Real Weddings: Kate and Jared Saft

What and exhilarating weekend we had last week--
We were offered the opportunity to experience and style a memorable wedding for the delightful, lovely and charming Kate {then Gissy!} and Jared Saft.

Jared jokingly repeated throughout the weekend that he "just showed up," but Kate and I worked side by side thoughtfully and creatively planning a weekend and a wedding to remember for a lifetime.

Working with Bonnie Garfield, as ever, proved to be a fine endeavor. Her guidance with the family throughout the process was invaluable, and her banquets team is bar none.

The team on hand made all proposed plans effortless and as well as a fine-tuned party!

Kate and Jared's refined style shone through in all elements of decor, food and beverage--

The band kept the dancing going and going {even through dinner!!} and we can't forget Kate's planned surprise for Jared which was having him picked up in a DeLorean!

Thanks to my "Cast of Characters:"

Kate and Jared, Mr. & Mrs. Gissy and Ms Ellen Saft:
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for trusting me with the most important day in your childrens' lives and for so sincerely and sweetly opening your hearts and family to me. This is not the end; simply the beginning!

Dear Lisa,

Everything was so smooth and went as planned, and I owe it all to you. You were so wonderful with the time line scheduling. I had nothing to worry about, which contributed to a very good time by all at my daughter's wedding.

Once again another combined effort in creating a flawless wedding with no detail overlooked. The color combination from the floral to the linens to lighting could not have been a better combination. I always say no one in town can do what Tommy & Lisa do together so well.....

Thanks Tommy and the entire Greenery Productions team.
