“I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream”
To all the hopeless romantics out there, we hope your “love” week was as magical as this castle wedding at the beautiful Hempstead House!
When our bride and groom Erin and Eric told us they wanted a “show stopper” cake, we decided that their cake couldn’t be any other regular cake. And since the bride’s father is the former CEO of Entemann’s, we knew we had to deliver!! Instead we opted for a 4 tier cake… and each tier was 9″ high!! When the couple walked in and saw their cake, they were wowed! This show stopper was taller than them… and definitely a focal point of the evening.
A big thank you to Icing on the Cake for bringing our “show stopper” vision to life!!
We’re so excited to share that we’ve won another WeddingWire Couples Choice Award!!

It’s going to be a blast!
With all this rainy weather in NY, we are pretty sure that all the brides and grooms getting married are a little mad at Mother Nature. Well rest assured that no matter the weather, you can have the most AMAZING time at your wedding!
Take Chrissy & Pete for example, a fun couple we worked with last June. Set under a tent in the backyard of the groom’s beautiful Long Island waterfront estate, this June wedding was a gorgeous affair. The gloomy, rainy day added a touch of ambiance to a magical night with 375 of the bride’s and groom’s closets friends and family!
The inspiration for this wedding all began with the beautiful property and the bride and groom’s personal interests. Mixing the groom’s love for boating and the bride’s girly personality, we worked with this couple to create a “shabby chic nautical” wedding. An inspiration board was styled by Above All Events to help direct Chrissy and Pete in the right direction, working together and incorporating the two themes to make them one.
With a background in graphic design, the groom created all of the wedding stationery, including a personalized monogram which set the tone. A beautifully designed anchor with the date and couple’s initials was the starting point of the groom’s vision. This monogram spread throughout their invitations, menus, donation cards, seating charts and bar menus.
Above All Events worked with the couple to arrange and design a space that was functional, yet beautiful. 38 banquets tables were situated under the tent with 3 different tablescapes to add highs and lows with a touch of uniqueness. Amongst the various table designs candles, hurricane vases, lanterns, ropes and custom floral arrangements (including stunning peonies) were used to create a nautical wedding with a splash of shabby chic.
The estate was decorated to the brim with many DIY items, including tall guest seating chart chalkboards, welcome and instagram signs, photo booth props and a photo collage book, all of which Above All Events helped to put into motion. Furniture and decor items were specially designed and built by Decco. These items included four drift wood bars, a custom cigar bar and a DJ front board. Spreading these items around the property brought the theme together throughout. Above All Events worked hand-in-hand with Decco to drape Edison bulbs above the dance floor.
Despite the torrential downpour, the bride and groom kept their spirits high and danced the night away with music from Bravura Entertainment.
Held at the romantic Bourne Mansion in Oakdale, New York, this beautiful mansion wedding was filled with glam and style on a gorgeous May day!
High School sweethearts, Makenzie and Kyle were such a beautiful couple to work with. Blush pink set the tone for this magical spring black tie affair. Jessica from Whimsy B. Paperie designed stunning letterpress invitations, which helped inspire the design and style of the wedding day. The bride, ornamented with special touches by Ashleigh Malangone NY, wore a gorgeous Vera Wang gown and Christian Dior shoes. Ashleigh added her dazzle and bling to the bride’s bouquet and styled and designed the bride’s accessories.
From the moment guests arrived they knew this was going to be a wedding like no other! The grand entrance of the Bourne Mansion was adorned with flowers and mercury glass galore, as the guests sipped champagne, explored the old world feel of the mansion and saw a glimpse of past family weddings – years of love and tradition to be treasured and shared with their guests.
The main ballroom of the mansion, which was once the site of Cornelius Vanderbilt’s daughter’s wedding, was jaw-droppingly gorgeous. Tables were dressed with mercury vases filled with pale pink roses and white hydrangeas, draped in crystals. Hundreds of candles filled the room, creating the perfect romantic ambiance for an elegant ballroom wedding. Gorgeous ruffled pink linens and chair covers added to the “wow” factor when guests stepped into the room. This stylish wedding filled with elegance and beauty was perfectly executed alongside many of Long Island’s top wedding vendors, including above all EVENTS, Christina Bohn Photography, Joseph Edward Films, Ashleigh Malangone NY, Whimsy B. Designs, Flowers by Brian, Virginia Linzee, Nicole D’Angio Master Stylist, Mark of Elegance Limo and One Step Ahead.
Choosing the perfect cake that you and your guests will enjoy is a difficult (yet delicious) part of planning your wedding. Making sure to consider your theme, color scheme, the season of your wedding, and of course your taste preferences can quickly make the process overwhelming, and with so many options for style, flavor, and design it seems almost impossible to decide. But we’re here to help with our favorite cake trends of 2015!
No, the bakery didn’t forget to ice your cake because they ran out of time – it’s supposed to look like this! The naked cake is a take on the traditional tiered cake (sans frosting of course). With a naked cake, your guests can see exactly what scrumptious fillings they’re biting in to. This rustic cake is also ideal for an outdoor spring or summer wedding since melted frosting won’t be a worry!
Another nontraditional take on your wedding cake are these pint sized treats. Many couples decide against mini cakes because they might come across as too casual but with the addition of decorative cupcake liners, ornate stands and beautiful decorations they can be just as elegant as a traditional cake (and not to mention twice as fun!)
In 2014, gold cakes were all the rage. This season, the metallic palate has expanded to include bronze, silver and copper hues. Metallics allow you to have a traditional cake when it comes to the structure but with a modern and glamorous twist. And if full on shimmer is too much for your taste, think about metallic accent flowers or adding just one metallic tier.
Wedding Cake Trio Tables
Having what seems like a never-ending debate with your significant other over your wedding cake? Well before ending your marriage (before it even begins) over it, just pick them all! The beauty of a cake trio is that your guests aren’t forced to eat a cake they hate, everyone can choose the cake that appeals to them. And better yet, the cake table makes for a gorgeous display at your reception!
