From Elegant Occasions... The couple met online and instantly fell in love.  He was from Utah and she was from New York.  The couple chose New York City as the site for their fall nuptials.  They were married at the University Club beneath a grapevine arbor within the Club. They really enjoyed surprising each other the groom made a special video for the bride, she wanted to surprise him with a grooms cake -- for each night.  On the night of rehearsal she had a special white KIT KAT made for him and on the wedding day she had a cake made into the shape of ski mountain for him as well. They loved the little details  that set them apart from other weddings.  In homage to the grooms Irish heritage she had hired Irish dancers to perform during the dinner. Since they loved desserts, we had the most elaborate dessert bar to date, complete with cupcakes, cookies and milk, candy bar complete with all their favorite candies. At the end of the night guests were surprised with Wendy's to go burgers and fries complete with bottles of coke as their departing gift.

The tall centerpieces, which provided immediate visual impact as guests entered the ballroom, consisted of long stemmed white dendrobium orchids combined with creamy French tulips, long stemmed miniature callas, ivory hydrangea and French lilac with green tips emerging from a graceful glass trumpet vase.  The orchid stems are long enough that that they formed an umbrella effect over the table which was light and airy yet opulent and abundant. The lower centerpiece consisted of jumbo white hydrangea, French lilac with green tips, petite miniature callas, freesia with green tips, white godetia, ruffled white sweetpea and Hawaiian orchids.  Flowers were set into a crystal faceted bowl.

An old fashioned photo booth was on display all night so the guests could capture images of themselves as favors for the wedding.
