For their winter wedding in New York, Margaret and David chose The University Club for their ceremony and reception. “It perfectly matched my vision for a classic New York winter wedding,” the bride tells Twirl New York.

Their wedding palette of ivory, cream and gold, gave the couple the timeless look they were going for. The bride wore a strapless mermaid gown by Victor Harper that she purchased at Bridal Reflections, and carried a bouquet of cream-colored roses. The groom complemented his bride’s formal wedding gown with a classic black tuxedo from J. Crew, and accessories from Brooks Brothers and Kenneth Cole. The bridesmaids, looked glamorous in floor-length Monique Lhuillier gowns they purchased at Claudia Hanlin’s Wedding Library.

“The University Club gave us a beautiful backdrop for the couple’s first look,” Luke Walker, the couple’s wedding photographer explains. After a few indoor portraits, and despite the January cold, the couple took photos on 5th Avenue, for some very memorable pictures. “It’s iconic New York at it’s best.  Margaret especially gets props in that wedding dress – she rocked it!” says Luke.

As you can see during the ketubah signing prior to the ceremony, everyone present could feel the excitement and love in the room.  For the ceremony, the couple planned a traditional Jewish ceremony, and the couple and their immediate families stood under a white chuppah adorned with white flowers and a tallit, which was placed in the center of the canopy.

For the reception, the ballroom at the University Club was decorated with white roses and candlelight, that added a romantic glow to the room.  Each place setting had the reception menu placed on a gold-rimmed charger, and the couple’s wedding cake was a classic 5-tiered white cake with a cascade of pink “roses.”
