Fiona and Manuel came to NYC from Spain to have an intimate elopement. They made special postcards to send to their family back home and Fiona was on Skype with her mom while she was getting ready. They had a simple ceremony in Central Park with just an officiant present. It started to rain about 5 minutes after the ceremony so they took cover under the stairs in Central Park. There, a violinist was playing so they requested the song “Moon River” and that is where they had their first dance, just the two of them alone amongst a crowd of strangers. They continued their day being driven around by a vintage checkered cab and stopped at NYC staples like Magnolia’s Bakery, Tiffany’s, Times Square, and Brooklyn Bridge. We are overloading on romance over here!

Pooja and Ben met while Ben was in town visiting a mutual friend and they say, “It was one of those ‘the crowd parted’ moments,” minus the cheesy rom-com to follow. For their engagement session, they wandered around Brooklyn and the Brooklyn Bridge, where Ben proposed. With such a cool setting, these photos look so effortless.

From their Photographer: Pooja and Ben met while Ben was visiting a mutual friend. It was one of those “the crowd parted” moments- but without the cheesy 90′s Romance Comedy where the guy has to win the girls heart at the end.

We went all over in the Brooklyn area, starting off in DUMBO, Brooklyn Bridge Park, just before heading to Brooklyn Bridge, where Ben Proposed to Pooja. Pooja even included a DIY LOVE banner for the photos. :) From there, we headed off to their favorite ice cream shop- Farmacy Soda Fountain, and finished the day at Brooklyn Pub- BP= Ben and Pooja. :)

Natalie and Adam met during a study abroad in Spain, where the courtship began, kept in touch from different coasts when they returned, and rekindled the relationship when Natalie’s job landed her in LA with Adam. Their wedding was a combination of their style and taste, and the result was a “classic, city winter wedding with a rustic look and feel.” Their entire day was absolutely gorgeous from top to bottom. We’re in love with the lace Augusta Jones gown, Joanna August bridesmaid dresses paired with gloves and winter fur, vintage NY taxi cab limo, and succulent bouquets, to name a few highlights, but we promise you’re gonna swoon over this entire wedding.

Did you love the custom cake topper from yesterday’s wedding? The bride’s best friend, Liz Lomax, happens to be an incredibly talented, award-winning artist and illustrator, and she hand-sculpted a cake topper to look exactly like the couple on their wedding day, literally down to the bride’s handmade bouquet and engagement ring. She made the taxi cab the same style as the one the bride’s grandfather used to drive, also the same taxi that the groom tracked down years later (the exact medallion number) and arrived in to propose to his now wife. What a truly special cake topper that now sits safely in protected glass on a shelf in the couple’s home. We wanted to share some photos of the making of the cake topper. Seeing the process makes it even more special, to know the hard work that went into it, and you can even see Liz still painting finishing touches on the wedding day.

And the finished product!
