For the Prospect Park Picnic House, the couple sought to create a warm and inviting ambiance for their wedding celebration. They contracted Universal Lights and Sounds to decorate the ceiling of the venue and provide entrance decorations. The company delivered a stunning array of lanterns and light bulb strings, which were strategically placed to create a soft and romantic glow.


The lighting design perfectly complemented the natural beauty of the park's surroundings, creating an enchanting atmosphere for the guests. Outside the venue, Universal Lights and Sounds also provided additional lighting to help guests easily locate the entrance and to create a welcoming ambiance for those who wished to mingle outside. The result was a cohesive and magical lighting scheme that transformed the Prospect Park Picnic House into a truly special and memorable wedding venue.


The day's festivities commenced at 2:00 pm with the arrival of the wedding planning team and the delivery of decorations. As the venue transformed into a picturesque oasis, the stage was set for an unforgettable celebration.


In the middle of the table, handcrafted centerpieces, each a testament of Samantha's ingenuity and passion for creating unique and meaningful décor, stand tall. The centerpiece, a stunning arrangement built around a graceful white birch tree, features clear globes hanging from its branches. Each globe is filled with words of support and crystal gemstones, where guests can take home as a special favor.


Beyond their beautiful appearance, Samantha's centerpieces carry a deeper purpose. Each centerpiece holds a carefully selected note of encouragement, a message of hope and inspiration designed to uplift and motivate its recipient. These notes may include words of wisdom, affirmations, or simple reminders of love and kindness.


As guests gather around the tables, the sight of these enchanting centerpieces welcomes them. The combination of natural elements, sparkling gemstones, and heartfelt messages creates a warm and inviting atmosphere that sets the stage for a memorable event. These centerpieces transcend simple decorations; they become symbols of unity, friendship, and the shared journey of life.


With the planning and setup nearing completion, Samantha sought the expertise of Tenacious Makeup for her makeup needs. The outcome was astounding, resulting in a radiant and flawless look.




The ceremony began at 4:30 pm with the arrival of family and friends. The atmosphere was filled with anticipation as the bride and groom made their  way to the altar, accompanied by the soothing sounds of a singer and pianist.


The wedding ceremony was a harmonious fusion of traditional elements and personal touches. Mariela Hill officiated the ceremony, where Samantha and Ibrahim exchanged heartfelt vows, expressing their profound love and commitment to one another.


Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed a delightful cocktail hour as the couple captured precious moments during their photoshoot. As the sun began to set, everyone gathered for the cocktail and reception, which took place in the elegantly decorated reception space in the Picnic house.


The reception was a vibrant celebration, filled with laughter, dancing, and heartfelt toasts. The couple's first dance to Ed Sheeran's "Perfect" was a touching and romantic moment.


Throughout the evening, guests enjoyed a delicious plated dinner, followed by a sweet surprise - a piñata cake filled with desserts and the couple favorite items . As the night wore on, the dance floor came alive, with guests dancing to the energetic beats of the DJ.


As the clock struck 10:00 pm, the party came to a close, leaving guests with cherished memories of a truly special day. Samantha and Ibrahim's wedding was a celebration of love, laughter, and the promise of a lifetime together.
