Happy New Year!!!-Year in Review

In our innaugural first year at The Blissful Bride Weddings & Events, we worked with 3 different styles of weddings.
Our first wedding as BBW&E was of Gayle and Aakif. It was the perfect intimate affair catered to out of town guests, that not only celebrated the high school sweethearts but the fabulous New York City as well.  A three act event that began with the ceremony at Central Park's Conservatory Gardens, and carried to the Villages own Havana Alma de Cuba and ended on the Yacht, Manhattan. The weather couldn't have been more perfect, the setting earthy and fun.
Our second wedding, Hazel and Kenny, had a more traditional feel that had a church ceremony followed by a candlelit reception in Greenpoint. The setting a bit more formal than the last, and about 90 guests who munched on a three course dinner followed by a mini Vienese Table and Wedding Cake.
The final wedding of our innaugural year, Samantha and Barry was in my favorite month (call me bias because I'm an October Bride myself) and was modeled a little like my own, with the exception being vibrant orchids, purple floralytes immersed in waterbeads. The ceremony took place in the outdoor area at Nicotra's Ballroom in Staten Island and followed to the Tea Garden Room which contained glass walls that overlooked the night sky and illuminated the room as the night went on. The guests partied at the reception to their hearts content with wonderful music. It was also my first time as emcee.
I want to thank my couples for letting me be apart of their special day and we look forward to 2011 and our new brides.
