New Year’s Eve Wedding
The bride and groom chose to exchange their vows in a distinctive Brooklyn location, the Weylin B. Seymour . This is the former site of the iconic Williamsburgh Savings Bank in Brooklyn, built by renowned architect George B. Post and interiors designed by Peter B. Wright in 1875. This magnificent space is one of New York’s premier venues, with a spectacular frescoed dome, intricate mosaics, wooden carvings and sumptuous period décor. Steeped in history, the landmark building is viewed as one of the most monumental public spaces surviving in New York from the post-Civil War era.
With homage to New York as the overall theme, guests were welcomed musically on the steps of the Weylin by the voices of Spank, a Doo Wop group. The bride actually discovered the group singing on a New York subway platform. The bride arrived at the ceremony with her parents in the city’s most recognized mode of transportation: a Checker Cab.
Jerry Rose and his team created a magical candlelit ceremony and dinner with the ideal atmosphere to celebrate the new couple and the arrival of the new year.
