Jessica and Fred sought an indoor venue with a garden-like feel. "We originally wanted an outdoor wedding but didn't want to risk inclement weather," says the bride. The couple was delighted to discover that the Morris House Hotel fit their vision perfectly. Jessica and Fred exchanged vows beneath a translucent canopy erected in the hotel's garden. The chuppah was adorned with curly willow branches and a variety of pink and white flowers. Chandeliers cast a magical glow over the ceremony space. Guests dined under the tent on a menu of filet mignon, tuna, and chicken provided by Jeffrey A. Miller Catering. "Sharing our first meal as husband and wife, surrounded by our families, melted my heart," says Jessica.
