Corcoran Winter Wedding

Jen and Chris were married one year ago on 11/11/11. For a girl obsessed with number patterns, this was a dream date – to complement her dream husband!  The Corcoran was able to accommodate the 180 guests while also offering a beautiful ambiance with high ceilings and separate spaces for cocktails and dinner and dancing.

Jen, being from New Jersey, wanted to have a huge cocktail reception – full of action stations, passed hors d’oeuvres and grazing stations. Occasions Caterers fit the bill and offered guests a delicious menu with a lovely presentation.

As for decor, Edge designed a jaw-dropping 8 foot tree with hanging crystals for the escort card “table”. During cocktails, Jen and Chris hired Jamie Turner (who you may have seen by the Torpedo Factory playing his water glasses) as the entertainment. This was a nod to Chris, who is a music teacher!

Well, I could go on and on…but, I think the pictures speak for themselves…enjoy!
