Ariyana's Sweet 16 Cruise on The Cornucopia Destiny in Hoboken, NJ
Ariyana's family chartered Cornucopia Cruise Line's Destiny yacht and invited her friends and relatives to set sail from Hoboken's 14th Street Pier and celebrate her special day.
Blue was the color of the evening, as Ariyana's two elegant dresses, cake, décor accents, and full ballroom uplighting all reflected the hues in the water. Hurricane Productions videographer Markus Robinson filmed the highlights of Ariyana's cruise, while photographers captured fun candids on the dance floor, as well as formal shots with the breathtaking New York City skyline and the Statue of Liberty as the backdrop.
DJ Nate Hawley and MC Robert Padovano got the party started and provided entertainment throughout the entire event. Guests of all ages danced the night away to the favorite tunes of Ariyana and her family. Hurricane's lighting director Nick Nittoli arranged for Twin Totem lighting, uplighting, and a "Name in Lights" display to set the tone for the celebration, while a custom photo montage of the guest of honor played during dinner. Ariyana's friends and family were also able to enjoy a fun open-air photo booth to create some memories of their own.
