The Chelsea
( 4.6 / 5.0 )
I worked with two wedding coordinators because the previous one moved away! The coordinator I worked was with Laura, and she was still in transition of her new role. Nevertheless, the wedding went as smooth as it could! Highlights: The food! (although the groom and me hardly had any since we were so busy!), the atmosphere, the hotel rooms, and the service! Some lowlights: small dancefloor.

The servers did give us a plate of some of the hors d'ouerves, but we only picked at it since we were being pulled left and right to take pictures. Our guests raved about the lobster ravioli, lamb chops, and the mini burgers! As for the service, impeccable! Since I brought in all my decorations, centerpieces, candy buffet setups, etc, they were able to follow my directions that I laid out in a photobook! They also sent us strawberries to our penthouse suite that night :)

We did a cocktail reception, so there was a smaller dance floor since the tables took the most space. I guess it made for a crowded dance floor, but with our group, we definitely needed a larger space! The ballroom was beautiful though, especially with the lighted mirrors all around!

We did the after party on the 5th floor, which turned out great since hardly anyone was there, and it seemed like our own private party :)

Teplitzky's was where everyone had brunch, and it seemed like the perfect end to the weekend!

I absolutely loved Kristine and her mom! I have gotten a million compliments on my hair and makeup! She is professional, a great listener, and very creative! She knew exactly what I wanted, and was able to do two trials for me!

I did give 3 stars for responsiveness, but she does have another job and is currently planning her own wedding! She is fabulous, and my wedding would not have been as amazing if it weren't for her and her Mom's talents!

For wedding day, the Moms and I got the hair and makeup done. MOH and another BM only got hair :) Absolutely perfect! She also had the time to do eyelashes for some of the girls.

I love this vendor! She is very creative and listened to what I wanted. I've always admired her monograms she did for other brides, so I contacted her right away! She was very quick to respond, and got my monograms within 48 hours. I had a few changes, and she worked on them right away. I am so happy with my monograms that I've told other brides as well. Thank you Sarah!
