Cocktail Party on the patio of Pony's Pad
Last week I was invited as a guest to get away with some of my favorites in the industry on a truly blissful retreat to Buttermilk Falls Inn (just about 2 hours outside of NYC). From the minute we arrived at Gabriella's Bridal Salon for breakfast prior to our departure I knew it was going to be a really special experience. Outside lined up on the street were 4 Mercedes Luxury Coaches (hosted by Go-Brilliant) ready to whisk us out of the city to the Hudson Valley for a day filled with nature, laughs, yoga, culinary delights, massage, conversation, and pure relaxation.
Upon arrival waiting for us was a farm fresh lunch prepared by Oliver Kita, that was absolutely fabulous! Followed by a full day in the spa. As the sun began to set we all gathered for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres on the deck of one of the houses, prepared by the amazing Cobblestone Catering, and continued into the evening to enjoy a tasting menu dinner on the bank of The Hudson River, with music by Elan Artists. The fabulous ladies of Matthew Robbins Design, created the most gorgeous table of candles and flowers stretched down the long farm table, that was just breathtaking. The night continued after dinner with Flamenco guitarists and dancers (Elan Artists).
It was an absolutely perfect get away with friends in the industry that continue to amaze me with their talents. These are all people you will want to get to know in one way or another for your upcoming events.
