Sublime Summer Weddings


Sublime Summer Weddings

By Great Performances

Our wedding event planners had an exceptionally busy summer of weddings this year! From backyard brunches to rooftop romances, and everything in between, we haven’t seen a wedding season like this before! Our wedding event planners worked tirelessly to ensure every detail was perfect for our couples. Check out a small handful of the weddings we planned this summer and you’ll see why made it into The Knot Best of Weddings Hall of Fame!

620 Loft & Garden Rooftop Weddings

Seven floors above the hustle and bustle of Rockefeller Center is a tranquil oasis with incredible rooftop views of New York City. Strategically placed lighting and candles make the event sparkle with magic.

Guests were greeted with a welcoming flute of champagne and Mint Basil Lemonade. We highlighted the best of the growing season with a our ever-popular rainbow of vegetables in our Growing Season Vegetable Crudite served in a cup for easy nibbling and mingling. A special highlight was the couple’s favorite dish, Scarpetta’s Spaghetti Pomodoro.

Caramoor Weddings

Caramoor’s sprawling gardens with its romantic Sunken Garden make it an idyllic place to tie the knot. The Cedar Walk Path leads guests to the clear sided Reception Tent overlooking the Butterfly Garden.

Masked cater waiters greeted guests with refreshing Berry Basil Lemonades and a variety of hors d’oeuvres including Tuna Poke on a sesame tuile and Potato Cornets filled with Potato Cornet with portobello mousse. A guest favorite was the Raw Bar featuring jumbo shrimp, lobster, crab claws, oysters, and clams.

Central Park Zoo Weddings

For the animal lovers out there, Central Park Zoo makes for a unique and playful wedding venue. One couple even brought their dog dressed for the occasion in a tutu! An open-sided tent with a clear roof makes for a light and airy covered space, perfect for a seated dinner. As the sun sets chandeliers and mood lighting create the perfect mood for an evening of celebration.

Our team greeted guests with a variety of speciality cocktails, including a Strawberry Frose. The decadent menu included a Caviar Specialty Station, an Asian Station, and a Mediterranean Station. After an evening of celebrating, guests were refueled with some late night classics including sliders, tater tots, grilled cheese with tomato soup shooters, and soft pretzels.

One of our favorite weddings included long tables bedecked with a red-checked tablecloth, reminiscent of a picnic. Colorful flowers and sparkling twinkle lights added to the whimsical air. A rainbow emerged, making this an especially memorable wedding.

Fun finger food including our Truffled Mushroom Pizzetta, mini Lobster Rolls, and Popcorn Chicken Cones kicked off the evening. Dinner included decadently delicious comfort favorites like Surf and Turf and Buttermilk Fried Chicken and Waffles, and guests barely had room for our Warm Chocolate Chip Cookies & Milkshake Shot, Lemon Meringue Pie Pops, and Flourless Chocolate Cake.

An especially vibrant wedding – from the decor to the dresses to the dishes – was an Indian wedding in Amagansett. Gorgeous cups of flower petals waited for guests to toss them over the couple. Hand-written menus graced each place setting, and there was an opportunity for guests to write a postcard about their favorite travel place. The food reflected the culture, with the bold colors playing beautifully off the white plates.

Wave Hill Weddings

We held a record number of events at Wave Hill – and looking through our albums, it’s easy to see why! This hidden gem in the Riverdale section of The Bronx has it’s own microclimate, and is lush and green throughout summer. Gorgeous landscaping and stunning views are enhanced by water features, a great lawn, and the greenhouse – all popular spots to take photos.

No two weddings are ever the same, as you’ll see from some of our photo highlights below.

We love a good escort table – it immediately sets the mood for your wedding! Flowers, cacti, and moss all made their way to the escort cards, some even to be brought home by the guests. 

Signature cocktails were a great way for the couples to share some of their favorite memories with the guests. Our teams can help you create a cocktail or we’re happy to use a recipe that has significance for you!

Inside or outside, although there are a some favorite spots in which our couples have chosen to exchange their vows. But there are so many other spaces to explore as well!

Dine al fresco either in a tent or with nothing but the sky above your heads or take your celebration indoors, we’ve got solutions for everything. From formal place settings to more casual ones, we can help make the rental decisions that express your theme. Flowers are always a beautiful pop of color and help bring the outside in.
