Rebecca & Trevor: Parker Meridien Ceremony

I was going through some past emails today and I came across an email from a client who walked down the aisle earlier this year. It made me miss her! From the first day that Rebecca & Trevor walked through our door, I was in love with them. They wanted something small and romantic, and since most of his family was going to be traveling from England they also wanted it to be in a hotel to make it easier for people.

After looking through a few venues we decided on the Parker Meridien.  They fell in love with the small and intimate ballroom…with killer views! Rebecca’s one hesitation was the room used for ceremonies. The bright orange curtains, industrial style chairs, and bright lighting scared her a bit. She wanted the room to feel soft and romantic, but still have a clean and simple look. I assured her that we could achieve that!


Although their color palette was grey and purple, we decided to keep the ceremony different and go all white. Lighting, rental chairs, and fabulous florals by Jessy at Fleurs,  helped transform the corporate ballroom into the romantic setting the bride had imagined.


My favorite detail were the mercury lanterns hanging from the white draping. It created the light and romantic candlelight effect that the bride wanted without using open flame, which the venue didn’t allow. Oh, the wonders of LED lights!

    Beautiful work! Were you able to transform the other ballroom with views? Would be very interested to see the “before” and “after” pictures of that ballroom. With the amazing central park views, I’m sure the “after” pictures will be very stunning!
