Aldrin and Mike were married at The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers in New York City on February 16. “When we first arrived to the Lighthouse, it was exactly a year prior to our wedding day,” Aldrin said. “The sun filled the gorgeous venue, and the views of the Hudson were absolutely breathtaking. Mike and I had to book it!” The ceremony was officiated by the couple’s good friend, who also is a stand-up comedian. “Our guests kept complementing us on how different and personal it was,” he said. “We all laughed and cried — it was perfect.” They also placed three bottles of wine into a wooden box to open on their first, fifth, and tenth anniversaries to symbolize their unity. The reception started with their first dance to Beyonce’s “Love on Top.” “It was a great transition to what became a huge dance party,” Aldrin said. Tables were decorated with green hydrangea and pink orchid centerpieces, along with an navy blue embossed menu card at each setting. The newlyweds’ best advice? “Take a 15-minute breather in the middle of your reception – together and alone — to soak in the day,” he said.

Lainey and Eric were married at Fourth Presbyterian Church followed by a reception at The Twentieth Century Club in Pittsburgh, Penn. on Mary 25. Since they are both architects, they chose their venue for it’s charm. “The ballroom . . had many unique elements, including a stage, speak-easy style seating areas, and a mezzanine to overlook the whole party,” Lainey said. ” And to make it even better, the ballroom had mint colored accents to go along with our color scheme! The bride wore a strapless a-line wedding gown, accessorized with a statement necklace and earrings, while her bridesmaids wore peplum dresses, accessorized with clutches. Attached to the bottom of Lainey’s bouquet was her “something old,” which was her great-grandmother’s vintage handkerchief. We loved how it was so bright with pink peonies, yellow craspedia, orange ranunculuses, and sage green dusty millers! Guests were escorted to their seats with paper pinwheels. To their surprise, they found favor bags waiting for them filled with goodies. “The one moment from the wedding day that we enjoyed the most was our first dance,” she said. “We danced to “The Way You Look Tonight” – a cover by Maroon 5. That dance was the first time where it felt just like us during the day, and it seemed like time slowed down for a few minutes.” Just wait until you see the cake! It was decorated with rainbow sprinkles and a Lego topper.
Besides asking these 12 questions before you book your venue, be sure to consider your wedding style. Is it rustic, fit for a nature-inspired ranch, classic, fit for traditional hotel ballroom, vintage, fit for a historic landmark, modern, fit for a contemporary loft, or preppy, fit for a waterfront country club? And don’t forget there’s plenty of others you can search for in your area and compare their reviews and ratings from newlyweds too!
