our little winter wedding in gramercy park......

Some more highlights of our February 9, 2008 wedding at the Player's Club on Gramercy Park. When we were searching for a venue, we wanted something that had the warmth and coziness of a old New York brownstone. After extensive research, I stumbled upon The Player's, a private club situated in a Greek Revival townhouse, facing Gramercy Park. What most people don't know, is that the club is open to non-members for events, with a fee of course. (it's not as steep as one thinks for NYC standards) Also, there are a lot of unique perks to this venue, one being that you have a access to Gramercy Park the day of your event. This is something very special as I believe it is the only private park in all of Manhattan. It was absolutely perfect for pictures, even in bare tree February but just think how beautiful a spring wedding would be! (note to future brides, the garden is filled with beds peonies in the spring) The inside of the venue has a vintage/library/bohemian feel, with 2 working fireplaces and beautiful chandeliers. Portraits of famous actors, costumes and old theater props fill up walls and rooms.


colors: violet, saffron yellow, cream
inpiration: vintage, chandeliers, candlelight and violets

Beautiful!!! I'm going for similar colors for my December wedding. You totally rocked the prada shoes by the way! Where you able to get fresh violets? What flowers did you use? Oh, and did your gardenia flower stay fresh through the evening? Sorry for the multitude of questions:)

lovely! Unfortunately, they do NOT guarantee access to the park. The park board must approve it. This came from Players Club mouth.

@ anonymous I believe the Players has changed hands in terms of hosting weddings and yes, now their rules about the park have changed. It's a shame because it makes the venue more attractive if you have access to the park.
