The bride on her special day:

“Our theme for the wedding was deemed “modern luxury”. We worked with event planner Michelle Gainey of Lemiga Events to help to cultivate our vision. We incorporated my love of bling and his love of golf and our honeymoon to Italy to intertwine a story throughout the day. We had bling in every area of the venue, we used golf balls on the escort card table to tie in golf and used cities in the country of Italy instead of table numbers. We treated our guests to a gelato cart at the end of the night to commemorate our travels on the honeymoon to the Amalfi Coast of Italy. We also provided our guests with a lounge feel during the cocktail hour to relax until the reception and served them color coordinated signature cocktails, as well as a special take home gift of an on the spot personalized caricature drawing. Our planner did a excellent job in helping us to iden tify the best vendors in order to pull all the pieces of the puzzle together and make our vision come to life.”
