Manhattan Wedding With a Skyline View


Green and white bridal and bridesmaids bouquets wrapped with crystals.

“What is more dramatic, even romantic, than the tumbled towers of lower Manhattan, rising suddenly to the clouds like a magic castle girdled by water?” ― Jane Jacobs, The Death and Life of Great American Cities

New York City bride Julissa wanted a celebration with a Manhattan skyline view for her late summer wedding. Planner Leslie Short of K.I.M. Media, who specializes in weddings with a Latin flair, knew a perfect spot.

“They were looking for an indoor and outdoor venue with a quiet sophistication about it. Tribeca Rooftop fit the bill,” said Short. “When we walked in Julissa got chills and said, ‘This is my venue!'”

Natural light from Tribeca Rooftop's 65-foot skylight,

Tribeca Rooftop, a twelfth-floor penthouse, offers guests breathtaking views of the Hudson river, downtown Manhattan and the Empire State Building.

To offset the sophisticated glamour of a city wedding, Julissa chose white and green flowers for a fresh, natural feel. She carried a bridal bouquet composed of garden roses, green hydrangea, green hypericum berries, brunia berries, white tulips, dusty miller and white fresia. Her bridesmaids’ bouquets showcased green roses, green hypericum berries, white tulips, and white freesia.

“Julissa loves crystals and wanted them all over her bouquet and dress,” said Short. The tablescape was kept very clean and elegant with crisp green and white centerpieces. “Each of her tables was named after a Manhattan landmark,” said Short. “Empire State Building, Chrysler Building– she wanted New York chic.”

And we love to see a bride get what she wants.
