Rustic Wedding On The Delaware River

 

I recently had the opportunity to be the wedding planner for a fantastic outdoor event . . . the wedding of John and Jessie Lohmann. This wedding was a culmination of rustic accents, beautiful scenery, and understated romance. Both the ceremony and reception took place in late May on the Delaware River. The bride and groom, both local to the area, share a love for the outdoors. As a result, numerous outdoor themes became key elements in planning the event, which created a very unique overall “feel” to the day. I was inspired by John and Jesse’s love for the river, and I carried that inspiration over to every aspect of my designs.  I completely enjoyed bringing this project to life!  The wedding hosted over 200 guests. Everyone enjoyed the evening . . .sipping cocktails and dancing until the late hours of the night.  A cozy late night bonfire warmed up all the guests that stayed on after the reception ended. It was a beautiful, fun-loving wedding! Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs.

Fall Wedding Styled In Traditional Indian Fashion

Recently I had the pleasure of being invited to my dear friend Brandi’s wedding. This wedding was unique from any ceremony I had been to before. The wedding was a traditional Indian ceremony that took place at the Akbar Resturaunt in Garden City, NY. The menu, design, and ambiance of the venue were inspired by the original Akbar Restaurant which opened in Manhattan, in 1976. As a long time family owed business, Akbar stands true to its roots, and was the perfect location for such an authentic celebration. The bride and groom (Brandi and Sameer), looked elegant in their ceremony attire. Brandi wore a custom coral two-piece crystal embellished Lengha, and the groom wore a multi colored Sherwani. The ceremony was immediately followed by an abundance of music, food and dancing.  A great night was had by all! My husband and I were happy to have experienced this colorful and jovial celebration. Congrats to the new MR. & MRS.!
