The Wedding Party

We are still on cloud nine from the amazing time we had at The Wedding Party last weekend so I just had to do a dedicated blog post about it! We had the pleasure of being a participating vendor at a wonderful event sponsored by The Wedding Library at the New York Palace Hotel and what an event it was! We had the joy of meeting brides alongside a prestigious group of vendors and colleagues and the result was truly a unique event and experience. Here are some images we received over the weekend, photographed by the talented Shane Carpenter from Elan Artists.

Here’s the lobby of the gorgeous New York Palace Hotel. This hotel definitely has that ‘Old World New York’ feel to it and would be a perfect space for a classic wedding or even dramatic, opulent affair as well!


 The event kicked off with a presentation by an illustrious group of speakers, including Darcy Miller from Martha Stewart Weddings and Sylvia Weinstock, the queen of cakes.


And of course the lovely and gracious hosts of the event: Claudia Hanlin and Jennifer Zabinski

 We were very fortunate to be located in a great room with some other very talented vendors. Here’s Steve and I at our table in the Garrison room.

We were able to meet the fabulous ladies of Chestnuts in the Tuileries and their georgeous work. I absolutely adored their bouquets and arrangements which were nothing short of luxury in themselves!

We also met Sarah Jenks of The Breathtaking Bride, which is a company that specializes in holistic weight loss for brides. It’s more like a healthy nutrition and therapy program than an actual “diet”. Her table was so pretty I walked in thinking she was an event designer/stylist!

 There were several cake artists around but I’ve always had soft spot in my heart for Sylvia Weinstock’s creations. The cake she had on display definitely lived up to my expectation. It was soft, romantic and the flowers were incredibly realistic up close!

The day ended with a dramatic and luxurious runway show presented by Kleinfeld who featured a range of beautiful gowns for all the brides in attendance.

We had such a  great time and it was an honor and privilege to meet all these wonderful brides in the company of so many talented colleagues and friends.
