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 Pérignon 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!
