Kasey & Jared, The Pierre, NYC
At The Pierre Hotel in the heart of New York City, Kasey & Jared’s wedding was a magical event. Though nuptials are intended to focus on the bride and groom, for Kasey and Jared it was the merging of their two families that held the most weight. Both families have endured difficult hardships – ones that could break the spirits of the best of us. Having first met in college, Kasey and Jared have built an ever stronger bond and deeper love over the past ten years as they’ve overcome adversity.
For the two families to be able to come together and celebrate after all they’d each been through meant so much. The night “felt like a fairy tale,” says Kasey. “Everyone could feel the energy that radiated throughout the night. You could feel it in their hugs and see it in their faces… It was so full of love.”
Although the celebration was less about the wedding itself and more about committing their lives to each other, the event couldn’t have been more breathtaking. Coordinated by Gourmet Advisory and designed by Mark Rose Events, this dream team captured the magic of the evening in every detail. The Pierre was transformed into a nighttime garden; guests entered the reception through ivy covered gates, and floral arrangements were made to look like trees stretching up to the ceilings. The chuppa, bursting with cherry blossom branches, roses and hydrangeas, was one of the most beautiful we’d ever seen.
Needless to say, we feel so honored to have been a part of this wonderful celebration. It was a special evening we will never forget.
Congratulations, Kasey and Jared! We wish you and your loved ones all the happiness in the world.
