And the weather geeks shall inherit the Earth.
Let’s back up a bit. For those of you who weren’t in NYC in June and especially July, it was a miserable swamp of high humidity and 95+ degree temperature. I spent months trying to keep my clients and myself hydrated, doing shoots at 9 p.m. just so it was cool enough to go outside, and so forth.
But for this wedding, I had a ringer. John works for the National Weather Service, and specifically picked out this date based on prevailing weather patterns. And it was beautiful. The first truly gorgeous day in months. You want to pay attention when John talks about the weather.
And it was a beautiful wedding at the Garrison to match, with great views and a tranquility that you have to get out of the city to get. It was a great, low-key day — after the ceremony, the couple made sure the whole wedding party stopped for ice cream.
One more thing: Maria and John’s kids are probably going to live longer than most oak trees. One of their grandparents was there to celebrate her 100th birthday, and she made an appearance on the dance floor! Another grandmother couldn’t stay off the floor all night. Man, I want those genes.
