Clarissa and Alexa were set up by a mutual friend of theirs on a blind date and I can still remember Clarissa sitting on my couch looking at Alexa's website and thinking that she was out of her league. Well, she was obviously wrong, the date went awesome and here we are a few years down the line planning their wedding.
The event was hosted by our friends at The Cupcake Cafe in Manhattan. Not only are their cakes and cupcakes to die for, but the cafe's décor was exactly the shabby chic that we wanted for this event. Exposed brick, thick barn wood tables, perfectly mismatched chairs, and an antique stone lion's head. A killer rustic bar was setup and accented the room with fresh hydrangeas, branches, and candles - but really the bones of the space were the inspiration.
The bite sized lemon poppy cupcakes (a preview of their wedding cake) went as fast as they were put out as guests lingered through the night. The last person left around 3am...now that is the sign of an excellent party.
Congrats you two!
