Amy & George, Bryant Park: I Promise From the Heart

Amy and George got married this past summer in New York City. Although not my first Manhattan-based couple, it was my first Manhattan wedding, and the reception was be at the legendary Bryant Park (clearly I watch too much Project Runway). I met Amy and George through Katie & Ryan, so I already knew how much fun they could be at a wedding! They did not disappoint! There were so many wonderful little details to their day. They included all of their nieces and nephews in the wedding, so they were surrounded by adorable flower girls and ring bearers (as well as one beautiful junior bridesmaid). The favors were bottles of hot sauce with a label that said “You’re Hot, Call Me,” which is apparently the note Amy left on George’s car when they first met. How great is that story?

We met up with the bride and groom and the rest of their wedding party at the Flatiron Building and used the sidewalk space out front for our portraits. We were even able to see the Empire State Building in some of our shots! It was so very romantically New York City!

Bud Maltin Metropolitan Music provided the night’s soundtrack and Amy and George’s wedding guests danced all night. George’s nieces and nephews even put together a performance of a Justin Bieber song. It doesn’t get any cuter than that! And there’s always lots of singing into spoons. One of these days I’ll have to find out how that started, but for now I’m just happy with all of the awesome photos it gets me!

    Beautiful photos. I don’t know if you knew Bryant Park before it was rejuvenated — but wow! what a Gift to the City it is now! Flatiron as backdrop is iconic. Great, great photos — love the candid ones of the bride and groom — Brava.
