It’s idyllic, lush, classic, majestic, quaint, and romantic; a whole other world of color, flora, and fauna in the middle of the concrete jungle that is New York City. If it wasn’t real, it would seem to have been conjured in a dream. That’s what makes Central Park so special, and it’s what makes it one of the most magical places to get married.
Sylvia and David reached out to me a little over a month before their wedding, looking for an officiant for their Central Park wedding. They are the sweetest people and couple and at Honeybreak Officiants, we are always so grateful to connect with good people - plus it’s such a fun bonus to add more of these last minute elopements on the calendar!
Their wedding date fell in the middle of a pretty rainy week in September, but it was clear skies and 80° for their day, only! They got married at Wagner’s Cove surrounded by a small group of their family and friends. Their adorable puppy was there too, and she was so eager to see them as they descended the stairs and became visible for their family’s “first look” of them in their bridal attire. They looked amazing, of course, but the best was the way they looked at each other!
Sometimes, the most peaceful spots in the city are found in the most unexpected places. Like a hidden nook on an island separating 6 lanes of traffic. This spot holds special meaning for K & R, who decided it would also be where they would say 'I do.' When we arrived, I thought for sure we would get honked at from passersby and SnapChatted by the occasional pedestrian, but it was as if standing in plain sight ironically made us invisible. And this is just what K & R wanted - to exchange handwritten vows at their private week day elopement, in the middle of Madison Avenue, shrouded by the greenery of their secret 'venue,' as the cars zoomed past unaware.
