5% Goes to God’s Love We Deliver!

After a gorgeous double church wedding, it’s no surprise that our wedding client Aynsley & Sean decided to choose God’s Love We Deliver for their 5% donation. It’s another Event that Gives Back!”.

An excerpt from their website:

God’s Love We Deliver is the tri-state area’s leading provider of nutritious, individually-tailored meals to people who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves. 

Founded in 1985 when one woman began delivering food on her bicycle to a man dying from AIDS, God’s Love now cooks 4,600 meals each weekday, delivering them to clients living with life-altering illnesses in all five boroughs of New York City, Newark and Hudson County, New Jersey. All of our services are provided free of charge to our clients, their children and to the senior caregivers of our senior clients, without regard to income, and we have never maintained a waiting list. Because we believe the combination of hunger and serious illness is a crisis, we deliver food within 24 – 48 hours of first being contacted. 

God’s Love We Deliver is a non-sectarian organization, providing meals with the strong belief of “food as medicine.” To that end, we employ a team of registered dietitians who individually tailor meals to each client’s specific medical requirements. God’s Love provides all services by employing a small but dedicated professional staff and with the critical assistance of nearly 8,000 volunteers annually.

Aynsley & Sean’s Brooklyn Heights Wedding!

On a sunny, Saturday in Brooklyn Heights, Aynsley and Sean married at Assumption Church followed by a reception at Plymouth Church of the Pilgrims. These two historic churches couldn’t have been more idyllic for all the festivities.

Following the ceremony, the newlyweds were showered with birdseed and surrounded by friends and family as they began their walk around the picturesque streets of Brooklyn Heights for photos.

The reception at Plymouth Church of the Pilgrims began with cocktail hour in the garden where Night Kitchen laid out a delicious Meditterranean spread, passed hors d’oeuvres and served the Bride & Groom’s signature cocktails (Pimm’s Cup and Dark & Stormy) while guests collected their escort cards and enjoyed the sunshine while a brass band played New Orleans style jazz.

The couple entered the reception hall to “Signed Sealed Delivered” by Stevie Wonder and joined their guests for a delicious dinner by Night Kitchen under towering branches and sweet peonies from Seaport Flowers.

After dinner the couple kicked off dancing by sharing their first dance to “She’s Got a Way” by Billy Joel.

The beautiful wedding cake was from One Girl Cookies and adored with flowers from Seaport Flowers.

At the end of the evening the Bride & Groom departed under a sea of sparklers by friends and loved ones. It’s magical moments like this make us so happy to do the work we do!
