Colleen was performing in Philadelphia with the Broadway National tour of ‘Catch Me If You Can’ when Joey decided to take a spontaneous road trip from NYC to see some friends in the show.
“A mutual friend from the show brought Joey to the hotel bar where she introduced us, and we spent the night talking and laughing like we’d known each other for years. The next morning, we connected on Facebook, and the rest is history. Due to the nature of our careers, we spent most of our relationship long-distance, but we are now making up for it in our very small Upper West Side apartment.”
135 guests were in attendance for their late December nuptials at St. John the Evangelist, including an 18 person bridal party.
“It was our goal to make it personal, inclusive, and special for us and our guests. The most important element to me was the ‘Ave Maria’. My friend David Rowen sang it beautifully while my mother and I prayed to the Blessed Mother. I wanted the special bond between us to be featured in our wedding ceremony and it was a beautiful moment that I’ll remember forever.”
The couple chose colors and decor to “create an overall feeling of festivity, romance, and classic elegance. Our overall goal was to enhance the natural beauty of the day, the season, and the people.”
Both and Colleen are actor and singers. They currently reside in New York City.
