- Wedding: June 2013
My wedding was this past Sunday at the New York Botanical Gardens and I have to give a HUGE shout out to all of my vendors. I can’t believe it but each one of them absolutely wowed me. I need to pass on this love!
Florist – Martin Jobes Design
All I can say is WOW. When I say they killed it, I mean it with my whole heart. My flowers and all of the decor was really beyond anything I imagined. I am a really picky person and I was absolutely floored. It was my vision but BETTER. So SO pleased–really blown away.
Venue – Abigail Kirsch at the New York Botanical Gardens
Abigail Kirsch was amazing every step of the way. Our event coordinator (provided by AK) was AMAZING. They made everything run so smoothly–not one problem during the entire day! Unfortunately, AK is leaving the NYBG space but if you have the opportunity to use them–DO IT. The food was OFF THE CHARTS. Service was spectacular. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Photographer – Charlotte Jenks Lewis
Charlotte is awesome! We loved our engagement pics and I cannot WAIT to see the wedding pics. Char stayed with us the entire day and didn’t leave until the end of the wedding! We also used her for our Super 8 movie and we are so excited to see it. Charlotte is a true professional and she uses mostly film (rather than digital). She was NEVER in our faces with huge lights or following us around. She is so unobtrusive but she is always there to pull her in for a shot if you get some family members together you want a shot of. She was amazing! I’m so excited to see everything!
Band – Kenny Ford Band from Hank Lane Music
Holy MOLY were they good! They NAILED it and played so many of our song requests! SO SO good. They were AMAZING. Best band I’ve ever heard at a wedding and so many people told me that too. I highly recommend Kenny Ford and I LOVED working with Hank Lane. They are extremely professional and it was such a pleasure to work with them!
Rehearsal Dinner – Parlor Steakhouse
Oh my gosh–the food, the atmosphere in the private room, the service–absolutely IMPECCABLE. People are raving about this place after our rehersal. Everyone could not have been more pleased. I was worried because I’d never been there and the parents booked it but the photos online do NOT do the private room justice and I could not believe how good the food was. The owner Thierry was a doll as was the event coordinator MK. Highly highly recommended!
I can’t believe how smooth my entire wedding went and there were so many things I was worried about. I’m happy to answer any questions but had to pass on how wonderful EVERYONE was. I’m a lucky girl in so many ways!
