Christian & Dermot really had a true elopement. They had been planning this trip to New York City for quite a while (they live in Switzerland), and at the last minute decided they should get married while they were on vacation. And just like that their vacation became a honeymoon! Although I had not met them in person before today, I knew I was going to adore them. When they first contacted me, Dermot and I chatted on the phone for almost an hour, and I hung up feeling as though I had been talking to an old friend.
This morning we met at their hotel in Lower Manhattan, along with their friends Tom, Chang Sook, and Tom & Chang Sook’s sweet baby girl. We all set off for City Hall, everyone full of laughter and joy. After the wedding, we headed to the Brooklyn Bridge for photographs, then up to Central Park. We couldn’t have asked for a more lovely day – luckily it was not nearly as frigid as yesterday! I was so honored to photograph this beautiful elopement. Christian & Dermot – thank you both for everything! You guys are amazing! Congratulations!
