Dominika & Steven were both working at the same hospital when they meet. Steven, a neurosurgeon at the hospital, was overwhelmed with Dominika's beauty & vibrant personality. He finally worked up the courage to tell her and the rest came so naturally. Dominika has three handsome boys and Steven has two beautiful girls and the seven of them make just a gorgeous family! As Steven got his medical degree from Harvard University they decided that The Harvard Club of NYC would be the perfect place for a reception. The couple got ready nearby at Hotel Sofitel before heading to central park for a few portraits. One of our all time favorite party planners Tammy Cummingham of Sincerely Yours Events was on hand to orchestrate the seamless flow of this exquisite wedding. The bride looked radiant with hair by Lauren Fischer of Bellissima Bride and make-up by Stacey of Fresh Face Forward. For the reception flowers & lighting by Pedestals Floral Decorators and invitations by Sincerely Yours Invitations helped to create Dominika's romantic vintage-inspired wedding come together with ease. Hank Lane Music & Productions added the right touch with a wonderful range of music to carry the crowd through the night.
So here is part two of Kelli & Nino's extravagant crystal & lace adorned reception! We loved working with the lush grounds at The Rockleigh Country Club. Daniel Florals and Events, Inc. really blew us away with their lighting design for the evening! They created such a dramatic, high-end club feel and The Caleps really kept the guests on their toes dancing all night long. The Cake Topper of Staten Island created the lavish four-layer cake adorned with edible flowers. The C'est Papier Inc. invitations were simple and elegant from Sincerely Yours Custom Invitations, and the chocolate menus were good enough to eat!
We were so excited to work with Kelli & Nino after photographing them for their engagement! The gorgeous couple met ten years ago in their freshman year of college. Kelli lovingly recalls, "We started dating that summer and were inseparable ever since." Nino proposed among the beautiful flowers at Montauk Manor. Kelli, who works as an event planner herself, enlisted the help of Sincerely Yours Events to work with her creating a romantic candlelit English garden theme. Kelli went to Kleinfeld's to get her Pnina Tornai dress. It fit like it was made just for her and the Manolo Blahnik cyrstal sandals she picked were the perfect finishing touch. Mancini Giuffre Salon in Staten Island did an exquisite job with hair and make up. The bridesmaids were stunning in Vera Wang originals in a classic caramel with rhinestone accents that she found at Always a Bridesmaid Boutique. Daniel Florals and Events Inc. created lush bouquets with feather accents and warm colors. Nino and the boys looked dashing in Armani Collezioni.
The ceremony moved to Brooklyn at St. Ephrem's Parish.
