"Putting Martha Stewart to Shame" | Leah and Steve's Perfect Eiteljorg Wedding

by Sarah Bean, Eiteljorg director of catering and events | Sep 24, 2014

I first met Leah and Steve in January of this year. I had the honor of touring them through the event space during our Jingle Rail exhibit. I have to admit, it is rather hard to envision our ballroom with luscious floor length linens, pillars of luminous lighting and stunning chavari chairs when you have mountains of miniature buildings and an array of trains running throughout.

 




















Leah liked the indoor space but her heart was set on the outdoor gardens. Even with the snow covered trees and ice laden walkways I could tell she could envision exchanging vows in the warm afternoon sun and watching her guests dance the night away under the stars. So we set out to make that happen.

For eight months I worked with Leah, her mom, Steve and Jessica Dum to help create that vision she had always dreamed of. Leah needed zero guidance.  As she and her mom dove head first into personalizing the wedding she had one goal in mind. “I want to put Martha Stewart to shame” Leah said.  And that she did!


 
 
 
 


Unfortunately, the day of, with threats of rain and high humidity it was decided to move the dinner indoors. Thanks to proper planning we were able to convert the lighting to create an effect that gave the guests the impression of dining under a canopy of trees. 



I truly enjoyed working with Leah and Steve along with some of the industries finest – Kahn’s Catering, Jessica Dum Wedding Coordination, Alan Trisler/Audio Magic Entertainment, Empty Vase, Stacy Able Photography and Unique Heart Productions.

Leah and Steve are a match made in heaven and I wish them both many years of true marital bliss.
