NYC Elopement and Tribeca Grill Wedding: Kristin and Samir

Tatiana and I love NYC elopements — so much that we had one. Simply making your way through New York life is stressful enough, and it can be a blessing to strip away some of the complications of a big wedding and focus on the closest friends and family.

Of course, this means there are going to be a lot of other people interested in what’s going on, and Kristin and Samir solved this in a very modern way, making it our first Facebook Live’d wedding.

They brought impeccable style and child-like joy to a warm winter day, making even the more-than-a-bit-DMV-like environment of the New York City Marriage Bureau a beautiful, emotional scene. We traipsed around Lower Manhattan with them a bit before heading to a small family dinner at the Tribeca Grill.

Brooklyn engagement: Gina and Pat

We love Brooklyn parks … all of the greenery and glory of Manhattan Parks, and far, far fewer random people moseying around in the background of photos. This is especially true for people like Gina and Pat, who were willing to brave Owl’s Head Park on a blustery winter day in nothing more than sweaters and jeans. We warmed up with a quick indoor session at the Brooklyn Firefly.

Gina headed the astonishingly great CxRA staff who catered our wedding, and so we’re doubly excited to document hers in the (we hope) warmer month of August.
