Talk about channeling old-world vibes! We absolutely loved this Central Park Wedding editorial with Britt Jones Co. What could be more romantic than a Central Park Elopement? Dare I say, “not much!” We met at one of the most well-known places in central park. NYC natives call Bethesda Terrace and fountain the “heart of Central Park,” and it’s not hard to see why. It is a quaint area that offers views of the lake and city. The terrace was one of the very first structures in Central Park; its construction began in 1859 and was completed in 1863. This is why it is reminiscent of old-world Europe.
We met Britt early that morning to start on the editorial. Rain promising to fall that Wednesday, we were lucky to have the rain hold off until later that evening when our day had finished. From the Iconic staircase, the fountain, and bow bridge, romance vibes were off the charts. Britt combined an ardent soft pink color palette with the architecture of Bethesda Terrace to bring a whimsical and romantic vibe to the shoot.
Considering Central Park’s stunning stone architecture, it was inevitable that we bring a color palette that popped. We combined hues of orange, berry tones, and splashes of yellow in the floral and had a soft pink Marchesa gown to further accent the color palette. The gown was accessorized by a dainty floral headband which completed the whole look. The focal point of the day was a garden-style ceremony set up in front of the beautifully designed walls underneath the iconic central park bridge. It was the perfect combination of fine-art femininity and European stone architecture.
Isaiah and Abiodun make the most gorgeous pair. He donned a tan suit from The Black Tux, while she wore a soft pink Marchesa gown with a lot of gorgeous texture. We started our time together under the Terrace with a gorgeous mural and a lot of incredible florals by One Flower By L. Then we walked out to the staircase, the lake, and fountain for more movement shots. Because of the weather, we were not able to rent a boat, but we ended at the beautiful Bow Bridge, with a quaint view of the lake and skyline.
I do know after visiting New York City several times, if ever I lived in NYC I would most definitely frequent Central Park. And would recommend the beauty of Bethesda Terrace to anyone looking for a gorgeous place in the city. Here are a few of our very favorite images from our time with Isaiah and Abiodun. Enjoy.
