Lauren & Ari – Trailer, Mandarin Oriental, NYC
Despite the subzero temperature on Lauren and Ari’s special day, the atmosphere in the Mandarin Oriental was as cozy as they come. “We truly felt in the love in the room,” says Lauren. This may have been aided by the fact that it was Valentine’s Day, which played perfectly into Lauren’s early visions of her wedding day. “Red is my favorite color,” she expressed, “I always imagined I’d have red roses.”
Being very family and friend oriented, the couple hoped to create an experience for their loved ones that would feel personal and unique, but most of all, really fun! After a touching ceremony, everyone began dancing almost immediately. The musicians of Element Music, who always know how to get a party started, remarked that they hadn’t seen a group more eager to hit the dance floor.
We had such a wonderful time being there to experience the love and joy of their day. Again, Lauren and Ari, we wish you every happiness!
