At Long Last

Bianca Kosoy, 40, and Lauren Rodolitz, 32

WEDDING WISHES: As a public-relations guru, Rodolitz is used to planning big events, while Kosoy (in the hat), executive creative director for Equinox, is a professional aesthete; their Labor Day wedding, therefore, must be exactingly executed. They picture a raw space with a high-low feel (“like expensive Champagne in rusty buckets,” says Kosoy); good food and wine; and a “cool chuppa, no flowers.” In fact, “nothing too ‘wedding,’ ” insists Kosoy, though Rodolitz wants enough alcohol to get her bride on the dance floor.

BUDGET: $50,000

THE PLANNER: Event designer Colin Cowie (212-994-2000)
HIS VISION: Cowie suggests Blue Hill at Stone Barns (914-366-9600; prices upon request) in Pocantico Hills, N.Y. The ceremony would take place at dusk under a chuppa dressed with hanging candles; guests would perch on ottomans as Rodolitz walks a serpentine aisle (“less conventional, more intimate,” says Cowie). Dinner, a Tuscan-inspired feast that includes magnums of Italian wine, would be served family-style at two long tables. For dessert: individual-size wedding cakes, with dancing to follow, D.J.-ed by Donna D’Cruz (; prices upon request). That’s when the real fun would start: “Vodka, coffee, and chocolate shooters to keep the dancing going!” says Cowie. “Can I get an invite?”

THE COUPLE’S VERDICT: “He nailed it,” says Kosoy. “We especially love the long wooden tables and family-style dining.”
