Judith and Nick’s Bright Smiles, Big City Engagement and Wedding Photography, New York

Is it just us or will Central Park always be synonymous with romance? Judith and Nick showed us once again why a "walk in the park" can be the perfect place for an engagement session. 

The blooming spring trees added a nice pop of color and a whimsical feeling. The gorgeous feature of the park provided unparalleled backdrops. Arched pathways, bridges, buildings. You name it, Central Park has a perfect touch of man-made beauty amidst natural splendor. 

Because everything surrounding your wedding deserves a celebration-- even completing your engagement session -- Judith and Nick stopped into Bob's Your Uncle for a couple of after-session martinis! 

For their wedding, the couple chose W Loft in New York. The venue, like the wedding, was free-spirited and easy going. The event space is a newly renovated rooftop venue in Williamsburg. It features clean lines with light and airy details. Plus, the couple and their guests got to enjoy those breathtaking city views. 

Judith wore a beautiful white gown with a simple silhouette and faux-wrap bodice. Her colorful bouquet popped with the overcast weather, as did her bridesmaids' jewel-toned dresses. 

Nick donned a blue suit. He had his groomsmen each wear their own blue suits, an easy option that meant they didn't have to fuss with rentals. 

Their ceremony had an airy, modern, and natural feel. White orb lights hung from the ceiling, giving the room a glowing ambient light.  Ceremony chairs were natural wooden cross-backed chairs. We love how these chairs give the space a "designed" feel just with the seating. Instead of a ceremony arch, the couple chose two large green plants to accentuate the focal point of the room.

The couple headed to the water for some portraits with the Manhatten skyline in the background. Instead of detracting from the day, the fog accentuated their photos by giving the bridge and the skyline a unique, hazy appearance. Plus, we will forever love how a cloudy day can make for the most flattering lighting in outdoor photos.
