Clubbing Downtown

On Saturday, our sweet, dear friends Joanna "Cup of Joe" Goddard and Alex "Sunday Styles" Williams tied the knot in one of New York's most spectacular venues - the Downtown Association building at 60 Pine Street.  Joanna, a mere slip of a gal, wore an off-white J.Crew halter, which looked wildly perfect with her ballerina body and side bun.  Alex wore a navy double-vented suit with his now trademark beard and glasses.  Her English uncle Hamish officiated the ceremony, which included a great '60s soundtrack, making it all seem like a scene plucked from a Working Title Films romantic comedy.  We spent the cocktail hour in the incredible Reading Room, which makes me want wood paneling in my apartment so badly I could cry (and don't even get me started on that ceiling!)

Porter has assisted photographers at a bazillion New York weddings; this is her favorite venue, hands down.

Porter befriended this guy who guards the fourth floor game room.

    Spectacular venue - I'm not sure if it's any consolation, but I suppose you could burn Roi Soleil Cire Trudon candles which smell like the Mirror Gallery and the wooden floors of Versailles. At least it should smell grandiose.
