Feeling nostalgic, the Rainbow Room

I thought today I would post a blog version of throwback Thursday.  And, with the reopening coming this Fall, what better venue to showcase than the Rainbow Room.  So I want to share some photos from a wedding I designed and produced shortly before the Rainbow Room closed.  It was a beautiful space and, based on the drawings I have seen of the refurbished space, it will once again be a grand New York event space.

This particular wedding was special in that it was the union of high school sweethearts who reunited years later and married in a beautiful Summer ceremony.  From this overview of the ceremony you can really see the beauty of the Rainbow Room.

The Bride chose white and green as her primary colors and loved white calla lilies.  Therefore, I lined the aisle with large glass cylinders filled with her favorite flowers.

The Bridesmaids and flower girls each received different but coordinating bouquets in green and white.  Each bouquet used a single flower type of either roses, calla lilies or cymbidium orchids.  It was simple and elegant, perfect for the setting.

The Rainbow Room is such a beautiful space that I wanted the decor to enhance, not overpower it.  For the escort card table I displayed the cards on a simple bed of grass.

After ceremony we converted the ballroom in to the reception area.  Using a combination of high and low tables we turned the room into a gorgeous setting for guests to dine and dance the night away.

So there's my "Throwback Thursday".  It is great to remember a beautiful wedding and to look forward to so much ahead with the reopening of the Rainbow Room.

Enjoy and ...
