To be honest, when Alex & Spencer told me their wedding day itinerary, I wasn’t sure how it would work out. Would the guests have a hard time sitting down quietly after an elaborate pre-ceremony cocktail hour (note the fruit and vegetables in their floral designs)? Would the couple really like photos of a sunset ceremony without flash? But as it all took shape, it was quickly clear how wonderfully original it all was. The riveting rabbi began the ceremony with a song that focused everyone on the moment, and the sky painted the most beautiful background for Alex & Spencer’s super-loving ceremony. From a mellow hang out with friends while getting ready to a bustling photobooth and party with a dockside scotch and cigar scene, their plans were perfect.
