Real Wedding: The Yale Club

My career as a wedding planner started years ago at The Yale Club. I am always excited and nostalgic to return to the place where it all started, so when Adriana and Doug contacted me last year, I was happy to help them plan their wedding.

Adriana carefully selected this ribbon on her invitations to coordinate the sash on her dress. The bride's mom had the invites printed in Hong Kong. The Chinese symbol means double happiness.

Elegant Affairs designed the bouquets.

These clutches still go down as my favorite bridesmaid gifts, ever. This etsy finds is personal, creative and thoughtful. LOVE!





There is little I won't do for a bride on her wedding day. Help with her accessories, but of course.

Adriana was a gorgeous bride, these are two of my favorite photos of her.



Look closely, can you see something blue? No, not the carpet, look closer. Love again.

Adriana surprised her groom with a very romantic gift, this special guitar.

I always work with at least one associate planner, since I can't be everywhere, though I do try.

The Church of St. Ignatius is magnificent, Lina Jang and her team did a superb job of capturing its brilliance.





Here comes the bride, escorted by her father.



What a great angle of the church and nice that the bridal party isn't expected to stand picture perfect throughout the service.



After their ceremony, the couple took advantage of the beautiful weather and had photos taken outside on Manhattan's iconic Park Avenue.

I adore Adriana's cathedral veil.





Doug's splurge was this classic automobile.







Tomorrow's recap will include Adriana and Doug's traditional tea ceremony, their wonderful wedding reception and the pretty cake.

  1. Hey Tammy - love the elegant invitations. The ribbon color and fabric is so sophisticated - beautiful! And of course I would have loved to have been a bridesmaid at this wedding. I bet they were thrilled about the purses!
