elopement

Robert & Michael | Central Park Elopement | New York, NY

Robert & Michael came up to NYC from Atlanta to elope on an absolutely beautiful fall day this past October. We bonded over our mutual love of dogs and strolled through the park to their ceremony spot at Shakespeare Garden. To be the only witness in such an intimate moment is truly awe-inspiring, as their sweet love was so calming to be around.

Thank you to the amazing officiant sister team at Once Upon A Vow for connecting us and congrats again to this handsome couple!

Natty & Morgan | Central Park Micro Wedding | New York, NY

Natty and Morgan first found my work on Offbeat Bride. It was easy to tell right away they were my kind of couple. I was immediately hooked at the mention of a fun, intimate ceremony, and a sequin dress! One of my favorite things about photographing such important moments is getting to know my couples and their love stories. As we emailed more and more, I saw how special and silly the love they share is.

On a bright and warm Monday morning, I met these two, their pastor, and six of their closest friends at Bethesda Terrace in Central Park. We walked around the fountain enjoying the sunshine, and they shared a classic NYC soft pretzel for breakfast. Once the ceremony began, everyone (including Olivia and me) started crying! No other couple has made me as emotional while reading their vows. It was the most heartfelt and loving union I’ve ever witnessed.

After the promises were made and rings exchanged, they shared their first dance as a married couple, followed by a champagne toast and group dance party. We strolled through Central Park, took the subway to Mom’s Kitchen & Bar for some “Bigmouth shakes”!

Congrats to Natty & Morgan on their new home, their marriage, and start of the rest of their lives together. Wishing you all the glittery, tattooed happiness in the world!
