Neha & Warren

Neha and Warren were married at the Eiteljorg Museum on October 11,2008 for the second time!!! They had a Hindu ceremony earlier this summer. Neha was all about the planning. At our first meeting I asked when and how did Warren propose. She told me it was Saturday night ( we were meeting on the following Thursday) and she had already secured the venue! I knew right then that this girl wasn't wasting any time and she didn't have a lot of time to waste. Neha and Warren are both doctors and their schedules are demanding. From the very beginning, Neha was worried about the weather. I would always try to calm her down telling her its going to be beautiful whether the ceremony is outside or inside. But when we got down to the final two weeks before the wedding Neha couldn't keep her eyes off the http://www.weather.com/ . Warren and I finally had to limit her to only checking once a day!!!! When October 11th rolled around it ended up being a beautiful day. Who would of thought 85 degrees in the middle of October needless to say we didn't use the outdoor heaters! The day started out with girls getting their hair and makeup done at Savvy Salon. Savvy has a great (private) room for bridal parties. The girls sipped mimosas and snacked on fruit while having hair and makeup done. Julie stopped by to show Neha and the girls their bouquets. Then the ladies went back to Neha's apartment to get dressed while the guys got ready across the canal at the Residence Inn. Jen (my wonderful assistant) and I set up everything we could in ballroom while the museum was open then Jen transferred things out outside. Warren didn't want to see Neha before the ceremony so getting them both to the Eiteljorg at the same time was a little tricky but of course we pulled it off. The ceremony area was beautiful and the ceremony started right on time. The sun was setting and The Village Trio started to play it was so romantic. After Neha and Warren were pronounced man and wife guests had Gavinitis ( their signature drink ) and hors d'oeuvres in the upper circular garden. The one thing we didn't plan for was mosquitoes!! They were terrible! So we had to change plans up a little bit. The couple wanted to take pictures on the canal but we ended up taking them inside. Kahn's Catering the exclusive caterer at the Eiteljorg rang the dinner chimes and The Wendy Reed Band announced the bridal party. Dinner was fantastic. Guest had a choice of salmon or chicken. Warren's brother Bryan sang while Neha and Warren danced their first dance and husband and wife. If was so touching. I love it when weddings get personal. I think that is what makes every wedding unique. The band played while guests mingled with each other and danced until Midnight. Once the Jen and I had cleaned up we joined the couple for a drink at an impromptu after party at Nicky Blane's. Neha didn't change out of her wedding gown so everyone was coming up to her congratulating her and Warren. A special thanks to everyone that helped me with this wedding. Cara from Kahn's, Sarah at the museum, Julie and her gorgeous floral creations, Stacy and Mary the fabulous photographers and Bob and his video camera. This wedding was definitely one to remember. Neha and Warren are taking a late honeymoon to Mexico in February. I'm already jealous just thinking how COLD its going to be then!
