Last month I went down to The Plaza Hotel in NYC to photograph a wedding for David Tutera, celebrity party planner extraordinaire. To say that the wedding was unbelievably fabulous would be an understatement. David designed ceremony and reception spaces that were truly jaw dropping in their beauty and creativity. Here are some highlights, beginnng with the ballroom which David was most excited about.
The Plaza Ballroom already magnificent, became truly magical.
In the center was this incredible floral creation, simply a work of art, hanging from the ceiling like crystal chandeliers.
Speaking of chandeliers, each centerpiece had three of them surrounded by flowers and draped in crystals.
You can really appreciate the scale of the centerpieces. Here’s a photo of a David Tutera team member putting on the finishing touches. Note he had to stand on a ladder to reach the spot he was working on.
A closeup of the base of the centerpieces, wrapped in Swarovski crystals.
Check out this five foot tall wedding cake. At first, I thought it was covered in real flowers, but on closer inspection, I realized each petal was created out of sugar.
The custom-built head table was covered with silver leaf and trimmed with Swarovski crystals… see a theme here?
The bride wanted crystals and then more cyrstals. Crystals everywhere.
The ceremony took place in the Terrace Room under this extraodinary chuppah.
Finally, my favorite piece designed for the cocktail reception.
The whole design came together beautifully- the flowers, the lighting, the crystals- everything looked perfect.
A huge thank you to the whole David Tutera team, the caterers and their crew from Great Performances, and everyone at The Plaza. What a truly stunning event! We can’t wait to see what David and his team have planned when we work with them at The Plaza next May.
