Planner's Notes:

Alice and Nikolai wanted to keep their wedding intimate and personal with about 80 total guests, and having their long time friend officiate the union, they did just that. For the ceremony, instead of saying their vows and immediately sending guests off to the reception, they wanted a "mini party" in the park. No BS Brass band played tunes as Alice was escorted down the aisle with her father and upon saying their I do's, No BS led Alice, Nikolai and all of the wedding guests around the park with a full brass band parade. 

Upon entering Havana 59, guests were welcomed with traditional cuban cuisine and lively music to keep the party going. From Cuban cigar boxes as card holders to a temporary tattoo station with tropical prints, the look and feel of their reception certainly had chill party vibes. Once dinner service was completed, tables were moved, and Alice danced ALL night long
