Rooftop Wedding with a Gorgeous View of the New York City Skyline

A rooftop wedding on it’s own gets all the wedding oohs and ahhs. But when said rooftop has a view of the New York City skyline like this one? Romance is taken to a whole new level my friends. Plus, with Ang Weddings and Events at the planning helm, it’s sure to be a stunner event. See more captured by Belathee Photography in The Vault!

From Ang Weddings and EventsChelsea and Kevin were married with an intimate outdoor ceremony on the rooftop of The Surrey Hotel on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. As guests stepped off the elevator to the penthouse level, they were greeted by a mirror welcome sign with hand calligraphy, and the sounds of a string trio. Lush white and green floral arrangements in white urns added a romantic feel to the stunning New York City skyline. The bridal party walked down the aisle to “At Last” by Etta James. Guests were provided with little “toss me” sachets of dried lavender to shower the married couple with good luck as the ceremony ended, to the sound of “Here Comes the Sun” by the Beatles. Chelsea looked so elegant in her embroidered Monique Lhuillier gown with a cathedral length veil. She held a timeless bouquet of peonies and ranunculus, with a few touches of dusty miller.

The reception followed a few blocks away at Daniel. The guests enjoyed Maine Peekytoe Crab Salad with Coconut and Lime, Pineapple, Celery, Fennel Pollen Tuile, followed by Black Angus Beef Tournedos, Porcini, Pickled Ramps, Swiss Chard and Green Peppercorn Sauce. For dessert was alternating Pineapple, Brioche Feuilletée, Lingonberry Confit, Bay Leaf Ice Cream and Vietnamese Single Origin Dark Chocolate Mousse, Sandalwood Smoked Cocoa Nibs Crémeux, Biscuit Macaron. When you can’t decide between two delicious desserts, why not serve your guests both! Being at a 2 michelin starred restaurant, we had to bring Chelsea and Kevin into the kitchen where all the magic happens for some portraits.

The music transitioned from an instrumental jazz trio during the meal to a DJ for dancing later on. The bride and groom’s first dance was to “I Only Have Eyes for You” by The Flamingos. At the end of the celebration, guests took home canales from Daniel as wedding favours. It was such an intimate and joyous celebration, filled with much love from family and friends! Captured so beautifully by Belathee. I particularly loved the beautiful save the date, invitation suite and day of wedding paperie that Written Word Calligraphy designed for Chelsea and Kevin. The gold foil on ivory was so sophisticated and classic, and there is nothing like modern calligraphy to keep it fresh and unique. An escort card table of hand calligraphy cards in metallic gold sent my heart aflutter.

Meghan and Sean’s love story began in high-school but fast forward 10 years and you’ll see their long-awaited wedding day that was nothing short of perfect. They prioritized involving their 5-year-old daughter in the celebration, and she even hand-painted their table numbers made with love. Photographed by Ashley Caroline, this is one gallery you don’t want to miss.

From Ashley Caroline PhotographyMeghan + Sean’s day was very special. Together, they have the sweetest 5-year-old daughter, Molly. It was evident throughout the day that she is not only the light in their lives but in so many close family and friends as well. Molly painted the table “numbers” and was so excited to show everyone her adorable artwork. It was a lovely personal touch. The day was beautiful from the bride + groom table full of candles to the greenery covering the tables and the portraits at golden hour. The bride’s J. Crew dress stunned everyone. It was a lovely day with the best trolley ride and I couldn’t wait to share it with you. My favorite moment was towards the end of the night when the groom serenaded the bride. He sang a song and played on his guitar and it was the sweetest moment.

From the Bride… Sean and I met freshman year of high school in keyboarding class, and although we would both later admit to an immediate mutual crush, we didn’t start dating until the summer before our senior year of college. We had run into each other at a dive bar one random, fateful night; I was there with my sister, who had recently gone through a breakup and Sean had gotten dragged out of bed by a friend in search of love. Sean was wearing gym shorts and black mid-calf socks under sandals – I thought no one had ever looked better. I’ll never forget how happy I was to see him, a happiness I have felt seeing him thousands of times since. Sean swears that he was the first one to text after that night, and I’m certain that the opposite is true, but we both agree that the summer that followed was one of the best of our lives. After 7 years of friendship and 3 of dating, we entered into our next and greatest adventure: parenting. Molly was born on a warm, sunny day in the middle of September. She has Sean’s eyes, my smile and both of our love for laughter and music.

Our wedding day was also on a warm, sunny day in September, 5 years later. Our wish was to have a day that was just bursting at the seams with love, and I am very happy to say that that wish was granted. We got married in the church where my Father grew up, a church where we said goodbye to my Grandpa earlier this year. Being there as a family again, celebrating a birth of sorts, was a beautiful, emotional experience. We took our pictures in Bayard Cutting Arboretum, where my brother’s wedding pictures were taken, and then headed over to the reception in our trolley. The party was held at The Snapper Inn on the south shore of Long Island, in an open air gazebo overlooking the water. I will never forget the feeling of the breeze drifting in and out as we ate dinner at our candlelit table and looked around at 200 of our favorite people, wishing we could hold onto these treasured moments as they passed by relentlessly. Although there were many moments I loved, it is easy to say that the highlight of the night was listening to Sean play “This Must be the Place” by Talking Heads. He sings and plays so beautifully and it was a true moment in time, seeing him share that talent with the people we love.

While we were on our honeymoon in Italy I said to Sean that the greatest gift we could have given to our friends and family on our wedding is to have a night where they can forget about work or obligations and just simply celebrate love. The greatest gift to us was looking around at these wonderful people, people who have been there for many milestones in our lives, and seeing the pure joy they felt in being there, being present, and frankly, tearing UP the dance floor. We don’t get to experience joy that way on a daily basis and it is such a beautiful reminder of how much we need love and need each other. It was a bit difficult coming back to reality after a night like that, but to steal a line from our wedding song, “I guess we’ll just begin again.”

From Lauren Fair Photography… Mary Catherine + Chris’s elegant summer New York wedding was perfection – such a stunning, clean color palette, incredibly in-love bride + groom and portraits in one of my favorite locations at Brooklyn Botanical Gardens – the desert greenhouse. Even though it poured rain, they were all smiles and kept the focus on all the joy surrounding them with the ones they love!

From the Bride… What was most important to Chris and I, was that everyone we loved could be there – Given that our entire extended families are local, we made it a black-tie New York City affair, and split the day between our two native boroughs, Manhattan and Brooklyn. First Presbyterian is one of the most beautiful churches in Manhattan, and was where my parents got married three decades before us. Brooklyn Botanic’s Palm House is the most incredible ballroom I’ve ever been in, and it served as the perfect backdrop for the clean, elegant, and whimsical atmosphere that Oleander Florals brought to life that day. What we will always remember about that night was dancing, jumping, singing and sweating, immersed in a sea of people that we couldn’t live without.
