The Highline Hotel is one of those improbable NYC secrets. Hidden on a pretty townhouse-lined street in Chelsea, the Chapel, garden and Refectory entrance seem impossibly surrounded by trees, meandering paths and plantings. Space, light, 19th century architecture and green space — rare commodities in New York City
This incredible refectory is still used daily for seminarians’ meals. And these enormous, beautiful tables and chairs are available for guests to use, too.
Gorgeous rental chargers are combined with Wedding Library votives, cloths and dinner napkins. The blush pink cloths and napkins are hand-painted to create the slightest sheen.
We had fun creating details such as this wedding directional sign that lead guests to the reception. The pretty quatrefoil is laser cut wood.
The quatrefoil shows up again on this custom imprinted guest book.
Wedding Library custom linen and ribbon was stretched on large wooden frames to hold the escort cards.
A perfect brass cart holds sweets for the after-party — guests indulged in the french madelines and custom iced biscuits. And of course the wedding cake has a small fleur de lis crown.
The bride’s favorite macarons receive a custom box with a final “ballet” touch.
When two world-class ballet dancers wed, you can be sure the dancing was incredible. Everything was truly en pointe at this wedding!
