{CUE Real Wedding}: Ali + Mark, part 1

Ali and Mark choose to keep things classy with an elegant black and white, flowerless wedding. The couple had a beautiful ceremony at world famous St. Patrick’s Cathedral which finished in classic NYC style as a saxophone player serenaded the newlyweds and their guests as they exited down the cathedral steps.

It was then on to Le Parker Meridien NY for the cocktail hour and reception in the penthouse pool and Estrella penthouse, respectively, which provided breathtaking views of the city below.

For the cocktail hour CUE transformed the penthouse pool into an elegant event space.

The escort card table, draped in white linen, was covered with black faux crystals upon which laid the escort cards, each hand-crafted into delicate feathers. Candles of various sizes, some with crystal lining, stood behind the table numbers. A black rococo mirror set above the table reflected the candlelight adding a romantic touch of opulence.


CUE created a modern, clean, black and white theme in the Penthouse space for the reception. Sheer white draping flowed out from the center chandelier to the four corners of the room. Each column of the penthouse was enveloped in a dramatic layer of white sheer voile giving the room a dramatic air. Round dinner tables were draped in white linen and set with black cotton napkins for contrast. Table numbers in black ink were set in white resin Rococo frames and each table also had an elegant black, crystal draped candelabra.

As a final touch, the room was filled with frosted white votives.

The girls at CUE had a fabulous time putting together this unforgettable wedding. Congratulations to Ali and Mark as they begin their new adventure together!
