A Waldorf Astoria Wedding

Wedding ceremony at the Waldorf Astoria Towers

How about a little touch of glamour to get your weekend started?  Jill and Ed are two of my favorite clients from this year whose Waldorf Astoria wedding was brimming with elegant and unique details.  To start with, they were married in a suite that was the the luxurious former residence of the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia.  I mean, if you’re going to do a small wedding, why not make it spectacular?  The opulence of the suite and its sweeping views of midtown were matched with a cozy intimacy which was perfect for the small guest list.

After the ceremony — officiated by none other than the fantastic Rev. Annie Lawrence — the couple were toasted with champagne.  Check out the bride’s cheeky nephew who enjoyed a glass (of cider) or two!

The reception for the wedding was a lovely luncheon held at Gramercy Tavern.  Of course you know that the food was spectacular, but have you seen the floral arrangements provided by the venue?  The table was overflowing with lush flowers and vegetation which, if possible, made the food taste even better.  Speaking of good eats, check out the cookies and cream cake from Amy’s Bread.  As noted by Jill, she and Ed purchased the cake from the Amy’s Bread location in Chelsea Market — the original home of the National Biscuit Company factory where the Oreo cook was invented.  Enjoy the pics!
