Hundreds of NYC wedding professionals enjoyed a tropical oasis in Manhattan designed by BLB Events in partnership with WeddingWire at our Summer in the City event. Guests mingled and networked their way through the evening in the modern event space (PUBLIC Hotel) with a spacious terrace. We couldn’t get over the way that our bright, tropical event looked with the city’s skyline at sunset, and the warm up-lighting (Dash of Class Platinum Entertainment) made the inside just as scenic!

BLB Events placed a heavy emphasis on incorporating florals and potted plants (Bride & Blossom) into the design —. including gorgeous arrangements throughout the space and fresh florals tucked into a wooden geometric bar and large macrame curtain (Patina Rentals). Guests enjoyed the floral studded macrame curtain as a photobooth backdrop (sharingbox, Bride & Blossom), fit with a millennial pink velvet couch and banana leaf printed pillows. Check out the gallery (Use the code: yT*2u) After a snapshot in the photobooth, guests also were invited to get palm readings and mini-manicures.
