Clarissa shares, “It was important to us that we throw a really fun party for our guests. Community, friends and family are really important to us. Having so many of the people we care about all together in one place to celebrate our partnership was a gift.

We loved our venue, the New York State Museum. The weather cooperated and we were able to host our celebration on the terrace in view of the State Capitol and the Empire State Plaza – we didn’t need to set up a photo booth! I don’t have just one favorite moment. The whole celebration was incredible. And as we were warned, it went by too quickly. A couple of my favorite memories include dancing with both my Mom and my Dad during the father-daughter dance and posing for pictures with friends on the carousel.”

Stephen shares: “What a great way to have our special day! Clarissa and I worked so hard to set up this day and it was exhilarating to share our commitment to each other with our community of family and friends. I’ll always remember setting up for the photo of all our guests celebrating with us on the steps of the museum. We couldn’t have done it without the assistance of Frank the dog.

We kept the decorations simple. My sister made table numbers and, along with the flowers from our favorite farm, they really brightened up the space. I can’t believe how fast the night went and I’ll never forget sharing the first slice of cake with Clarissa – delicious (also the cakes looked great – WOW)! With assistance from our awesome DJ who made the trip up from Brooklyn, our nieces and nephews made the dance floor jump when they weren’t taking Polaroids of the party. It was a Wertloch party to remember!”
