Rita Veygman and Roman Shukhman’s wedding took place at the Pierre Hotel
in New York City. Wedding planner, Christy Bareijsza of The Red Carpet Events
developed the theme of “French Renaissance” meets “Classic New York.”
Guests were invited into the ivory-washed room where the chuppah
(marriage canopy) stood as the center focal point dripping in orchids, roses and hydrangeas, complimented by crystals and layers of silk taffeta. The columns were accentuated by the perfect lighting as the bride walked down the aisle in a Vera Wang wedding dress
Guests entered the Grand Ballroom after a heartfelt ceremony that was filled with tears and joy. The Grand Ballroom burst with color and opulence as well as breathtaking crystal chandeliers decorated with peach garden roses, hydrangeas, ivory phalaenopsis orchids and Swarovski crystals. The floral color reflected off chocolate brown linens that was surrounded by deep orange satellite arrangements and pillar candles. An elegantly designed monogram was intertwined throughout the wedding from the cocktail napkins to the lighting to the menu cards.
All 225 guests were energized by the ten-piece band as they all danced the night away. The New York City glamor offered a breathtaking experience not only for Rita and Roman but for everyone who attended the wedding.
