Hollow Brook Golf Club Wedding: Lisa and Drew

11.6.10  When we met with Lisa and Drew to hear their ideas for their wedding at the Hollow Brook Golf Club in Cortlandt Manor, NY,

they told us that autumn and winter are totally “them.”  They couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful fall wedding day!

Jeff performed acoustic guitar for the cocktail hour and the more adventuresome guests enjoyed freshly rolled cigars in the crisp, autumn air out on the deck.

Lisa and Drew picked an awesome 80’s song for their introductions.  Do you remember the movie, RAD?  Check out this song, “Thunder In Your Heart.”  Total 80’s goodness.

Their first dance song was, “Free,” by the Zac Brown Band.  I suspect this love song is going to be a popular wedding song in the next year or so.  Beautiful!

The Details

Lisa was beautiful, full of energy and just beaming with happiness so that it warmed my heart.  The bridesmaids wore knee length gray gowns (with pockets!) and chunky beaded necklaces.  They carried bouquets of deep purple calla lilies that complemented Lisa’s bouquet of white calla lilies with deep purple centers.

The table settings were amazing!  Purple orchids in water with floating candles alternated with tall, stunning arrangements of purple orchids and white calla lilies, surrounded by mini pumpkins and votives.  Guests ate off beautiful pewter plates and received maple syrup favors.

The wedding cake, made by the Hollow Brook’s chef, was a chocolate butter cream beauty decorated with orchids.  “It looks exactly like the picture we gave him!” Lisa told me.

Since Lisa and Drew met four years earlier at their friends’ wedding, they decided to dedicate their wedding song, U2’s “All I Want Is You” to them and invite their bridal party to dance.

There were lots of memorable moments on the dance floor (remember doing the cockroach, Drew?) but I got such a kick out of watching Lisa, her girlfriends, and her father dancing and singing along with “Since U Been Gone” by Kelly Clarkson.

I know how much thought and attention went into making this wedding the awesome experience that it was.  Nicely done, Lisa and Drew!  Thanks for letting us in on the fun.
