What They Did Right: Malda & Greg's Fantasy Rehearsal

Posted by on Oct 12, 2010 in Blog | 6 Comments

I don’t know that there is anything more exciting than when you first start dating someone and they remember little things that you may have said or mentioned a few dates, or months down the line.    It’s that warm and fuzzy moment when you are like “OMG, I can’t believe you remembered that I like that!!”  (Sigh.)  I sometimes take it to far and am practically squeal when my date remembers my favorite cocktail… Anyway, get ready to have that moment oh, about a million disgusting times over when you look at these amazing pictures by Roey Yohai from Malda and Greg’s gorgeous wedding that Always a Bridesmaid worked on this past summer at Locusts on Hudson.  I always say that Mayra can make anything happen for our clients (that’s why she’s the director of Making Things Happen!) and when I saw these photos I was even more in awe of her ability to pull off the craziest stuff and make it look easy and effortless.

Malda and Greg rented this gorgeous estate for the weekend and while the “main event” was happening on Saturday, Friday night they figured it was as good a night as any for a poolside Hoe Down equipped with BBQ, “Branded” Cowboy Hats and bandanas for all the cowboys, checkered linens and string lights and a blue grass band.  However, the real surprise for the guests AND the bride came in the form of a much BIGGER detail!

A few weeks before the big event Greg gave Mayra a call.  It seems that when they first started dating Malda flippantly told Greg that her childhood fantasy was to be whisked away by the guy she loves in a hot air balloon.  Could they make this happen during the wedding weekend and could it be a surprise?  What better way to kick off a completely dreamy wedding weekend than by making a dream come true?  I hope this gets everyone’s brains going about the big and little ways your wedding weekend could get even more dreamy.

After the big surprise, there was eating, dancing, Pinata bashing and more, but I highly doubt that anything could top being whisked away on a gorgeous hot air balloon, do you?
