Spotlight: Erika & Zack

Tonya Brown

This DIY wedding felt nothing short of amazing.  Our bride Erika & her mother Kitty put a lot time and energy into the design & decor and Erika was able to have her dream wedding.   Each specialty table along with the centerpieces and arch was personally designed by mother and daughter.  What motivation and inspiration for all those DIY brides out there.   Erika looked like a beautiful princess on her special day and she was more than ready to marry her prince Zack. This Bride & Groom had more than enough love and support from all friends and family especially their  bridesmaid’s and groomsmen’s as they performed a thoughtful and comically choreographed reenactment of how they met.  Congratulations Erika and Zack, may the love and support you experienced on your special day follow you always!

This gorgeous couple and their adorable dog decided to have their engagement photos taken at the hotel. What an amazing job Nicole from Xsight Photography did. The Penthouse Suites on the 14th Floor are the premier locations to take photos for any occasion. The suites itself have so much character and the views the attached balconies have are just breathtaking. In The Scandal Lounge on the Mezzanine level of the lobby all the old law books that were left here from the original building are built into the walls. There is not a place in this hotel that is not photogenic and these photos really show off all the unique locations we have.

If our bride Erica looks familiar you may have seen her as one of the contest winners chosen to model in a photo shoot featured in Real Weddings Magazine September 2017 issue.  She posed as a bride in the photo shoot and looked  breathtaking,  but not nearly as breathtaking  as she looked on her wedding day!  She was a natural beauty and her handsome groom Mike complimented her perfectly along their side was their lovely daughter.  Erica definitely didn’t mind sharing the spotlight.  Erica and Mike’s evening started at The Citizen Hotel with one of the most exciting introductions as husband and wife.  Performed and recorded by the one and only UFC announcer Bruce Buffer… talk about originality. This introduction was epic and will be remembered for days to come.  They say less is more but Erica and Mike have proven more is amazing, more is fabulous and more is fun!  They created a cozy comfortable space in our Metropolitan Terrace making all their guests feel at home.  Take a browse at the pictures below (compliments of Avery Wong Photography).  It is hard to put in words all the heart and soul Erica put into this day, but a picture says a thousand words…

Spotlight: Madison & Danny

Tonya Brown

With a little imagination, a lot of love and support anything is possible.  This little mermaid, Madison and her groom Danny, fell nothing short to create their dream vision of the Neverland Mermaid Lagoon for their wedding day.  Every small to big detail was thought of.  From the little beta fish that was incorporated in the centerpieces to Mickey Mouse making an appearance on the grooms tie… from the candy table to the bridesmaids dresses… to the personalized gems sliced place cards that each guests took home as a keepsake. The strategic guestbook table placement to the mothers picketing their youngest baby’s pictures as they were introduced into the reception and a sweetheart table designed for two sweethearts.   Everyone felt like a guest of honor, especially the bride and grooms doggy, Hayden, (who ordered the chicken entrée) added a personal touch being there till the end of the night.  I cannot say enough good things about Madison and Danny.  It was such a blessing to assist with their big day. 

Of course we cannot forget about each vendor who contributed their piece to the puzzle to make this vision come to reality, especially Scott & Dana for capturing these amazing photos.

Spotlight: Courtney & Donny

Tonya Brown

Eat, Drink, Be Merry and Travel! A perfect motto to describe our lovely Bride Courtney and her firefighter Groom Donny.  These two jet-setters celebrated their marriage at The Citizen Hotel on September 16, 2017. Time is precious and not taken for granted for this couple, spending time together is not always easy with the demanding life of a firefighter. Incorporating where they have been around the globe are noted in the small details.  You really could really sense how much they enjoyed just “being” with each other. This couple was a perfect reminder that it’s the little thing in life that are actually the big things. 

A special shout out to all the vendors who contribute to Courtney & Donny special day!

It was a gorgeous day in April for this couple's special day. These photos really show how amazing everything was. The attention to detail that Sarah put into the planning of her wedding really paid off. Having the ceremony and reception in the same place yet the space looks so different. There was a lot of thought put into the design and we love being able to show it off.
