There’s almost nothing I adore more than a good New York wedding. The kind of wedding where the city isn’t just a setting, but is the very center of a love story. So when this beautiful couple set out to plan their day, they chose to celebrate with an ode to old New York–the city at the very center or their story. See the whole day unfold with the stunning images from Trent Bailey Photography in the full gallery here.
From Trent Bailey Photography… Erica & Dave were married on one of the most beautiful November days New York has ever seen. The perfect weather was just the beginning of this beautiful day. One of Erica and Dave’s top priorities for the day was to have beautiful photos to remember the day by. They selected the penthouse of the Hudson hotel for it’s beautiful decor, sun filled rooms, and a terrace with beautiful views of Manhattan. We were so elated to see the getting ready location and were able to capture the first look as well as the family portraits on the terrace. The couple met just weeks before graduation from Columbia University so it was only fitting that they returned to the chapel on campus to exchange vows in front of family and friends. Erica said she “wanted the wedding to embody a romantic, vintage New York. New York City, our home, was the perfect landscape for our wedding as we had the opportunity to incorporate so many personal touches.” They chose Central Park, one of their favorite New York locations, as the background for photographs with their wedding party. We gathered with the bridal party on the very bridge where Dave proposed and then we danced the night away at the Central Park Boathouse.
From the Bride…When my husband and I started to plan our New York wedding, my first priority was to find the perfect wedding photographer. I wanted to find someone who could capture the emotion of our wedding day in a beautiful, timeless style and Trent & Dara exceeded my expectations. They worked together seamlessly on our wedding day to produce a gorgeous collection of photographs that we will share with our family for generations.
