Real Wedding: Melissa & Andrew

I am beyond excited to share this post with you. Melissa & Andrew are such a gracious, nice and beautiful couple and I was honored to be their Day Of Wedding Coordinator. Their wedding was quintessentially "them" ~ having traveled to Africa, they aptly held the ceremony and reception on the rooftop of the Hotel Giraffe in Manhattan. Melissa planned such a detailed and beautiful wedding that my day was actually quite easy!

They met with the amazingly talented Cappy Hotchkiss to take photographs prior to the ceremony around Manhattan. I just love these shots:

The incredibly talented Shawn Rabideau was the floral design guru for the day and he was able to incorporate Melissa's Hawaiian heritage into the design, while also capturing their NYC flair. For their ceremony, he draped a large mirror with lush flowers and greens. The bride's processional was to Out of Africa, performed by The Devonshire Players, who were so serene. I loved that Melissa and Andrew chose to face their friends and family during the ceremony, it definitely made their vows and words much more meaningful.

Shawn's design for the dining room was seriously breath taking. We had extensive lighting done by Bentley Meeker to make the room softer and cozier. Each table was strewn with a pin tucked green satin table cloth and adorned with several arrangements varying in color and sizes. The overall affect was one of sophistication, romance and pure beauty.

Overall, a very NYC wedding! Congratulations Newlyweds!
