Another wonderful wedding weekend in New York City for us! Can you pinch me next time you see me because it’s incredible that we get invited into these weddings that are held in such rad places. Lynsey and Elwood’s wedding was the final wedding of our proper wedding season of 2017 and it was SUCH a good finale. (We have a couple curtain calls with 4 more weddings in the year that you’ll see on the blog soon but Lynsey and Elwood were the exclamation point to the end of our main season).
They both got ready in the hotel where everyone was staying, guests and photographer included, then everyone took a bus over to Prospect Park. It was the weekend of Halloween so the park was buzzing with kids dresses up for the holiday, which added a little quirk to the day, in the best way. The couple had their first look on the bridge overlooking the venue, the Prospect Park Boathouse. The boathouse had been in the news this season for a nightmare vanishing caterer, that Lynsey and Elwood had to personally workaround for their own wedding. Watch this news clip. Poor things right? Thankfully Bon Soir swooped in to save the day and everyone was fed and happy. I’m getting ahead of myself here though… first look. Amid all the costumed supermans, and Minnie mouses, they had their first look. It was so cute and I’ll never forget how stinkin’ happy Elwood was to see Lynsey. Not long after, they had their ceremony, as the sun set on NYC. Of course, there was dancing, cake, and music… but there was also a cigar rolling station, a gift from Lynsey to Elwood. I’m so glad we were there. Thanks Kate and Em for hooking us all up!!!
