Real Wedding: Shoshana + Noah at The Barn at Valhalla

Sometimes after meeting a couple in person at a consultation I think "I really, really want to work with them!". Noah and Shoshana were definitely one of those couples. Not only were they a fun, sweet couple but we also had some things in common: our NYC history and connections, the fact that Noah is a professor in the department that I received my degree...the list goes on.

When we first started chatting about the details of their wedding I knew that this was going to be a fun one! Shoshana had dreams of bright, colorful wildflowers (which works so perfectly at the Barn) but also with modern touches throughout. I loved the combo and the design turned out stunning - especially the flowers by Bloomin Rose! And while rain threatened us all the way up until Shoshana walked down the aisle, it turned out to be a gorgeous ceremony by the pond. Noah and Shoshana's vows were exactly like the rest of their wedding - sweet, colorful and full of love. I heard many people tell them that they were some of the best vows they've heard, and I agree! One of the things that I loved about their wedding was that, after the ceremony and cocktail hour, they jumped right into dancing. And I don't mean just first dances, but a good 30 minutes of dancing in the barn! It was a unique and fun way to kick off the reception! From there guests enjoyed an amazing family style dinner followed by toasts, cutting the cake and then a whole lot more dancing.

One of my favorite moments of the day was when everyone was on the dance floor doing the Hora - it looked like so much fun and Noah and Shoshana were beaming! They also had the most epic candy bar that guests loved and devoured.

It was truly one of the most memorable weddings I've done. I am so grateful to not only have been able to plan it for them, but also to have met Noah and Shoshana!

Thanks to all our awesome vendors!
