The Reception

Photography: Kate Murphy / Food & Venue: The Carlyle Restaurant / Flowers by: Amy Merrick  / Cake: Sylvia Weinstock / Dress & Veil: Katie Ermilio / Bespoke Tuxedo:Ermilio Clothiers / Groom’s Bow Tie: Ralph Lauren / Bridal Jewelry: De Beers Swan Lake

A glowing banquet table in a private room overflowing with bouquets of flowers and classic love songs. With slow and relaxed courses we had the ability to live in the moment, to be present with our loved ones and toast to this first meal as Husband & Wife

The wedding cake had the french lace of my dress recreated in the delicate buttercream icing dancing up the sides as a waterfall of my favorite flowers wrapped gracefully down the front. Yeah, yeah, but what’s on the inside? A tier of vanilla & strawberry followed by a tier of chocolate & raspberry. Remember this?

As Time Goes By

It’s still the same old story A fight for love and glory A case of do or die The world will always welcome lovers As time goes by…

High atop the Carlyle Hotel on Mahattan’s UES with sweeping views overlooking Central Park I married my creative partner and best friend Kevin Burg in an intimate ceremony on a perfect summer evening. The pianist filled the room with old jazz standards and so gracefully played As Time Goes By with our first kiss as husband and wife. The sounds of champagne popping and the sweet smell of summer flowers still fill my memory like it was yesterday…

The blessing:

Now you will feel no rain,
for each of you will be shelter for the other.
Now you will feel no cold,
for each of you will be warmth to the other.
Now there will be no loneliness,
for each of you will be companion to the other.
Now you are two persons,
but there is only one life before you.
May beauty surround you both in the journey ahead
and through all the years.
May happiness be your companion,
and your days together be good and long upon the earth.

Natural Beauty~

With each curve and drip of color it is unimaginable that anything could be more beautiful than what is created in nature. Through the richness of red and with the softness of pink…  these remind me that is there is beauty in the delicacy of life.
