When they said, “We bought the domain name 'lovepartynyc.com'..." we knew these two knew came to celebrate.
Meet Erica + Ryan... they live in SF now but fell in love with each other in New York City. Or maybe fell in love with New York City AND each other is more accurate? Throughout their event, it was brought up multiple times that they just adore New York City and this love-party was made up of two parts: 1) Get married and have a kickass time doing it; and 2) Share their love of NYC with all their guests. So, they took our favorite approach to their love-party planning - an EXPERIENTIAL approach! They didn't check all the "wedding to-do" boxes - they did it their way. They started with a cocktail hour in Williamsburg, paraded via a second-line band to their ceremony, got married in a garden, dinner at a local fav Brooklyn restaurant, after-partied with a Manhattan skyline view, and treated their guests to a sunset cruise the next day.
But the best part of it all? You mean aside from the cookies + milk late night snack via the best bakery in the city [Levain, duh]? It was the total emphasis on fun over fuss. Every step of the way - it was about making choices that kept their community in mind. What's going to be more fun? What's going to allow our guests to experience this city we love while celebrating all the love we have together on this dance floor? When the focus is on the fun + community - I'm just convinced you can't go wrong. And they were right, it was a total NYC LOVE PARTY! We can attest - from that moment they pulled us into their conga line!
