Mayra worked on this awesome wedding for Mary and Jason at The Altman Building this past weekend. Mary and Jason wanted a cocktail party as fun as they were, so after their church ceremony, under some slightly damp skies, their guests headed via shuttles from their uptown church to the Chelsea loft space where, a swanky, Navy blue and white affair awaited them. I was so excited for this great couple and Mayra and I just loved Mary. By the time I stopped by to say hello to the couple, the evening had evolved to include karaoke, N-Sync choreography and an all around great time. (Even their priest made it to the after-party!). Jason is one of the owners of Bourbon Street, so this couple doesn’t know how to have a good time, who would?? Here are some of their great pics by Robert Wagner and flowers by Verde. (Can you peep the GIANT flower balls by the stage in their first dance photo? They were bigger than me! Awesome!)
Congratulations to Mary and Jason and Kudos to Mayra and her AAB team. For people who don’t work with us, Mayra and I split clients. And while we choose to work together on most of our wedding days (because we enjoy the QT) occasionally, it isn’t possible. So, in case you are wondering where I was, Anna (our former bride and now AAB coordinator) and I were working on a smaller wedding downtown where my bride caught on fire. (I put this at the end of the post to see who was paying attention, btw). Literally, just as I was about the open the door to cue the music for her to walk down the aisle, I heard her say “I’m on Fire”. Sadly, she didn’t mean that she was “fine” or feeling particularly funny that day. It appeared that in effort to lean against the wall to catch her breath, her train caught a decorative candle! She was amazingly calm and we put out the flames and pinned up the burn in about…. oh I’d say 30 seconds. I’ve never moved so fast in my entire life. The bride was so excited to be getting married, she wasn’t phased AT ALL. That was a career first. Other than that, the rest of the night moved smoothly and I look forward to sharing photos of their single long table for 103 guests !!!
