Niasha & Andrew contacted me last-minute, so excited about their decision to elope in Central Park! I absolutely love photographing Central Park Elopements and suggested Bethesda Terrace as the perfect elopement location!
Like so many other couples this year, Niasha & Andrew’s original wedding plans were disrupted by COVID. They had a big party planned in their hometown with all their friends and family, but had to postpone to next year. I’m so glad that didn’t stop them from taking this day to say their vows and commit themselves to each other as life partners.
Elopements are always more emotional and tender than big weddings, and they make my heart so happy. Without the pressure of hundreds of onlookers, you feel free to express your truest feelings to your partner during your vows, unafraid of the embarrassment or awkwardness that sometimes comes from totally losing it in front of everyone you know!
Niasha & Andrew were married by two of Niasha’s best friends, and the ceremony was full of so much love and meaning. Their vows were beautiful and poignant, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the room!
I love that they also brought along their pup Sampson as their best man, dressed to the nines in his doggy tux!
After they tied the knot, we walked around the beautiful area, to the Bow Bridge and Bethesda Fountain and Terrace for some happy newlywed wedding photos! I am such a fan of Niasha’s bridal jumpsuit by Rime Adoraky she rented from Tangerine Rentals!
Niasha and Andrew described it as the happiest day of their life, and I’m so grateful I got to be a part of it.
