Loeb Boathouse Wedding in Central Park

Bride and groom portraits in Central Park

Can you believe 2017 is right around the corner? It seems like the year flew by in a flash, with a few very long months spent on the election. As a diversion from the political upheaval all around us, I present to you the details of Carolina and Erich’s Loeb Boathouse wedding in Central Park. This was a laid back, daytime wedding — and most notably — my last big wedding of the year in New York. (Next stop: Palm Beach for Rachelle and Brice’s wedding!) Let’s celebrate the calm together, shall we?

On Friday I had the pleasure of photographing Nancy and Reggie’s beautiful wedding at the Cop Cot in Central Park. Their ceremony was a stellar example of how to get married in Central Park. While most people assume you can simply show up and get hitched anywhere in the park (you basically can), there are some tricks you need to know to before planning your Central Park wedding:

Ladies Pavilion wedding ceremony by NYC wedding photojournalist, Kelly Williams

Last October I was contacted by a delightful couple from the UK, who wanted to get hitched while on shore leave from their cruise.  The premise sounded zany enough (and right up my alley), but the reality was even more wonderful.  Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Emma and Paul — my craziest wedding of the year!

How to Create a Photo Book: From Start to Finish

Central Park wedding by NYC wedding photographer, Kelly Williams

Hi everyone!  I just mailed my client Jenni her photo book, and I wanted to share with you the process from start to finish.  First, let’s talk about the difference between photo books and albums.  All of my albums are created through Couture Books. Each is handmade, with specially designed fabric covers. In comparison, the photo books are less ornate, but offer a great value if you are looking for an additional way to preserve your memories for say, parents or members of your bridal party. The photo books I use are created by Blurb.

Becky & Jim: A Central Park Wedding

A Central Park wedding beside the Bethesda Fountain by photographer Kelly Williams

Talk about a whirlwind romance!  Becky & Jim met late last year in an Irish bar on a rainy Sunday night.  This chance meeting led to love, and Becky and Jim officially tied the knot in classic New York fashion beside the Bethesda Fountain in Central Park.  While the couple is planning a larger church ceremony in the spring or summer for their families, along with a party in Ireland for Jim’s clan, this was a chance for their nearest and dearest to get together and watch the couple say their ‘I Do’s.’  Check out the fancy horse and carriage which brought the bride and her friends to Bethesda Terrace, as well as the Scottish bagpipers who just happened to be in the park at the same time as the wedding.  A little touch of home (UK) for Jim.  Congrats to Becky & Jim, and enjoy the pics from their Central Park wedding!

Brian & Niki: Central Park Wedding Photos

Brian and Niki's wedding photos in Times Square by NYC wedding photojournalist, Kelly Williams

Congrats to Brian and Niki, who traveled all the way from the UK to get married in Central Park on June 6th!  Their intimate wedding was a lovely testament to their beautiful relationship.  The ceremony, conducted by Rev. Annie Lawrence, was held on Umpire Hill overlooking the amusement park area.  Max, Brian and Niki’s son, was thrilled with the balloons and carousel which the whole family enjoyed immediately after the brief ‘I do’s.’  After the wedding, we stopped by Times Square for a few portraits of the bride and groom.  Enjoy their lovely Central Park wedding photos!
