A CENTRAL PARK WEDDING UNDER THE RAIN
I remember meeting Yassmeen and Jonathan at a Starbucks downtown and being struck by their energy and happiness. Those two were so madly in love and so excited to take their relationship further that it made me excited too. Their engagements session was no different: they were both so bubbly that I couldn’t even chose a favorite photo (and I ALWAYS have a favorite photo). So when their wedding day came and the rain was pouring down, I was not surprised to find them all smiles.
They decided to walk down the aisle together, holding hands and an umbrella, and I thought that was a lovely touch; Yasmeen and Jonathan were not into traditions, and wanted to walk in as a team. The portrait session after their ceremony was a treat too, as the rain gave a very lush feel to the park. We took pictures around the Ladies Pavilion and on Central Park West, which was quite empty due to the moody weather.
The day ended at the East Pole, a quaint little restaurant in the Upper East Side. The couple had their first dance during cocktail hour before sitting for an early dinner with their family and closest friends.
Congratulations to them!
