the story

“On May 20, 2017, I ran the Brooklyn half marathon while Justin cheered from the sidelines. Our plan was meet at Nathan’s in Coney Island for hot dogs (my favorite) after the race. Instead of hot dogs, he surprised me with a ring! Justin also had all of our family and friends meet us at a bar near our home to celebrate,” says Annie. “We chose Abigail Kirsch for our wedding because they catered a friend’s wedding that we had attended a few years prior, and we were blown away by the food. When we tasted the food at The Skylark again, we knew our guests would be really impressed.”

the style

“Our wedding style was city chic, in fitting with the vibe at The Skylark,” says Annie. “With the amazing city views, we didn’t need to bring much in order to achieve the classic Manhattan look we were going for.”

memorable moment

“When it started to rain, my hopes of an outdoor cocktail hour were dashed. However, the staff at The Skylark were easily and seamlessly able to move everything inside and made the cocktail hour as amazing as I could have imagined,” says Annie. “We were also able to still get some amazing photos on the roof in the rain!”

what guests are saying
