Ahh, the elopement. Quite possibly my favorite kind of wedding ever, and elevated to the next wedding when it all goes down in NYC. Invite Brilliant Event Planning to do the job, Face Time Beauty Concierge for the prep, surprise your family minutes before the ceremony, and make sure Brklyn View Photography is on hand to capture it all, and you’ve got the recipe for goosebumps, mile-wide smiles, and tears galore.
Fromthe photographer… Have you ever kept a big secret? No, I mean a super big secret for more than six months? Well, that’s exactly what Jess & Adi did! When Adi asked Jess to marry him earlier this year, he had no idea that their wedding would be taking place six months before their actual wedding in December. A few months into their engagement, Jess decided that she couldn’t wait any longer and wanted to elope in July. The couple had Brilliant Event Planning help them pull off their plan. They invited their parents to join them at the Surrey Hotel for a wine tasting but when they walked in the door, they let them in on the secret! There was not a dry eye was in the room. On the rooftop terrace, Jess and Adi read aloud their very touching and tearful vows before exchanging their rings and becoming husband and wife. It was a simple, intimate ceremony and absolutely perfect. Afterwards, we walked through Central Park to take a few photos of the beaming newlyweds. Jess’s gorgeous BHLDN Aiguille gown from Anthropologie looked like it was made for her! She even helped to design her own bouquet and boutonniere for Adi. Love in Central Park is simply amazing. I am so honored to have been there to photograph & witness their amazing elopement. Congratulations to Jess & Adi!!
