Kira & Mark: Liberty Warehouse - Brooklyn, NY

Kira & Mark: Liberty Warehouse – Brooklyn, NY

Kira & Mark tell us all about the magic of their wedding day…

“We are still in awe of how magical our wedding day was. It was everything we had dreamed of and more. The amount of love and incredible energy that we felt the entire day was unlike anything we have experienced before. We woke up on Saturday morning to a torrential downpour, but then the skies cleared and made for the most spectacular weather and backdrop that we could have asked for.

Standing under the Chuppah with both families as we exchanged our vows, surrounded by family and friends and the NYC skyline in the back – it was a moment we will never forget. Every detail we had envisioned came to life, and it truly was the best night of our lives. We danced the night away until we could barely stand, and wouldn’t have had it any other way. Brian and his team were truly incredible and somehow didn’t miss a single moment. We had so much fun with the whole Fred Marcus team and we couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out. The photos and videos are memories that we will have forever and we are so thankful to the whole team for making our vision come to life.”

Marianna & Peter: Mandarin Oriental – New York City

We’re thrilled to share a few of our favorite moments from Marianna & Peter’s recent wedding at Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York City. Marianna racalls…
“Standing under our floating chuppah was definitely one of the highlights of our night. It was so special to be surrounded by our family and all of our friends as we exchanged our wedding rings. The entire day was a dream come true. From spending the morning getting ready with all of my beautiful bridesmaids, seeing Peter for the first time with a beautiful view of NYC, our first dance, cutting our wedding cake and just having a blast dancing our guests…it was truly a day we’ll never forget!”

Patti & Eric: Bryant Park Grill - New York City

Patti & Eric: Bryant Park Grill – New York City

Patti & Eric in their own words:

“The wedding day was exactly what we wanted: A garden feel in the concrete jungle. We loved our first look on the library steps, playful photos in Bryant Park during one of their summer festivals. It was fun to have jam band music while taking photos with our families and wedding party. The wedding couldn’t have been better. One of our favorite parts was a mindfulness cue during the Rabbi’s ceremony, it brought everyone in the room together and set the tone for the event–everyone was very present. The rooftop cocktail hour during August twilight was divine, as Patti had her Aperol Spritz and I sipped on my Montauk Summer Ale—we met in Montauk. The al fresco dining under a tree canopy in Manhattan was something I had never experienced. We enjoyed having dinner before the dancing started, where our friends and family could talk and mingle under the NYC skyline. The dancing in the dining room was highly energetic and Luxe from Hank Lane blew it out. Finally, it was Patti’s birthday on August 20th at midnight. While she knew about the sparkler sendoff, she did not know about the New Orleans brass band surprise that would await us so we can have our own second line parade in Manhattan. We will never forget marching down 5th Avenue, with all of our friends following us, taxis and buses honking, strangers taking pictures and joining our festivities. It was a night we will never forget.”

Alison & Kelly: The Pierre Hotel - New York City

Alison & Kelly: The Pierre Hotel – New York City

“Our wedding day was as perfect as we could have imagined. We were lucky enough to have amazing summer weather in April, so taking pictures in the park was a must. We didn’t meet in the most New York way (we met on JSwipe), but as native New Yorkers, we wanted a classic New York wedding, and no one does that better than the iconic Pierre Hotel. They made everything so beautiful and easy from start to finish. But it’s not the venue or the food or even what the Rabbi said during the ceremony that we remember most it’s the immense energy, happiness and love that our family and friends brought to the evening and those are the memories that will last forever.” – Alison & Kelly

Danna & Hal: Glen Oaks Club - Long Island, New York

Danna & Hal: Glen Oaks Club – Long Island, New York

Danna and Hal first met at the University of Delaware in 2003. After speaking briefly and becoming Facebook friends, they lost touch only to reconnect 9 years later. Danna got Hal’s attention by posting a photo of her Dave Matthews summer 2012 tour tickets to Facebook. They ended up meeting at one of those concerts on June 9th, 2012. The stars didn’t align for them however, until December 8th 2012 when there was another Dave Matthews show at Mohegan Sun. Coincidentally they had tickets 5 seats away from each other. They ended up spending hours after the show playing blackjack and enjoying each others company. The rest as they say, is history.
