Love this black and gold invitation stationary ensemble with customized bowtie and glasses we incorporate all over the wedding weekend. We are amazed by the custom designs created by Jenny C Designs.

The welcome bags were so much fun!

Inside guests found:  popcorn from the Adirondack popcorn co., Saratoga chips and water, jack & coke combo kits, champagne  splits, a sugar cookie with the wedding logo, each of the groom’s favorite candies, a hangover kit, Lake George taffy, and custom phone charger.

We ended up taking over a room at The Sagamore in order to organize inventory for each event!

We started off the weekend with Julian and Gabriel’s Rehearsal and White Party.
Who doesn’t love an excuse to dress in all white?!

Above are fun accessories we ordered for the welcome White Party.

The wedding day started out with beauty and pampering for the bridal party girls and hot shaves and barber cuts for the guys. The guys each walked away with custom shirts from ‘The Groomery’.

 Julian Perez & Gabriel GonzalezThe grooms had a beautiful lakeside ceremony. We made sure their bout’s were pinned just right and sent them down the aisle.

 We planned for a butterfly release at the end of the ceremony and boy do we have a story for you:

These butterflies came to us from a butterfly farm with explicit instructions on how to transport and secure them for release. They were in a refrigerated box at a specific temperature which kept the butterflies in a ‘nocturnal’ state until we were ready to use. This meant that hours before the ceremony we had to slowly bring the temperature down to waken the butterflies and move them from their packaging to the boxes in which they would be released. This was no easy task! In the end the butterflies were released and floated around the ceremony just as the boys kissed!

 Happiness!

Quick hop on the hacker craft for the newlyweds while the guests enjoyed cocktail hour.

A Joan Rivers impersonator on the red carpet welcomed Julian and Gabriel’s guests into the reception. Guests had a red carpet photo opportunity that later turned into their wedding favor.

A close friend of the grooms came up from NJ to design and decorate the ballroom for the main party.

 In the morning guests were invited to join Julian and Gabriel for a farewell brunch.

Rainbow bagels, brought in from an infamous Bagel Shop in NYC, were a huge hit!
