Alison and Mike's Wedding

This past Saturday I had the pleasure to work with Davi Weddings as a wedding coordinator for James Tramondo. I assisted with the planning of Alison and Mike's big day. Alison resides in LA and she was planning a destination wedding for her and her guests here in the "Big Apple" and what a better theme to choose. Since most of her guests were out of town we welcomed them with fabulous NYC gift bags that included a Time Out Magazine, NYC Subway Map and guide, an I Love NY T shirt, and bag of NY bagel chips. The wedding was filled with weekend of celebration starting with a welcome cocktails on Friday night for all their guests, the wedding reception on Saturday and a lovely picnic brunch in Central Park on Sunday.

As the day began on Sat the crew and I were biting out nails to see if the weather would clear up to have the ceremony and cocktail hour on the terrace of the Ramscale Studio. Luckily the weather Gods were on our side and after an afternoon of pouring rain the clouds started part and the sun was peaking out. We quickly turned everything around to get the terrace ready for the ceremony. The ceremony was lovely with one their closest friend officiating it and another friend singing a solo tribute to them.

The bride and groom had a specific vision for their wedding. They wanted it to reflect a cocktail reception instead of your traditional sit down dinner. We enhanced this by having passed hor's o dors and food for the guests as well as 2 food stations to allow the guests to mingle with each other. The caterer Scoozi Events made an amazing display of coney island pigs in blanket, NY style bite size sliders, mini shrimp tacos and mac n cheese truffle just to name a few. The night was accompanied by a three piece band playing great classic rock tunes. Ending the night the guests feasted on cupcakes from the famous Buttercup Bakery and passed desserts such as personalized creme brulee.
By the end of the night the bride had changed out of her wedding dress and slipped into a white, slick mini, accessorized with red high heels. She looked absolutely stunning.

I had a fabulous time at this wedding and really worked with an amazing team. A well deserved thanks goes to Scoozi Catering and Events, Rocky Scott of the Ramscale Studio and Melanie of Melarosa Flowers.

Wish Tree

I have an upcoming wedding that I am planning which is going to be a rustic chic wedding. Since the wedding will take place upstate we will be incorporating many of surrounding nature elements but in an elegant way.
The bride is very interested in adding very unique touches to her big day. One way we will be mixing it up a bit is using a non traditional wish tree in place of a guest book. The Wish Tree is a Dutch wedding custom where guests are given a piece of paper, either shaped like a leaf or made of card stock. The guests write their wishes to the bride and groom and then hang it on the tree. This creates a gorgeous centerpiece and the tree is placed at the entrance to the reception to wow your guest’s right when they walk in. After the wedding you can create a scrapbook with the wish cards. You could even find pictures of the guests who wrote each one and place it next to their wish
There are many types of Wish Trees - your can purchase metal ones, or create your own using blooming branches from a garden or florist, or even use a live potted plant such as a fichus tree. Gift boxes can be hung from the tree of your choice and your guests can take a box off the tree in exchange for their wishes.
