The Wedding Party

Claudia Hanlin and Jennifer Zabinski of The Wedding Library
Last weekend we participated in The Wedding Party held at the New York Palace hotel and organized by Claudia Hanlin and Jennifer Zabinski of The Wedding Library. It was certainly the party of the year! Our friends Colin Cowie and Darcy Miller gave wonderful presentations and then the brides were free to visit the numerous vendors at the hotel. We were very proud to be part of the event and truly enjoyed meeting all the brides who stopped by to speak with us. The day concluded with a fashion show featuring bridesmaid gowns from The Wedding Library and bridal gowns from Vera Wang. Here are a few pics from the fun day.

An inspiring table from One Girl Cookies. We loved the color palette of these delicacies, the mini whoopee pies and the Lucia bars were our favorites!

Dom Perignon Wedding Luncheon

I recently attended a fabulous lunch introducing the new Dom Perignon Champagne for weddings in the magnificent private event space on the 21st floor of the LVMH office tower on East 57th street. The room offered breathtaking panoramic views of the city. After an introduction by Colin Cowie and a brief speech by Dom Perignon exec about the launch of the new bridal special edition champagne, the who's who of the industry sat down to a lunch prepared by chef Daniel Boloud, who was seated near me to my right opposite Sylvia Weinstock. I was seated next to Gotham & Hamptons Magazine Editor in Chief Samantha Yanks and Ed Chapman, President of Marchesa and brother of Marchesa co-designer Georgina Chapman.

I love the exquisite L shaped tables decorated with calla lilies in mirrored vases and large glass 'bubbles', don't you?

Dom Perignon Wedding is a collection of 12 bottles of Dom PĂ©rignon Vintage 2000 cased in a beautiful white lacquered box. The box also has an additional 13th bottle, which features the names of the bride and groom engraved on a silver label. If you save the toasting flutes, why not the bottle as well!
