Laura and Eoghan came over from Ireland to get married in NYC. When their original restaurant plans fell through, they asked for suggestions for a new ceremony spot around Little Italy and the East Village. I sent over a list of a number of different locations and community gardens and the ended up going with the First Street Green Art Park! I’ve photographed portraits here, but never a ceremony, but it worked out brilliantly. I love when clients opt for unique backdrops and this was certainly it.
After a wander through the neighborhood for some fun photos we headed to the park for their ceremony. It was freezing on Saturday night, but these guys made it through. They were married in front of a huge heart mural surrounded by family and friends by Mirelle of Officiant NYC and then headed back to Gelso and Grand for a dinner party celebration.
Congratulations guys! More photos on the way soon!
