Kay Jewelers

Missing Diamond     kay_new_logo

I cannot say enough good things about Kay Jewelers.  They may be a chain store, and they’re not Tiffany’s BUT, this weekend I LOST THE DIAMOND in my engagement ring.  I just looked down and it wasn’t there.  I was out and about in the city all day so it could be ANYWHERE.  The next day I went into Kay and they said, “No problem!  As long as you’re up-to-date with your inspections, we’ll give you a new one.”  Thank goodness I go every six months to get my jewelry cleaned and inspected.  I should have the replacement in six weeks.  SO SCARY!!

Photo Booth

Smile!!!  We’ve got a Photo Booth!  We’ve booked The Modern Photobooth for all 5 hours of the reception, and there will be props and unlimited photos for everyone!  The photos that come out of this thing are really high quality AND you can also use their iPad to have them sent directly to you, so you can post them anywhere, right away!  FUN!

DJ and MC Booked!

Opera Steve

We finally booked a DJ and an MC!  We are proud and excited to announce that our reception will be presided over by Opera Steve from Silverfox Entertainment Group.  We took the drive out to Long Island today to meet with our officiant, Monsignor Alesandro to finalize our ceremony readings and passages, and decided to use the time out there to visit with photographers, Meet Steve, and a check out a limo company.  It was a wedding-centered jam-packed day, and it was a lot of fun.  We are both happy with our choice and can’t wait to PARTY in May!

Hotel Block Booked

Homewood Suites

After much deliberation we have finally booked a block of rooms for both, the night before and the night after, at Homewood Suites by Hilton in Carle Place.

We secured a great rate of $140 for the Studio Suite with a king-sized bed, full sized sofa-bed, and full kitchen; and $155 for the One Bedroom Suite, which is the same , but also includes a wall and door that divide the bedroom from the living room for privacy.

There are One Bedroom Suites with two queen-sized beds as well but they are not part of the room block and they cost about $209.  The hotel also has a couple of Two Bedroom Suites available for about $299, but the cost is almost the same as two One Bedroom Suites which gives you more privacy options and an extra kitchen.

We chose this hotel for a bunch of reasons.  First of all, it is only about 5 minutes from Westbury Manor, 10 minutes from St. Brigid’s Church and 35 minutes from JFK Airport.  Second, it is BRAND NEW.  It was just built this year, and opened in March, all new construction so everything inside is in fantastic shape.  They also offer a ton of amenities like free hot breakfast, free dinner with beer and wine, free internet, free newspapers, an indoor pool and jacuzzi, 24-hour convenience store, 24-hour fitness center, 24-hour business center, and they even allow pets, have a BBQ area and a putting green!

I am requesting that everyone book their rooms as early as possible because they will sell out and all the other hotels in the area are both further away and more expensive, so if you know you’ll be staying the night of the wedding and/or the night before, BOOK NOW!  Why wait?
