Masha and Chris’s Italian Russian Fusion Wedding
On a beautiful estate in Fishkill, NY the sweet and bubbly couple, Masha and Chris, said “I do” on September 24th. The ceremony was held on the side of the main stone house overlooking a serene lake. Masha looked stunning in an ivory strapless delicately laced gown with a laced up back and beaded embellishments. After “the kiss” that sealed their vows, the guests headed up to the tented reception area. There they were greeted by lawn games and flip flops so they could relax and enjoy the reception. One of our favorite parts of the decorations was the over sized purple and white balloons that gave off a fun and whimsical feel. They were placed at the entrance as well as at the cocktail tables.Cocktail hour was adorned with a mashed potato bar as well as a grilled cheese bar, yum! The tent was decorated with dark purple, lavender, white, ivory, silver, and grey pompoms and with light around the perimeter. The tables were dressed with dark purple and lavender table cloths and the napkins had an adorable tiny piece of lavender tucked into the seam. The centerpiece made by, Flowers On The Porch, was unique and beautiful. It was made with purple stock flowers & white hydrangea with green hanging amaranth. Also setting the table were delectable caramel apples provided by JJ’s Rockin’ Cupcakes perfect for the season! The creative couple also provided mad libs on the table which created a fun atmosphere for the guests and definitely some memorable reading material for the couple. But wait, the fun didn’t stop there, Masha and Chris offered a photo both with a backdrop of crystals and a variety of silly props to pose with. While their guests were having fun taking pictures the couple got to sneak away with photographer, Keria Lemonis, with the balloons for an adorable photo shoot. Cocktail and Reception area flowed perfectly as guests had the freedom to wander in and out of the tent while the fresh and cool band, “No Standards”. The main singer sang and played acoustic during cocktail hour then picked up the pace when the female vocalist accompanied him. They sang a variety of songs from Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl” to some pop hits such as “We Are Young” by FUN…Guests loved mixing it up as they danced to the combination of both the live band and the DJ. This was another one of Cinderella4aday favorite aspects of the night!
The band produced so much energy that even the brief rain storm could not wash the smiles off of anyone’s face at this wedding and everything continued on as if the dark clouds hadn’t appeared at all. After dancing off their dinner, it was time to indulge in cupcakes. Not just any cupcakes… JJ’s Rockin’ Cupcakes! The Decadent Red Velvet and Holy Cannoli cupcakes sat atop elegant mirrored tiers. As guests left this breath taking wedding they all exclaimed how great of a night they had and took some cupcakes in boxes to go.
