Cassie and Justin had the longest, and most fun City Hall and Gramercy Hotel elopement.
Usually, City Hall elopements last a few hours at least. But Cassie and Justin wanted to make it big. They invited friends and family members from all over the world, from Hong Kong to Canada.
We all headed to City Hall for a short and sweet ceremony, followed by a walk around City Hall Park. We stopped at a pretzel stand and grabbed some snacks, before taking the subway towards the West Village for a short stop in Justin’s favorite donut shop. We continued out journey through Manhattan with a stroll in the Village, all the way to the Gramercy Hotel. That is where more friends and family met us for a dinner on the rooftop.
Not much was planned during the day and we improvised a lot. From the streets and itineraries we took, to the speeches at the end of dinner, everything was done instinctively which made the whole day even more genuine and heartfelt. I definitely had a blast following Cassie and Justin around all day, even though I got home exhausted. Who knew a City Hall elopement could be so grand. Congrats to the happy quirky couple!
