TAYLOR AND CARISSA'S WEDDING

October, 2009 in New York

"Our wedding in New York City was a dream, despite the rain! And Wedding Mapper was a great resource to share with our guests. We'd highly recommend using it! If you have a wedding web site, try the "embed" feature to make it look super professional. Here's an example: http://www.idofoundation.org/cgi-bin/mvc.cgi?page=events.html&OccasionID=32377"

"Beautiful location. Bob Van Pelt, the in-house caterer is very helpful and makes delicious food! We did a passed-hors d'oeuvres and station food dinner and it was perfect. The place is so elegant that you need virtually no decorations, and we were able to buy our own alcohol and save a ton of money. The staff they hired was great, I cannot say enough.
