At the end of February, with a bottle of hand sanitizer in my pocket, I made my way downtown for a glorious wedding at Capitale on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, New York City. Looking back I feel completely relieved for Jenn & Mike that they were able to fit this in before everything got shut down. The next weekend, I had a wedding canceled just hours before.
Getting ready at Public Hotel, Jenn was surrounded by friends and family as she was wrapped up in final preparations before seeing Mike. Using Public Hotel as a starting point added a modern element to the day before entering the old New York charm of Capitale, the former Bowery Savings Bank. After a first look at the base of Public’s iconic elevator bank, we took some photos around the hotel and out on the street, braving the winter chill.
With its soaring ceilings, guests entering Capitale were greeted with a magical atmosphere complete with aerialists, a huge band, and elegant decor by Rebecca Shepherd Floral Designs.
