From Brian Hatton Photography... Lidia and Anthony were married on September 26th, with their wedding ceremony and reception at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York City. Anthony is a real estate developer, and he and Lidia met as she was considering getting an apartment in one of his properties. He got wind of who was coming by for a showing and insisted on giving the tour himself! The rest is history.

The whole day took place at the Mandarin Oriental overlooking Columbus Circle in Manhattan. I love shooting in this spectacular space every year, not only for all the service and luxury of a 5-star hotel but also for the unparalleled views from the ballroom and bridal suite. Before the ceremony itself, Lidia and Anthony opted to do a first look just outside in the circle, and then we all hopped in Sprinter vans to head out for pictures at Lincoln Center. Then it was back to the Mandarin Oriental for the ceremony overlooking Central Park as the sun went down. The Bride and Groom were surrounded by flowers, and the Bridesmaids even had differing but complementary bouquets.

Tantawan Bloom is one of the very best florists and event decorators in New York City. They turned the Mandarin Oriental's ballroom into a magical white wonderland. The whole day was filled with fine details and stunning visuals. The invitations were especially gorgeous, with each guest receiving a silk-covered bifold imprinted with gold leaf.
