If you love all things Gatsby and enjoy luxurious and formal weddings, this is one of them combining the features of these two at its best. Lauren and Brennan’s January wedding at The Metropolitan Club was all about that art deco grandeur of old New York. Here you’ll see that all: the venue, the dancers, the dark, elegant ceremony, the champagne lady, let’s take a closer look at it!
The bride and groom wanted to throw a decadent, whimsical party reflective of their fun-loving personalities and personal taste. An advertisement by A Taylored Affair in New York Magazine’s wedding edition, which read “Don’t be like the rest of them, darling,” encapsulated everything the couple wanted their wedding to be—not like the rest of them.
From the moment the wedding began (the groom walked down the aisle to a string quartet version of “Eye of the Tiger,” while the bride descended the grand two-story staircase of the Metropolitan Club and walked down the aisle to “Tonight, Tonight” by the Smashing Pumpkins), every detail spoke to who the couple is and what they love. The wedding captured the decadent whimsy of the bride’s favorite era, the Jazz Age, with a woman covered in flowers strolling through cocktail hour with a skirt that held 75 glasses of champagne and a life-sized framed custom vintage poster of the bride and groom greeting guests at the escort card table.
