Madelyn and Mark's Wedding- Saturday 9/2/2012 @ The Montauk Club Brooklyn

I first met Madelyn and her mom Holly in late June of last year to discuss how I could possibly become the Month of Coordinator for her September 2012 wedding. At the time of our meeting, she had booked The Montauk Club in Park Slope, as her venue. She picked this venue for many reasons, but the one that truly stood out was that she was born and raised in Park Slope and it meant so much for her to be married there.

Back then, September seemed really far away.

When I woke up on Saturday morning, I was greeted by the sun peering through my windows and the I felt the opposite way...I met Madelyn and her mom over a year ago!

The weather, although a little warmer than it had been (we had gotten away with a relatively cool August) in a while, was perfect for a wedding. Guests arrived from points along the country and the globe to watch Madelyn and Mark say I do!

The intimate ceremony and reception, had its personal touches, none being more evident than having their friend, Olga, officiate the wedding for them.

On behalf of Sue and myself, thank you for allowing us to be apart of it! We wish you a lifetime full of happiness!
