Inspired by the clean palette and timeless feel of one of the most elegant NYC venues - THE YALE CLUB, New York wedding photographer TANYA ISAEVA worked with planner & designer SENSE OF MOMENT to create this beautiful shoot. Tucked away less than a block from Grand Central Station, THE YALE CLUB holds 22 floors of space for indoor and outdoor events. This shoot was held in the Grand Ballroom, a crisp white and romantic soft blue room that is surrounded by windows with classic city views. The bright white moulding and millwork is opulent but softened with cascading blue window coverings and textiles throughout.
This backdrop provided most of the inspiration for the vendor team. The stationery by MACARON & WHITE was designed with early spring and the Yale campus in mind by incorporating hand-drawn dogwood flowers into a letterpress calligraphy invitation. Light blues and pinks, navy tassels and vintage postage, and a Victorian monogram rounded out the design. The stunning bridal gown from VIERO BRIDAL offered a bit of retro glam romance with its lacy, scalloped bell sleeves and plunging sweetheart neckline. Florals by THREE NOTCH FLORALS incorporated spring’s breathtaking offerings - anemone, butterfly and traditional ranunculus, tulips, and soft greenery - all crafted into hand-tied bouquets with naturally dyed silk ribbons, bud vases, and a dramatic foam-free installation. Subtle luxury was captured in the three-tiered cake by SARAH & SIMON CAKE DESIGN with a soft marbled texture adorned with wispy, cascading florals. A carefully curated tablescape brought all of the details together. Layered china patterns tied in the florals and geometric detailing of the space. The lace table linens and taper candles provided the final, magical touch.
Tanya shares with us, "With the right planning team in place, our aim is to make sure that each selection adds a thoughtful appreciation of the surrounding spaces, event hosts and guests, and offerings of the season. No matter what season it is outside, The Yale Club is ready to provide a photogenic canvas for a sophisticated affair.”
