Her offbeat partner: Hugo, Assistant Studio Manager- Ad Agency
Location & date of wedding: Church: OLPH, Lindenhurst, NY. Hall: Larkfield Manor, E. Northport, NY — August 14, 2009
What made our wedding offbeat: The first thing we decided on is that the entire menu would be vegetarian. This scared some people, including my mother, but at the end of the day everyone loved it.
I always wanted a Scottish wedding with the men wearing kilts and bagpipers and since I was able to rustle myself up a nice Irish boy I was able to pull the whole thing off quite easily! As you can see from some of the photos… they were indeed wearing undies.
We made a donation in our guests honor to Farm Sanctuary as our favors.
Our biggest challenge: We insisted on a 100% vegetarian menu and there were a few people who had some strong opinions against it. We stuck to our guns and at the end of the day EVERYONE I talked to said their meals were delicious.
My favorite moment: Venetian Hour — an extra hour of dessert? Yes, please!
My offbeat advice: If theres something that you really want and people are giving you a hard time about it you need to remember it's YOUR day. I guarantee that the ones originally complaining are going to be your biggest fans in the end.
