Recently a friend of mine from High School asked me to be her wedding planner …and I was truly honored. Not because she is a friend of mine…but she was one of the most stunning brides I’ve ever seen. She’s such a wonderful person inside, that as a bride she glowed. Kelly Clarke & James Kent were married on June 22nd, 2008…I wanted to feature their wedding on my blog because it was one of the most fun weddings I’ve done…and it was even more special because they both are friends of mine.
Kelly & James (Jamal) met back in High School…I knew them both, and from that time they were just the most adorable couple I’ve ever seen. Both Jamal & Kelly were the type of people that everyone gravitated towards. They are funny, kind and just good people.
After many years…these two love birds made it official…Here are just a few of the wedding details…
They got married at the beautiful St. Bartholomew’s church in New York City.
The bride wore a stunning trumpet style dress with fantastic embroidery and crystals throughout. Her veil was cathedral length with matching flower crystals and lace. Kelly had a stunning white peony bouquet, while her bridesmaids walked down the isle with lush pink ones.
After the ceremony it was of course time to party. The reception was held at an Abigail Kirsch venue, The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers. The decor was simple and elegant. Superior Florist created happy Gerber Daisy arrangements on each table, that was accentuated by pin-spot lighting.
The escort table had an incredible lush peony centerpiece that was breathtaking.
You can always tell when the groom completely adores his new bride. It was an incredible crowd…an incredible wedding…and I enjoyed every minute of it. One of the best weddings I’ve ever done…and I’m truly lucky to have been a part of Kelly & James’ wedding day. Congratulations you two!
