Iconic Memories in the Making at St. Regis Hotel wedding venue
When the bride’s suite at the St. Regis is reminiscent of the iconic film “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, you know you’re in for a wedding that is filled with elegance and romance – a wedding as timeless as old Hollywood’s charm. We knew right away that Caroline was the kind of bride who loved thoughtful details and subdued sophistication.
Situated 2 blocks away from the iconic store, her suite had been redesigned under the strict supervision of none other than Tiffany & Co.’s very own design director. Every décor and piece perfectly placed with a story to tell. Much like the photoshoot we were about to do. Everything had to be authentic, and straight out of a scene from one of the loveliest stories ever told.
Every moment not to be missed, but to be captured almost cinematically, choreographed to perfection, and meant to be spoken of with fondness in the future. We could almost hear Mancini’s Moon River sweetly playing in the background. A perfect photo-op, combining the splendor of story-telling and the timelessness of a great story.
While the bridesmaids, groomsmen and other guests stayed put in their own suites, looking forward to the festivities, we headed out with the couple, James and Caroline in tow. Our destination was nearby Central Park, the Bethesda Terrace and Fountain. The grand staircases, stone works, arches, and the glorious fountain provided the perfect backdrop for the portraits.
While the church ceremonies were held downtown at the St. Francis Xavier, the St. Regis’ Rooftop Ballroom was the setting for the cocktails and reception. With vaulted cloud ceilings, adorned by dimmed gilt chandeliers, a reflection of European grandeur, some incredibly mouthwatering food, and a lovely couple worthy of their own red carpet, flashing lights, and splendid moments – it was a story waiting to be told. Like a legendary film, nothing less.
