Today’s featured Little Black Book photographers, Britney Gardner and Joe Rumore shoot weddings from coast to coast! This one ~ just happened to be in New York City on an unseasonably warm spring day. However, the bride, Melane, didn’t mind the heat one bit … she’s a Texas girl at heart!
She and Ryan asked 30 of their closest friends and family to fly to New York with them to celebrate their marriage in Central Park!
The morning of the wedding, Melane’s bridesmaids were busily putting the flowers together while hair, make-up and the final details were being attended to …
Meanwhile, at Camp Ryan …
… and then the final reveal … that romantic “first look”…
Melane and Ryan headed outside into the hustle and bustle of New York City for a flurry of photos to commemorate the day.
And then onto their final destination … Central Park. But first, a few more pre-wedding shots from Britney and Joe of turn loose the art …
What an unbelievably pretty wedding venue!!
And then off ~ in true New York style ~ to an intimate dinner at Sarabeth’s Central Park South.
Britney asked Melane what the best part about the whole day was. She replied, “Saying the vows we wrote to each other … and involving our family and friends in the ceremony. My sister and brother-in-law led us in the traditional vows as we repeated after them and a friend officiated.”
Ryan and Melane’s wedding came in right around $8000 … a perfect example of how to pull-off a budget wedding in high style! Our best wishes to you both!
