Kira and Damien
Gino gave this couple their dream wedding at Coney Island. They love the beach and they wanted something by the water. They’re both unemployed so I think they were relying on Gino to give them all that they wished for.
And bam! Once again Gino pulled though. He got them rings, a sunset ceremony on the beach and he incorporated the bride’s son Nicholas (who is adorable by the way) in the ceremony somehow some way. The day of the wedding Gino had Sandy and I set up the Pergola on the beach. Ok, I know we are not the tallest peeps but this set up was a little bit of a challenge! We had to hang shell decorations from the top and Sandy could barely reach it. She was even on a ladder and still struggled with it. And did I mention she was even wearing platform shoes?? It’s so nice to be a half inch taller than my sis. We got it done and at the end it came together beautifully. It was the perfect setting for a sunset beach wedding.
After the ceremony took place we all ended up taking a ride on The Cyclone. I DO NOT do roller coasters at all! I’m scared of heights and riding a rollercoaster wasn’t on my agenda. But I bit the bullet and decided to do it just for Kira, Damien, and Nicholas. Who ever was sitting in front of me I probably made them deaf with all the screaming that came out of my mouth.
Sade and Aaron
We dealt more with the groom than we did with the bride. The bride was always MIA. She was always working so tracking her down was extremely hard. So Gino had Sandy and I meet Aaron at the tuxedo shop to see if we could get some answers for their wedding day. Poor guy, he didn’t know a thing. We asked him about flowers, limousine, hair and makeup etc. and even asked about his vows but again he had no clue. We totally tagged team him and hope we didn’t bombard him with too many questions. But at the end of the day it’s our job to get as many answers as we can so we can plan the perfect wedding.
It was hard enough chasing Sade for some wedding answers so that raised the question, how often do they see each other? It was a sweet gesture for Gino to set up the suite at Hotel Giraffe for a lunch date so they could spend some quality time together. My big question is which lasagna did Aaron like the best?
Their wedding day at Hotel Giraffe was exactly what they wanted, from the location to the set up to soaking in the Manhattan view.
Cheers to Sade and Aaron!
