Melissa + Pat: The Reception

With the perfect weather in place and our couple newly married, it was time to show the 120 wedding guests a good time.
Catering was by the fabulous Linwood's under the direction of Sherri Levin.
This couple had the wonderful idea of having individual wedding cakes on each guest table instead of a floral centerpiece. Not only was it a pretty addition to the table, but the guests loved serving themselves cake after dinner.

The table linens were provided by Gala Cloths.

The couple is introduced as Mr. and Mrs.

First dance song to Wild Horses (!).

Funny toast by best man Mike.

Followed by a heart felt toast by Maid of Honor Allison.

The bride and groom sat at a small sweetheart table for dinner. The patio at Gramercy spills right into the gardens.

After dinner, bride dances with her dad to "Forever Young".

Does the cake topper look familiar? It should. It is modeled after the bride and groom!

The cake cutting. Play nice.

Great photograph of the bridal bouquet on the sweetheart table.

Love this shot of the dining patio after dark.

The resident Gramercy cat comes downstairs to see what all the ruckus is about.

The catching of the bouquet. All the single ladies...

Lively dancing with music provided by Paul Lavin of Royal Music Service. He was terrific.

More dancing...

and what's a reception without the imitation of the Rockettes?

Last dance. Sweet.

The sparkler send-off at the front entrance. Sometime I'll tell you about the problems with giving lots of drunk people mini fireworks.

Into the limousine. Congratulations Melissa and Pat!
