Classically Fun Central Park Boathouse Wedding
You can’t get much more perfect than Central Park in the summer! Melissa and Mike’s fun-filled Central Park Boathouse wedding was truly such an incredible celebration! From the personal vows exchanged as the sun set over Central Park, to the love and joy that could be felt from having family and friends in one room, everything really did come together perfectly.
NYC Wedding Getting Ready Photos
Melissa and her bridesmaids began the day at The Maxwell Hotel. The girls had so much fun getting ready together in the cutest floral robes! I loved the soft pink mismatched bridesmaid dresses Melissa chose to go along with her shimmering BHLDN wedding gown. Melissa’s friends surrounded her with love and excitement as they helped her into her gorgeous Jimmy Choos. Just around the corner, Mike was spending the morning with his groomsmen at The Kimberly Hotel! The guys were joined by a very special guest: Lucy, the couple’s sweet pup!

After a fun-filled wedding morning, Melissa made her way to the Kimberly Hotel rooftop. The views were absolutely stunning! As soon as Mike turned around, he was in awe of his beautiful bride! The moment was intimate, emotional, and filled with so much joy! Melissa and Mike enjoyed a moment alone before traveling to Central Park for more beautiful wedding photos.
