The TODAY show wedding was a tale of two plazas: after marrying at Rockefeller Plaza, winning couple Leigh and Nick traveled uptown by Rolls Royce to their reception in the beautifully renovated Plaza Grand Ballroom. Here are a few of my favorite reception details:
Fabulous First Dance: Country singer Martina McBride made a special appearance, performing "I Just Call You Mine" for Leigh and Nick's first dance.
TV-Ready Bridesmaids' Outfits for $233: The bridesmaids may have looked like a million bucks, but their outfits actually cost much less. The sophisticated dark bridesmaid dresses from Vineyard Collection retail for just $188 and the platinum "Gloria" heels from Lela Rose's Unforgettable Moments collection are only $45.
Beautiful Butterflies: The couple's sweet cake, which was made by Betsy Thorleifson of Nine Cakes, was decorated with delicate butterflies.
A 100 Mile Menu: New York caterer Great Performances' delicious menu, which features foods that have traveled fewer than 100 miles to reach the reception, was a fitting choice for a celebration at the 100-plus year old Plaza Hotel.
