“From start to finish, the day of our wedding exceeded all our expectations. We couldn’t be happier with how all the details turned out and the amazing vendors that helped to make everything possible. My favorite memory from the day was getting to see Max for the first time. I will never forget the feeling I had walking up to him. I was just as nervous then as I was on our first date! We had our first look outside on 5th Avenue and even though there were tons of strangers watching, it felt like we were the only two on the sidewalk. Felix made Max and I feel so comfortable and natural. We were able to focus on each other and truly enjoy the most amazing day surrounded by everyone we love in our favorite city in the world.” – Marisa & Max

“Our wedding day at Beach Point was even more perfect than we ever could have imagined.
I ended up having 3 “first looks”- One was planned with my Dad. He surprised me early on during the wedding planning when he told me he didn’t want to hear about the dress or see it until the day of the wedding. Being able to see his excitement and happiness when he turned around is a memory I will forever have. I think because I also grew up going to Beach Point with my dad and the rest of my family, it was even more special to have a first look there with him. Then there was my first look with Adam; something too hard to describe in words! By the time our first look came, I was so ready to see him and just enjoy our special day together. My third first look ended up being spontaneous, and that’s when I first saw my grandparents. We are especially close and my grandfather will tell anyone he knows that I am still a 3-year-old in his mind and, yet, I am his last grandchild to get married. As soon as we saw each other, we both just started crying and it was truly special.
Another favorite moment for us is when we were able to see many of our friends and family dancing on the dance floor. Music is really important to us, especially Adam, so he looked for a band made up of very talented musicians. We not only loved their song choice, but the talent and energy they brought to every song as well. We were so happy to spend most of the night dancing, surrounded by those we love the most. We can’t wait to see our photos, as we saw our incredible photographers going out of their way to capture every moment of the dance party.
Last, Adam and I were so happy that we ended up having a gorgeous summer-like day for our wedding. At one point during the day, Juan turned to us and said that if it were a beautiful sunset, he would want to take us down by the water to take some photos after the ceremony. While this wasn’t in the original plan, Adam and I agreed, knowing the picture would be totally worth it. We loved how creative & thoughtful our photographers were the whole day; using the spaces around Beach Point as backdrops for beautiful moments that we’ll always treasure.” – Laura & Adam

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.”

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 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.”
