I love this Christmas wedding! The Bride’s day began at The Royalton Hotel on W. 44th Street in Manhattan. The mini elevator ride and curvy hallways that lead me to the prep rooms, was like a trip to Six Flags!! Once everyone was dressed, the Groom and all of the guests walked two blocks over to Bryant Park for the Ceremony. The Christmas tree, shops and ice rink were up and running. There was no specific spot for the ceremony, so everyone kept up while we hoped and hunted for something near the tree. We found the perfect spot that was directly in front of the tree and it was empty! Once everyone was settled, the bride arrived. The groom was very emotional and I love authentic moments like these because you know he’s not faking, haha!
As soon as the ceremony began, a large crowd stopped to watch and take pictures! When they had their first kiss, the crowd cheered making the moment extra special! After a few pictures at Bryant Park Grill, everyone headed back to The Royalton Hotel where we took some wedding portraits in the lobby. When everyone was ready, we walked 3 blocks over to Aureole for the wedding reception! Aureole is just a half a block from Times Square on 42nd street and all of the blazing lights pour around the corner and lit up the entrance. Cocktail hour began with passed horderves of fresh raw oysters and fried shrimp!
The reception was laid back and started with a delicious 3 course meal. When dinner was finished, the speeches began and once again, so many happy emotions came flowing out of everyone! The couple cut the cake, ate the cake, and started their first day of forever!
