Creative Mind for a Dream Wedding

Aside from presenting a memorable and most delightful dinner experience, another important element of wedding festivity is the space -- it depends on your scale of vision and desire to celebrate.

Non traditional indoor or outdoor venues, such as a raw art space, a turn-of-the-century townhouse, or a rustic barn, can be equally beneficial and challenging.

Transforming a large museum space into an intimate, small-scale wedding venue.

Turning a bare, open space into a dining or cocktail area with a feeling of intimacy and warmth surrounding  your loved ones is our favorite responsibility. It is all about careful, detailed planning for many months, including countless drawings and measurements during site visits. Often we encounter unforeseen circumstances, such as no running water or electricity and limited space at bare-bones venues such as 620 Loft & Garden. We may have to rent numerous stacking risers in order to create shelving for the hundreds of plates involved in a 9-courses Chinese banquet menu for 120 guests featuring dishes from Eight Treasures Soup and Trio Desserts.

At Saffron59, we perform well-executed transformations of small or large spaces into a dream come true, whether it is a Marrakesh caravan theme or an opium lounge, we enjoy the challenge of making the impossible happen. Not only our team makes special menu for our younger guests but also we carefully accommodate guests with allergies from tree nuts to garlic free restrictions. After making lists and checking them countless times, we make sure to cover everything from the kitchen to the garden, from the cocktail space to the dressing area, from making sure the guests are served to overseeing rental equipment delivery on-site. Ultimately, our crew at Saffron59 always has fun, because love what we do!
