Yale Club Wedding NYC

When Catherine transferred from Morgan Stanley's London office to New York, she describes that Taylor wouldn't leave her alone. That led to a whirlwind of dates and a true connection that brought together friends and family from across the pond to celebrate their wedding at New York's Yale Club, the largest clubhouse in the world. The bride prepared in one of the suites while the groom got ready in the Tap Room. In British tradition, the couple saw each other first at the ceremony, which was held in the grand second floor lounge, then off to the roof for some cocktails and back to the lounge where the club transformed the space for a classic and elegant reception. Catherine and Taylor so enjoyed the band and festivities, we only had a few minutes for some rooftop shots and I'm glad the rains held off for us for those few minutes!  
 
We just delivered their wedding album design which you may view below, congratulations again Catherine and Taylor, it was an honor to document your day and to be present for so many special moments!

I just love the second floor lounge at the Yale Club!

I love having the opportunity to photograph meaningful architecture within the context of a ceremony, this ceiling of the Second Floor Main Lounge at Yale Club is a 1915 masterwork by architect James Gamble Rogers, always look up!

When the bride's father sings at the reception, it's always a special moment, I love how there were so many quick and meaningful words said by the couple's friends, and I especially love how the groom's parents are looking at the bride during the ceremony!

I loved catching their candid moment in this reflection across the street from us. Cocktail hour on the roof on a sunny day is a dream at the Yale Club!
