An Elegant New York Wedding at Renaissance Event Hall in Long Island City, New York

Yannery Gonzalez (27, a Teacher) and Bobby Basdeo (26, a Financial Analyst) held their wedding in May, at the Renaissance Event Hall in Long Island City, New York. Inspired by the old world European feel of their reception venue and the Spring season, the couple chose a color palette of pinks and purples to bring out the simple elegance of their wedding. The highlight of the wedding? The couple's amazing cocktail hour. "We wanted our guests to have fun and interact with each other, so we had different games at each table, like Connect Four, UNO and checkers. We also hired dancers to perform and help our guests learn some Spanish moves, like Bachata and Merengue," Yannery says.
