Describe the wedding planning process. Why did you choose the vendors you worked with?

We started with the venue – we knew we wanted to get married in Manhattan in the winter. Once we found our space (SECOND Floor NYC), we looked into working with vendors who were familiar with it, as we thought things would go smoother this way. We hired a florist, band, and photographer, all on recommendations from other vendors and friends. We also had a day-of coordinator, Shana Sperling, who gave us many helpful tips and contacts along the way. We used the same band as Gillie’s sister from the year before (Pete Saunders of Hank Lane).


What is your advice for newly engaged couples?

Wedding planning can be stressful, but remember, a wedding is one day, a marriage is forever.
