City Lights

As promised here are more photos from this spectacular event.   In typical fashion the incomparable Jen Kroll and her amazing staff captured the essence of the decor beautifully.  The photos are actually from the rehearsal dinner which personally was my favorite.   I absolutely loved the contemporary centerpieces and of course the orchids were PERFECT!  Originally when we had created the rendering the orchids had less blooms however for the event they came in with over 9 blooms per stem and were incredibly long.   I actually cried when I opened the box!  I know it sounds crazy but when you work with perishable product that you have no control over it's so wonderful when everything comes in absolutely PERFECT!  Thank you so much Angie for all your hard work. You're a GEM!!!!

Now let's talk details...I know I've said it a million times but JODI is AMAZING!  From the color palette, to the linen selection, menu and place card stock, soft seating, couture candy bar, matching chargers and broaches this intimate dinner was simply stunning.   I wish I could share them all but there is so many to mention.  I think my two favorite details about the decor were the sexy black candle holders I found and Jodi's broaches that matched the chargers perfectly.    You know Jodi often lets us in on some of the surprises but I think she actually saves a few yummy treats just so we're surprised.    JUST LIKE CHRISTMAS!!!!

My only wish is that I could have been a fly on the wall just so I could see and hear the reactions of all the lucky guests.   I'm sure that this will be an event that people will talk about for years to come thanks to the amazing couple with impeccable taste, the creative genius Jodi Bos and all the vendors who worked countless hours to see this marvelous event come to fruition.   I know I speak for my entire staff when I say we are so blessed to do what we love.  

Nothing great in the world has ever been accomplished without passion.

The whole design on this space, from the room selection, linens, flowers, candles, and lighting... truly show the romance and intimacy all the venders were obviously seeking to achieve... S.T.U.N.N.I.N.G!!!
