This is going to be a lengthy posts, so if you are not a reader, just stop right here, and go see Gayle and Russ immediately to book your wedding (and/or bar/bat mitzvah). You will not regret it.
For those of you who like details, here you go....
My wedding was last night (11/05/16) and as I walked out I said to Russ, "I can't wait to write your review." The whole entire day (and year up until then) was in a word, perfection. When my family and I first walked in to TBT, and saw the decor and beautiful sanctuary, I was extremely interested. When Gayle came out to meet us and give us a tour, I fell in love. Everything she told me was exactly what I had been looking for and could not find on Long Island. The food she described was styled and similar to the trendy food I love to eat in NYC. It was really crazy how everything Gayle said was everything I loved. Needless to say, we booked it the following weekend. Leading up to the wedding, they were BY FAR the easiest vendor with whom we worked. Gayle and/or Russ answered any questions I had within minutes via text/email/phone call and it didn't hurt that Gayle and I oddly have the same taste in EVERYTHING. Yesterday was magical thanks to Russ and Gayle. Everything was seamless and flawless. Many guests commented that our ceremony was the nicest they had ever been to. Rabbi Wiesenberg was amazing and funny and made our ceremony so personal. Cantor Applebaum enhanced the ceremony with a beautiful voice.
The food was amazing. Just amazing. Our guests at the cocktail hour kept stopping us to tell us how delicious everything was (fan favorites: Kobe hotdogs, sliders, brick oven pizza, zucchini noodle bolognese, and lamb chops, duh). The cocktail hour room is HUGE and felt spacious, yet warm and intimate.
The ballroom is SUPER modern with a huge white dance floor. The service was incredible and I heard from multiple tables how attentive the servers were and that they kept the drinks flowing the whole night (shout out to Tamara - I love you!).
Best part about my evening (besides, like, the wedding itself) was Harriet, my best friend/bridal attendant. She was SO helpful and organized and knew everything I needed before I needed it. Unreal.
Gayle, you know how I feel about you. Russ, you are awesome as well and both of you made last night BEYOND WORDS amazing and our families and I cannot thank you enough for the BEST NIGHT EVER.
