We were supposed to meet in Brooklyn to begin their elopement photos at 11:30 am. At 11:29, the sky over DUMBO broke open and dumped buckets on us. I scurried under the awning of the Brooklyn Ice Cream company and waited. 

Cassandra and Richard basically swam over to me, and the rain let up just enough that I was able to get some photos of them under my perfect-for-photos umbrella. Most clear umbrellas are a bubble shape, but this is a huge golf umbrella and perfect for two people.

We made it through DUMBO in between the rain that was teetering on and off, and onto the Brooklyn Bridge for a few quick photos before going into City Hall in Manhattan where they had their ceremony.

After emerging from City Hall to a now gorgeous day, I decided last minute to follow them to TriBeCa, where they were having lunch at Laconda Verde (it's where Colin and Doris ate after their wedding). It's so pretty there, I couldn't resist a few more photos.
