This was our first time back at the Garrison since the renovations over the winter. Wow! The ceremony area on the lawn boasts
a panoramic view of the Hudson River and valley. The cocktail hour area is glassed in and completely climate controlled; no more sweaty summers or chilly autumn nights under the tent. Now guests enjoy an unobstructed view from ceremony all the way to through the reception.
Sarah was simply lovely. I loved watching her dance with her head on her new husband’s shoulder during their first dance to “You and Me” by Penny and the Quarters.
The centerpieces were Jeff’s favorite, a riot of color with yellow daisies, pink zinnias, red roses and purple flowers, adding a bold splash of color to the cream linens. The cake was decorated in yellow and purple lilies.
Sarah originally described her colors as “Dunkin’ Donuts” pink and orange, and the actual wedding colors were delightfully bold. The bridesmaids wore hot pink dresses and carried yellow bouquets, while Sarah’s bouquet had wildflower colors to matched the centerpieces.
Holy smokes, these guys could dance! The groomsmen were especially crazy, rump slapping, singing along, and forming dance circles all night. Someone even showered them with single bills! Tunes ranged from “We No Speak Americano” to “We’re Not Gonna Take It.”
It was smooth sailing all night, with a cool breeze, a pink orange sunset, the Garrison’s unbelievable entrees and an enjoyable
visit with our talented photographer friends Sara and Sarma. Check out this slideshow of Sara and Sarma’s gorgeous images from the wedding!
You did an awesome job, Sarah and Greg. Thanks so much for having us!
