Diego and his girlfriend Marcia planned a trip to New York City from South America. Unbeknownst to Marcia, Diego had also planned to propose to her with the help of A Central Park Wedding.
A romantic picnic in Central Park on a perfect day in August
First step was arranging a perfect picnic, with the pros of perfect picnics, Perfect Picnic NYC.
The plan was then for Diego to tell Marcia he had a special picnic planned for just the two of them in Central Park and part of the picnic "package" included a photographer who would stop by for a minute to grab a few shots of them hanging out in the park amongst their gorgeous spread...This is where I come in...
I approached the couple for their "picnic portraits" and Diego went for it - getting down on one knee and asking Marcia to marry him.
Nothing says "I got married in New York" than a killer skyline view of lower Manhattan AND the Brooklyn Bridge!
Christian and Carolin wanted to do things a bit differently when they flew over from Europe with the bestest friends and family in tow to tie the knot at Brooklyn Bridge Park. But that was just the beginning...we then partied our way into Manhattan with celebratory champagne in the limousine and more photos at Grand Central Terminal and Times Square.

I love EVERYTHING about this wedding. The beautiful deep colors, the bride and groom's impeccable bold but elegant styling and of course the beautiful Conservatory Garden at Central Park.
We were blessed with a nice warm day and overcast skies which gave us the most beautiful soft light and really made the colors of the gardens pop.
The styling of this wedding is really one of my favorites, from the colors they chose to the breathtaking cascading bouquet with roses and peonies...this wedding story is a MUST SEE if you are looking for some wedding inspiration.

These guys certainly timed it right with their Autumn wedding in Central Park when the foliage was in PEAK color!
Starting with a ceremony at Gapstow Bridge in Central Park, we then hit up a few more spots in the park then headed down to Top of the Rock, the Meatpacking District, and Times Square for more wedding photos

Brian met Sladjana in a cafe in Austria while Brian was on a birthday trip with friends. He was standing behind her waiting to get a coffee and just decided to ask her out! She, a native Austrian, said yes to the bold American gentleman. It wasn't soon after that Brian moved to Europe so they could be together. When it came time for their wedding they decided to celebrate back on his home turf with a wedding at Central Park's Belvedere Castle built in 1865. Family and friends came together from all over Europe and the U.S. to celebrate the lovely occasion.

Martin and Rosina came all the way from Germany to elope at Ladies Pavilion in Central Park. It was a day for just the two love birds...and me, too, of course.
THE perfect, quiet spot for a wedding in Central Park
We started off in Central Park - with a little bit of rain for dramatic effect (a great excuse to break out the "I love NY" umbrellas!) with a private ceremony at Ladies Pavilion.
Their look: A great mix of formal and fun - vintage, too.
Rosina: A formal floor-length sleeveless, high-neck lace dress. Balanced with a denim jacket, petite bouquet and vintage inspired drop earrings. Make-up was natural with relaxed romantic waves for the hair.
Martin: Blue is the new black! A sharp woven blue suit - brought up a notch with a formal bow-tie.
After the ceremony we walked over to Bethesda Terrace, which because of a few drops of rain we had nearly to ourselves!
Then it was off to Brooklyn for some shots at Brooklyn Bridge Park and D.U.M.B.O. area...
