The Wedding Salon, NYC

It was a great time together with Jonnaysa, Lindsey, Jill, Linda, Leslie, Kris, Joel and Mandy as we walked around NYC, had lunch together at Sax Fifth Avenue, relaxing in the lounge at the Roosevelt Hotel while waiting for the event to open.
Just as we came out of Penn Station and walked toward Rockefeller Center, we spot Mario Lopez taping for 'Extra'. Yep, we were that close. Lindsey said " his dimples are so deep he probably has to clean them with a Q-tip!

As we enter the over-crowded event, we are greeted by a 'tree-thing' that didn't talk, but handed us a little rolled up paper with a word of wisdom. Kinda creepy for a wedding, don't you think? Amy would have really not liked that at all!

Our next stop was to meet Sylvia Weinstock and to have a taste of her famous cake.
Of course the most interesting thing to me was the floral designs.
I felt somewhat disappointed that there weren't more.

A beautiful Asian table display.
This one looks like a giant floral ice cream come.

This one below is gigantic!
This was a canopy frame that was covered in 11oo Standard Callas! It was up-lit and breath-takingly gorgeous. Only in NYC!
As we were leaving another human plant -thing to bid us farewell. Then we all crashed on the steps of the hotel to try to lighten the 'goodie' bags they gave us for the long trip home. We look a little pooped- because we are. A little dinner at the Irish Pub and we're headed back to the train station.

Such a good time with some wonderful wedding friends. Thanks to Jill, Leslie and Lindsey for sharing your pictures with me. Till next field trip......happy wedding season friends!

Last Winter Wedding of the Season

It was a sunny, but freezing cold day for this couple being married at Sacred Heart Church.
The bride carried Latin Lady Roses, with varigated Pittosporum and a collar of Ostrich feathers, all wrapped up cozy in a woven satin ribbon sleeve with pearls and crystals.

Bridesmaids wore beautiful red dresses and carried Virginia Roses with a collar of Million Star Gyp and varigated Pittosporum.

The Groom's mother carried a tiny bouquet of Virginia Roses and White Cymbidium Orchids.
The sweet little flower girl had a white bear with a collar of roses and baby's breath. I have limited pictures this time........
Check out Leslie Gilbert's blog for the post of the wedding and reception at Lancaster Country Club. Be sure and look for Rosie's amazingly beautiful cake. It was beyond gorgeous, and she gave the leftover Buttercream Frosting to Amy. Boy did that make her day...little Hudson's too! Thanks Rosie!!
Can't wait to see and taste what you do for Jessie and Doug's wedding!
Now we have a bit of a break as we meet with couples for the spring, summer and fall seasons.
A little trip to NYC for a big bridal event, the Best of Weddings bridal event at the new Marriott, plus we will be doing a large fundraiser event in May for Brethren Village.
Is it really going to be 50 degrees this weekend? I'll believe it when I see it. Brrrrrrrrr
