After more than a year of celebratory events related to their wedding, Rushmi and Vikram finally enjoyed their last wedding celebration right here in the Big Apple. I think I may have been just as sad as they were when the party was over... after working on their engagement party in Pennsylvania, multi-day wedding in Bangalore and now this last party in New York, I barely know what to do with myself when not working on what Rushmi would call a "RushmiAndVikram.com" event! But, like every one of their other celebrations, this was a great party and I was thrilled to be a part of it.
Since the couple was still recovering from a week of elaborate wedding events in India (I am still working on getting those pictures, by the way!), they wanted to keep this event for friends and family who couldn't travel to India for the wedding relatively simple. So, we decided to create a fun, sexy lounge atmosphere at The Midtown Loft and focus on two great accent pieces - the bar and the dessert table. Because I knew how much this crowd likes to party, I created a large square bar in the middle of the space so that guests could be served from all sides. We re-used the hanging candle holders from the entryway at their engagement party to create a ceiling treatment above the bar to further customize the space.
Then, about half way through the party, we revealed a dessert bar with mini-yummies from the best places in New York including Three Tarts, Baked by Melissa, Wanna Hava Cookie and Economy Candy. Cupcakes, whoopie pies and cookies, oh my!
