A Waldorf Astoria Wedding

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.

Gramercy Tavern Reception

The food at Gramercy Tavern is always spectacular, and the table was overflowing with lush flowers and vegetation.  Speaking of good eats, check out the cookies and cream wedding 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!
