Erica and Michael are as sweet as can be and their wedding day was just as great. After our initial meeting at The Brazilian Court, they headed back home to New York and we planned the rest of their wedding over e-mail! Ohhh the power of the Internet!

When the big day arrived, everything fell into place beautifully. Guests had their photos taken by our photography team as they entered the ceremony. Moments later Erica walked down the aisle to Billy Joel’s “She’s got a Way” and guests enjoyed their sweet ceremony as the sun began to set in the North Courtyard.

Shortly thereafter, cocktails began and guests enjoyed the sounds of laughter, acoustic guitar and the trickling courtyard fountain. A mouth-watering dinner was served an hour later and then the ENTIRE room hit the dance floor.

Hours later, guests sauntered back to their hotel suites with their parting favors, a framed copy of their pre-ceremony photos. Everyone left with happy hearts, sore dancing feet and bellies full of Café Boulud’s scrumptious meal and to-die-for gluten free wedding cake.

Many thanks to Erica’s lovely step-mom, Kella, who became more than a mother of the bride, but also our good friend throughout the planning process. Another thanks to Tom Tracy for capturing the beautiful moments from this day!
