Family wedding in NYC!

Tuesday, May 4, 2010

We just spent the most beautiful weekend in NYC at my nephews wedding.  It was held at a quaint Restaurant, Freeman's Sportsman Club  which was at one time a Sportsman's club at the turn of the century.  While I am not big on taxidermy, all that is in the club are historic and looks more like a museum.  I must say that it was a beautiful, trendy destination for a wedding and we had so much fun! 
The flowers and decorations were gorgeous, real poppies and artichokes were put on the mantle....and my sister and I created rose and berry arrangements in birch containers wrapped with twine that we made.  The birch vases added to the natural theme in the restaurant.

The back bar was used to prep flowers for the wedding...

The original bar and cabinetry were amazing, just imagine the stories and camaraderie there in the 1800's!
The birch vases that we created looked so pretty on the tables!
The artichoke dip was to die for!

And of course you can't forget the delish  Magnolia cupcakes from the world famous Magnolia Bakery on Bleeker Street!
The bride loved her bouquet of ranuncula's that I created for her!
(We put it in a vase on the table after the ceremony)
The ceremony took place in the Tavern Room in front of the fireplace...
(I didn't want to put pictures of the ceremony yet because I didn't get permission!)
What a wonderful, fun, romantic day we had with our beloved family and friends!
If you are ever in NYC, make sure to check out Freemans for a wonderful dinner and fun experience!
