Real Weddings | Michelle + Patrick | The Ballroom at Church Street
March 6, 2012 by Puff 'n Stuff Catering | comments

Today we are featuring Michelle and Patrick’s New Year’s Eve wedding held at The Ballroom at Church Street, and we can’t stop raving about this wedding!  Their gold and red decor dressed The Ballroom to it’s finest and the subtle “ball drop” theme brought all of the elements of this night together. From the elegantly hung centerpieces of crystals and rose balls to the trays of champagne & sparkling cider, every detail was executed to perfection.

In true Puff fashion, Michelle and Patrick worked with Special Event Planner Heidi Brice to design a custom menu that perfectly complemented their personal tastes, style and the glamorous occasion. The evening began a breathtaking candlelit ceremony, high on the Ballroom’s atrium steps. With the antique stained glass windows as a backdrop, the mahogany chairs and romantic florals popped! The festivities started off with delicious butler passed hors d’oeuvres such as mini turkey & cranberry wellingtons, purple potato cubes, and Parmesan spoons to tease their taste buds. Dinner service followed with an elegant three-course meal featuring a selection of perfectly paired wines. The celebration hit a sweet note with a 2012 Balloon au Chocolat dessert station presenting a unique dessert that doubles as entertainment; check out the video below to see this exciting dessert in action. And as the ball dropped at midnight, a larger-than-life screen displayed the Times Square festivities while guests enjoyed late night snacks and a confetti cannon sounded to ring in 2012. We can’t think of a more perfect way to start the new year!
