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!

Elegant Beach Wedding in Bridgehampton, New York

If this elegant seaside soiree was around when I was getting married, It would have inspired my entire wedding. Seriously. Because to me, this gallery is perfect. With a coastal yet sophisticated vibe (not to mention one seriously cute pup), every image beautifully captured by Charlotte Jenks Lewis defines beach chic, and you can see even more here.

From The Bride…The first thing we knew we wanted for our wedding was to have it on the very same beach in Bridgehampton, New York where we got engaged in May 2012 and where we often walk our dog Noodles. We found a perfect beachfront venue just a few feet away — Outdoor ceremony on the beach! Ocean views from the dance floor! — and we quickly locked it down. Shortly thereafter, Hurricane Sandy absolutely decimated the place, leaving our venue a sad construction zone. But with some regular monitoring of the construction progress (read: useless stressing), it was repaired and looked better than ever by the time our wedding day rolled around. And thankfully, the weather fully cooperated that day, so Mother Nature and I are back on good terms.

For our decor, we went with a fall theme for our October wedding with mostly ivory and eggplant colors. We had an amazing and creative florist who indulged all of my crazy ideas — like having edible elements in the centerpieces, branches hanging from the ceiling, and turning the entrance hall into a full-on forest. Her end product was 100 times better than my original “vision” so trust your vendors!

Our main priority for the cocktail hour and reception was probably the food! When I told the caterer about my love of all things miniature, he went above and beyond by making mini versions of all our favorite foods. Mini burgers paired with mini beers, mini tacos paired with mini margaritas, you name it and it was mini. We still talk about the food!
