Ilana and Marc’s wedding was amazingly, stunningly, beautiful. It was difficult to put together this post, because they had so many gorgeous moments in their day. Both the bride and groom got ready at the Saratoga Marriott, and they had their first look in Congress Park, just before sunset. The ceremony and reception were held at the Museum of Dance. The reception lasted late into the night with City Rhythm‘s rocking live band.
Ilana and Marc, it was so much fun to work with you, and we enjoyed every minute of your wedding! We wish you two all the best in the future!
~ Sincerely – Allison & Tim
Ilana patiently waited for Marc to walk up and surprise her.
By the time Marc reached here, his eyes were welling up with tears. It was so beautiful.
The two just stared, smiled and laughed with each other for several minutes.
After some photos in the park, we decided to travel up Broadway. These guys were up for anything, and we had a bunco of fun picking out spots for a quick photo. First, they stopped traffic.
Then, they ran up the steps of Maestro’s for a quick shot next to their outdoor heaters.
Next was a quick stop at Bettie’s Cakes…
Then we had to stop at Druther’s to check out their fire table. After that, it was on to the Dance Museum!
Ilana and Marc took a few formal photos with friends and family in front of their Chuppah before the ceremony.
The Chuppah represents the home the couple will build together.
Then it was time to get married!
The reception was decorated impeccably. Deryck de Matas‘ floral arrangements were simply stunning. Deryck combined flowers with edibles. If you look below, you can see eggplants, cabbages and apples within the flowers.
Marc and Ilana had an adorable first dance prepared for everyone.
Their families joined in, and they were lifted up on their chairs in celebration. The energy in the room was absolutely magnetic! The rest of the evening included toasts, cake cutting, and much, much more dancing.
