On a cold night in New York City, Lindsay Lane Stall, her mother and some friends went to their favorite bar, Spotted Pig. As luck would have it, Peter George Falconer, who had recently moved to NYC, was there with a colleague. They all ended up chatting, and Pete mentioned that they were looking for someone to decorate their shop, Thom Sweeney, for Christmas. Lindsay, who was working for designer Daniel Romualdez, offered to take the job. During the week she worked on the shop, Lindsay and Pete began getting to know each other. By the end of the week, Lindsay invited Pete to a Christmas party at her apartment. He was too nervous to come alone, so they met up after the party. Soon after, they were a couple.
Two and a half years later, during the height of the COVID pandemic, Lindsay and Pete were living with her parents in New Orleans. The entire family had just spent the weekend at their house in Kiln, Mississippi. Everyone else had left when Pete and Lindsay walked out to the dock, and Pete proposed in a quiet moment with just the two of them. They called Lindsay’s parents to tell them the news, and somehow by the time they drove home an impromptu engagement party was waiting for them!
Like the engagement party, the wedding reception was also at a family home – this time in Lindsay’s grandmother’s backyard in the Garden District, which was transformed into an enchanted garden full of all the things the couple loved. The reception tent was draped in pink and was bursting with flowers and antique designs. Because Pete is from Northern Ireland, many of his family and friends were unable to attend due to the travel ban, so they made sure to add several touches that made Pete feel at home.
As they exited their wedding ceremony on October 10, 2021, an Irish band played and then led the celebratory parade to the reception. Part of the reception tent was devoted to Pete’s Pub, which featured walls draped with Irish tweed fabric, photos of Pete’s family and the 1999 Manchester United Champion’s League Final on TV. Of course, the pub was serving Guinness.
In addition to the Irish stout, guests also sipped spicy margaritas and Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé. These signature drinks were the perfect complement to a menu created by Patti Constantin that included an amazing raw bar, a pasta station and late-night fried rice.
The meal was perfect fuel for a fun-filled evening kicked off by the couple’s first dance to “To Love Somebody” by the Bee Gees. The newlyweds had a great time showing off their moves on a mirrored dance floor accented by disco balls and neon pink lighting.
After the celebration, the couple spent five days in Mexico before returning to NYC, where they live on Washington Square Park. Lindsay has her own interior design firm, and Pete is Retail Director for Thom Sweeney.
