A Sweet Wedding Treat

As we all know, weddings are big business in America. Yet, goods and services of all varieties are playing catch up to recognize the recently passed Marriage Equality Law in New York.

I did stumble upon a small, but “sweet,” instance of a wedding gift that embraced couples of all varieties. My office is near Rockefeller Plaza, and I have the distinct pleasure of wandering about a collection of lovely (generally high end) shops during my noontime errands.  Strolling on the Promenade of the plaza I pass wonderful stores including Anne Fontaine apparel, Movado Watches, and the Metropolitan Museum Store. Within a one block area of Rockefeller Center, a shopper is greeted by four Chocolate stores: La Maison du Chocolat, Jacque Tores, Godiva, and Teuscher.

Teuscher a Swiss chocolate company started 70 years ago, has a select number of locations around the world including two in New York (at Rock Center and on Madison Avenue).  Teuscher generously produces a variety of wedding related favors including the mix and match brides and grooms, pictured above,  with each figurine holding exquisite hand-made truffles. Walking into their store is like being surrounded by a glorious Easter basket year-round. There is a breathtaking array of chocolates, as well as amusing packaging options—perfect for bridal showers, gifts for welcome bags for out-of-town wedding guests, ceremony favors, or even a fun item for friends to bestow on newly engaged couples. Take a look next time you are in midtown!


Whether your wedding is an impromptu affair or has been months, or even years, in the making, I want to help you fashion a ceremony that reflects your history, philosophy, creativity, personality, and style – as individuals and as a couple.

Let’s craft a wonderful, meaning-filled ceremony that expresses the most significant aspect of your lives…one that recognizes the profound commitment you are making, as well as the sheer joy of the occasion.
