There was a special Valentine’s week event at The Plaza Hotel on Saturday, February 12, where Tantawan Bloom did a beautiful wedding: Yankee’s broadcaster Michael Kay tied the knot with WPIX news anchor Jodi Applegate. There was an impressive group of guests, among them Paul O’Neill, David Cone, Tino Martinez, Darryl Strawberry, Joe Girardi, Hal Steinbrenner, Al Leiter, John Flaherty, WPIX’s Kaity Tong, NBC’s Brian Williams, and actor Danny Aiello (Michael Kay’s uncle). Music was provided by Star Talent, and at one point classical guitarist Bernie Williams jammed with the wedding band. The wedding ceremony was officiated by Rudy Giuliani.

Jodi Applegate’s bouquet was a dramatic and elegant creation of Stephanotis together with Phalaenopsis and Dendrobium Orchids, complementing a white dress of empire lace designed by Suzanne Neville from the Wedding Atelier bridal boutique.

The escort card table featured a fountain of white Phalaenopsis Orchids in The Plaza’s Palm Court. And the lavish ceremony itself took place in the Terrace Room, where we produced an atmosphere of soft wintery beauty. White panels of elegant chiffon and Phalaenopsis Orchids and glowing ivory candles framed the altar, the focal point of the day’s celebration.

The reception in the ballroom took place in an atmosphere of elegance and sophistication, a glamorous supper club, appropriate for the famed Plaza Hotel. White Hydrangeas, Roses and Phalaenopsis Orchids enchanted the guests and framed the celebrations that followed the earlier formal ceremony.

Special thanks to The Plaza’s Steve Rice and his team as well as catering by Great Performances, photographer David Hechler of Hechler Photography, and the lighting & sound team from Bentley Meeker.
