When Bill emailed me to see if I was available to photograph his Brooklyn elopement to Debbie, he sent along this snapshot of the two of them so I could see their fun side. That is, in fact, a vibrator strapped to his arm. They were dressed up as 80's songs for a Halloween party; he was 1984's "Everything She Wants" by Wham! and she was "Devil Inside" by INXS from 1987.
I was pretty excited to meet them.
Two friends came along to their Brooklyn Bridge Park elopement, where Judie Guild officiated their ceremony. Right as they were getting into place, a tiny dog trotted up to wish them well.
During their vows, Bill surprised Debbie with one of her favorite songs being played via iPhone while he held up the lyrics on pre-written cards, Bob Dylan style. After they were officially husband and wife we walked across the park taking photos with the iconic Brooklyn Bridge + Lower Manhattan skyline in the background. Then we hopped on the East River Ferry to head across the water to Manhattan. It was a quick ride, but we managed to snap a few photos during it; my favorite is Bill holding down Debbie's dress.
Once we were in Manhattan there, we went down the few blocks from the pier to Fraunces Tavern where everyone said "cheers!" with a drink (this is the place to go if you like history and beer; they have 18 craft brews on tap in additio to their really fun cocktail menu).
