A Brilliant Wedding: Christina & David

Christina & David got a perfect day in June for their wedding! The bride rode in style in a vintage Rolls Royce to the church for their ceremony at St. Francis Xavier. After a heartfelt ceremony, the couple hopped back in the Rolls and headed to their reception at Cipriani 42nd Street. The bride stunned guests when she changed into a gorgeous, trendy white jumpsuit for the party. Guests dined on delicious Italian fare and partied on a dancefloor custom made for the couple.  After his speech, the bride's father sang a beautiful, not to mention impressive, song in honor of his daughter's marriage. At the end of the night, guests left with hand-painted ceramic plates that the bride's Italian mother commissioned just for her daughter's special day. What a beautiful family affair!

Congratulations to Christina & David!

A Brilliant Wedding: Petra & Chris

We were thrilled to plan Chris and Petra's wedding after working with Chris on his beautiful, heartfelt proposal. Not only did we work with this fabulous couple on their proposal, we also planned Petra's brother's wedding (Britten & AJ) last year. There's nothing better than the chance to work with the same family on multiple occasions, we are honored to have had the opportunity to be a part of so many special family moments! The couple was married at the lush Banyan Tree Mayakoba Hotel in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. The ceremony took place under a billowing, draped canopy decorated with a crystal chandelier. After a romantic  reading from Emily Bronte's Jane Eyre the couple said their "I Do's" and the party moved to palapas on the beach for an oceanfront meal. Guests dined on fresh, Mexican-inspired food and danced the night away in the warm breeze from the Caribbean Sea. When the night ended, guests left with funny photobooth pictures and miniature bottles of tequila to keep the party going! Congratulations Petra & Chris!

We are thrilled that Petra & Chris' wedding was chosen to be featured on Carats & Cake! Check out the post here.
