Lia and Robert found us online while shopping for their NYC wedding from far off Australia where the couple lives and works. A truly international couple, Lia was born in Korea and raised in Manhattan, while Robert hails from the city of Preston in the UK. The couple met in Thailand and have travelled the world together. When we first started planning with them they had just gotten back from hiking in the Philippines! All of Lia and Robert’s travels made for a super sweet and fun way of planning the seating arrangements.

Coolest seating chart ever.

 

Each table was named for a significant city in the couple’s relationship, lives and travels. This map was posted at the entrance to the reception space so people could find their city and see who they would be sitting with. It was a lot of fun and we all got to learn a little something more about Lia and Robert that we might not have known.

The ceremony took place right outside the boathouse on the pond in Prospect Park. It’s a beautiful setting. The bride entered to a solo guitar version of Christina Perri’s A Thousand Years. One of the bridesmaids shared a reading from a Walt Whitman poem.

Beautiful outdoor ceremony setting.

 

Lia and Robert’s wedding was small and intimate, making it a perfect fit for the boathouse in Prospect Park. They chose a slightly smaller version of Nite-Time. We had four pieces to complement not only the size of the space and number of guests, but the couple’s laid back style. We stayed with mostly background music through dinner and then ramped it up after everyone had finished eating and all of the speeches had been made. There was also a slideshow presentation that Lia and Robert’s families had put together set to a song written by Lia’s cousin.

We had a blast at this wedding and felt so honored to be included in Lia and Robert’s big day, right down to our own city/table!

Thank you so much guys and I hope you had an awesome time in Machu Picchu.

Lia and Yves!

Hot Review!

Kathy’s daughter, Julianna got married on the hottest day of the year in a semi-outdoor venue in Brooklyn that had… you guessed it… no A/C!
They were the nicest group of people and really great sports considering that it was over 100 degrees in Prospect park that day. Cheers to all of their guests for dancing like there was no heatwave!

Shortly after the event, Kathy sent us this email…

Hi Amy and Yves,

I’ve been meaning to send you an email to tell you what a wonderful time we had. You guys were great and deserve an A++++ rating just for showing up in that awful heat! You are true professionals and obviously love what you do and do it very well, regardless of the circumstances. We had alot of nice, positive comments on how great the band was. We were fortunate to have such high-quality music and food that our guests seemed to overlook the heat in favor of having a great time.

We will definitely give you the best feedback possible and will recommend the band to anyone in the market for great performers. Please feel free, if you’d like, to use our names as references. We hope you’ll continue making music for a long time, as we have 2 more daughters (but they’re only 18 and 21!).

Best regards,
Kathy
