Last week, I promised to blog about Paola and Sanjay’s Day 2 of their wedding weekend, and I am finally delivering!! Day 2 consisted of their Catholic ceremony at Our Lady of Mount Lebanon Church, followed by a fantabulous reception at the Olympic Collection. By the time Paola hired me, she had decided on two things in terms of her wedding day…..the color scheme would be hot pink/fuschia and brown, and the theme would be GLAM. She is truly a girly girl and wanted everything to look sparkly and pretty, and we delivered!! Some of my fave teasers by their amazing photog, Yoshi Morimoto are below:
A shot of Paola in her uber-romantic La Sposa gown and matching veil:
I LOVE when brides wear fun shoes……..such an ideal place for a hidden pop of color!
Paola’s hot pink peony bridal bouquet, wrapped in a blingy rhinestone belt……definitely the perfect fit for a glam bride!
The funniest moment of the day…..Paola and Sanjay were really cracking up when she realized she was trying to cram the ring onto Sanjay’s right hand!!
A shot of the dramatic ballroom setup that Paola had spent over a year putting together. Upgraded linens, pink uplighting, white dance floor with custom colored gobo….the works! Her sweetheart table was draped in a gorgeously textured beige linen, flanked by two over-the-top crystal trees and a dazzling backdrop to boot! All decor, linens, florals and lighting, provided by Flowers on Mars.
Paola’s tall centerpieces….a beautiful combination of roses and hydrangea, with a little bit of bling inside the vase to dress it all up!
A shot of her glamorous cake……each tier was decorated with a rhinestone belt, and we added a custom crystal cake topper on top, made by yours truly, to add even more bling!
And I’ll close with a picture that captured a truly sweet moment:

Paola and Sanjay – I can honestly say you guys were AMAZING clients to work with!! I would get home from our meetings and realize that 3 hours had flown by, because chatting with you two was always like sitting down with a couple of friends. You both are such fun, hilarious souls to be around, and I truly feel honored that I got to be a part of your wedding day. It was so gorgeous and full of love…..it was truly touching to see how your friends and family love you so dearly, and how you two love each other as well. I hope you had the best time in St. Lucia, and don’t be strangers, keep in touch!!!
