Magnificent wedding at the Metropolitan Club

Recently I had the honor of planning a beautiful wedding for Alicia and Jerome at the prestigious New York Metropolitan Club.  It was such a treat to work with Alicia and her mother to create the perfect wedding in an absolutely stunning setting.

Not only was the venue perfect for this wedding, the location, adjacent to Central Park, made for some beautiful shots of the Bride and Groom on a warm, sunny day.  We were fortunate to have Jennifer and Charles of Maring Visuals on hand to capture all of the details.

The festivities began with a simple, beautiful ceremony at St. Malachy's Church in the heart of Times Square.  The classic elegance of the church was a perfect fit for this wonderful couple.

Following the ceremony guests proceeded to the Metropolitan Club for a evening filled with wonderful food, beautiful decor, great entertainment, and most of all loving friends and family.  As guests were entering the Ballroom they were greeted by the escort card table with an amazing display of glass vases filled with bright pink seasonal blooms.  At the end of the evening this table found another use as we displayed thank you boxes with cake and cookies for all of the guests.  Of course, I must thank Alpine Creative Group for their creation of the invitations and all collateral materials for the wedding, including the escort cards.

Guests were then escorted into the beautifully decorated ballroom that continued the them from the escort table onto all of the dinner tables.  For all of this wonderful decor we had the pleasure of working with the talented David Beahm.  To enhance the decor and create a warm glow in the room Bentley Meeker Lighting was brought in add this extra touch.

With a wedding this spectacular the cake must be equally as special.  Therefore, the Sweet Genius himself, Ron Ben-Israel, created a beautiful cake that perfectly captured all of the floral used in the room.  It was delicious!

To bring all of this to life I have to give special thanks to Hank Lane Orchestras who provided the spectacular entertainment that kept the dance floor filled throughout this magical evening.

Of course, the best reward I can have from any event is a happy client.  I have to share this wonderful note I received from the Bride's Mother.  This is why I love my job!

 Dear Shawn,

Alicia and Jerome's wedding was nothing short of amazing! For the past two weeks, I have been basking in the afterglow of my memories. Many have used the words, "elegant, sophisticated and majestic" in their comments. The flowers, music, table decor-all enhanced by the dramatic lighting, created that WOW! effect at the "palatial" Metropolitan Club in New York City. 

From Alicia's first meeting with you, she knew you were very in sync with the wedding she and Jerome imagined. Thank you for making this experience pleasurable and meaningful. You planned every detail with us beginning with the Nuptial Mass at St. Malachy's Church, to the festive celebration at the Metropolitan Club and on through the after-party!

I hope this is the commencement of many Shawn Rabideau celebrations!

Warm Regards,

Sue (Proud Mother of the Bride)

Until next time...
