The U.S. Supreme Court declared The Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional today! So excited for all those who have waited a long time for marriage equality.

I met Scott and Daniele just one week before their wedding at the Ladies’ Pavilion in Central Park, funnily enough, standing outside NY Magazine’s Weddings Event. They wandered by and asked what the event was inside. As it turned out they were getting married very soon. So a short conversation on the sidewalk and a somewhat longer one by phone led to me photographing their wedding in a very lovely spot in the park. If they really love their photos maybe I’ll be lucky enough to get an invite to the much bigger wedding they are planning in Brazil. In the meantime, I’m definitely going to take them up on their lunch invitation.
I had the pleasure of photographing Kristin and Sam’s wedding this past weekend on the first Saturday same-sex weddings were legal in New York at the Pop up Chapel at Merchant’s Gate in Central Park. Kristin and Sam are a very cute young couple who connected over a shared love of Harry Potter in college. Reverend Annie Lawrence, who married them, shares the same love of Harry Potter and brought her wizard outfit along on Saturday. I love the bright blue shoes with the guest’s rainbow suspenders in the background.
Twenty four very happy couples were married in Central Park’s at an all day event put together by a fantastic group of volunteers and sponsored by the Knot. Congratulations to all 24!
