Ellis Island Fantasy Wedding: Reception!

Posted by on Oct 2, 2009 in Blog | 2 Comments

So, after the ceremony the guests paraded through the park to the ferry landing where an awesome ferry was waiting to shuttle the 380 guests over to Ellis Island.  As it took off we played, what else, New York, New York! The bride’s family was from out of town, so we had the ferry cruise around the Statue of Liberty.  Upon arrival, Jessy and her team from Fleurs rolled out the Pink Carpet (literally). We ordered an extra long hot pink runner from Original Runner Company to welcome guests onto the island.  After they walked through the museum, they headed outside for cocktail hour.

From our part, WHAT A CRAZY DAY!  The amazing team from Evelyn Hill Catering, Fleurs and our staff only had 30 minutes from when the museum closed until cocktail hour began!  I think Jessy had an extra 50 minutes to set up 40 tables!  We chose three different colored linens with contrasting napkins and 3 different table scapes to create some variety in the room. We worked with the catering team to create a multi-course menu that reflected both American and Indian culture.  The lighting team at Bestek did an outstanding job and as you can see, DJ Kucha kept the dancefloor moving. In lieu of toasts, the couples’ friend serendaded them with a song written to the tune of Summer Lovin’.    These are only some of the photos of this just stunning wedding. Thanks again to Robert Wagner for doing such a fabulous job!
