Courtney & Neil, Cipriani, NYC

POSTED BY Nathan Smith on 2016/03/08

On a crisp winter’s day, Courtney and Neil exchanged vows at the historical Grace Church, surrounded by family and friends. The ceremony was rife with emotion, starting the day with a deep warmth and beauty. This was a wedding that exuded a certain regality; the bride looked something like royalty in her full-skirted couture Zac Posen gown, and at every turn the ambiance was golden.

At Cipriani 25 Broadway – an Italian neo-renaissance masterpiece with soaring domed ceilings – everyone gathered for a wonderful celebration of Courtney & Neil’s love and commitment. Tapered candles towered over gilded tablescapes, and lush, white hydrangeas and roses added to the romance. A Sylvia Weinstock cake covered in roses stood at the center of the room, and Element Music effortlessly carried the mood of the day. By all counts this was a gorgeous and memorable wedding, designed and coordinated by Fête.

We were so glad to be a part of this beautiful couple’s day. Sending you much congratulations, Courtney and Neil!
