Wedding Room With A View!

The April 17 wedding of Carrie and Robert was the envy of any Manhattan bride. White cherry blossoms framed the delighted couple as they said their vows under a pergola overlooking the NYC skyline. Almost to perfection, the sun set behind the famous view as the groom lifted his bride to share their first kiss as husband & wife.

Guests were then welcomed to a truly chic cocktail hour complete with a mouth watering raw bar, gourmet hors d’ouerves, hand-rolled sushi and signature blue cocktails. An eccentric guitar accompanied the hum of well wishers for the bride and groom.

As cocktail hour came to a close, the curtains were pulled back to reveal a reception area that triggered an immediate applause. It was certainly a sight to be see! The room was aglow in a cool blue complimented by towering centerpieces of white cherry blossoms and crystals. The room’s abundant windows allowed a stunning view of the luminous NYC skyline. Guests were also free to relax in a white mod lounge complete with white leather couches, blue LED tables and low candlelight. Phenomenal pairing of DJ and lighting tech kept guests on the dance floor as they celebrated between each delectable entrée.

The night wrapped up as the couple revealed an all blue candy bar complete with personalized boxes. Guest filled their goody bags and satisfied their sweet tooth in tribute to a truly happy couple. As the music faded each guest captured one last glance of the beautiful décor, legendary skyline, and a radiating Bride & Groom.

Congratulations Carrie and Robert!

Once again, a huge shout-out to my team for a job well done! I do not know what I would do without you!

2010 AVS Season Kicks Off With A Touch Down!

Spring has sprung, and love is in the air…especially for our beautiful couple Jessica and LJ!

Friday morning dawned on our beautiful bride, ecstatic with jitters to finally marry her charming fiancé. In a moment reminiscent of a modern day Romeo & Juliet, nearly 200 guests sighed as the stunning bride appeared above the gallery on a flowered balcony. The groom beamed as he caught sight of her for the first time. Everyone watched in awe as our beautiful bride elegantly descended the staircase to walk down the aisle lined with yellow Callas and candles.

After heartfelt "I Do's", the guests crossed the venue terrace to enter an exquisite cocktail hour packed with live musicians, mouth-watering hors d’oeuvres, and white-glove service. As the sun set, the doors to the reception opened to reveal a deep purple ballroom complemented with rich yellows, golds, and greens. Jaws dropped to see the beautiful decor: towering floral centerpieces, iridescent linens, gold china, and a cake fit only for a King & Queen. After dinner guests could indulge in a dessert bar and in cigars hand-rolled to order. But no wedding is complete without the infectious love of family, friends, and of course, the bride & groom dancing the night away. Alas, all good things must come to an end, the festivities came to a close with an impromptu rap concert with L J and his NFL buddies.

Congratulations Jessica and L J!

Once again, I thank my super team for a job well done!
