The Yale Club of New York City Inspiration


NYC wedding planner

Home many times have you envisioned your wedding day before it actually came to planning & wedding day itself? Well, I believe it’s safe to say “a lot”. What if you had a chance to have a glimpse of your wedding beforehand? Or have something like a small mockup/rehearsal wedding? Wouldn’t it be nice and helpful?


This is what I had in mind when came to planning this spectacular inspirational shoot at one of the most exquisite wedding venues of New York City - The Yale Club of New York City.

My goal was not just to decorate a reception table and ceremony site; instead I was striving to create and showcase the wedding day flow, a cohesive wedding story.

It's all about experience.


Classic, elegant and absolutely timeless. Those are the main feelings I wanted to be reflected in this wedding shoot.

Since the very beginning I knew that The Yale Club of New York City had everything I wanted. The sophistication, the charm, the story. The classical pediments and pilasters of the Grand ballroom were just waiting for the Breath of Spring to be delicately combined with the sky blue color of the space.

Another gem of the Yale Club of New York City was its view. Just perfect for the first look.


The Breath of Spring. That was indeed a concept of this wedding inspiration.


I was lucky to have my industry partner and floral magician, Cara of Three Notch Floral, as a part of the stellar vendor team. When I told her about my "not that classic or vintage, yet very unique & elegant bud vases floral vision for a tabletop", she instantly knew what I wanted and executed it perfectly, together with other stunning floral details of this wedding inspiration.

And seriously, this bridal bouquet is one of my favorites ever (I always fall in love with anemones in bridal bouquets).

Knowing my passion to details, Nicole of Macaron & White went over the top creating absolutely stunning invitation suite, personalized menus and other pretty stationery details. Can we have a moment here and just stay obsessed for a second with those blue menu tassels?

Artistically captured by Tanya Isaeva Photography, this shoot still has me reminiscing on that “perfect wedding day”.


And not to forget any moment of it, NST Pictures created absolutely dreamy video footage of it too.
