The Vera Wang Flagship at 991 Madison Avenue is where it all began. In 1990 Vera Wang opened her eponymous bridal salon in the famed Carlyle Hotel on New York's Upper East Side. Brides flock to this bridal mecca to try on the latest bridal collection and timeless designs from previous seasons. Brides, and their guests, enjoy a luxurious experience where they can sip champagne as they browse and slip into voluminous ball gowns, fitted mermaids and sexy sheaths. In addition to gowns, brides can also shop for bridal accessories by Erin Cole and Miriam Haskell.
For Sophia and Jason it may not have been love at first sight, but on their big day their wedding radiated romance. The bride chose a jewel-tone palette of purples with gold accents that was featured in the bridal party's attire, floral decor, and in the grand ballroom of The Roosevelt Hotel. Take a look at their beautiful New York City wedding at stylemepretty.com.
