Charlie and Lisa are a wonderful couple, and photographing their elopement was pure joy. We started out at the Helmsey Park Lane hotel where their north-facing, thirtieth story room gave me one of the most swoon-worthy views of Central Park that I'd ever seen. I pressed my nose to the glass for a few moments, taking it in.

Charlie fastened Lisa's bracelet, and then us girls kicked him out so she could slip on her dress. I helped zip up, then we headed down to the mezzanine for a romantic first look. After collecting parents in the lobby, a taxi took us the few blocks to the 72nd entrance of Central Park where we met Rev. Mary-Rose Engle, and then our entire party and walked over to Cherry Hill in the middle of the park for their wedding.

I helped choose their exact ceremony location, selecting a flat-ish spot on the hill with a view of the Bow Bridge in the back. It was under an oak tree that looked to be about a hundred years old; "a good symbol for long-lasting love!" I quipped, and as it turned out that their selected reading mentioned a hundred years.

After their heartfelt vows were exchanged, we went to various spots in Central Park for wedding photos: the Mall, Bethesda fountain, and then back to the Bow Bridge and by the lake.

Congratulations Charlie and Lisa! Thank you for coming to New York to celebrate.
