From the time I was a little girl reading Eloise with my mother, I have always dreamed of being a part of the Plaza’s timeless story. This December, I was welcomed to the CPS Events Team as a Catering Sales Coordinator, making my wildest dreams a reality. A few weeks in, I was able to host my first wedding celebration; Angie Bocancea and Keith Bolognese’s Wedding Dinner. It was the perfect first event for me to do on my own; first a Central Park Ceremony and then a 36-guest dinner in the Terrace Foyer.
The bride and groom arrived
around 2pm with their photographer to take pictures before the
ceremony. After escorting them around the Plaza for photos, they departed to
their intimate ceremony at the Bethesda Fountain and Terrace in Central Park.
Angie wanted a very personal and small celebration of their vows, and their
dinner in the Terrace Foyer fit the bill perfectly. Two long tables set up for
their guests with minimal winter floral decorations, flame-less candles, and
handmade gifts she brought in, all added a wonderful personal touch. Her
customized playlist, close family and friends attending, and even handmade
desserts brought in by a friend made the evening a perfect and personal dream
Being able to personally escort the bride through her breathtaking photography session, set the table with her handmade decorations, and see the couple's delight as they were surrounded by family and friends was truly heartwarming and satisfying. The fact that I could help make her big day as she had always dreamed it to be, made me realize that this is truly the job for me. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for me at The Plaza.
