Heather is the daughter of avid bird watchers. Dillon was a boyfriend who was eager to impress his future in-laws. So what did he do? He proposed during a bird walk through a Maryland state park on a chilly December morning. The couple chose Pier Sixty as their venue because it’s “modern, clean, and provided the necessary space for our large wedding,” says Heather. “It also offered a great view, fresh air, but with the peace of mind of an indoor venue.”
Modern, bright colors and with an outdoorsy feel.
Heather: Raw Seafood Bar
Dillon: Filet Mignon
“Our first dance,” recalls Heather.
“Great food and great wine and champagne,” says Heather. “Everyone has raved that it was one of the most fun weddings they’ve attended.” Heather’s advice for bride’s considering Abigail Kirsch: “Don’t worry about anything – they will make sure everything is perfect.”

Guests enjoyed passed hors d’oeuvres (including our Butternut Squash Risotto Cakes, Smoky Cubanos and Shrimp Tacos) while mingling and enjoying the auction “doodles” from celebrities, athletes, and other well known faces. Some of this year’s doodles included everyone from the late James Gandolfini to Betty White to Jane Lynch.
After dining on an assortment of dishes from our Little Italy Station (complete with Meatball Sliders, Mozzarella en Carozza , and White Lasagna) Authentic Soft Taco Station and Americana Carving Station, the crowd was treated to an incredible performance by the legendary Gloria Gaynor and American Idol ‘s Constantine Maroulis.
The proceeds from the successful evening benefited the St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters which supports a network of charitable programs that provide a broad range of services for those in need, including the provision of food, clothing, shelter, and related social services for the poor.
Abigail Kirsch was honored to caterer The Knot’s Annual Gala this year at The New York Public Library. The event, designed by Your Bash’s Brian Worley, had an edgy Hollywood theme with everything from metallic couches and mirrored side tables from Taylor Creative and Luxe Event Rentals , as well as modern white monochromatic floral tabletop designs by David Beahm.
Rather than a formal style of dining, for this special event, we opted to do a more interactive dinner for guests by serving dishes in phases. We first started with our passed hors d’oeuvres, including our twist on Blanketed Franks with a trio of sauces and Sweet Potato Dusted Crabcakes with chipotle aioli.
During the next phase of dining, we opened our stations which included a Taco Station (featuring a Ginger Glazed Duck Tacos, Truffled Wild Mushroom Tacos and Grapefruit Tequila Shrimp Tacos) as well as our Harvest Pear Station (with a Honey Lavender Pear Salad, Roasted Balsamic Pear Halves, and Gorgonzola Brulee with Pear Sage Biscotti). This phase also included more hearty passed hors d’oeuvres like our Noodles & Sushi, Turkey Sliders in mini to-go boxes, and a Savory Short Rib Sweet Potato Pie in a Jar. And we can’t forget our wildly popular Mojito & Limoncello Granita intermezzos!
No party is complete without dessert, so in keeping with the spirit of The Knot, we served “Wedding Cake” Ice Cream Sandwiches (in flavors like carrot cake and chocolate espresso) along with some seasonal treats like our Mini Chocolate-Dipped Apples and Apple Cobbler Bites.
The evening was a wonderful success and we couldn’t have been happier to participate! Check out more photos and the full list of vendors on The Knot.
