Marisa on Meritza & Kyle; Abigail & David

Meritza and Kyle

A fashion show wedding ceremony on a runway and Kotko designing Meritza’s wedding dress… All mind blowing.

Gino, Sandy and I paid a visit to Meritza’s studio where she teaches pole dancing. Yes, we showed up wearing the wrong gear. We were dressed more for a yoga class. The first thing she asked us was “where are your shorts?” It was comical to see all of us try to “climb the pole.” I think I found my new career. Then we finally got down to business as we were “rolling it out.”

Wedding day was chaotic. The scene was fast paced, filled with high energy and you could feel the adrenaline in that show room. There was a little bit of drama. The groom’s tuxedo hadn’t arrived yet. There I was running in my Manolos on the cobblestone streets of NYC trying to track it down. We finally did and after that it was show time. Mertiza and Kyle got the wedding of a lifetime. And thank you Kotko for a ‘one of a kind’ stunning dress!

Abigail and David

This couple had never been to the big apple before let alone on an airplane. So Sandy and I met the couple at the airport so we could make sure they got their luggage and see them off in a taxi.

As soon as I met them I knew they were the perfect couple. Abigail was covered with loads of tattoos on her neck and chest. She certainly took major pride of her tattoos. All of her body art had a true meaning behind it and that’s what made it beautiful.

Gino took the Bride and Groom plus the entire family on a NYC bus tour since none of them had visited the city before. Gino went back to his roots and was their personal tour guide for the day. Go Gino! The big finale of the trip was surprising them with their iconic wedding location, Grand Central Station.

It was a busy day and unfortunately I was unable to make their ceremony because I had another wedding. Having watched the episode on TV, I was so impressed and floored at how beautiful their wedding turned out to be. Gosh, I only can imagine how she felt walking through Grand Central Station knowing all eyes were on her. It’s a day they both will never forget and I’m sure NYC will be expecting many more visits from these two!
