Gotham Hall will always hold a special place in our hearts. It was one of the first major venues in New York City that Bride & Blossom had the pleasure to decorate back in 2011. Built in 1924 when it served as The Greenwich Savings Bank, the space radiates timeless New York elegance from floor to ceiling. What makes Gotham Hall so remarkable from a wedding florist’s standpoint is that despite the distinctive atmosphere, the venue caters to a myriad of décor styles ranging from classic to whimsical to modern.

You know you are in for an epic proposal story when it involves shutting down one of NYC’s most iconic eateries. But first, let us rewind to 2013, the year when Laura and Charlie met on Tinder. “We hit it off immediately by text and had our first date a few days later at Cienfuegos, a Cuban restaurant and bar in the East Village. It was love at first sight and we’ve been inseparable ever since!”

We are excited to introduce Laura, our Bride & Blossom Featured Bride for March! Laura and Charlie were married at Cipriani 42nd Street last July. Here, she shares the first chapter in their New York fairytale.

After exchanging vows, Stefanie and Mike welcomed guests to a stunning reception with décor capturing the magical ambiance of the evening. From the brilliant florals to the gorgeous dinnerware to the show-stopping cake, this was going to be a celebration no one would soon forget. Here, Stefanie shares the final chapter in her Real BB Wedding story.

Part 4: Reception, Guest Card Display and Centerpieces

The evening festivities commenced with cocktail hour. Guests mingled, enjoyed delicious hors d’oeuvres, and raised the first of many toasts to the newlyweds. Afterward, everyone returned to Gotham Hall’s Grand Ballroom where they were greeted with a card display made of two walls decorated with greenery and flowers. Stefanie and Mike enlisted Ceci New York to put a personal touch on all of their wedding stationery. “We loved collaborating with Pejy Kash to bring Stefanie and Mike’s classic and timeless vision for their invitations to life,” the luxury wedding invitation designer remarks. “When it comes to the day of accessories, we always love a floral, so when Pejy asked us to create something inspired by Bride & Blossom’s floral design for the day, we were in. We created beautiful floral tags using our signature Ceci Floral Watercolor, each had the guests name hand calligraphed. It was a perfect combination, and for us it’s all in the details!”

“I’ll never forget seeing the ballroom for the first time,” BB Featured Bride Stefanie recalls. Gotham Hall’s grand, cavernous space is marked with a 3,000 square foot ceiling above an inlaid marble floor with classical gilded ornamentation all around. Decorating such a distinctive venue can be tricky. One could play it safe with traditional white or take a risk with a vibrant floral display. Stefanie chose the latter and here, she reminisces about her and Mike’s spectacular ceremony.

When we were tagged in a photo on Instagram featuring artwork of preserved baby’s breath, our first thought was, “Wow! This is beautiful!” Admittedly, our second thought was, “But, what does this have to do with our wedding flowers?” Then we saw that a past bride had made the post and also tagged Soil + Soul Studio. Turns out, the tiny white flowers were actually taken from a bouquet of baby’s breath we made for Holly, the past bride, to carry at her wedding last year. We then reached out to Holly for more details.
