In her Ode to the Ritz, Joy Proctor describes, "A faint whisper of powder comes across your nose. Its notes are distinguished, mature, opulent. Light billows through oversized windows gilded in gold hardware, dancing as if it were flirting with the smoke of a candle. The sound of Ella Fitzgerald plays as you become lost in a dream. This is the Ritz."

At the hotel's Grand Jardin Terrace, with stylish hotel guests as onlookers, we photographed our bride who was full of confidence, poise, and charm in her modern gown designed by Rime Arodaky and gorgeous couture hair and makeup from Harold James. In an adjacent suite nearby, magnificent in its belle époque design, we captured the most luxurious details from a sophisticated tabletop to stunning floral blooms.
