Wish Upon a Micro-Wedding

Without question, New York is the cultural capital of the U.S. Indeed, one could argue that it is a cultural center for the entire world. The list of impressive art museums in the Big Apple is impressive including the Metropolitan, Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), Whitney, Guggenheim, Frick, and Jewish Museum, among many others. We boast superb dance companies ranging from the New York City Ballet and Alvin Ailey, just to name a few. Likewise, our musical treasures include the Metropolitan Opera, New York Philharmonic, Rose Jazz Center and so much more. The epicenter of our cultural offerings is most certainly Lincoln Center on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Lincoln Center was the dream of John D. Rockefeller and was created with the political vision and muscle of Robert Moses a half century ago. The U-shaped compound includes the David Koch Theatre, home of the New York City Opera and New York City Ballet on the southern side of the facility. Opposite Koch Theatre is the famed Alice Tully Hall, which is associated with the Julliard School of Music and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. The Center component of the Center is Avery Fisher Hall, home of the New York Philharmonic, which seats nearly 3,000 patrons at each concert. While there are additional structures of the Lincoln Center area, these form the anchor for New York performing arts.

One part of the grandeur of Lincoln Center is the vast plaza that sits between these three buildings. During the summer months, open air concerts and community dances are held in this sweeping area. At holiday time, soft, sparkling lights abound. This entire location is a sparkling crystal welcoming all. Squarely in the center of the promenade is the famous fountain of Lincoln Center, which could be a perfect backdrop for the nuptials of a Renaissance couple, who appreciates the arts. The fountain has always been beautiful but was recently renovated by Mark Fuller, the engineer of celebrity status who developed Water Entertainment Technologies (WET Design). Mr. Fuller is responsible for the creation of the most breathtaking fountains providing thrills around the world—from the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas to the Dubai Fountain in the United Arab Emirates. Why not re-create the romance of the Trevi Fountain in Roman Holiday and marry under the mist and magical spell of New York’s most famous cultural institution?
