The Wedding Album
Tammy Glucksman and Jason Gold
Peter White Studio
August 16, 2003
|On the day of the biggest blackout in history, Tammy, a social worker, and Jason, CEO of a hedge fund, nervously waited as their various wedding-day vendors, now referred to as “the dream team,” attempted to save a wedding scheduled to take place two days later. The couple’s Ritz-Carlton hotel room became the control center, where everyone was negotiating in pajamas. “We were working with thousands of orchids, fresh foods, and ice in the blistering heat, with no power or air,” remembers Tammy. Fortunately, Claudia Hanlin, their wedding planner, remained chill and relaxed—miraculously pulling the whole thing off. It was a second marriage for both Tammy and Jason, and they went all-out. “Tamatini” and “Jasotini” drinks were presented in martini glasses with glowing Plexiglas ice cubes, as guests feasted on a six-foot-long caviar bar. Florist Preston Bailey transformed the raw studio into four party areas with distinct looks: the all-white, ethereal ceremony featured trees and branches; the vibrant cocktail hour was wild and tropical, with intricate blocks of ice lit from below; dinner was intimate, featuring long tables and colored lights; and following the main course, Bailey converted the dining room into a club, with a D.J. and dessert bar complete with fondue, s’mores, cupcakes, and mini ice-cream cones.||
