On the afternoon we stopped by CryoEmpire to talk with cofounder Dasha Varshavski, a cluster of silver mylar balloon letters were floating in the spacious lounge where clients relax after being treated. Turns out, the letters spelled out FROZEN and were left over from the party that CryoEmpire had just hosted for cast members of the Disney musical on Broadway, which officially opened this month.
Located just blocks away from Bryant Park, CryoEmpire is a state-of-the-art rejuvenation center that combines anti-aging services with the latest technology to tailor services that focus on beauty, performance, and recovery. As Dasha showed us around and explained the various equipment and procedures, we could really sense that a lot of thought was put into creating a welcoming and tranquil space. The interior is painted in airy shades of blue and white illuminated by crystal chandeliers with elegant decor. “Everyone who comes here says they never want to leave. That means a lot, because we really wanted to create a unique and beautiful environment that provides an escape from the city.” We couldn’t help but think how fantastic it would be to have a bridal shower here!

The timeless allure of Bryant Park was alight with sexy, modern accents at the wedding of Shelby and Jonathan this past summer, as pops of hot magenta and jungle green dappled a slick black-and-white runner flanked by majestic golden candelabras and sweet bow-tied napkins.

“For some reason fuchsia always looks amazing paired with black and white, so her vibrant centerpieces really looked gorgeous when the whole look came together,” explains Creative Director Lindsay Saltz.
