Upper Story by Charlie Palmer

When it comes to iconic Manhattan locales, the D&D Building is at the top of that list, so when renowned Charlie Palmer Group announced they would be opening Upper Story, a premier private event space in the stunning space in November of 2014, let’s just say we were smitten!

Offering breathtaking views from the 14th story with oversized windows and an incredible, expansive balcony, Upper Story will be a totally luxe + modern space for your next celebration. Perfect for showers, rehearsal dinners, engagement parties and weddings, the space can be split into two separate spaces (accommodating 80 and 100 guests) or can be combined to accommodate up to 180 for a seated dinner! The jaw-dropping venue will also offer couples state-of-the-art audio visual equipment as well as a bridal suite.

Fresh, modern and able to be transformed no matter your style, Upper Story is a brand-new must-see for NYC brides. I’m already thinking up an excuse to have my next party! For more information, head over here or check out Upper Story on Facebook. Happy planning, dears!

NYC Rooftop Wedding at the Nomad Hotel

Stylish doesn’t even begin to describe this stunning soiree at the The Nomad Hotel captured by L&L Style Photo. Not.even.close. I suppose that is to be expected when a Glamour fashion editor ties the knot, but seriously, it doesn’t get better than this. With a gown that will make your jaw drop and a couple that defines chic, this gallery is beyond.


From L&L Style PhotoWe’d love to share with you to one of our recent NYC weddings. Paula and Henrique live in Brazil but love New York and wanted to get married here inviting their family and friends to a wonderful wedding party which took place on the rooftop of the Nomad Hotel, one of our faves! Paula works in fashion as editor of Glamour Brazil and we were really excited to capture her wedding in style. The celebration was memorable, full of details chosen carefully by the wedding planners and designers. The bride wore a gown by Brazilian designers Patricia Viera and Atelier Maria Mendes and blue Valentino shoes. The overall look was so glamorous we were delighted beyond words… But more importantly is that they looked so happy together!

Top of the Rock Engagement Session in New York City

New York City creates the most magical backdrops for session like this one. And when those backdrops are paired with a gorgeous couple and a talented photographer like Abby Jiu, that’s when we hit SMP engagement session gold. It leaves us with a gallery that simply can’t be missed, and you can get lost in all the lovely here.

From Abby Jiu Photography….Katie and Mitch live in New York City and wanted an engagement session to reflect the great times they have had in the city. We chose the Top of the Rock for the amazing view of the beautiful city.
