These dashing grooms enlisted our help at Kate Edmonds Events to throw a magical moveable feast style reception for their beloved friends and family. The Foundry was the perfect venue for this couple who holds Long Island City near to their hearts, and they were even able to take pictures along the beautiful waterfront and near the Pepsi-Cola sign earlier in the day. The ceremony, held in the gorgeous greenhouse, included their two precious pups as the ring bearers! Guests enjoyed an outdoor cocktail hour complete with a rose bar and delicious passed hors d'oeuvres. Illustrators roamed the party sketching the guests laughing, toasting, and dancing the night away.
I just cant say enough good things about Kate and Jess at Kate Edmonds Events! We interviewed a few planners before selecting KEE. We're both very busy young professionals, and it was important for us to select someone with the right EXPERIENCE and CONFIDENCE to get the job done not only effortlessly, but also with style and class. We didn't have time to deal with all the issues so we asked Kate to creatively manage both the macro and micro details of all aspects of the wedding and we were so glad we did! After a few interviews via skype and one in person I really feel like Kate took her time to get to know us, our lifestyle, and our preferences.... During a brainstorm session Kate had amazing ideas including one about having a 'movable feast' instead of a traditional sit down wedding dinner. We went with this idea and EVERYONE IS STILL TALKING ABOUT HOW COOL THAT WAS!! All of the vendors she suggested were perfect and phenomenal! From Marcey Brownsein Catering, DJ James, and Bettina, oh lovely Bettina! (our officiant), what a steal! Kate was such a pleasure to work with exhibiting the highest level professionalism at all times, whilst all the while being relaxed and fun! We got a bit frazzled near the end and she really helped coach and inspire us through this rough patch. You could tell she had the experience of many many many events, and this was so, so key for us because we have none! I really felt as though Kate and Jess were really personally invested in our success, almost as if we were family. All in all I would enthusiastically recommend Kate for pretty much any event, especially if you're busy and simply just want it done right!!
