Vanessa and Philippe
One of the most diverse cities in the world, Manhattan (also known as New York, New York) offers endless options for engaged couples seeking an elopement location. While Central Park and Dumbo, Brooklyn (specifically Brooklyn Bridge Park) tend to be pretty popular for outdoor wedding ceremonies, unique options like Roosevelt Island are becoming more and more popular! Long time friend of Le Image and officiant, Rev Samora reached out on behalf of the couple Vanessa & Phillippe to book a photographer and videographer for their “island elopement”.
Roosevelt Island’s Four Freedom Park offered the perfect location for their intimate ceremony with views of Manhattan in the background. The two exchanged vows which included a hand tying ceremony and a “zoom audience” of their friends and family that couldn’t attend in person. The bride looked gorgeous in a classic silk wedding dress, blue kitten heels and a bouquet of dried wild flowers while her groom was picture perfect in a navy blue suit.
Our photographer and video team captured great footage of the newlyweds throughout the island after their ceremony. We were honored to share in their day!
