This magical evening centered around the love between a sweet-as-can-be couple, and their love for rock-n-roll! They wanted a wedding in which their guests could experience this passion, and with the help of Kate Whelan with Kate Whelan Events, it was a dream come true. Tracey and Dan married on September 28, 2013 in our Plaza Park Ballroom. They said their vows on stage in front of 65 of their closest friends and family. To symbolize the joining of these two, the ceremony featured a creative twist to the unity candle - a unity cocktail titled, "The Last Word". Together, the couple poured Green Chartreuse, Gin, Grenadine, and Lime Juice and voila! What a unique, and delicious, take on this tradition!

After the guests mingled in our Scandal Lounge for cocktail hour, they were invited back into the Ballroom for a Cocktail-Style Reception. Everywhere you turned was a rich showcase of the couple's personality. The tables were adorned with black, sequin linens and deep purple, red, and pink cascading centerpieces. The stage remained so the band, The Rockhounds, could rock on into the night as the "Love" marquee radiated in the background. Kate Whelan even designed the couple's very own VIP booth - velvet rope and plush lounge furniture can certainly add to a Sweetheart Table. The guests were in for a treat at the temporary tattoo station, where they could apply (or save) custom temporary tattoos created by Tracey and Dan with a logo for their special day. Top that off with some Citizen Sliders, Soup Shooters, Hors d'oeuvre Stations, and an Iron Maiden Groom's Cake, compliments of the fabulous Sweet Cakes by Rebecca, and there's a night that truly rocks! Tracey and Dan flawlessly combined an intimate wedding to celebrate what matters most with those dearest to them, and a lavish, rock-n-roll inspired night. If music be the food of love, this evening was definitely overflowing!
