Carroll Gardens Wedding

Londoners Danielle and Nick eloped to New York City this fall on a gorgeous day, and surprised me when they decided to have their wedding in Brooklyn. It turns out she's lived here before years ago, and knew the secret: Brooklyn is awesome. This was their first trip to NYC together! 

They found me in the MOST fun way, too. Have you heard of the blog Cup of Jo? I've been reading for years, and someone mentioned me in the comments section as being an elopement photographer; Danielle followed that comment to my website, and the rest is history. Thank you, kind blog comment-leaver. You are excellent.  

When I asked Danielle and Nick why they eloped, they answered:

"We have such a big set of family and friends that a wedding day at home would have involved a lot of planning and stress ... This way we get to have a lovely, fairly stress-free day just the two of us and then invite everyone we can to a big party at home."

Perfect. We started off at their Williamsburg Air BnB, followed by a ceremony on the pebble beach at Brooklyn Bridge Park, officiated by Judie Guild. Then we headed to Carroll Gardens where we took photos on the classic Brooklyn streets before I walked them to their restaurant Prime Meats to have their celebratory lunch.
