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!!!

O my Lord have mercy do we love these two…
Nicole and Jeff are mega in love and everyone knows it. Being around them is like being around a reminder of what it looks like to be enamored with one another while being completely comfortable with who you are together. Its just right you guys. Just right. We had been looking forward to this wedding since before Nicole had even met Jeff. No lie. We adored Nicole and hoped that one day when she met the truly amazing man that she would eventually marry, that we would be there to witness and photograph it. Dreams do come true!
The wedding took place at the Metropolitan Building in Queens, NY. It’s a huge funky loft space that is what NYC wedding dreams are made of. Views of the Queens, and lots of cool old furniture were everywhere. During the ceremony, they joked about Tinder and guests coming ALL THE WAY from Manhattan, and before you knew it, they were official. Drinks, toasts, dinner, and dancing were up next… including a first dance that honestly made me cry, (which rarely happens during a first dance). Moon River and Close Slow Snuggly Dancing apparently gets me. <3
One very important detail to point out: They are BOTH redheads. Dan wanted me to point that out.
