Liberty House Love

The venue: Liberty House in Liberty State Park

Ahhhh, sweet relief. The wedding is said & done, a success story. The couple is happily married & enjoying their honeymoon in the Bahamas. I'm rested & relaxed. With all the flurry of activity & excitement leading up to a wedding, I can't help but love the true bliss that follows.

On Friday, it was my absolute pleasure to coordinate the wedding of Stephanie & Jay at Liberty House in Liberty State Park. Jay had promised his Bride a beautiful day & he delivered: the day was sunny & warm, just gorgeous. Before the ceremony, the Bride, Groom & Bridal Party went to Hoboken for a photo session in the historic train station & the picturesque waterfront. The Bride & Groom were so happy & so beautiful that I wish I could have snapped a few photos to share with you.

At Liberty House, wedding guests were greeted with Prosecco, sparkling water, crudite & soft music as they arrived & mingled on the back patio. Fans & parasols were available for guest to beat the heat & sunshine. The Bride's brothers ushered the guests to their seats in the Garden, offering each a program that coordinated with the wedding invitation. Finally, the Bride walked down the aisle & married her Groom. Happily ever after had begun!

Cocktail hour followed in the Tented Pavilion with delicious food, plentiful drinks & peeling laughter. The Bride & Groom greeted & spoke to each of their wedding guests as they entered the tent. Then the guests were free to eat, drink & be merry. Later, the Bride, Groom & their families stole away for a few photographs with the stunning skyline background. Meanwhile, guests plucked their escort cards (coordinated with the wedding invitation) from the wheat grass & made their way to the Grand Ballroom for the reception.

Ah, the celebratory reception in the Grand Ballroom. Again, I so wish I could've put down my clipboard & cell phone to snap a few photos for you. I'll try to paint the picture for you. Each table featured a navy blue cloth, a wedding menu (coordinated with the wedding invitation of course!) & a cast-iron tree decorated with a few rose blossoms & hanging votives. The floor-to-ceiling windows were lined with votive candles & offered full NYC views. A three-tier cake from Cake Boss was decorated with a fondant, NYC skyline. The fabulous DJ kept the guests dancing all night long. Best of all, the Bride, Groom & their wedding guests filled the room with big smiles & genuine laughter, the best sight for a wedding planner.

Oh what a night! A lot of careful planning & elbow grease went into making this wedding a success. The behind-the-scenes action was quite an adventure! Falling chuppahs, anyone? It takes a great team to make things happen: my assistant Allison, Lee of R.L. Morris Photography, Eric of document this! productions, Vincent of Hurricane Productions, Jennifer of Laura Clare Floral Design & Danielle & staff at Liberty House. Thank you, thank you for all of your efforts & hard work!

We wish Stephanie & Jay love, laughter & happily ever after!
