One Loft, Three Ways

Julie and Ian

The Talent
Event design by Peggy Calabrese Special Events. Flowers by Elizabeth Ryan Floral Design. Catering by Brooke Whiteside of Creative Edge Parties.

The Plan
“The couple knew it was going to be a big dancing crowd. The most important thing was to create a really fun environment and to lay it out so the dance floor was centrally located—that way, no matter where you were seated, you felt like part of the party. We also wanted to emphasize the fact that you were surrounded by the beautiful New York skyline.”

The Nuts and Bolts
“I recommended square tables because I thought they would work with the bride and groom’s clean, modern style.”
E.R.: “They chose the Bellini chair, which is a great look for this space and a departure from the ballroom chairs you see all the time.”
B.W.: “We met at different times of day to see where the light would hit, so it would be flattering to the bride and the wedding party, and to make sure the guests wouldn’t be blinded. After that, it was really all about what layout would give guests the best view during dinner.”

The Décor
“The color scheme of the wedding was purple, white, and black. They wanted something really spare. For the centerpieces, we filled rectangular vases with manzanita branches on a bed of wheatgrass, and surrounded them with black Japanese river stones and silver-leafed votives. I put these beautiful floor-standing candelabras made of branches with hanging crystals and Dendrobium orchids on each side of the chuppa, and draped the windows so there was a nice background for the ceremony.”
