A quintessential New York City love story, Allison and Michael hail from other parts of the country, but found each other in the greatest city in the world. The stars aligned, and amidst eight million people, they found the one. The New York City life is a choice. It is the determination that there is simply nowhere else to live, breathe, and fall in love. Where New York City served as the stage for Allison and Michael’s love story, came the formation of the perfect setting for an exquisite wedding at the magnificent Gotham Hall.

Drawing inspiration from the fairy tales that Allison has dreamed of since she was a little girl, Gotham Hall had completely enamored the couple after looking at nearly one hundred venues. Once they had found the venue that swept them off their feet, vision became reality as Wedding Planner Danielle Bobish of Curtain Up Eventsorchestrated a magical evening.

Where an enchanted forest met NYC, Jessie Weidinger of Rountree Flowers mirrored this vision and magnified the beauty and charm of Gotham Hall with a soft palette of flowers, joined by branches, and romantic candle lighting. Rock Paper Scissors Events oversaw and executed the event’s awe-inspiring design.

Paying true homage to the grounds of their union, New York City was an ever-present detail in Allison and Michael’s creative Save-The-Dates and invitations. The New Yorker and skyscraper graphics gave guests a glimpse of what was to come.
