A party that happens to be a wedding allows for all sorts of non-traditional elements and playful bits. Donna, along with her designer Jane from D’Lish Intimate Catering, pushed the boundaries at every turn.

Opening with my favorite of all the details from Donna and Jimmy’s wedding- the Cake. Konditor Meister definitely outdid themselves with this wild animal print cake. So so so fun!


Taking a step back in time. The ketubah that Donna and Jimmy signed prior to their chuppah ceremony.

On to cocktail hour, drinks galore and check out the awesome zebra print linen below.

Multiple small glass containers held orchids in the lobby and cocktail space.

Time for the reception. A peak from above, looking down onto the table arrangement. Loving the gold linens, which match the Chiavari chairs.

The centerpiece, orchids in a clear vase. Candlelight completes the look.

The head table had its own centerpiece arrangements. Love the peonies.
