Central Park and Metropolitan Club NY Wedding

Weddings
Mark and Kate met in the most romantic of ways... online! Truth be told, it was Kate's first online date in London! Kate and Mark met at what would become their favorite wine bar on a Friday night. The next day they met again: they visited an art museum, a history museum, talked about cars, and toured London's Notting Hill in the rain... something Kate would not normally do as friends and family of Kate know all too well. Mark disclosed to Kate that day he was a "best friend" to someone "very important" in the fashion industry... Even in that early afternoon, to both, it seemed that they were a match made in heaven. Although Kate did not actually have an affinity for strolls in the rain, she learned to love how much Mark knew about history, art and classic cars, and even accompanied him on one or two random walks through London. Mark admitted that he didn't exactly know any fashion designers, but appreciated her love of style, and went shopping with her... once. Together they formed their own interests, including travel, cooking, and film and travelled throughout England and Europe. 
Last April, he "surprised her" (he had been acting quite strange the whole day) at her favorite restaurant in London by proposing. A bit embarrassed that waiters might see, but absolutely ecstatic, she immediately said, yes!  
 
Their wedding was out of a classic NYC storybook, with the ceremony in St. Ignatius Loyola Church on the Upper East Side (made even more famous when Jackie O was baptized there), portraits in Central Park's flowering formal garden and a reception in one of the most iconic and elegant Fifth Avenue locations. 
 
Congratulations and thank you for including me in your wedding plans! Have a look at several pages from their Leather Craftsmen wedding album.

Due to a parade, not all of the flowers could make it to the bridesmaids at the club, no matter, they made it to the church and we had fun posing without them!

We purchased a special permit to photograph at New York City's only formal conservatory gardens. We were allotted only 30 minutes, however, the ceremony ran late and we arrived five minutes after our scheduled time, we were able to capture all of the portraits in 15 minutes - phew!
