Nothing quite says “Luxury NYC Wedding” like a grand event in a real-life New York palace. This is precisely what the team of vendors had in mind when they started planning their styled wedding shoot. Find out how it all came together directly from the Artvesta Studio photographers of the shoot:

Picture an iconic hotel that has been home to some incredible dignitaries and celebrities in the heart of New York City and you’ve got the Lotte New York Palace.

This hotel is stunning all year round! The landmark Villard Mansion with its gold-drenched ceilings and marble columns as well as the grand Madison Ballroom are dream locations for a luxuriously romantic fairytale.

The fairytale started with the dress by Galia Lahav, an amazing crown and oversized veils from Bridal Styles Boutique.

Our fairytale continued inside the Palace as event designer, Eva Madeleina created a magical, enchanted garden-like atmosphere with flowers and greenery. Clear Chiavari chairs with hunter green cushions for the ceremony perfectly completed the light and airy look to balance out the heavy greens.

The lounge areas were given a fairytale makeover with a Tuscan Rose sofa and an armchair and a gold glass coffee table so that the guests could feel like royalty.

To add a classy audible dimension to the ceremony, we invited NYC’s most fashionable and chic Jazz duo, Acute Inflections to perform for the couple and their guests.

It is absolutely possible to have a chic dream wedding even in the times of COVID and technology is definitely on our side to virtually connect with loved ones on such a significant day. The new virtual trend of hybrid weddings became very popular and in high demand among those couples, who don’t want to postpone their nuptials due to the pandemic.

Our event designers incorporated blush, white and gold to create the romantic, fairytale vibe. The laser-cut menus and blush charges with gold edges matched the romantic, luxury wedding theme perfectly.

Since current health precautions encourage everything contactless, we asked a talented calligrapher Joanne Day to create a grand escort card mirror featuring the New York skyline.

The gorgeous centerpiece of the reception was the dessert table featuring delicious cupcakes, sweet cookies and stunning tiered wedding cake from ‘A Simple Cake’.

The shoot was a spectacular, fun team project where all participating event pros gave every little detail the attention it deserved.
