Romantic Gramercy Park Hotel Wedding

I love New York! I might be biased since this wedding takes place in my old neighborhood, but in my humble opinion it doesn’t get better than a Bride wearing Amsale at the Gramercy Park Hotel. The talented Sasithon Photography was behind the lens snapping up a gallery filled with family tradition and classic New York moments that’ll have you scrolling for more here!

From The Bride…We wanted a classic and romantic New York wedding where everyone felt like they were at a great dinner party with friends and family. Our wedding took place atop the Gramercy Park Hotel which was a perfect and stunning venue. We loved the indoor/outdoor feel of the rooftop with the lush, green garden and the wraparound terrace that was lined with candlelit lanterns and candles. The venue has a lot of world class art that created pops of color as well as a light bulb room which added a lot of dimension to the space. To match the vibrant décor we worked with flower designer, Denise Fasanello, who created beautiful flower arrangements and amazing bouquets of cream, light pink and green that complimented the space beautifully.

We also had an incredible photographer, Sasithon Pooviriyakul, who truly understood our vision for the wedding and captured so many beautiful moments of our wedding day. To recognize Kai’s family’s Chinese tradition we had a tea ceremony right after the wedding ceremony. The parents and elders were served cups of tea while giving well wishes to us through gifts of gold jewelry and money. It was a special time to recognize the family members that will continue to guide and support our marriage. Food was an important component for us because we love to cook and eat. So many of our favorite moments has been traveling to new cities or finding a new restaurant in the city.

We decided on a four course meal focused on seasonal local ingredients. We also loved our signature drink, a blood orange jalapeño margarita which was perfect for summer! The tables were set up during cocktail hour with a dramatic reveal of the seating which was dotted with beautiful flowers and candles. It truly was the best dinner party of our lives!

Multicultural Wedding at the Harold Pratt House

For a couple who simply wanted to wed in the city they call home, there seemed no better place for Ein Photography to capture their love than Central Park. The hustle and bustle against the park’s quiet beauty made for the ultimate background, and these captures are only the beginning. More pretty and bouquet goodies by Sprout right here.

From Ein PhotographyJoyce and Davis work in the creative field in the city. Even though we were in the middle of the busiest city in the world, they were laid-back, and truly enjoying the day. Since their nature of being easy going, we did the portrait session in the Central Park. The nature and the quietness in the city complimented their personality.

From invitations to her traditional dress, there were a very subtle mix of Chinese and American cultures. She had her red traditional dress and shoes tailor made for the wedding day, and the lion dance at the end of the reception was the just exciting for everybody.

New York City Wedding at the Saint Regis Hotel

When I first sat down and opened this gorgeous wedding, my head was all over the place. I was in busy mode and my to-do list was top of mind. But that all changed when I hit play on  Tweed Weddings‘ heart-grabbing film. At that moment, all that mattered was watching By Yena Designs‘ spectacular New York City wedding unfold. It’s a true testament of the importance of wedding cinematography, and definitely worth a few minutes of your busy Monday. See more here.

From By Yena DesignsI’ve been a floral and event designer for the last 5 years and recently started my own company, By Yena Designs. My husband is a landscape designer and we met when I was the events director at a large floral design company in downtown Manhattan.

We chose to get married in New York, a special place for us having met in the city and having both worked in New York for many years. We also go engaged in Westchester.

We wanted our wedding to reflect both our tastes for modern design but within a classic New York ballroom. We chose the Saint Regis rooftop ballroom as the perfect spot for our classic New York wedding with a modern twist.

I designed and created all the floral décor for our wedding (except my bouquet! which my dear friend and floral designer colleague created for me), designed and printed all paper elements including the whole wedding invitation suite, and chose the linen and napkin colors to compliment the flowers and the lighting design.

We chose purple/indigo as our wedding color and wanted to use as many shades of purple and blue that we could. I had all the bridesmaids choose their own dresses in any purple or blue color they liked. They all wore, Amsale, Monique Lhuiller Bridesmaids, and Jim Hjelm.

The flowers were of course my favorite part of planning the wedding! I chose to use mostly white flowers with pops purple in varying shades. All different shades of purple like lavender from the Ocean Song Roses, dark purple Tulips, and even the bi-colored Picasso Callas.
