Makiko and David's Wedding

The wedding was a blast! NY weddings can be among the most expensive in the country, but the combination of the venue, caterer, and smart choices allowed us to host 100 guests for way below the average for the city. The charm of the location, the great weather, very professional service, and excellent food made it a day to remember not just for us, but all of our guests. We were very touched at how many of our friends and family expressed that this was one of the best weddings they had ever been to. Too bad (or thankfully!) we can't do it again!

Wedding Day Beauty

She did a fantastic job of enhancing Makiko's natural beauty, so well that you hardly realized she had makeup on. And her hair looked stunning.

Worked very hard to capture all the moments. The pics were fantastic!

Couldn't have asked for a more beautiful venue. The fact that the entire day could take place there and they had an exclusive arrangement with the caterer was a big bonus. Unfortunately they gave us a last minute scare with an art installation in our rooms! For that, and the fact that they are not renewing their contract with Showstoppers (and apparently no longer having weddings there) they lose two stars. Otherwise we loved it.

Standard sort of stuff. The person helping us got visibly tired towards the end of our visit, though.

Attentive, and did a nice job. Only complaints were that he wanted to change the order of things at the reception (during the reception!) and that his online catalog was missing a lot of 80's stuff (either it wasn't up to date, or he needs to fill in those gaps!)

The absolute best source of wine and liquor in the city. Seriously, you won't be able to beat it unless your family owns a vineyard.

Simply can't beat this warehouse for selection and prices (for beer and soda only)

They did a fine job, but spilled water on the master before printing. Fortunately they discounted the work w/o me asking.
