Miriam & Zeyad; The Hotel Pierre; July 11
Miriam & Zayed had a weekend of non-stop partying after exchanging their vows a few weeks ago in a private ceremony with family. It started on Friday night at the Hudson Terrace with Tim Alan Smith & friends and family whogathered to celebrate with the couple before their Saturday wedding at the Hotel Pierre on 5th Avenue. When NYC wedding videographer Tim Alan Smith arrived, the couple was preparing to head to Central Park for some photos with Dante from Great Neck Photographers. The couple then returned to Hotel Pierre where they practiced their tango routine and helped family and friends get all the name cards set for their nearly 500 guests! All then gathered for family photos before guests arrived for cocktails. Miriam headed back to the bridal suite with her sisters to rest up for her grand entrance while Zeyad worked the room and excitedly exchanged calls with Miriam discussing their grand entrance. Dancers and music met Zeyad and his friends as they entered the ballroom to a standing/clapping crowd of family and friends and started what became a non-stop dance party all-night. Beautiful Miriam soon followed escorted by her father and met by Zayed where the festive dancing continued. Total Entertainment's Soul Connection/White Light relieved the Arabic musicians and the two alternated all night to provide a special and unique sound for the wedding night. Other highlights included toasts by Zeyad's two brothers and Miriam's brother, a tribute from Zeyad to his mother and the music and dancing. When Soul Connection announced that the party was ending in the ballroom, it really was just the beginning as guests moved to a new room designed like a NYC club where the party kept going until the wee hours of the night!
