Well, this Cincinnista is done for a while with the local fashion and local beauty posts, as I count down to 6 days until my wedding!
I am lucky enough to have found the man of my dreams, especially the second time around…so big check off on that item!
The follow items continue:
With my second (and last) wedding, we didn’t want to make it a big complicated affair but still, yes, a nice, intimate event. Our ceremony is basically a total of 8 people in our lovely, landscaped fountain courtyard. However, after that, we have nearly 50 in attendance at our reception.
The fact remains, whether you event is 50 people or 500, many details have to be addressed. From your attire to the food and drink, to the flowers and furnishings….myself as an aesthetically perfectionistic Cincinnista wants everything to be…well…Perfect!
A few notes:
-Dress and shoes taken care of months ago: White Milly cocktail dress from Neiman Marcus and much used and loved shoes by Jimmy Choo,
-Food: Beth O’Leary Catering out of Newton for the buffet dinner and appetizers. As usual, Dutch’s for an amazing cheese and meat plate to add to the dining palate.
-Flowers by Del Apgar: A mix of colored arrangements with white palettes to go with our color scheme. Del is always a master of talent and creativity. And yes, my daughter Elle and I have matching white bouquets!
-Server and bartender: My old friend Lou Mann and Ray. Been with me for years with parties and can never go wrong with their hard work and amazing personalities!
-Valet service: Prestige Valet. Used then over the years for parties at the office and have never gone wrong!
That’s it for now. This Cincinnista is extremely busy between work, kids and an upcoming wedding. Stay tuned for the final pics and updates.
