A VERY NYC WEDDING....Sarah Jessica Parker would be proud!

It all has to begin with
"The Ideal Husband"
check......
Daughter found her soulmate among
3 million New Yorkers....
So on Saturday October 10th....
They tied the knot in Sutton Place Park....
Steps away from their apartment in Midtown
Manhattan.....in front of an intimate group
of family and friends in the most lovely
perfect wedding ceremony I have ever been witness to....
With "Miss B" at her side as the
Maid of Honor....in her first pair of high heeled
wedge shoes and her ever familiar
Fascinator in her hair...
She escorted her mother down the walkway into the
perfect NYC setting overlooking the
East River and the Queensboro Bridge....
The Balloons were my idea!!
I...as the MOTB has to take credit for something!
3 generations of Adivari women.....
Daughters bouquet was gorgeous...
Her dress....a last minute stand in for the wedding dress
she had custom made that was ruined by the
alterations person....You know from reading my blog....
Something major had to have gone wrong or it wouldn't be
well the Adivari's!!

more about that in a minute....
getting ready for the ceremony......
Music was provided by the Julliard School...
Daughter and Josh did everything themselves....
They could be professional wedding planners..
They didn't miss one detail.......

the colors were oranges and hot pink and deep purple....
The same flowers were used at the reception on all the
Tables....
they were filled with the most beautiful
Dahlia's.....
A last minute Coca-Cola.....
And of course being Italians....you know what that means...
Food....
Daughter did not want their guests getting to the park
early and not having anything to "snack" on
While waiting for them to arrive...
I must say the shrimp was a big hit....
Preparing to raise the Chuppah.....
Heather wanted to personalize this portion of the
ceremony so she made.....
a Custom one using rainbow squares of fabric into
a quilt that was attached to the four poles...
Held up by four of Josh's friends....what a wonderful
Tradition of the Jewish faith....
giving some last minute instructions.....
Let's get this wedding started!!
Married by Josh's cousin Lori....
They wrote such beautiful vows to one another....
we were all in tears....
Yes...even the "Boss"....
If there was ever a match made in Heaven....
This was it.
Sophie calls Josh her "best friend"....
and believe me a better step father daughter could not
Have found....
How cute is she.....
Introducing
Mr. and Mrs. Horowitz.....
And "those people"......
I have no idea why I look so "stumpy"
after all I am 5'4".....I look like I was
slouching or standing in a hole.....but the Boss looks good....
Who knew you could dress him up and take him
Out....
Let me repeat....
The Balloons were my idea!!
Isn't this picture straight out of
"Sex and the City"....
and again that dress was a last minute find....
So this was not planned....
Her original gown was ordered in June...
a lace column dress with an under slip needed
slight alterations.....They were never done...
At the last minute they must have rushed to do them
and one week before the wedding they cut the
under slip too short and crooked...and the top of the
dress fell right off her...It was like a dress for somebody
50 pounds heavier....it was horrible...
So not panicking....Daughter drove herself out to Jersey the Sunday
before the wedding and found what I thought was
"Her".....
So damn adorable.....a fun filled tulle skirt with an uneven hem...
a perfect fit...
we all know everything happens for a reason....
This was one of those cases...
It was the Cary Bradshaw dress.....

My favorite picture....
I can't wait to see the real photographers
take on this....
I love her hand on her hip...
The sun was setting....

And it was on to the party!!
Don't you love the
"Wedding"
sign on the wrought iron fence....
The kids figured out how to hang those
letters to the fence...
such a cute touch!
The celebration party was held at
Tom Colicchio's
"Craft" restaurant...
You all know Tom....the bald judge on Top Chef...
We were in their private dining section...
very cozy and intimate space for a small group...
40 were in attendance...and it was just perfect...
Five tables of eight.....

Fabulous food....
The Two "Mrs Horowitz's"......
Daughter hit the mother in law
Jackpot....
Somehow Sophie got to know the chef Steve.....
The kitchen was open to the room....and Steve
was a "One Man Cooking Machine"...
He was the only chef preparing all that food for
the 40 people....he did an amazing job....
They had a ton of servers and Steve kept them hopping...
As a cook I was highly impressed.....
How pretty is this cake.....
From famed French pastry Chef....
Francois Payard....
The party favors were
Macarons from his bakery as well....

Daughter and the Dad.....
notice the Boss' tie matched the wedding color
theme....
And they will live Happily ever After......

A week later.......an update.........
reporting by e-mail from Europe....
They are enjoying a two week honeymoon and have been to
Venice.....Rome....Athens....and now are cruising on
a Sailing Yacht in the Mediterranean....
We are babysitting the "B" and we haven't lost the cat
so all is well....
Welcome to the family Josh!!
