N and T’s New York Palace Hotel wedding was the picture of NYC elegance. Stunning views of St Patrick’s Cathedral, gilded staircases and a gorgeous iron-gated courtyard were just the beginning of what this beautiful NYC venue had to dazzle the senses. Skyscrapers were the backdrop for their portraits and super sweet first look photos, which took place on the rooftop of one of the New York Palace Hotels luxury penthouse apartments. The gorgeous views we had for N and T’s portraits featured the Empire State Building and Chrysler building as well. Their ceremony was framed by the most gorgeous dripping crystal archway made to sparkle by the candles that hung along side them. The reception took place in the New York Palace Hotel ballroom, one of the prettiest ballrooms I’ve ever seen in NYC. It’s gilded mirrors, enormous oil paintings were perfectly complimented by the gorgeous, orchid and hydrangea arrangements by Floralies.
N and T were two of the kindest, easiest people to work with. Despite how much of a whirlwind a wedding day can be for the bride and groom, N and T didn’t seem to carry any sense of worry or stress. Their love and joy was contagious and spread throughout the room catching each of their family and friends in turn. Spending a lot of time with friends and family was important to N and T, who planned to have all their photos before the ceremony in order to be fully present for their guests from cocktail hour to the last dance. They were so at home in each other’s arms, seemingly unaware of all the eyes on them. It was such a privilege to be there to witness every moment of this romantic NYC wedding.
