The following day saw Lee and Adrienne exchange vows at The Pavilion Grand Hotel on the rooftop terrace. It was a beautiful and very private ceremony. We wish the gorgeous couple love, light and a lifetime of happiness. We were thrilled and honored to be a part of your celebration!
In June of 2014 we had our first conversation with Lee. When we got off the phone with him we just knew this celebration was going to be one for the books! Well it did that and more! We fell in love with Lee and Adrienne immediately and with that the planning process went as smooth as could be.
Saratoga National Golf Club near and dear to both Adrienne and Lee as it was the location of the their first date. They thought it only appropriate to continue the tradition and have their wedding celebration at the location. One the venue was chosen the team of Fine Affairs, Rain or Shine and Deryck DeMatas went to work creating a masterpiece for the couple. Walking into the tent that night was just magical.
The party didn't start there though. The pre-engagement celebration held in the private Director's Lounge at Fasig Tipton kicked off the 3 day event! Guests were flown in on Lee's private jet from all over the country and brought to the Pavilion Grand where they began getting ready. It was a beautiful night with the super moon rising over the Oklahoma Track. The delicious food was catered by Mazzone Catering.
For the Engagement Celebration, shades of lavender, ivory and greens with hints of silver mercury glass were used in what we are calling a Rustic French Equestrian Chic look. The couple came up with the unique idea of using a life-size fiberglass horse as their guest registry. As guests arrived to the private valet area they were greeted by the staff of Mazzone Catering with a delicious cocktail of St. Germaine, Prosecco and a hint of lavender. Upon entering the tent, guests cozied up into one of the four separate lounge areas decorated with hints of equestrian, beautiful white lounge furniture and champagne bottle service. Of course the custom-made bar (white washed barn style wood front with a dark mahogany wood top) was also a very popular spot.
Guests dined on steamed mussels, chilled jumbo shrimp cocktail, lobster mashed potatoes and grilled herb tenderloin of beef with horseradish cream and roasted shallots just to name a few of the offerings! The Rhythm Shop really got the party started after food was served. Fireworks by Alonzo lit up the night with a spectacular 15 minute show all choreographed to music selected by the couple. The Rhythm Shop kept the party going till late in the night….no one wanted it to end!
