One of my favorite parts of meeting Shannon and Alex was Alex’s excitement for having balloons for their NYC Lighthouse Wedding. (Insert delightful squealing here… by myself, not Alex)
Shannon and Alex wanted to have a brunch wedding, and what better than a floor to ceiling window lit space at the NYC Lighthouse Wedding space. The Lighthouse is located at Pier 61, which is a part of Chelsea Piers. Whew- that location was a bit of a mouthful. OH! Speaking of mouthfuls, the catering for the NYC lighthouse wedding was delicious and oh so pretty! They had a hors d’oeuvres station setup of perfect little bites. Not to mention, the were very photogenic, and I dig photogenic food.
Ok, now down to the nitty gritty- my Achilles heel… Which was the detail at their NYC Lighthouse wedding which Shannon was most Excited about- HER SHOES! They have wings! GOLDEN WINGS! Sorry guys, it’s just that I couldn’t get enough of them. Shannon chose to have Sophia Webster shoes for her wedding. Oh, and her dress! Shannon chose a light blue/lavender lining of her Maggie Sottero Londyn dress and Alex hunted down a tie to match the lining. It turned out beautiful! It was a super unique wedding dress idea… and one which I hope will become more popular because it turned out lovely. (Especially with those heels!) Now, onto their NYC Lighthouse wedding ceremony.
Shannon’s Mom and Sister’s pro-tip for getting the dress on: loop the buttons on with knitting needles!
This wonderful man is the bagpiper for Alex and Shannon’s Lighthouse ceremony. Michael Hannigan, bagpiper of New Jersey extraordinaire!
Balloon wedding! 🙂
And bags! Alex and his dad handmade their corntoss boards. 🙂 Gotta love a NYC lighthouse wedding.
After their NYC lighthouse wedding, we went on to their wedding after party! Shannon and Alex maximized the merriment by inviting all of their friends and family to join them at their favorite bar in NYC. Highlands is amazing- they are on point with their cocktail knowledge and make a mean Penicillin Cocktail.
Alex and Shannon, your details were amazing! Thank you for having us a part of your big day.
