Fanta and Darwin decided early on that they were not going to have a wedding planner. They had been together since high school after all. If anyone knew how to best express the nuances of their love, relationship, and personalities over the course of a wedding day, it was them. Fanta is African and Darwin is Haitian. Ending their once-in-a-lifetime event in a joyous celebration that united their cultural heritages was very important to the couple. Fanta looks back and says, “It was just a big party the whole night!” Here, she shares the details about their unforgettable, fun-filled reception.

After exchanging vows, Stefanie and Mike welcomed guests to a stunning reception with décor capturing the magical ambiance of the evening. From the brilliant florals to the gorgeous dinnerware to the show-stopping cake, this was going to be a celebration no one would soon forget. Here, Stefanie shares the final chapter in her Real BB Wedding story.

Part 4: Reception, Guest Card Display and Centerpieces

The evening festivities commenced with cocktail hour. Guests mingled, enjoyed delicious hors d’oeuvres, and raised the first of many toasts to the newlyweds. Afterward, everyone returned to Gotham Hall’s Grand Ballroom where they were greeted with a card display made of two walls decorated with greenery and flowers. Stefanie and Mike enlisted Ceci New York to put a personal touch on all of their wedding stationery. “We loved collaborating with Pejy Kash to bring Stefanie and Mike’s classic and timeless vision for their invitations to life,” the luxury wedding invitation designer remarks. “When it comes to the day of accessories, we always love a floral, so when Pejy asked us to create something inspired by Bride & Blossom’s floral design for the day, we were in. We created beautiful floral tags using our signature Ceci Floral Watercolor, each had the guests name hand calligraphed. It was a perfect combination, and for us it’s all in the details!”

After seeing a Broadway show with her mom and grandma, Stefanie planned to meet up with friends for a night out in the city. Stefanie reassured them not to worry about how she would get home – her friend Mike had offered to drive in from East Meadow, just a town over from where her parents lived in Long Island and pick her up. She just had to ask. Grandmas know best and Stefanie’s grandma saw the situation clear as day. “If he is going to drive all the way into Manhattan at 1 am to pick you up and then just turn around and bring you home, he must be in love with you.”
