The Marriage of Kristin Sollenne and Robert Malta

A rising culinary star as well as a Food Network Judge, chef Kristin Sollenne is a well-known cook whose experience and talent in the kitchen has led to her becoming a recognized name in food.  Having cooked for a range of professionals and celebrities, Kristin Sollenne has been recognized time and time again for what she brings to the plate.  As you can expect, planning her wedding was no different.  With time and attention given to the details of the event, Kristin Sollenne and Robert Malta put together a simply incredible experience that combined the best of faith, family, and good food.  

The day began at the beautiful Trump International Hotel.  Inviting rooms and large windows formed the backdrop for Kristin preparation.  Incredible views of central park formed the backdrop as a the bride to be prepared for her special day.  Simply radiant, the loving support and assistance of friends, family, and professionals came together to make Kristin shine.  Beautiful and ready for her wedding day, it was not long before Kristin moved on to the next event where she would see her husband to be.  

The wedding ceremony itself was held at the Church of the Blessed Sacrament.  Home to a congregation founded in 1887, the church features simply incredible architecture that is like nothing else seen in the city.  Ribbed pillars and vaulted ceilings reached towards the heavens as wooden pews provided plenty of seating for friends, family, and guests.  With large ornate lanterns hanging overhead, the church provides an incredible setting for the two to be wed.  

Wearing a fantastic dress from Bridal Reflection (Ines Di Santo), the bride turned every head in the aisles as she was walked by her father.  A handsome husband to be waited at the alter, a boyish smile on his face meant for no one else but Kristin.  Everyone gathered through the ceremony, watching quietly as the two kneeled and went through the ceremony.  The long trail on her dress was draped on the steps behind her, a classic and timeless look created for just this event.  Together, they said their vows.  

Representing the responsibility as well as the importance of the sacrament of marriage, the two became united in a place truly special to them.  A testament to faith and the unity of two families, the church was the perfect backdrop.  As the newly married couple waved, everyone cheered them on.  A brilliant smile on her face, Kristin was the image of an ecstatic bride.  So they would go onto continue the next chapter in their lives.  But first, there was dinner!  

A landmark brownstone in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, the ARTE Café is known for its signature Italian taste that is both welcoming and delicious.  As you can expect, any wedding dinner venue chosen by a celebrity culinary star would have to meet the highest standards out there.  And to that point, the ARTE Café did not disappoint.  Providing plenty of seating as well as outdoor availability during warmer months, ARTE Café set the perfect atmosphere for enjoyment and celebrations after the ceremony.  

The meal was dedicated to the newly married couple whose excitement and joy was infectious.  Along with excellent food, there were many toasts to the new couple, wishing them the very best as they began the next stage of their lives together.  All throughout the dinner, Kristin shined with a beauty that was priceless.   The night ended with incredible hospitality, togetherness, and love.
