Central Park Engagement With a Frenchie

Give me Central Park, an adorable couple plus a grumpy little Frenchie named Abe and I’ll give you a smile as wide as my screen. Of course, the amazing photos from Vicki Grafton only ups the ante, and some time in this gallery equals a Friday well spent!

From Vicki Grafton… Rebecca and Danny’s Spring engagement in Central Park with their frenchie pup Abe. They currently live in NY while Becca gets her law degree and are planning their fall wedding near Becca’s home town in PA.

Manhattan Elopement at Eventi Hotel

To know me is to know that I love elopements.  And I mean I love elopements.  There’s just something about jetting away to a cozy locale and saying “I do” with just your closest friends and family that makes my heart happy.  And this gorgeous Manhattan affair captured by Gaspar Photography?  It’s everything you expect an elopement to be: totally elegant, totally intimate and totally pretty.  See it here.


From Gaspar Photography… Patricia who is originally from England had since settled in Florida where she had another chance at love when she met Rick. His outgoing personality mixed with her sweet subtle demeanor made for a perfect match. When they decided to make things official they decided NYC would be the perfect spot! With a few close friends (one being her sister that came all the way from England) they were married on a winter’s afternoon in the gorgeous Eventi Hotel.

We brought the outside in on this chilly day by having the ceremony in the hotel’s heated terrace.

The couple and their friends hit the town enjoying dinner, drinks and a broadway show!

Simple and Elegant Bouquet Inspiration + WIUP

Hello, lovelies! Alas, another week has come and gone. But whatever the weekend has waiting, we wanted to leave a good SMP taste in your mouth with some stunning florals from the talented ladies at Flower Girl NYC. Photographer Marjorie Prvl stumbled upon the Lower East Side establishment and, lucky for us, teamed up to create quite the gallery. So go. Be free. And take time to smell (er…look at) the roses.

From Marjorie Prvl Photography… In my search to expand my portfolio, I came across the talented ladies over at Flower Girl NYC and reached out to them. I asked them if they were interested in having me stop by the shop so that I could photograph a few of their bridal arrangements and they happily agreed. Their shop is located in the Lower East Side of New York. They crafted these simple but gorgeous arrangements for me to capture. Enjoy!
