So now we're onto the the big showstopper of the night...the views from the penthouse reception. It might be tied with the cake (more on that later...) as the huge photo-op of the night.
The room had windows on three sides , one facing Central Park, one facing downtown and the other facing the east side and there was even an outdoor balcony with a few tables so our guests were able to have a cocktail or two outdoors while taking in the view.
I have to admit, the view was the thing that sealed the deal for us when choosing a venue. No friends, it wasn't that J & I used to wait outside for Duran Duran to come out when we were teenagers. Although that was a kinda cool coincidence. We even have a picture of us looking very awkward circa 1986 standing outside of the hotel. But as I was saying, the view sold us. Take a look for yourselves.
Next up I'll show you the entrances and first dance.
