Reception venue/catering: Abigail Kirsch Stage Six at Steiner Studios
What do you really say about the best venue I’ve ever seen? From start to finish, Abigail Kirsch’s Stage Six really delivered the wedding of my dreams! We worked with Eric Hoffman, the event director of Stage 6, and he really worked in everything we wanted. During the wedding, we were completely attended to by him personally, and my dad (who is a COMPLETE perfectionist), had all his needs met. Everyone said the food and service were absolutely impeccable.

The Martha Stewart calla cake has always been my favorite and what I envisioned my wedding cake to be. Unfortunately, its a logistical nightmare! Those clear columns separating the layers were custom and cost upwards of $60, which to me, just isn’t worth the cost for an otherwise free cake [Abigail Kirsch has their own baker deal with the cakes]. Sooo, it looks like we’ll be taking inspiration from the master, April Reed, and go with something subtle yet beautiful. We’ll probably end up doing white layers with green ribbon and yellow flowers, but who knows, that could all change in a week.

These sell fast, but usually you can find the cutest set of vintage mushroom decorations from Small Stump that would be PERFECT for my friend Christina’s wedding…I can see them all over her cake, or decorating little homemade cupcakes….[I was lucky enough to snag a bag for myself when they were still available!]
