Lauren and Todd had a modern, elegant, and very fun wedding at the W Union Square Hotel.
They both got ready in rooms at the W and then met for the first look in Union Square.
Lauren and Todd stopped to share an iced coffee at the hotel’s Todd English Bar, Olives, just before the ceremony.
Todd and Lauren designed their wedding with one goal in mind: for everybody to have fun. Todd continues, “We designed our wedding so WE could enjoy it. This was our big night out in NYC and our chance to show our friends from all over the world–Los Angeles, New York, Hong Kong, Detroit, and Cleveland–how we throw a party. We figured if we were having fun, everybody else would feed off of us.
“We aimed to keep the mood light the whole way through, from our bridal party entrance music (I walked down to the Hulk Hogan theme!) to our joking around during the ceremony… we made sure to enjoy every moment. The goal was to be classically Manhattan without being pretentious. For this, the W was the perfect choice as the room had the beautiful gold ceiling while the rest of the hotel had a very modern feel.”
The FUN continued right into the reception.
Congratulations Lauren and Todd!
