More and more, we’re meeting couples who found love in NYC, though one or both originate from countries abroad. Many choose to wed in an intimate ceremony overseas, then host a New York-based reception to celebrate with family and friends at home. This got us thinking—what would it look like to host a local reception that invites guests into the colorful experience of the Mediterranean destination where the couple exchanged vows?Read More

Recently, my close friends opted for a “micro-wedding” (about 20 guests or less). I was intrigued to find out that this is becoming more and more popular with couples. With the price of weddings as high as ever, and everything else that goes into having big celebrations, a small wedding is looking more and more appealing to many couples.
Dedicating a website to your wedding is an efficient way to combine all the details of your wedding. I am personally planning my own wedding next summer in Europe and I have guests attending from all over the world.
