Exactly one month ago, on August 23rd Catherine “Cat” Alves and Jennifer “Chico” Ithier exchanged vows and started their lives together as a married couple at CityView Racquet Club in Long Island City, NY. It was my honor to be their wedding coordinator. Working with them for a year allowed me to learn more about the people they were and, even better, the couple they are. I could see from the beginning their love, respect and understanding of one another.
My favorite part of the wedding was their creative gene and the way their vision came to fruition. From the gorgeous homemade bamboo altar created by Cat’s maid of honor and sister Stephanie, to the chalkboard table signs and simple centerpieces, the Ithier/Alves wedding could not have been more beautiful. The overall theme of the event was chalkboard with the colors of emerald green and a hybrid of cobalt and royal blues. The hints of chalkboard complimented the wooden and white look of the rooftop reception under the New York City skyline.
Although rain clouds threatened our initial plans the entire day, the evening turned out exactly as we planned and more importantly the wedding guests could not stop raving about their evening, which was amplified by the really good music (I mean really, really good music) by DJ Uneeq. I wish the best to Cat and Chico and their entire family! I am so happy for you and truly grateful that you allowed me the opportunity to share in your wedding journey!
