We just loved Marla. From the second she came in, she was just brimming with love. She managed to even bring out the inner romantic in Mayra, who was her lead planner. She send staffing notes to our AAB team that included a message "I Love this girl, Don't mess anything up!". So, you saw a bit of the behind the scenes, but here are the real pics from Dante Williams Photography (great job!)
One of the great things that Marla did was select a location for photos that meant a lot to her- in this case Grand Central since she would always cut through there on her way to see Matt.
Also, a shot of the bouquet that I made, because frankly, I'm proud of myself :-)
They splurged on the amazing location, but it is so unique that we wanted to emphasize that great aspects of it: in this case, we used this architectural detail to create a Chuppah. And thought that using Wisteria branches, which had sentimental meaning for the bride, against the mirrored wall would be a great way to maximize the floral look for less. The venue has all this amazing antique furniture that you can use, and so we purposed this table for the escort cards and later, the guest book.
The venue comes with table and chair rental. These ivory folding chairs. So the bride opted for these floating candle centerpieces and we chose ivory napkins and some scattered orchids on the table to tie the darker cloth (rental) into the chairs. The up-lighting set the rest of the venue off just perfectly by emphasizing the brick walls!
