What could be more fitting for a big city wedding than a monogram made to mimic the iconic New York Times typeface? The custom design decorated the save-the-dates and invites, and was incorporated into the rest of the paper for a cohesive look. Vivid magenta tones set against lush greenery revved up the cocktail hour, while a soft white, silver and gold palette with crystal accents lent the reception a sophisticated air, says planner Sofia Crokos.

Crokos says she likes to think of the cocktail hour as this one hour of fun time where you can take things a little off the beaten path. She and Stark saturated the room with bold pinks, plums and burgundies for an energetic party feel before bringing it back down to a muted, elegant palette for dinner.

“Finding a unique space was key,” says Crokos, who discovered Manhattan’s Jazz at Lincoln Center. “We knew it would be such an exciting change for guests; everyone is so used to going to weddings with the standard setup.” Plus, it tied in nicely with the couple’s passion for live music.
