Sarah and Douglas
Sarah and Douglas reached out to our team for help planning their NYC elopement. They knew they wanted an all-inclusive package that would allow them to just show up and get hitched! They wanted a beautiful location that offered several different backdrops for their wedding photos including the skyline and waterfront.
Our all-inclusive elopement packages were created to fulfill the frequent requests from our wedding clients for a simple and affordable hourly wedding package. Our photographers love shooting elopements throughout NYC and Brooklyn Bridge Park is one of their favorites because of the beautiful scenery and convenient location!
Sarah and Douglas’ day was perfect, from the intimate ceremony on the water in Brooklyn Bridge Park to the romantic newlywed photos throughout the park after! Keep reading to find out more about how the adorable pair met, why they chose Brooklyn Bridge Park for their elopement and what advice they would give to other couples considering a NYC elopement!
How did we meet & fall in love?
We met in college at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. Doug was from New York and came to SIUE on a baseball scholarship. I was in a sorority, so it was the “cool” thing to do to date the baseball players.
Why did we choose to elope?
Doug is a cop and I am a nurse. We don’t have “normal people” schedules, so we just kind of went for it. The pressure of people’s opinions of what we needed to do was getting to be too much, and neither Doug or I like a bunch of attention on us anyways.
What made us choose Brooklyn Bridge Park?
It is beautiful and the views are breathtaking. I love the water and the skyline, so that gave me the best of both worlds.
What advice would you give to other couples considering an elopement?
DO IT. Do what makes you and your significant other happy. Don’t let people’s opinions on what YOU should do get in the way of your happiness. Eloping was the best decision for both of us! It was so easy and SO much less pressure :)
