As I gather all of my equipment, I am thrilled for yet another occasion and my part in making sure this day is her most special. Today will be a wedding to remember… One that has taken months of careful planning right down to every detail; from having chosen the perfect dress and wedding planner to assist with every decision that will help to create a dream filled with spectacular moments to the venue, lighting, flowers, menu, seating, place cards, napkins, table cloths and music for every second of the day.

This day will include The New York Public Library that stretches 390 feet along Fifth Avenue. The Library is of regal proportions and most certainly feels as if it were designed for royalty. The opulence of the staircases allow for entrances and exits of the most beautiful ballrooms of a European palace.

We started the day on the 46th floor looking out onto Columbus Circle listening to Sissel’s Pie Jesu. With peace and focus we begin the process of “Getting Ready”.

The beauty of this time is the affirmation that the day will be as magical as any bride has dreamed… With every pin that sets the hair and every brush stroke that I choose to ensure the most beautiful vision. With the love and support of her mother and Matron of Honor, the day runs as smoothly as clock work. Not one worry due to the fact that the wedding planner has made sure that there is everything to satisfy all desires for food or drink and that we have someone monitoring the clock while the photographers capture these stolen moments.

When the hair and makeup are as beautiful as the gown, we begin to dress the bride with buttoning every button and adding that something borrowed and something blue before she steps into her beautiful shoes and before placing the veil on her coiffed head of hair.
The day now begins with every plan that has been made from this moment onward, like butterflies in a field full of flowers on the most beautiful day….

Whether an elegant wedding at the New York Public Library, The Pierre Hotel or The Samode Palace in Jaipur, every one of them are as magical as the first bride that I felt lucky to share that moment with…
