Stunning New York Fall and Winter Weddings

Earlier this week in the Wedding Edibles section, I posted some of the most spectacular food presentation photos from Elegant Affairs, the caterer that often works with the stellar talent of Harriette Rose Katz {event planner} and Bentley Meeker {lighting master}. Both of whom are featured in the tabletop book Art of Celebration – The Making of a Gala – New York Style. Even though the wedding displays might be a bit over the top for the average wedding, I just had to share these incredible fall and winter wedding photos with you. {my personal favorite is the last one with the rows of chairs and trees leading to the altar}
The winter trees above are from Bentley Meeker
All other photos are from Harriette Rose Katz
