From the very beginning, Sarah & Seth knew that they wanted a modern wedding that really reflected their personalities. Their goal was to have our guests walk into the wedding and immediately feel like everything they saw represented Seth and Sarah. The couple planned the LEFTBANK ANNEX wedding with our coordinator, CHRISTINA, while they were living in New York City.
Sarah & Seth chose the LEFTBANK ANNEX as their venue because it felt like a perfect mix of New York and Portland and they loved the idea of getting to customize the space. Black has always been Sarah’s favorite color so staying true to who she was, she made black and white the primary color palette. As an interesting accent, she added chevron patterns and stripes. The couple hosted their Ketubah signing, Jewish ceremony and reception at the space.
Food was the number one priority for this couple. When picking the menu, they made sure to feature as many of their favorite foods as possible, including a mashed potato bar at the cocktail reception! Their favorite desserts are ice cream and cookies so instead of traditional wedding cake, they decided to have SALT & STRAW serve ice cream out of their cute striped cart. ART OF CATERING also created a milk and cookies bar complete with Oreos, Seth’s favorite cookie. Seth is a huge fan of hip hop music so the couple decided to weave that throughout the reception. Rap lyrics were featured on the ice cream, donut and bar menus and the first dance 112’s “Only You” featuring Ma$e and The Notorious B.I.G. – which was also quoted on the save the date. Sarah & Seth hired two awesome DJ’s who basically turned the reception into a giant dance party that lasted all night– exactly what they wanted!!
