It doesn’t get any more classic than a New York City black tie affair at The Plaza Hotel. It just doesn’t. And this stunner planned by Ang Weddings And Events has set that classic style bar even higher. Beautifully timeless and wonderfully elegant, every image captured by Judy Pak is nothing short of a dream, and you can see them all here.
From The Bride…Omar and I met in New York City and on our first date, we wound up talking for hours and we closed down the restaurant! We decided to get married at the Plaza and wanted our wedding to have a classic New York feel, but most importantly we wanted our guests to have a fun, warm, and intimate experience.
Ang Weddings and Events created a seamless event and selected the most talented vendors that were a dream to work with. It was so inspirational to work with so many phenomenal women that were truly experts in their fields. The invitations were classic letterpress and we incorporated an old photograph of The Plaza in the envelope liner. Omar found an elephant graphic which we used on the menus, escort cards and even printed on the sugar cookies which were our wedding favors. Verde Flowers created arrangements in shades of corals and creams interspersed with hundreds of candles to complement the gold tones of the Grand Ballroom and Terrace Room. Ron Ben Israel’s cake with matching flowers was breathtaking. Judy Pak captured our wedding so perfectly with a clean and romantic style that is truly timeless. McKenzie Miller’s videography was brilliant and we received a short clip of our wedding to watch while we were in South Africa on our honeymoon. The Plaza accommodated our every request and the entire team at the Plaza was comprised of the most consummate professionals. We had an interesting progression of music through the evening. A harp and flute duo from Elan Artists played classical music for the ceremony. An Indian trio consisting of a sitar, tabla and flute from Elan Artists played for the cocktail hour. Our DJ Play Something Good had the entire dance floor packed with their clever mix of 80s, 90s and top 40 music for the dinner reception.
