Julie absolutely knew what she wanted from the first time we met. She wanted a wedding that was a not your traditional affair, but rather a a joining of Julie’s southern family and Jason’s New York relatives. She succeeded in every way! Lovers of New York City, the couple wanted their wedding to be local, and in a place that meant something to them, but yet extended the feeling of Southern hospitality and comfort. They chose their favorite Tribeca neighborhood dinner spot, Michelin star rated Marc Forgione, to host their wedding ceremony and cocktail style reception.
The Bride got ready at the neighboring Greenwich Hotel, which is a fabulous downtown Manhattan hotel for prepping & first look shots.
In line with the casual feel that they hoped to achieve, the ceremony simply had the officiant gather in the center of the room with the couple, as guests watched from a circle that they formed around them. Live string musicians added the only formality and filled the space with wonderful ceremony music! After the ceremony, guests were treated to a meal that was out of this world.
