Time certainly does fly by when you have planned a wedding for at least a
year, and suddenly, here it is, the day everyone has been waiting for! I
think Alison’s mother Este must have felt that way since she started
planning for what turned out to be a magical day for Alison, Geoff and all
the families and friends that were invited!!
Everything took place at the mansion started with hair and make-up, and then
Ali and the bridesmaids gathered into the Sanders Suite to help the bride
into her gorgeous gown and wowed everybody for the reveal! From there we
met up with Geoff looking very handsome along with his best man and
groomsmen for a chance to get some photographs of them.
We planned the first look outside in front of the Mansion where Ali tapped
on Geoff’s shoulder for her to show her groom how stunning she looked for
their wedding day! After that the Katonah signing where technically they
Can’t stop now, time for the ceremony down by the gazebo overlooking the
river with all the quests anxiously waiting to see this loving couple
married. On Ty from Surroundings created a breathtaking floral display on
and around the gazebo including all the floral arrangements for the cocktail
hour, the ballroom and bouquets!!! After the ceremony, quests were invited
to the patio for not only delicious food but eye appealing with amazing
looking displays that draw you right in before you even eat!
Let’s get this party started as bells rang for guests to enter the ballroom
and introductions about to take place as the very talented NY Players got
this part of the night started. Nothing was left out of this incredible
wedding day for Ali & Geoff.
Lucien the banquet manager and his staff were right there for whatever
anybody needed. Introductions, first dance, the hoorah, toasts, dinner,
cake and party time!!! The band was very lively and got everybody on their
feet, all ages could not stop dancing all night and for a little break a
dessert station was revealed for all to enjoy and then back to dancing to
work it off!
Thank you Ali, Geoff, your families, and extended families, for choosing us
to be part of this amazing day with you all! We truly appreciate how much
enthusiasm you had for letting us get creative so that your photographs
would be a memorable reminder of this magical day! We wish you all the
health and happiness that comes your way!
Michael and Nancy
