The bride has a love for stuffed animals and included one of her favorites from her childhood in the day by giving him a little squeeze before leaving the bridal suite, where she got ready with her sister. Both of her flower girl nieces also carried a stuffed animal gifted to them by the bride- a bunny bride and groom. Sarah and Claude took their bride and groom portraits across the street from the hotel in the iconic Palisades Park before saying their I Do’s in front of just 30 of their closest friends and family under the famous 140 year old, 80ft tall fig tree in front of the hotel. After the ceremony guests were welcomed to a cocktail hour lounge created by Callista and enjoyed beachy hors d’ouerves including mini lobster rolls and cocktails with napkins that said “we met at the barre.” After cocktails guests enjoyed an al fresco dinner at a mix of round tables and a head banquet table decked out by Twig & Twine with floral tablecloths by La Tavola and beautiful white lace chargers from Casa de Perrin. After dinner the bride and groom danced the night away ending the evening with cake from the Butter End and Salt & Straw ice cream for their guests to enjoy on the dance floor or take home for later. See their rehearsal dinner last week on my blog and both events on the front page of Style Me Pretty.
