A black tie affair

The other week, I went to a beautiful black tie wedding for my husband's business partner and his wife at the Alpine Country Club in New Jersey. Below are some photos of the impressive touches including a towering wedding cake, a grooms cake shaped as a Patron bottle with a golf ball cork, massive flower arrangements and chandeliers for center pieces, monogrammed lights on all of the valances in the hall and golden tableware.


  1. I love, love, love the chandelier centerpieces! What a cool idea. Of course, you and Rafe are darling as usual. One of the cutest couples, evah!

  2. wow it's exactly how my wedding is going to look :)

  3. Incredible! Those sorts are so fun to go to. You and R look awesome as usual!

  4. Tara, you look beautiful! And I love that flower arrangement. I hope the music was good - that's always a tough element to get right.

  5. Hey everybody!

    Sorry to go off topic a little bit here, but I got permission from Tara to share this with you and I think you’ll really find this quite useful and fun. Raise your hand if you don’t like spending less to get a great experience in a great city. Since I can’t see any raised hands, I’m pretty sure everyone here likes to save, which is why you might be interested in LivingSocial. Every day, LivingSocial will offer an amazing deal (we’re talking up-to-90%-off amazing) for local restaurants, bars, spas, theaters, and more.

    The thing is, people generally don’t like to go to these things by themselves…and now you won’t have to! This Wednesday for example, when you buy a Living Social deal for Mendocino Farms with your Visa card, you score a free deal for your friend!

  6. So gorgeous! I love the special touch groom's cake and can't help but wonder if you were able to talk to people on the other side of the table - what with the fabulously huge centerpieces.

    Love you in blue, T!
