A Brilliant Wedding: Heather and Chris

Heather and Chris were such a fun couple to work with and incorporated so many unique and creative ideas into their wedding.  The ceremony was held on the rooftop of Skylight West featuring breathtaking views of the surrounding Manhattan skyline.  The couple wanted the space to feel “happy”, so bright yellow rose petals lined the aisle and whimsical topiaries with lush bouquets of roses served as altar décor.  Pashminas, serving as chair covers, could also be used by guests to keep warm during the ceremony.  As self-proclaimed "foodies", the couple wanted to draw on their love of food and fine dining to create a unique reception for their guests.  Banquettes along with different sized tables were set up the make the space feel like a posh New York restaurant.  The couple even had cell phone chargers set up in the reception so that guests could keep snapping pictures all night long. We were thrilled to have our couple's beautiful wedding featured on Carats & Cake. Check out the post here. Congratulations Heather and Chris!

A Brilliant Wedding: Kimberly and Bill

Kimberly and Bill's down to earth personalities made planning their wedding so much fun. Kimberly and Bill were married in early April on the rooftop of the Bryant Park Grill overlooking the beautiful park. Following with their New York City venue, guests were treated like true New Yorkers with personalized taxi cab escort cards.   You could feel the love between Kimberly and Bill as they started their night off with a first dance to "Just The Way You Are" by Billy Joel.  The rest of the night was spent dancing, eating, drinking and laughing with friends and family. To finish off the night, each guest was given a freshly baked, late night pretzel as they exited the venue.  Congratulations Kimberly and Bill!

A Brilliant Wedding: Morgan and Bud

Morgan and Bud had the perfect day for their beautiful October wedding in New York City.  The day started at the stunning St. Ignatius Loyola church where the couple had a traditional ceremony in front of family and friends.  After the ceremony the newlyweds headed to Central Park where they beamed in their first pictures as man and wife.  From there the party got started at the Pierre Hotel.  As guests entered the room the infectious band played “Suit and Tie” by Justin Timberlake, setting the tone for the all night celebration ahead.  Guest ate, drank and danced all through the night, and Morgan and Bud couldn’t have looked more in love.  Congratulations! And now we are so excited to be planning Morgan’s sisters wedding for the fall of 2014!

A Brilliant Wedding: Diane and Seb

It was a beautiful and traditional wedding at the NY Palace. Diane and Seb who are big traveler's, decided to stay local and tie the knot in New York City. The couple exchanged vows during their elegant church ceremony, followed by a classic New York portrait session in Central Park. Later, the couple pulled up to their reception in a vintage car! They shared their first dance to Shania Twain’s, From this Moment, and from there on it was pure celebration. There were glow sticks for the dance floor, and flip-flops of all sizes so that guests never had to stop dancing. Diane and Seb cut into one of Ron-Ben Israel's scrumptious cake creations, and even had a Macaron Tower cake that everyone wanted a piece of! It was a perfect day for these lovebirds! Congratulations Diane and Seb!

A Brilliant Wedding: Susana and Craig

Susana and Craig wanted to exchange vows in an intimate ceremony amongst family and their closest friends. They said "I do" in a stunning little church, and then went off to take photos around the city.  Instead of having their guests wait around for the reception to start, they were treated to a bus tour of New York City. When everyone arrived to The Standard Hotel for cocktail hour, they were greeted by panoramic views of the The High Line and the NYC skyline, as well as a Jazz trio of Julliard performers. Stepping into The High Line room for dinner, guests took their seats at one of two long banquet tables that were adorned in contemporary succulent arrangements. After a dinner filled with heartfelt speeches, guests took to dancing the night away. When it was time to say goodbye, guests received oh so fun Mast Brother Chocolate favors and they were a total hit! The evening was timeless, just like our wonderful couple! Congratulations, Susana and Craig!
