Real Weddings: Zena & Jose 9/20/09

I was very excited to be a part of Zena and Jose’s Wedding. They were planning a very intimate bee themed wedding at Blue Hill at Stone Barns. Zena had the most unique ideas and I was happy to see such creativity.
I was vey impressed with how organized Zena was. She gave me a 12 page ( yes, 12 page document) with a timeline of their weekend, day of wedding, transportation arrangement and even a schedule for the hair and make- up . It was a little crazy but I wasn’t left in the dark. Love you Zena: )
The couple had a very intimate ceremony with 60 of their closest family and friends at The Sheraton, Tarrytown. Since they had a bee theme, the officiant incorporated a salt and honey ritual in the ceremony. It was a 10am ceremony, so the guests were given small bags of cereal. The cereal bags had tags which had the order of the ceremony.
After the ceremony the guests were transported to Blue Hill. It was cocktails and nothing but delicious food. The great thing about Blue Hill is that the meals are prepared from everything grown on the farm. The cake was not only a pleasure to look at, but it tasted even as delicious. The cake was designed by the talented bride. The guest also had petit fours and they got a personalized bottle of honey to take home as favors.
