Gabrielle & CJ are married! [Sage Chapel Cornell University + Gratitude & Grace | Ithaca, NY]

Gabrielle and CJ’s wedding was absolutely incredible and a favorite of our 2017 season. Upon our first meeting Gabrielle showed me an inspiration photo from Pinterest and said “I want to this to be my wedding reception”. It was a picture of an outdoor wedding reception in warm sunny California… keep in mind we are in Upstate New York where the weather is definitely not dependable (it’s the end of March and we are still freezing).. Lots of emails, design boards, rental conversations/collaborations led to her vision becoming a reality. All the work Gabrielle put in with me brought her dream to life – how amazing is that?!  And that was just the decor element of the reception – we surprise Irish Step Dancers that were coming during cocktail hour, a champagne tower toast, amazing food, lawn games, lounge spaces and more! Take a look at their breath taking day!
