Kate skipped the white wedding gown and eloped in Manhattan in a gorgeous blue cocktail frock, complete with lovely hair accessory to match. I arrived in their hotel room to them sipping champagne while Kate got hair and makeup done, and I borrowed the cork for a photo. Her rings are vintage and belonged to her grandmother.

We went to the roof of their downtown hotel, which had a jaw-dropping view of the river and the World Trade Center from 57 stories up, and then headed to their ceremony in Battery Park, and finished with some classic photos around City Hall.
