New York Wedding At The Metropolitan Building

Tracey and Greg met in New York City while at a church gathering on the East Side. Tracey said “We were best friends from the very minute we sat down on our first date. We proceeded to drink about 45 cups of coffee that morning and have never looked back.” We love that!

With the amazing New York wedding venue, The Metropolitan Building as their backdrop, and some clever diy details we know you are going to fall in love with Tracey and Greg’s wedding. You can see all the photos in the full gallery, photographed beautifully by Trent Bailey Photography. Read on to hear more about their New York wedding.

Tracy had all of her bridesmaids in grey dresses , black shoes and her maid of honor in all black. Greg and his groomsmen in dark gray suits with billy button boutonnieres. Together as a whole they were one dapper looking bridal party.

From The Bride-
Our favorite part of the day was having our loved ones gathered together in the city where we fell in love. The ceremony was special since Greg’s father was the officiant. The church is beautiful and is meaningful in our relationship since it’s where we first started dating. The friends that stood with us are our nearest and dearest. We had a blast celebrating with everyone at the Metropolitan Building after the ceremony. It was truly a perfect day.

Tracey and Greg had such a fun relaxed wedding with many DIY details. The cake was baked and decorated by a friend and florals were done by three of Tracey’s mother’s friends. Other fun details were the beautiful calligraphy chalkboards as well as the playing cards both referencing the newlyweds’ last name: King. Clever … right?

If you’re looking for a unique way to celebrate getting married, The Metropolitan Building has so much to offer. They have been host to almost every kind of wedding under the sun. It’s such a different kind of place, it’s so romantic, and as you see has some fabulous places to take photos.

Mason Jar Cobbler/Crisp Recipe + Free Printable

Today we have one last thing to share with you from our DIY BBQ Engagement Party. Petal Pixie is back to show us how she made those adorable mason jar filled pies. Easy, cute and they are sure to be a hit at any celebration.

Besides these tasty treats, we also have the adorable labels that went with the tasty treats from Alexis June Creative. Of course they coordinate perfectly with our DIY No Sew Bandana Runner. So much fun!

Cobbler-
1 cup-Bisquick or Jiffy mix (I used Jiffy)
1 egg
½ cup sugar
½ cup milk (I used Almond milk)
Mix the jiffy mix and sugar together. Add in the egg and milk.  Mix well.

Crisp-
½ stick of butter
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup flour
½ cup rolled oats
Melt ½ stick of butter in small bowl.  In separate bowl mix the brown sugar, flour, and rolled oats.  Add the melted butter to the dry ingredients, mix well.

Assembly-
2 small cans of any flavor pie filling.
I used eight, ½ pint mason jars and set them on a cookie sheet to catch any spillage when baking.  You can even cover the cookie sheet with tin foil for easy clean up.  I used ice cream scoops for both the pie filling and the cobbler topping.  Doing this just helps make sure the amount used is consistent.   Put one scoop of pie filling inside the mason jar.  Then add a couple tablespoons of the crisp mixture.  Add a second layer of pie filling.  Then top with a scoop of the cobbler topping.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and bake for 10 min.  Turn down the oven to 350 and bake an additional 15 min.

Last but not least, we have the free printables from Alexis June Creative. You simply need to print out the template, cut it out, tape to a stick and place in your cobbler. Alexis made one for a peach cobbler, apple crisp and strawberry rhubarb pie. Print out the template by clicking here.
