New York, NY – Jenny and Duncan’s Romantic Central Park & Wythe Hotel Wedding

Bride and Groom portraits on the East River Ferry

Jenny and Duncan were married in an incredibly sweet, intimate ceremony in the Shakespeare Garden in Central Park. I had such a fun time documenting their wedding, especially because there were so many unique touches that they added to the celebration — not least of which was the ferry ride from Manhattan to Williamsburg along with all of the wedding guests!

Jenny got ready at the Wythe Hotel, a gorgeous converted factory near the waterfront in Williamsburg. They held the reception there too, in the private dining room at Reynard.

Jenny hired a vintage Rolls Royce to travel from the Wythe Hotel to Central Park. I love the classic look (and I got to ride in the front! So fun, but a bit nerve wracking with no seatbelts!)

Their lovely ceremony was held in the Shakespeare Garden in Central Park. Another personal touch — their programs could be used as fans:)

This was one of my favorite parts of the whole day — Jenny and Duncan snuck away together for a minute after the ceremony. The pure joy and happiness of the moment was all over their faces!

I loved the soft, garden fresh feeling of her bouquet, not to mention her dress! The sheer details at the neckline are so perfect.

Jenny and Duncan found this cool mural on the walk over from the ferry to the hotel! Very NYC :) Of course we had to take a few shots with it.

Their reception at Reynard was the perfect finish to the celebration. Since the Wythe Hotel is a converted factory, the private dining room displays all of the original exposed brick with the factory markings, making for a really unique and beautiful atmosphere.
