Vanessa & Michael: The Yale Club; NYC
Vanessa & Michael got married at one of NYC wedding videographer Tim Alan Smith's favorite NYC wedding locations- The Yale Club- on a beautiful Sunday in June. When I arrived in the bridal suite, Vanessa was getting her hair and make-up done and bridesmaids were arriving. NYC wedding photographer Lina Jang was already there to document the transformation. (her photo is above). Nervous groom-to-be, Michael, was waiting patiently in the ornate lobby of the NYC Yale Club for his beautiful bride. We made Michael wait at the bottom of the grand staircase with his back turn as Vanessa glided down in her beautiful gown. His eyes beamed when he saw his beautiful bride and then we all headed to Grand Central and then Bryant Park for some more photos and video before heading back to the Yale Club for photos on the rooftop balcony. The ceremony was held in the historic library of the Yale Club which proved to be a unique and beautiful spot for the couple to exchange vows. After that it was cocktail hour and then a night of revelry with entertainment provided by an excellent DJ team from Hal Prince. All and all, a night to remember for all those involved!
