Just a week ago, I ventured to New York to photograph a wedding designed by David Tutera and his amazing team. Their art shone at the Metropolitan Club, where both the ceremony and the reception were held. This club, adjacent to Central Park and across from The Plaza, is majesty in Manhattan. And all of David’s ideas worked to enhance the beauty already present. The lighting used to highlight the ceilings, the elegant floral display with just the right degree of opulence, the candlelight thoughout, the crystals dripping from the centerpieces…. all a perfect match.


Here’s a peak of the wedding’s style and elegance…

The guests were welcomed by this stunning ball of roses with ivy.

The ceremony began in this splendid space at the Metropolitan Club. I love the red draping along the doorways and the beautiful paintings above. David accented the walk down the aisle with this amazing floral archway which the bride walked through on her way to the huppah.


And the huppah felt like a private sanctuary of flowers.

Music accompanied the guests, the bride and her attendants as they entered the space.

The guests then gathered in the Marble Room for cocktails and hors d’euvres.

Later everyone retired to the Metropolitan Club’s dining room for dinner and the remainder of the reception.

The wedding was truly elegant and sophisticated. The experience for the bride and groom and their guests was magical.

A huge thank you to the whole David Tutera team and everyone at The Metropolitan Club. What a truly stunning event! We can’t wait to work with you all again.
