Amy and Mike grew up together—he's the brother of a close friend of Amy's sister—but didn't start dating until they reconnected four years ago. The ceremony was held at the historic Titusville United Methodist Church. Throughout the day, Amy and Mike rode in a 1931 Cadillac owned and driven by a friend. "It just so happened that he'd chosen a light green paint for the car, which perfectly matched our color scheme," says Amy. "It was spectacular!" The reception was held in the garden pavilion at the Chauncey Conference Center, in Princeton. "I was envisioning a French country feel, and the venue fit what I was looking for," says Amy. Each table was lettered instead of numbered—all together, the letters spelled out the couple's last name. For centerpieces, hydrangeas, roses, and berries filled wooden boxes created by the bride's grandfather and painted by the bride's mother.
