Tiffany and Matthew's Intimate Engagement Dinner

There is nothing more romantic and memorable then celebrating your engagement with a small group of people. The Groom proposed to the Bride to be on her birthday trip in South Africa. The two will be wed next year with a beautiful Caribbean backdrop on the Bride's birthday. We used soft decor to maintain an environment conducive to mingling and conversation. Floating candle centerpieces coupled with delicious Indian Cuisine made the night a huge success. Next up, Engagement brunch in January!

Melissa and Sean Friday Wedding

Winter Wonderland says it all! The Inn at New Hyde Park provided the perfect canvas to bring this lovely wedding together. The weather ended up being perfect and all the guests who attended had a wonderful time. Blue uplighting, navy runners and chair sashes along with candle centerpieces brought the theme to life. The staff at The Inn was incredibly accommodating, professional and a joy to work with.

We look forward to working here again. The Bride and Groom spent the night at The Inn's bed and breakfast before heading to their honeymoon. They were housed in the delightful Bridal Suite while their guests enjoyed the cocktail hour in Tuscany Hall. Our favorite moment of the evening was when the Bride and Groom were brought into the Gable Ballroom for a first look of the room and the bride's first words were "WOW!". That is the whole reason we do what we do; the hopes of exceeding expectations.

Jecenia "Jessy" and Jorge "Flaco" Wedding

We went all out for this Great Gatsby Themed Affair. Nestled in the lower level of The Armenian Diocese of NY- we transformed this space and took a trip back in time. We married (pun intended) their Mexican traditions that mean so much to them with their theme and it was a movie! Large ostrich feather centerpieces were placed on each table atop mirrored bases with custom made gold vases with sequin runners. It was a fantastic evening!

David and Danielle Alvarez Wedding

Industrial Rustic Chic at it's finest- this was a really beautifully crafted event from beginning to end. The Bride was very hands-on and had a very particular design in mind for their wedding that we helped execute. Most of the decor was DIY and it came together better than we could have ever imagined! The Dumbo Loft with its beautiful views of the Brooklyn Bridge and cobblestoned streets was the perfect accompaniment for this event.  David and Danielle were a pleasure to work with; no longer just clients but we have become friends!
