NYC Wedding with Spirit of Columbia at Club Lotos

Tom and Olivia wanted their wedding to have an old New York vibe, so it made perfect sense for the groom to be a member of the Lotos Club. “It really was a dream come true,” Olivia said. The ceremony was held at Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church. The bride wore a custom Vera Wang strapless dress, cinched in at the waist, and wrapped in a voluminous A-line skirt in hallucinatory lace from neck to wrist.

Tom’s tuxedo is handcrafted in the Brooklyn factory of Martin Greenfield Clothiers, the tailor who dressed presidents like Bill Clinton and Barack Obama , and the tailor who made the extraordinary “American Utopia” gray suit for David Byrne.

“I’ve always had the idea of ​​renting a giant shuttle bus like the Met [Gala] because I want to go [to church] standing so I don’t have to dress up Any questions,” Olivia said. “I don’t want an old car, I don’t want a sedan, I want a giant shuttle bus that I can go with my whole bridal party.”

After the ceremony, they headed to the Lotos Club for a reception where Olivia went upstairs to change into Oscar Delaren in an elegant V-neck and Cornelia James lace opera gloves Tower (Oscar de la Renta) dress.

alluded to my culture at the wedding,” she said. Cuban sons band Mélange played live Latin jazz, boleros and early salsa, with designs typical of Colombian beauty queens Dress by Alfredo Barraza.

“It’s been so interesting to see how everyone coexists in this very American vibe,” says Se Bastian Cabrises, a friend in Venezuela and a writer in Milan, recalls. “Tom’s side, very gringo, with Olivia’s family and friends, they are all Colombians from Barranquilla. Right in the middle of the wedding dinner, the band started playing a full salsa, and then half of the people—including Olivia—stopped eating and got up and danced. You just can’t stop them from being Latino. Dinner was served, but so was the salsa. ”

Olivia was originally planning to wear her Alfredo Barraza cocktail dress — adorned with ostrich feathers and embroidered with tiny sequins at the bottom to add some sparkle to the carnival — but time flies with all the salsa Sa danced away, and before she knew it, there were only 15 minutes left in the party. “I wanted to enjoy every second, so I decided to stay and dance a little more,” she said. The dress will have time to debut, perhaps on New Year’s Eve in Cartagena, or the couple celebrating their next anniversary.
