Julia had a large wedding almost 200 of mostly out of town guests. She wanted to have an event to welcome the travelers to New York City and to the wedding in the best possible way. Julia’s now-husband grew up in Brooklyn and the couple used his Brooklyn roots to decide on a venue. Her vision came to life and this is what she had to say about her welcome party at Deity:
When we came to Deity, I knew the moment we walked in that it was our venue. The Beautiful architecture of the building, the indoor tree with the lights, and the warm and welcoming staff made Deity the obvious choice.
My favorite memory from the welcome party was the speeches. Two of my best friends, the best man, and my husband’s sister each gave beautiful and touching speeches about our relationship with them and shared memories.
To me, the decorations, the food, and the drinks were the most important part. Deity made it easy because we had a wonderful, detailed planning meeting where we went over everything. After that, I knew that they would have everything handled and I had nothing to worry about, and I was right! Everyone was well fed, And definitely, no one left thirsty!
