My Guest on Today's Show: Bronson van Wyck

Posted by

Bronson van Wyck is one of New York City's top event planners, and I am delighted to have him as a guest on my radio show this week. As one of the founders of the environmental design and event production firm, van Wyck & van Wyck, Bronson has organized notable affairs, such as the 2000 Democratic National Convention, the Signing of the Dayton-Paris Peace Accords, The Hearst Tower Opening Gala, the opening of the Setai Fifth Avenue and the re-opening of the Plaza Hotel, and Sean Combs's 40th Birthday Party.

Don't miss the show at 4 P.M. today–live on SiriusXM 110. Below, I'd like to share a handful of photographs and flower arrangements from Bronson's inspiring portfolio.
