Name: Margaret & Todd Muhlfelder

Wedding location: Abigail Kirsch at Tappan Hill, Tarrytown, NY

Best finds: Pink pashminas and flips flops to keep guests warm and comfortable; candy-filled mason jars with custom labels.


A word from the bride: Two days before our October 2nd wedding, the weather took a nosedive and the outdoor ceremony we had been planning was suddenly in question. We didn’t want our guests to freeze, but didn’t want to compromise our plans for a cliff-side ceremony. So I bought $5 pashminas from an NYC street vendor, and put baskets of them out for guests. They were a huge hit – everyone stayed warm and the seats looked gorgeous covered in a blanket of bright color.
