From our very first meeting, Ann and Scott had their heart set on the iconic New York Public Library. We knew gold would play a strong role in the design and so did Ann's bespoke gown and cape designed by Naeem Khan. Nothing adds warmth and personality to a wedding quite like a creative ceremony program (shown above). The bride and groom really outdid themselves by writing a paragraph for each member of their bridal party. Romantic quotes punctuated the long hallway leading to the reception, where chic gilded details added a dash of over-the-top glamour. Theatrical mask escort cards infused drama and anticipation. And don’t underestimate the reflective, space expanding powers of a black mirror dance floor. Totally stunning. Not to mention a little "ice, ice, baby" performed by Vanilla Ice himself.
