Let someone else get married on top of a mountain or at the beach. For Moira Gavin and Thomas Bross III, the place to exchange vows was the Harold Pratt Mansion, a swank beaux-arts building on New York’s tony Fifth Avenue.

Lit by the romantic glow of candlelight and one seriously stunning chandelier, the upstairs salon where the ceremony took place exuded elegance and warmth despite its grandeur. Cocktail hour in the library, followed by dinner in the luxurious ballroom, capped off the fairy-tale evening.
