Happy Anniversary Nicole & Jeff!

Happy One Year Anniversary Nicole & Jeff!

We had so much fun working with this amazing couple. They tied the knot in an intimate ceremony at Hotel Lincoln‘s rooftop restaurant, J. Parker last year, followed by a delicious dinner curated by Perennial’s resident chef, Paul Virant.  Carasco Photography was onsite to capture the day..

Here is a look back at some of the details!

A total of 17 guests attended this meaningful and intimate affair.  We wanted the table to feel warm and inviting.  So we brought in two farm tables and added a glamorous element with tons of candles, glass chargers and a sequin table runner.  The farm tables complimented the rustic vibe of the restaurant, juxtaposed with the the crystal features and sequins, which represented some of Nicole’s personal style.

The gorgeous floral arrangements of blush peonies, roses and hydrangeas were designed by HMR Designs, and accented the pretty sequin runner from Nüage Designs.  All the rentals were from Halls Rentals.

Nicole’s ultra chic 2-piece bridal gown skirt and corset were Monique Lhuillier from Ultimate Bride.  Black and white color-blocked wedding gown, unintentionally appropriate for a Black Friday wedding!
