I have had the opportunity to help many international couples plan and coordinate their weddings in Central Park from abroad. Thanks to Reverend Annie this was an extra special wedding! She introduced me to Joanne and Kevin early on allowing me to take a larger role in the wedding planning.
These stunning hot pick peonies were the perfect pop of color, provided by the always fabulous G! Designs.
The couple’s daughter=darling!
The ceremony was at Wagner’s Cove in Central Park.
The ceremony was performed by the lovely Reverend Annie.
After the ceremony, the small group from Ireland headed to The Central Park Boat House to enjoy- one of my favorite things to do in New York City- a gondola ride. There is only one gondola in New York and it was a gift from Italy. Both gondoliers are charming, but one is a great singer of Italian music which makes the experience extraordinary. It’s a bargain, but I do recommend a reservation, especially if you’re wanting a ride on the weekend or at sunset.
Joanne and Kevin’s guests were treated to amazing views of the city skyline at sunset during cocktail hour on the terrace at Water’s Edge Restaurant in Long Island City. Everyone moved inside for dinner. The wedding cupcakes were provided by Haute So Sweet and their menus and place cards were designed by Ana Dolan.
Thanks to Heartfelt Foto for the gorgeous photos of a truly wonderful wedding.
Congratulations to Joanne and Kevin and thank you for allowing me to have a hand in the festivities.
