What happens when a visual display manager for a large department store gets married? She surrounds herself with visually dramatic and aesthetically beautiful items that highlight the most simple of spaces.
An outdoor wedding in early October on the grounds of the brides' childhood home in Freehold was the perfect venue for a most perfect day. I had the pleasure of being the coordinator while Rob DJ'd for the day. As the coordinator I was introduced to a first for me! Transporting the cake from the bakery to the home, a distance of about 10 miles. Driving slow and turning even slower was my mantra through out. The cake was fully assembled and boxed and arrived successfully without issue.
But the fact is that the venue, its decoration and all those attending embodied Mike and Liz and their individual persona. Having helped hang the mum-balls that were personally made by Liz and candles from the trees, alongside my assistant Maggie, set up the ceremony chairs and then dismantled the space and moved the chairs under the tent to the reception, decorated the tree with laminated pictures, stacked the monogrammed pumpkins and ensured that all these fabulous details came together I saw first hand the kind of thought and initiative made in every detail of this wedding. It was beautiful, personal and fabulous. The graphic design of a flower was seen throughout, the invitations, the wish cards, the pumpkin carvings.
The day could not have been more beautiful.
