Two Sides to the Story

Allison & Gabe’s wedding day started like every other – excitable, elegant, stylish and full of lurrrrve – then night fell and the chaos and fun of rock star proportions ensued! I love how the couple’s attire matches their mood – beginning of the day – excited, demure and classy (I adore Allison’s simple dress which she got on sale in Bloomingdale’s),  end of the night – ruffled and rocking the hell out (and again I adore Allison’s dress – which she actually made herself – she bought a basic tutu from Etsy but the rest was all her own work!) In fact it wasn’t just the bride who changed – the whole wedding party got changed (the women from pastels into black ruffles – again make by the bride from tutu’s found on Etsy – and the men into dinner suits) for the massive party at the end of the night!

Photographer Inbal me all about the madness,
Allison and Gabe had a ceremony on a boat in the east river, incorporated marriage rituals from basically every religion they could think of (and made up a few of their own), and later had their reception at the Princess Manor in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, who also catered. They had ice sculptures made in their likeness! Kenley from Project Runway crashed the wedding! The bride got so drunk she lost her shoes (I gave her mine and she still has them)! As you can see, they partied pretty hard and made their own rules.

Thanks to Inbal for sharing and of course to Allison & Gabe for being too freakin’ awesome for words!

  1. Alison and Gabe choreographed the dramatic entry of the bridal party which rocked the house in the form of a bali dance..and climaxed as the
    bride and groom centered and performed a romantic dance straight out of “dancing with the stars”

    A blue screen projected all the madness onto a giant wall…thus effectually soliciting the “rock star’ in all that attended…

    At the stroke of midnite, when alll were to come down to pumkins and mice, Gabe’s announcement to party-on, as he hired the hall for an extended hour, was well received.

    As a guest at this wedding, I can with out reservation say this was by far the most fun, love filled event I have ever attended. But, then again, knowing the bride and groom for some years now, it came as no surprise that their wedding day would be the most amazing event of all time!

    Great memories!! And, a new standard has been set, which I doubt can be reached!
