Meredith and Philip - St. Xavier + Gradisca, NYC

Meredith and Philip had a beautiful Catholic ceremony at St. Xavier followed by a very intimate, small dinner for their 50 guests. They wanted a very cozy and DELICIOUS, Italian restaurant in NYC and Gradisca was just that!

The back room of the restaurant is also ideal for rehearsal dinners. The staff and food are A-MAZING and at a great price point with reasonable minimums.

BORROW THIS IDEA: Why buy more paper for place cards if there's already kraft paper on top of the table linens (common of bistros and trattorias particularly). Be resourceful and creative and write the guests' names directly onto the table top next to their setting.

Karen and Jonathan - The Altantis Yacht, New York

Karen and Jonathan, two real estate agents who deal with the buying and selling of land for a living, opted for a wedding on water. They held a beautiful ceremony aboard The Altantis Yacht before setting sail on the Hudson River and East River!

I heart these I heart pictures (wall to be found in Meatpacking District, NYC)

Umbrellas, always a great idea for a sunny day!

Instead of numbers, NYC neighborhoods were used to name tables as a nod to their real estate careers.
