Valentine's Day Chic: My Parents' Wedding


My folks got hitched on February 15, 1974 uptown at St. James Episcopal Church, right next to the Polo "mansion" on Madison. My grandma Armene (who was a Norris at the time, I believe) hosted the reception in her Park Avenue apartment.  It's a shame that you can't see the incredible antelope-print rug in the curtained room below, but I do love that fur throw and the great herringbone floors (she has them again in her current place a few blocks north).  I should've probably held out until the actual anniversary for this post, but I'll use that occasion to highlight the honeymoon...
