A cou­ple’s whirl­wind wed­ding has its roots in the city’s her­itage.

When New York City is the back­drop to your love story, the fairy tale prac­ti­cally writes it­self. Af­ter meet­ing at Sotheby’s auc­tion house, New York cou­ple Mackie Healy and Alexan­der Glauber knew that they wanted a clas­sic wed­ding that rep­re­sented the city’s cos­mopoli­tan feel. The cou­ple chose a pri­vate club that was spe­cial to the groom’s fam­ily and em­bod­ied the black-tie ambience they wanted.

Event plan­ner Danielle Elder of Clas­sic Events (917-363-2208; clas­sic eventsnyc.com) helped them pull the so­phis­ti­cated el­e­ments to­gether. “We gave them the tra­di­tional wed­ding they dreamed of—but with a mod­ern twist,” she says. “Per­sonal touches in your wed­ding are key.” The cou­ple re­ally wanted to em­brace the sea­son, she adds: “New York is just so beau­ti­ful year-round, so we de­vel­oped col­ors and flow­ers to add sea­sonal touches.”

To en­sure that their wed­ding was cap­tured for pos­ter­ity, Mackie and Alexan­der looked to pho­tog­ra­pher Judy Pak (judy­pak.com). “Com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­tween cou­ple and pho­tog­ra­pher is fun­da­men­tal for help­ing us cap­ture beau­ti­ful and au­then­tic images,” says Pak. “We love to get to know our cou­ples, lis­ten to their sto­ries, and learn about their style to cre­ate more mean­ing­ful images for them.” Of course, having an at­trac­tive cou­ple and a so­phis­ti­cated back­drop makes the process a breeze. Says Pak, “We get ex­cited when cou­ples have an im­pec­ca­ble taste for fash­ion and are will­ing to have fun with the pho­tos!”—c.t.

BACKLESS AP­PEAL The backless dress is one of the sea­sonds hottest wed­ding trends. Mackie Healyds cus­tom Bran­don Maxwell gown (left) gave her the ef­fort­lessly cool and el­e­gant look she craved. Itds no se­cret that a wed­ding dress is one of the fo­cal points of the day—af­ter all, your friends and fam­ily will watch you dance, toast, and cel­e­brate the night away—so re­mem­ber that the dress should be as breath­tak­ing from the back as it is from the front! above: Stretch lace gown, ($1,975).
