Motif Private Dining Room/St Regis

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of seeing through a lovely intimate celebration at the St Regis.  Couple of things others may see as challenges with this one, but not me, never a worry.  The groom called me 10 days before the big day to say he had booked a wedding at the St Regis and had invited the 16 guests and had taken care of their flights and accommodation, but that was all he had done,  no vendors in line/plan/vision and we had the threat of rain looming over the day for most of those 10 days.

I got right on it, within 48 hours we had meet with and booked a photographer, florist and linens/chargers.  Then we detailed the timeline for the wedding day, I booked a harpist, ordered white carpet for the runner, we hired a videographer, and had them meet with a papergoods lady for menu cards/placecards/programs and a chocolatierre for favors, and by the Monday the week of the wedding we were in great shape.  We had a meeting with the hotel on the Tuesday to ensure the food & beverage was taken care of, and then we waited for Saturday to come and the rain to go away.

The ceremony was timed for 2:30pm which was fabulous, at 9am it was raining, by noon it was grey sky but rain was gone, but 2:30pm we actually had a bit of  blue sky and some warmth.  See, good things always happen to good people.  The couple got to take photos around the grounds and the guests got to relax a bit, then they all met up for the dinner in the Motif Private Dining room..  It all came together beautifully and the couple and I were very happy.  Thanks to www.Joelaustell.com for the photos below and for being so easy to work with.  They did not keep him on for the dining portion, so the table pictures below look good but not as fabulous as it really looked later when all the glassware and silverware were in place, the table glimmered, it was lovely.  The florals were by Nisie of course, Nisie’s Enchanted Florist, always a beautiful environment created with her and the team.  And of course thanks to the team at Motif and the St Regis who did what they do fabulously. 

My bride made my day, she did not speak much english at all, but when they left that night she stopped me and said ‘Lisa it looked nice, thank you’.  I know the effort that took for her and it was appreciated and I agree.

Till next time
