Yesterday we shared a peek inside the winter issue of Martha Stewart Weddings featuring this classic city wedding shot by Shawn Connell, and today we have even more photographs of this gorgeous celebration. Angela and Eric, a New York couple, planned this absolutely timeless affair. With a nod to tradition, the bride wore her grandmother’s beautiful wedding gown from 1944 for their ceremony at the elegant Cathedral of St. Patrick on Fifth Avenue. All-white accessories and decor like the bride’s elbow-length white gloves, large round balloons and table centerpieces made from frothy cotton and hydrangeas delicately accented the winter season.
The Harvard Club (the groom's alma mater) was the perfect storied backdrop for the reception, with its ornate chandeliers and white candles lending a warm glow to the room. The bride’s second dress was something new--a full-skirted ballgown perfect for floating across the dance floor. And there was plenty of dancing--an Elvis impersonator provided some lively entertainment, and set a fun and whimsical tone at the reception.
Shawn Connell photographed this wedding and captured every glamorous detail. A special thanks to Angela and Eric for letting us feature their wedding.
