Beth and Pete truly had a FABULOUS NYC wedding! They were married on June 29th, seven years to the day from when they began dating. This fun-loving couple, along with 35 of their closest family and friends, traveled from New Zealand and the UK for a day full of surprises. Beth and Pete decided to keep the venue and all the details of the day a secret from their guests! Excitement built as a school bus pulled up to the Ritz Carlton in Battery Park to escort guests to the venue. They took in views of South Street Seaport and the Statue of Liberty as they crossed over the Brooklyn Bridge. Cheers could be heard as they pulled up to the iconic River Cafe! The sun danced across the Manhattan skyline creating a breathtaking view for Beth and Pete’s ceremony. After a champagne toast at cocktail hour, a gospel choir showed up and gave an incredible performance! A vintage taxi drove Beth and Pete down cobblestone streets to our portrait locations where we captured some of the most beautiful sunset portraits EVER! Sweet toasts were given, fairy lights twinkled in the surrounding gardens, and a miniature chocolate Brooklyn Bridge made the perfect sweet treat at the end of the evening.
Thank you Beth and Pete for allowing me to be a part of your magical NYC wedding and to Mekina and Cinnamon for helping me capture it! I hope you enjoy reliving many of the beautiful moments from your incredible day below.
