They will be married next Thursday at Gramercy Mansion, and award winning chef Jerry Edwards of Chef’s Expressions will roll out his new line, Social Expressions at their throw down party. House of RedBird, (that’s me) will be providing the photo booth with boutique themed costumes, photo favors and, of course, multiple shooters, including the amazing TIM HINSCHE! . . .I will do my very best not to micromanage.
But last night it was all about the rehearsal dinner. Twenty five of their closest friends traveled to the home I share with my parents in Westminster. We noshed on amazing hors d’oeuvres (artfully created by my sister Nancy and Chris) , pepperoni lasagna (made by one of Little Italy’s own offspring and House of RedBird associate, Joe) decor compliments of mom and dad who just have the gift, incredible florals provided by my cousin, Sallyn and my mom-mom who love Andy and Sherry all the way from Jacksonville, FL . . . .and an amazing cake provided by our family’s cake lady, Linda Lee of LL Cakecrafters. (yes, I will share her . . . just email me for her phone number ). . . she’s old school and her cakes are absolutely pieces of art.
Andy and Sherry are so good together. They are playful, active, funny and yes, slightly irreverent. Perfection in my book.
I love him so much. He’s my brother. I love her so much. She’s my sister.
