A Classic New York Autumn Wedding at The Metropolitan Club

For Curry and Marius Jungerhans’ November, 2019 wedding, they wanted something “classic New York.” The ceremony was scheduled for Grace Church with a reception following the service at The Metropolitan Club of New York, which holds special connections to her family. Once they visited the club together, it was confirmed to be perfect to celebrate there.

To walk down the aisle, Curry wanted a dress that looked like it was made for her. She naturally went the custom route at Le spose de Giò in London and only paired the gown with her mother’s Russian antique diamond earrings and Christian Louboutin pumps with a ribbon-tie detail.

On the day-of, Curry got ready with makeup artist Aliana Lopez and hair artist Chelsey Drapeau to create her perfect bridal beauty look. She also sweetly wrapped her grandmother’s wedding handkerchief around her bouquet, by Floralies Events, as another sentimental touch before heading to the church. 

Marius wore a custom, midnight blue tuxedo from Cad & The Dandy, his grandfather’s gold cufflinks, and a pair of classic patent shoes with a grosgrain flat ribbon. And the flower girls wore custom, baby blue, French lace and organza dresses designed by Curry’s mother, while the ring bearer looked adorable in a custom Peter Pan lace top with faint blue, organza shorts and knee-high socks with oxfords.

At Grace Church, the two were wed in an Episcopalian service with both Episcopal and Catholic priests. “It was important to us to represent both of our families faiths,” Curry explains. “Our Catholic priest, Father Powell, is a dear friend of ours and having him play a role in our ceremony made our ceremony very special and personal.”

After being announced as husband and wife, everyone made their way to the Met Club for dinner and dancing. Dutch apple tarts were served after the delicious meal, as a nod to Marius’s heritage, along with their strawberry, vanilla, and lemon curd wedding cake by Nine Cakes.

Then the nine-piece band, Epic Soul, played a rousing selection of soul and Motown. The newlyweds had their first dance to “L.O.V.E.” and in a fun moment, Curry’s father took to the stage, purple electric guitar in-hand, and brilliantly performed “Walk of Life” by Dire Straits.

The dance floor was lively well into the night and revelry continued at the after-party, down the street—a sign of a great NYC wedding!
