We transformed a baron – but beautiful and clean – penthouse space and made it the perfect place for our 100 family and friends to gather for cocktails, candy, cupcakes, cake, ice cream and... great music on a fun summer’s night. The space had perfect 360 degree views of the New York City skyline and everyone had such a wonderful time celebrating our engagement. As you'll see from the event photos, we had fun dressing up the exposed bathtub and bathroom and seamlessly made the space flow. We created a warm and inviting atmosphere to mingle, with the beautiful city scape as our backdrop on a wonderful August evening that we’ll treasure forever.
Mini cupcakes from Baked By Melissa, donuts by Top Chef Just Dessert's Zac Young, mini cheesecakes from Bite Me NYC, brightly colored candy bar with treats from Sweet Works, personalized M&Ms, dipped pretzels by Dylan's Candy Bar and an ice cream/ sorbet cart from Ciao Bella.
Guests took home "Love is Sweet" candy bags filled with some of our favorite treats.
