Love at Le Parker Meridien New York

sweetheart-table-le-parker-meridien

Looking for an elegant Manhattan wedding venue with a stunning view? Caroline and Jonathan’s celebration at Le Parker Meridien New York will inspire you. This French-tradition hotel offers several lovely event spaces, but floor-to-ceiling windows, overlooking Central Park, make the Estrela Penthouse something special.

Bride Caroline chose wedding flowers in a palette of light pink and cream, with touches of lavender, accented with soft green. She wanted a loose, natural look for her bridal bouquet. We included blush garden roses, light-pink roses, off-white garden roses, ivory spray roses and white sweet pea, with blush astilbe, dusty miller and jasmine vine accents.

To create an intimate, ethereal ceremony space, trios of floral arrangements, set at varying heights, featured lush, cream hydrangea, studded with lavender and light-pink roses and garden roses, and finished with cascading amaranthus, ivy and Italian ruskus. High card table and reception centerpieces were variations on this theme.
