Alexandra and Benjamin's wedding at Cipriani 42nd St planned by Harriette Rose Katz for Gourmet Advisory as seen in Grace Ormonde Fall 2014.

It is always incredible  to photograph a beautiful wedding. It takes so much work to organize such a wonderful day and in the case of Alexandra and Benjamin they turned towards Harriette Rose Katz and her staff at Gourmet Associates to take care of all the little details.
It was truly amazing walking into Cipriani 42nd st. The space was transformed into a wonderland of flowers and candles.
Here are the pages from the up coming issue of Grace Ormonde where the wedding is featured.

The 10th Annual Notable Occasion at Carnegie Hall

Last night was The 10th Annual Notable Occasion at Carnegie Hall. I arrived early to photograph the Bulgari Family on stage with the musicians before the event began.
There is something so amazing to stand on the stage and look out at the theater and so I felt so great being able to take photos there.
After the concert the party moved across the street where everyone got to mix and mingle with old friends and new.

MOMA Party in th Garden 2014

Last night was the 2014 MOMA Party in the Garden and was I happy that it didn't rain. I arrived nice and early so I could get some shots before the guests arrived.
Everyone was excited by the list of guests that included Daniel Craig, Madonna and Leonardo DiCaprio.
I was happy to see lots of friends and familiar faces.
 Daniel was receiving an award for his contribution to the arts and was escorted on the red carpet by Marie-Josée Kravis. The other 2 were very discrete and arrived after the guests were seated for dinner. I had heard rumors that Leonardo is extremely camera shy and they turned out to be true. He came hiding under a cap. I snapped a photo or two but realized he was better off being left alone. Daniel on the other hand was charming and happy to be photographed. Madonna was really cool. When I asked her could I take a photo she told me it would cost me. Sorry I did not ask her how much but probably just as well cause who knows what amount she would have said. Wished I had had a dollar in my pocket!
It was also the eve of David Rockefeller's 99th Birthday. I hope he has a wonderful day today.
Happy Birthday Mr Rockefeller.

The beautiful building was brought to life by DeJaun Stroud and his very talented team. There were amazing chandeiers hanging above the guests that filled the space with a soft glow. The tables had different centerpieces that were made up of white flowers and low candles.
Vacheron Constantin were the sponsors of the evening and many of the dancers were wearing watches and were more than happy to show them off.

The Frederick Law Olmsted Awards Luncheon At the Central Park Conservancy Garden fondly known as the Central Park Hat Lunch

Every May I keep my fingers crossed that the weather will be perfect for just one day and that day was yesterday. It was bliss. The reason was The Frederick Law Olmsted Awards Luncheon At the Central Park Conservancy Garden fondly known as the Central Park Hat Lunch.
England has Ascot, Kentucky has the Derby and we in NY have the once a year luncheon in the park where women pull out their spring wardrobe, put on their highest heels and biggest hats and manage to walk down a flight of stairs to enter the Conservancy Garden with grace and style.
This year the waiters were on hand to escort the women down.
There were flowers and ribbons, butterflies and birds, inspiration from the museums along 5th Ave and from Central Park itself.
Mr Bloomberg was this years honoree and he was all smiles sitting at a table of women with hardly a man in sight.
It was fun seeing everyone looking so colorful and we were all happy that the weather was perfect.

Dinner on Stage at the Met Opera

Sunday night was the annual Dinner on Stage at The Met Opera House in NY. What an amazing experience to be able to sit on the stage surrounded by such a beautiful backdrop while rubbing elbows with some of the most beautiful people and talented opera singers in the world.
Sometimes I have to pinch myself to realise that I am actually there and the is not some movie I am watching curled up on my sofa.
