A Chic Rooftop Wedding at NoMad Hotel in New York, New York

Stanley Adamik (48 and an interior designer and owner of Black Cherry Design) and Jason Charney (38 and a psychotherapist and artist) planned an intimate wedding at the chic NoMad Hotel in New York, New York. The pair were instantly drawn to the venue’s prime location and beautiful rooftop terrace that offered breathtaking views of the city. A rich palette and smart design added to the appeal and offered a stunning backdrop for the fall affair. Stanley put his design expertise to good use, working with the team at the NoMad and Victoria Ahn Designs by Ahn to create a romantic yet masculine design for the evening that tied in seamlessly with the hotel’s decor. “I love working on special events. It’s an opportunity to deliver, through design, an immediate emotional experience for my clients and their guests that will leave a lasting impression and a cherished memory,” Stanley says. “It was no different for my own wedding.” The rooftop hosted to the entire event, with Stanley and Jason exchanging vows in a moving indoor ceremony, followed by an elegant tented reception. Chandeliers, lanterns and candlelight filled the space with warmth and ambiance, the effect becoming even more pronounced as the sun set over the city, while arrangements of roses, orchids, ranunculus and dahlias in deep shades of red, pink and purple injected energy and life into the decor. Set to the tune of vibrant vintage French bohemian music, the newlyweds and their guests dined on decadent dishes like poularde with summer beans and black truffle and lemon cake with three-berry compote. A tip from Stanley and Jason: “Get what you want and don’t settle. And remember it will all work out beautifully in the end.”
