thing to do. We especially loved the fall foliage and walking through the town looking at all the trees change colors, but when we saw the cherry blossom trees in spring, we knew we needed to get married in Princeton – so we chose the 15th of April, and the Nassau Inn was the perfect fit!”

“Mary and Tim are an adorable, laughable and lovable couple,” says Jaime Wolf, Catering Sales Manager. “They’re smiley, outgoing and so in love! It was a lot of fun being around them!”

“We loved every second of our wedding at the Nassau Inn. Everything was spectacular and made our day so special in a way we couldn’t have even imagined!” Mary says.

Nicole & Christine’s Wedding
August 22nd, 2015

Nicole and Christine are sweethearts who go a long way back. “We definitely don’t have a typical love story,” Nicole said. “We attended the same small grade school and high school, and had a lot of mutual friends and activities during that time, so we were in each other’s lives for almost 20 years before we became a couple.

We were both cast in an alumni summer theater production at our old high school. We were friendly with each other, but not quite friends until we volunteered to work on the costume committee together. Several costuming weekends (and a few drinks) later, we were inseparable. We quickly realized we both wanted our relationship to turn into something more. Christine proposed during a trip to Disney World, and shortly after, we decided to hold our wedding at the beautiful Nassau Inn.

Aside from being an overall wonderful town, Princeton has always been a special place for us. We both grew up taking day trips to the shops and restaurants in Palmer Square with our respective families, and since we got together, we’ve loved coming down here for date nights. Nassau Inn was the first wedding venue we toured, and as soon as we stepped inside and met with Melissa, we knew we didn’t have to look any further.

Our friends and family still tell us what a great time they had at our wedding. Thank you for helping us make our big day so special!”

Not only are Nicole and Christine an extremely sweet and vibrant couple, but they are also an inspiration to Melissa Dill, our Sales & Catering Manager. “Nicole and Christine are great people, and made working here so wonderful! They’re the reason why I’m here,” said Melissa.

10 Things We Learned at the Princeton Wedding Showcase

1. White weddings never go out of style

2. Overcast weather is actually the best light for photos!

3. Rustic is not synonymous with barn wedding. You can have the rustic look with the elegance and convenience of a ball room.

4. No matter what your fashion sense, all gowns blend seamlessly with the versatile settings of the Inn.

5. Having a wedding downtown means having all the shopping and services you could possibly need at your finger-tips. On your wedding day the salon will come to you, no need to go anywhere!

6. Stains in your gown can set rather quickly. Plan ahead and designate a person to take your gown to be preserved while you are on your honeymoon. Our seamstress also preserves gowns!

7. Re-purposed wine barrels, crates, suitcases and more make for great wedding props and décor.

8. You can rent anything you need to bring your vision to life. From sequin table cloths to vintage furniture, it’s all just a call away.

9. Every man should own at least one good suit. What better keepsake of your special day than a custom tailored suit instead of a tuxedo!

7 Simple Ways to Nail Your Winter Makeup

This is a guest post by Magda’s Designs Inc.

Blog 12.21.15.1

People like to hibernate in the winter. It’s cold out, it gets darker earlier; it’s the time of year one would rather snuggle up on the couch and watch a movie. Ironically, however, winter also happens to be a season filled with holiday parties, family get togethers, weddings, and a lot of photos for proof of getting together. These photos will be plastered on Facebook, Instagram and basically anywhere else photos can be uploaded these days; a scary thought for someone who tends to dislike how they look in pictures.
Here’s a tip…makeup can make all the difference.

Because the Nassau Inn will host of many of these wondrous affairs, we wanted to give their guests and brides a few tips on how to nail their makeup and look great in every photo snapped in their direction.

1. First things first, the same shade of lipstick, eye shadow, etc., does not look the same all year round. Just because you like the way a certain color looks in the summer, does not mean it will flatter you come winter. Check out How is the Sunlight Affecting Your Makeup?.

2. If you read the above article, you now understand that winter has a lot of that not-so-flattering blue light, which brings more attentions to things you’d like to cover up, i.e. red spots, dark under-eye circles. Winter is the time of year to pull out highlighters and light-reflective foundations.

3. Blue light reflects colors with blue tones, so think silver, gray, red, berry shades, etc. when it comes to your eyeshadow.

4. It’s natural to lose your tan in the summer, so don’t over-do it with the bronzer. To add some color to your face, use some blush.

5. Go for the dark lip. Just do it.

6. Use waterproof mascara. It’s great for any occasion, especially if there’s any snow in the forecast.

7. Now that you know the tips to great winter makeup, don’t forget that before the makeup comes the foundation. If your skin is dry and cracked, the makeup won’t look good, regardless of color. Check out 5 Easy Ways to Keep Your Skin Hydrated This Winter.
