Where did you get married?

Larkfield in East Northport, NY

Why did you choose to get married at Larkfield?

We loved the rustic Italian villa feel of the exterior of Larkfield as well as the cocktail hour room which is designed to look like an orangerie. It’s a beautiful twist on the standard Long Island catering hall. The venue is also known for the quality of food which is very important to us. We also took post-church, pre-reception photos at the Vanderbilt Museum which boasts some beautiful Spanish-style backdrops. I love that between both venues we were able to capture both of our backgrounds.

What was the most memorable part of your wedding day?

So many favorite moments! It would probably come down to two, the first being our first dance. We’d done a dance class and choreographed a dance to Forest Blakk’s ‘Fall Into Me’. We definitely missed a few steps but there were surprisingly no nerves and any slip ups had us laughing just like when we practiced. It was so fun, our guests were the best cheerleaders, and it felt so us. But I also clearly recall the moment we first sat down at the sweetheart table and had a moment to breath – just the two of us – and look around and take in the room and how beautifully everything came together from the centerpieces, to the baby’s breath and rose garland on our table. It was wild to look around at everyone we loved in the room and we take in the fact that they were all here for us and it was OUR wedding day.

Jasmine, paint us a picture. What was the theme, style, colors, and overall vibe of your wedding day?

The overall feel I wanted to go for was timeless and romantic, while also playing a bit into a winter theme. Our florals were all baby’s breath and white roses combined with various hanging, floating, and pillar candles. Our overall color scheme was white and gold with the bridesmaids wearing different Eucalyptus green dresses.

What was your favorite part of planning your wedding?

That’s tough! I really loved going in for our centerpiece mock-up and seeing one of our tall centerpieces fully put together. But we also had such a fun time at our food tasting with some family members and the morning we spent cake tasting. The funnest parts of planning were definitely all the appointments that gave you a taste of sneak peak of the full picture.

What was the best investment you made for your wedding?

The musicians that we booked hands down! We’d been huge fans of violinist, John Randolph prior to getting engaged. He plays instrumental versions of modern songs specializing in R&B and thought he’d be a great addition to our cocktail hour. We also booked with our DJ, a saxophonist to play with the music for the entirety of our reception. We’ve received so many compliments and comments on how talented and fun both musicians were. I couldn’t recommend enough booking some love musicians or interactive entertainment for your day especially if you aren’t doing a live band as your primary music provider.

Is there anything you would have done differently?

Honestly, I don’t think we’d change a single thing other than see if we could’ve extended the night an extra hour. We had the night of our lives but it really does fly by so fast!

What was your favorite part of using WedSites for your wedding?

I loved the layout customization options with Wedsites and how I was able to make our site match perfectly the invitations I designed instead of only having the option of pre-made layouts. The RSVP feature is also so multifaceted and was so useful since we had quite a few guests and were not doing traditional mail-back RSVPS.

Wedding planning is notoriously stressful. Now that you’ve gone through the process, do you have any advice or words of wisdom for couples who are currently in the midst of planning theirs?

Try to decide early on in the planning process what would make your day feel the most you and would make the two of you the most happy. Then try very hard to drown out contradictory opinions or trends that make you feel as if you should be doing something else. For example, we knew didn’t care about having high-priced invitations and aren’t massive dessert people but knew we wanted some live music and late-night eats. We had friends who felt the opposite or had other priorities but stuck to our britches and it truly felt like OUR day.
