Valentine’s Week is the perfect opportunity to share one of my most elegant weddings. I had the honor of planning and coordinating a traditional, classic New York City wedding at The Yale Club of New York.
Elegant Affairs arranged the beautiful bouquets and centerpieces.
The ceremony took place at the Church of the Incarnation.
The Yale Club does a superb job preparing delicious cuisine and the artistic presentation of each course was consistent through dessert. After a formal dinner, the music of Manhattan Swing had guests on their feet all evening long.
Other nuptial treasures:
The bridal luncheon was at The Rainbow Room. The bride gave her attendants the softest monogrammed bathrobes. The boxes were beautifully wrapped in paper the bride selected at Kate’s Paperie. The bride hired a masseuse to pamper the bridal party in her suite after the luncheon.
The World Yacht cruise was a fun and festive alternative to a restaurant for the rehearsal dinner. Out of towns guests and New Yorkers alike enjoyed the boat ride with views of lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty.
Thanks to Laura Chavis of Wedding of Lorelei for opportunity to plan this wedding. Laura was expecting her second child as we started planned this wedding. Sharing the planning process was an excellent collaboration.
Thanks to Christian Oth Studios for sharing the beautiful photography.
Happy Valentine’s Day Catherine and Adam!
