Kim & Adam's Blackstone Hotel Wedding - Pt 2

Their ceremony went off without a hitch and it was party-time for Kim and Adam!

During cocktail hour, the staff at the Blackstone and Flor de Monte turned the ballroom from ceremony site to a beautiful reception space. It's amazing what can be done in one hour, from tearing down a 12' tall chuppah, moving the stage and getting a 10-piece band in place, and completely setting 16 dinner tables. It's quite a feat, and guests are always amazed when they walk into the same space they were in an hour ago... and it's completely transformed! I love standing near the entrance and watching their expressions!

I love how they decided to offset the muted ivory and grey tones of the Blackstone ballroom with vibrant jewel tones!

Their band, Upbeat Orchestra, kept the guests dancing all night long!

A wonderful time was had by all... thanks Kim and Adam!!
