After a traditional ceremony at Saint Patrick's Cathedral, one couple celebrates at a modern hotel overlooking Central Park.

Nyssa and Chris, who met at a party in 2008, envisioned a modern, elegant wedding. "We wanted a classic New York black-tie affair, but with some youthful, contemporary flair," says Nyssa, who wore an Ines Di Santo gown ("The skirt's fabric flowers and crystal details provided the perfect amount of drama," she says) and veil, both purchased at Bergdorf Goodman. She accessorized with a mink bolero by Mary McFadden Couture.

Chris sported a suit from Tai Pan Row Tailors.
