Erika and Thearith
All the way from Texas, this adorable couple and some of their closest friends came to NY for their wedding celebration. They chose our popular all-inclusive elopement package that includes NYC elopement photography and video coverage, an officiant to perform the ceremony and the permits needed for a Central Park wedding. The perfect option for couples who don’t want a lot of fuss on their big day!
Our NYC elopement photographer and videographer started with the beautiful bride as she got ready at the midtown Novotel Hotel with her bridesmaids. She wore a flattering lace A-Line gown and her hair was styled in romantic waves. Her bridal bouquet was an assortment of red and white roses. The happy couple chose Shakespeare Garden for their ceremony. Thearith awaited his bride with one of our amazing officiants, Reverend Samora of Common Ground Ceremonies. He looked wedding ready in a navy suit and black bow tie. They proclaimed their love for each other and exchanged personalized vows in the garden as their friends and family watched and they were pronounced Husband and Wife, from which moment we made beautiful NYC elopement photography.
Eloping in Central Park doesn’t mean you have to forgo some of the traditional wedding rituals like the tossing of the bouquet. Our beautiful Bride got creative and threw her bouquet from the terrace of Belvedere Castle to the eager ladies below. (what a great idea!) After wards our team spent some time with the newlyweds in the park capturing romantic portraits at popular locations like Ladies Pavilion (our couples often get married under this arch), Belvedere Castle and by the famous Central Park lake.
In true New York style, our team and the newlyweds hopped in a yellow taxi cab to cross the bridge over to our favorite borough, Brooklyn! Erika and Thearith took some fun photos on Brooklyn Bridge and since their wedding day was a Tuesday, they didn’t have to navigate the usual crowd at the popular location.
Brooklyn Bridge park is a another great option for couples who want to elope in NYC but prefer a less crowded option. Our officiants have married hundreds of couples by the famous Jane’s carousel and on the pebble beach nestled between the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges.
We ended the day with the happy couple capturing some artistic shots in the Dumbo area on the cobble stone streets and on Washington Street with the Manhattan Bridge in the back (isn’t that photo magazine worthy!? )
All in all, their NYC elopement photography and video package was the perfect way to commemorate their wedding day. We were so honored to be a part of it all and wish them a lifetime of happiness!
