Emily & Patrick, The Rainbow Room, NYC

POSTED BY Rebecca Walker on 2016/05/05

It looked like rain on Emily & Patrick’s wedding day, but just as the couple rendezvoused in Central Park for their first look, the sun broke through the clouds. Walking hand-in-hand, they smiled all the way through the park to the Plaza – the place of their engagement – to share a few more special moments together before the ceremony.

Emily & Patrick exchanged vows at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, where they were the first couple to be married since the landmark recently re-opened after restorations. With it’s soaring domed ceilings and stained glass windows, it was truly a breathtaking setting for such a special occasion. Following the ceremony, the newlywed’s heritage was celebrated with a bagpipe-led recessional through Rockefeller Center to the Rainbow Room. New Yorkers and tourists alike clearly enjoyed the display as much as we did, taking photos and applauding Emily & Patrick as they passed.

As always, the Rainbow Room offered a beautiful setting for celebrating. The sun was just beginning to set as everyone arrived, casting that perfect, golden hour glow across the room that we love so much. Sidekick Events teamed up with Frank Alexander NYC to plan and design an elegant and refined event. White hydrangeas and ranunculus filled the tabletops, and crystal accents complimented the beaded strands that hang from the Rainbow Room windows.

Emily & Patrick’s special day was full of so many unique and notable moments. We were so thrilled to be a part of it!

Wishing you a lifetime of happiness, Emily & Patrick!
