Christin and Alexis both love New York City, but they met nearly 2,000 miles away in Aspen. She was a ski instructor while he was a bartender, and they bonded over their mutual love for adventure and the outdoors. Together, they climbed Mount Kilimanjaro. However, when it came time to pick a location for their wedding, New York was the obvious choice.
The bride and groom had a perfect Fall day for their October 5th wedding. Christin looked nothing short of regal in her Monique Lhuillier gown and Jimmy Choo heels. With her mother by her side, she stole everyone’s breath as she walked down the aisle of the Church of St. Thomas More. After the ceremony, the happy couple took a stroll through Central Park with their bridal party before going to the Loeb Boathouse for their spectacular reception. The tables were beautifully adorned with bright orange and white. The roses, hydrangeas, and orchids were all contained with birch details from Ovando’s. Floating candles gave each table a romantic glow, setting the atmosphere for the entire reception. Levy Lighting transformed the space into a luxurious autumn retreat. The couple did not forget to bring Aspen into the reception, incorporating the great outdoors and woodland charm. Adorable squirrel details, and a wall of birch trees with directional signs to all of the places dear to them tied the theme together. The fantastic four-tier cake from A White Cake had orange leaves and gold decorative touches, mixing the natural with high-end finishes. The Jimmy Vali Band brought the couple’s vision for the wedding to life and made the reception an unforgettable night.
