The Gramercy Park Hotel was the perfect place for Victoria and Cameron’s Engagement Party. The backdrop of the Manhattan skyline lined with roses suspended from the ceiling set a romantic tone for the event. The rooftop also featured an impressive collection of 20th century art, lush tropical plants and comfortable furnishing making it the perfect place for the gathering of family and friends.
The engagement party had florals that ran from the walls to tabletops including beautiful pave of red roses set as centerpieces. The color popped against their ivory linen and black chairs. Not only was the decor romantic in every way, the couple had many photograph worthy spots throughout the venue as well. The hotel itself features an unique art installation with 4,400 light bulbs. It left guest starstruck as they dined, drank and danced as for celebration for the happy couple.
About the venue: The Gramercy Park Hotel is filled with Julian Schnabel’s stunning, hand-crafted furnishings and rare, imported items from far-away markets. From the lobby’s hand-tufted, garnet-and-gold Aubusson rug and the looming saw-tooth chandelier in the Rose Bar to each room’s custom-cut crystal glasses and bronze-studded velvet headboards every detail creates a story – one that is grand, yet intimate. The Gramercy Park Hotel’s Renaissance-revival flair can be found on its every wall, curtain and carpet, which are washed in a bold mix of vibrant, deliberate colors. Shades of lush greens, deep reds and velvety purples burst with life, invoking a bygone era of elegance and opulence. Masterpieces not only hang the walls of the Gramercy Park Hotel, but also from its soaring ceilings. The drama of the Drawing Room’s luminary work of art, conceived by Julian Schnabel, and created by Brooklyn artists Annika Newell and Tom Schultz, is a must-see located on the hotel’s top floor.
