Well, this is a first: I served as a witness at a City Hall wedding! It was a fun day photographing Karen and Ted as they said ‘I do’ downtown, though the day started with bigger wedding plans. But fear not, all’s well that ends with photos on the Brooklyn Bridge, as I always say. Find out why I had to do more than just take photos in today’s blog post.
I had the pleasure of photographing Karen and Ted, who finally got married at City Hall after many long distance years together. Their wedding was lovely, but the original plan was to have a friend join in on the festivities. Unfortunately, the friend who was supposed to join (and serve as witness) could not attend due to travel entanglements. Never fear, your photographer is here! I stepped in and did double duty both clicking away and signing my name on the dotted line. Seriously, this was one of my most fun moments as a wedding photographer.
You can’t have a City Hall wedding and not take photos in the little wedding garden, so we did just that after the chapel ceremony. Since I was officially part of the bridal party, I decided we had to do something special to celebrate. And so we headed down to the Brooklyn Bridge for a few photos. While normally crammed to the gills with the people, we lucked out and got some great photos on the bridge. Enjoy!
