A Central Park Zoo Wedding Reception

I had the pleasure of photographing a lovely reception at the Central Park Zoo a few weeks ago designed by the bride's family with Curtain Up Events! The ceremony was held at the lovely Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church on Fifth Avenue and everyone arrived at the park just before sunset for cocktails and a private performance by the sea lions! The event was filled with lovely details including live sitar music during the cocktail hour, colorful throw pillows all around, peacock feathers for each guest on the tables, paper lanterns surrounding the park and lovely gold & green table decor. Guests were treated to an amazing meal provided by Great Performances and rocked the night away to the music of DJ David Chang. As a cake-lover, one of my favorite elements was the custom six-tier almond wedding cake with lemon-buttercream frosting decorated with sugar green cymbidium orchids and blackberries on a custom tree stand made by Sugar Flowers Cake Shop. I didn't have time to taste it but it was spectacular! All the details were amazing and it was an incredible event!
