Melanie & Mike’s wedding earlier this year consisted of two parts. The first was an intimate ceremony on Thursday at Mike’s parent’s home. Then that Saturday they invited friends and family to celebrate with a cool cocktail party at Haven’s Kitchen. The venue is a unique space near Union Square. Part cooking school, part specialty food shop and varied event space, it has a mission and a vibe that resonates with people who care about food. They even took care of the floral arrangements. Mel’s dress was a fabulous choice by Alice & Olivia. The cake was made with love by the bride/pastry chef at Mini Melanie, yes there is a connection. The light that afternoon was gorgeous and we all enjoyed a wonderful time.
