[REAL WEDDING] M & M's Wedding at the New York Athletic Club

When I first spoke to Mimi and her mother Chris, I knew I was going to love helping them with their wedding plans. They were thinking along the same lines I do -- how to surprise and delight your guests with special touches that are meaningful to you and your fiance. 

From the authentic New York City pretzel cart that met guests upon exiting the church, to the trumpeters playing the Notre Dame fight song to guide guests into the dessert and dancing room, to the spread of Mimi & Matt's favorite desserts (HELLO Momofuku birthday cake truffles!), this wedding was imbued with lots of special details that made it unique. 

It also helped that their large bridal party was one of the nicest I have ever had the pleasure of working with! They were a wonderful group of fun-loving friends who wanted to make the day the best possible for the lovely couple. 

That, paired with the 300+ guests that flew in from all around the country, made this unseasonably warm December night one to remember.
