Emily and Joe were married on August 22, 2020 in an outdoor micro wedding celebration at Celebrate Snug Harbor. This couple didn’t let the pandemic put a damper on their I Dos! With a bit of imagination, they found ways to rework their celebration to make it both safe AND sentimental. It was a very romantic, memorable day for all.
Why did you pick Snug Harbor for your wedding, was there any special reason?
Our wedding date was August 22, 2020. We picked Snug Harbor after our original plans were cancelled due to the pandemic. We live on the North Shore of Staten Island and were familiar with how beautiful the setting was and the excellent reputation Celebrate Snug Harbor has. We also had been guests to weddings there and were always very pleased.
Where did you wedding take place at Celebrate Snug Harbor?
The ceremony was in Tuscan Garden and the cocktail reception was in the Tented Pavillion.
Do you have a certain wedding theme? Color scheme? Special décor, favors for guests?
We opted to donate to 3 local non-profits in lieu of traditional favors in light of everything that was going on.
Did you have a wedding planner or any DIY elements?
Though we did not have a wedding planner we have to give a special shout out to Erin O’Keefe – the Catering and Events Specialist – she went above and beyond from the moment we first met with her right up thru the end of our reception!
What was your wedding song?
Our wedding song was “You and Me” by Dave Matthews.
Advice for future couples planning their weddings?
“If anyone is considering having a wedding, we highly recommend Celebrate Snug Harbor without any reservation! The setting, the food, the service, and all the staff involved were outstanding and beyond our expectations.”
We are so lucky to have delightful couples like Emily and Joe to work with at Celebrate Snug Harbor. A special thank you to their photographer Rita Sykes de la Pena who was on hand to capture every moment of this special wedding.
