The Reception
After the ceremony guests were ushered to the roof top for cocktail hour where they enjoyed breathtaking views of the Hudson river, empire state building and midtown. Signature cocktails were served along with delicious canapes including mac and cheese cupcakes, sirloin sliders and risotto fritters. Guests then came back down into the venue where the space had been transported back into a luxury cocktail lounge. Guests enjoyed a dinner service in phases, danced to the awesome DJ and enjoyed cocktails all night.

Finella’s Wedding Dress Search
I tried on probably around 15 dresses. I only shopped at Kleinfeld’s and Bergdorf Goodman. I ended up on a J. Mendel dress from Bergdorf.
