Jewel Toned Rainbow Room Wedding

Rachel and Brian wanted a formal New York City wedding and found the perfect place at the iconic Rainbow Room at Rockefeller Plaza.  The stunning views of the city and the gorgeous art deco details in the historic venue made it a sure thing as soon as they saw the space.

Rachel and her mom love flowers and orchids in particular.  Naturally I thought of my good friend By Yena Designs, who happens to be an orchid whisperer.  She sources the most divine orchids and creates such stunning arrangements with them.  As soon as guests stepped off the elevator to the 65th floor, they saw the empire state building and were greeted with a lucite escort table filled with flowers.  The Fourteen Forty escort cards were burgundy with hand calligraphy by Mary Ellen in bright white.  The chuppah simply took everyone's breath away with the floral masterpiece that Yena created dripping with orchids.  As guests moved to dinner in the Rainbow Room, the palette moved to deeper jewel tones with a sea of romantic pillar and votive candles.  

Their signature cocktail sign was a "well-stocked bar".  Their beloved beagle Duke was there in spirit with a photo of his head on a stick that everyone loved using with the photo booth.  In lieu of a formal guestbook, the couple provided each table with a bottle of wine that guests signed with markers.  With each year's anniversary, they will open the bottle with the corresponding table number.  What a lovely way to celebrate!

Central Park Zoo Wedding

Carly and Xavier were looking for something unique.  Perhaps an outdoor wedding or a view of the New York skyline.  We managed to find them both of these things at the Central Park Zoo!  They had a small ceremony at City Hall and invited their dearest friends and family to party with them at the zoo.  A zoo isn't immediately what you think of as wedding worthy, but the Central Park Zoo is a special place.  The warm brick columns and the lush green ivy, make it truly beautiful.  Carly wore a stunning lace jumpsuit from DVF and carried a lush bouquet of deep red peonies.  

Guests were invited to cocktails around the sea lion pool and the tropics and penguin exhibits were also open for exploration.  As a tribute to her father, Carly had Street Beat Brass Band play New Orleans jazz favourites and the signature drinks were the New Orleans Hurricane and Bloody Mary.  

For dinner and dancing, the tent was filled with hundreds of string lights and greenery.  Verde Flowers created lush floral arrangements in creams and blush, with striking black vases for the long tables.  After a delicious meal from Creative Edge Parties, we had beautiful cake from Nine Cakes and a cheese display for guests to choose from.  The cake toppers were batman and batgirl, a costume Carly and Xavier had dressed up in one year for Halloween.  The bride used the same cake knife to cut her cake as her mother and father used for their wedding.  It still had a bit of icing left over on the edge! 

This was such a fun celebration to be part of.  Thank you to Moss and Isaac for these gorgeous images.
