Gotham Hall Wedding

Kathryn and Chas' wedding had two ceremonies!  With both ceremonies and dinner taking place in the same room at Gotham Hall, it took a team of the best creative professionals to execute it all so smoothly and beautifully.  Coming from very different backgrounds, it was important to the couple to pay proper tribute to their Indian and Chinese cultures and religions.  We started the day with their Hindu ceremony.  By Yena Designs created a striking gold chiffon mandap with bright pops of orange dahlia and magenta phalaenopsis orchids draped elegantly from the corners.  The aisle was artfully decorated with petals inspired by rangoli designs.  The bride was so happy when she saw the room, she shed a tear!  With the conclusion of the first ceremony, guests were ushered upstairs for coffee, tea and dessert, as the room was changed for the Catholic ceremony.  The floral palette was a clean white with a few subtle touches of pink.  To honour Kathryn's grandmother, Yena placed a few pale pink lilies, her favourite flower, into her bouquet.

One of my favourite personal touches was the Indian rangoli vine surrounding the Chinese "double happiness" character.  Both elements were used separately on the invitation suite, but on the wedding day they were combined and used on the menus.  I loved the symbolism of bringing both families together that day.  Guests dined under the grand dome at tables dripping with orchids from Yena.  With romantic draping from Dazian and dramatic lighting from Bentley Meeker, the room was breathtaking!  They partied the night away to the incredible sounds of the Blaire Reinhard Band.  I am so proud of how everything came together for Kathryn and Chas that day and could not have done it without the amazing team involved!

Harvard Club Wedding

Romance was abundant at this wedding at the Harvard Club of New York City.  When I first met Maggie and Steve, it was just so sweet how they looked at each other and gave each other tender touches.  Pull on your heart strings kind of stuff.Honouring the memory of Maggie's Father was one of the first things we had discussed while planning.  A blue embroidered patch with her Father's college football number was sewn into her lace Rivini gown.  Maggie's Mother, siblings and Steve all carried embroidered handkerchief's with the same number.  Her Father's class ring was tied onto her bridal bouquet.  After the wedding, she placed her dried bouquet at his grave.

As guests entered the Harvard Club, they were greeted by a stunning escort card arrangement by Blush Designs, with towering branches, calla lilies, roses, orchids and hydrangea arranged in a clean contemporary style.  I am of the theory that you can never have too many candles, and the way the mass of pillar candles glowed throughout their ceremony in the Harvard Hall was magical.  Instead of a traditional ring pillow, the rings were held in a hollowed out book with a heart indentation and a magnetic closure.  The book they used was "Elements of Style", a book that both their Fathers loved and resided on both Maggie and Steve's bookshelves at work.

The Harvard Club is a grand venue with soaring ceilings, lots of dark wood and ornate chandeliers. Maggie wanted floral decor that would compliment the space with a contemporary and elegant feel.  Blush Designs created rich red and orange arrangements in wide conical vases that almost made it look like the flowers were floating off the tables.  These were surrounded by red floating candles in pedestal vases that brought such a romantic and warm glow to the room.  The energetic sounds of the Groove Society had the dance floor packed (and me tapping my foot) the entire night.

Maggie grew up in Pittsburgh where the cookie table at weddings is a must have tradition.  We offered the Pittsburgh smiley cookie from Eat'n Park and the New York black and white from Glaser's Bakery.  A great snack for guests on the way to the after party. Thank you to Moss & Isaac for sharing these images of their lovely fall new york wedding.
