The lively couple knew that cookie cutter was not for them, instead highlighting details they love such as unique spaces like their beyond amazing rustic industrial art deco reception space & a trolley to get the bridal party around. NYC favorites were high on the list as well, stopping at the ever iconic NY based Shake Shack for a bite, visiting a knotted rope art installation in the park, and of course feeling the NYC love while getting cheered on by park guests as they go! As the perfect end cap to Melanie & Sandro's personalized day, in lieu of a traditional wedding cake, the vibrant couple served their guests hand scoped Italian ices, which is simply perfection on those summer days!
