Lovely Loeb Boathouse Wedding Day
Clouds and rain couldn’t stop the joy radiating from Myriam and Steve on the day of their Loeb Boathouse wedding! The Central Park Boathouse is one of my favorite NYC wedding venues, and it was so much fun seeing Myriam and Steve bring their romantic style to this classic NYC landmark. Every moment of their wedding day was filled with laughter and love as they began their greatest adventure together!
Wedding Morning at the Loews Regency Hotel
The Loews Regency Hotel made for a really fun getting ready location. Each of the hotel’s suites is uniquely decorated with a different theme. I loved that Myriam and her bridesmaids filled their room with confetti balloons! The mismatched pink and floral bridesmaid dresses were perfect for this summer wedding, and Myriam’s own Pronovias wedding dress was stunning! Myriam’s romantic curls fell over her shoulders, which were covered in the delicate lace flowers of her gown. While Myriam and her bridesmaids completed their finishing touches, Steve got ready in his own suite with his groomsmen. After a morning full of anticipation and fun, it was finally time for Myriam and Steve’s first look!
First Look with a View
Myriam and Steve shared their first look on the wrap-around balcony outside of Steve’s room and his huge smile when he saw Myriam for the first time really said it all. He was totally wowed and thought she looked so beautiful! I absolutely loved capturing their first look against the gorgeous NYC backdrop. The skies were cloudy, but Myriam and Steve’s love lit up the terrace! The two joined hands as they made their way to Central Park for more wedding photos.
Central Park Wedding Day Photos
Following their first look, Myriam and Steve traveled to Central Park for their NYC wedding day photos. I had such a great time photographing Myriam and Steve! This couple really is the epitome of cool. They laugh easily, enjoy traveling, and always seem to have fun together. We had the chance to capture portraits at some of my all of my favorite Central Park wedding photo locations: Bethesda Fountain, Bethesda Terrace, The Lake, and Bow Bridge. It was a perfect summer afternoon, even the rain showers couldn’t put a damper on this happy day!
Loeb Boathouse Wedding Ceremony
After capturing Myriam and Steve’s Central Park wedding photos, it was time for their beautiful ceremony! Their family and friends gathered as Myriam made her way down the aisle towards Steve, his eyes shining. Myriam and Steve said their vows beneath a gorgeous floral arch. Their ceremony was full of so much love! After their first kiss, Myriam and Steve made their way back down the aisle and to the dock for a romantic boat ride for two.
Celebrating in a Central Park Gondola
One of my favorite moments was the boat ride to Bow Bridge following Myriam and Steve’s beautiful Central Park boathouse ceremony. It was quiet, but full of newlywed excitement! The gondola ride gave Myriam and Steve the chance to spend their first moments as husband and wife alone, soaking up all the wonderful possibilities of their new adventure!
Central Park Boathouse Wedding Reception
The Loeb Boathouse wedding reception was a perfect blend of soft, romantic details and classic NYC style. Vases dripping with pink and white blossoms adorned every table. The layered wedding cake by Momofuku looked absolutely delicious! The Gotham Project band was amazing and the dance floor was packed all night! After celebrating with their family and friends, Myriam and Steve ended their wedding night with romantic backlit photos on the Bethesda Terrace. The two shared a sweet kiss as they celebrated the first night of their new adventure as husband and wife!
