A boutique hotel with an opulent but rustic interior is the setting for one couple's romantic celebration.

Marcy and Aaron first met on a blind date, and went out for nine months before getting engaged. "We decided together to get married—there wasn't an actual proposal," Marcy says. The couple chose the Bowery Hotel for the ceremony and reception after a close friend recommended the venue. "It was the first and only space we looked at," says the bride. She wore a knee-length dress by Oscar de la Renta, purchased from Bergdorf Goodman. "A classic cocktail dress was perfect—I didn't want to wear something that would overpower me or the space," says Marcy.
