Bryant Park Grill Wedding
Tess and Michael contacted our studio seeking an affordable photography package with engagement shoot (great practice before the wedding) and photo booth for their big day. They were planning the perfect Manhattan wedding and wanted a stress free day. Their entire wedding timeline took place within the span of 5-city blocks and proves why less is more!
Our photographer started with the Bride at the Bryant Park Hotel (located across the street from their venue), as she got ready. He captured all the cute little details the bridesmaids set up for Tess like the “Team Bride” champagne glass and the love ribbons hanging from the ceiling (how cute!). The girls shared a drink while the Bride got her hair and makeup done. Tess chose a beautiful strapless cream-colored gown with beautiful lace embroidery. Her bridesmaids wore various styles of navy blue dresses and looked great!
Down the hall Michael got ready with his groomsmen and the mother of the groom helped get everyone picture perfect before heading out for Grand Central. He wore a black tuxedo and bow tie and finished the look with a simple floral boutonniere.
One of the great things about having everything close by is the saved travel expense (no wedding limo needed!). The Groom and his guys were able to walk over to Grand Central from the hotel for the first look. We love the candid photos our photographer captured of the Bride and Groom seeing each other for the first time! After a quick kiss the two took more photos in Grand Central by the famous clock and on the balcony as well. After wards the pair and their wedding party took classic photos on the steps of the New York Public Library before heading over to the venue
Bryant Park Grill, owned and managed by Ark Restaurants, offers couples a romantic park setting in the heart of midtown. The venue has 3 distinct spaces that can be used separately (accommodating up to 300 guests each) or combined for one large event for up to 1000 people (no need to cut the guests list!)
Tess and Michael chose the outdoor patio space for their ceremony. They exchanged personal vows under a floral arch as their family and friend cheered them on! After being pronounced Husband and Wife their guests enjoyed cocktails on the lawn of Bryant Park while the outdoor reception space was set up.
We loved the beautiful fresh floral centerpieces and elegant white table setting. The party was kicked off with the couple’s first dance and they enjoyed funny speeches and live music to celebrate!
Everyone loved our open-air photo booth. It’s the perfect addition to any reception and the unlimited prints double as party favors for your guests!
All in all this wedding celebration was perfect from start to finish. We were honored to be a part of it all!
