Wedding Photography | NYC Civil Marriage Ceremony | Marta & Andrew

Did I ever mention how much I love civil marriage ceremonies? Don’t get me wrong, I totally appreciate all of the elaborate, detail-laden weddings that so perfectly exude the personalities of the couple in question… but deep down, I’m all about keeping it simple. All you need is love, people – didn’t the Beatles teach us anything? :P

Marta and Andrew embarked on their wedding planning adventure last summer, much like most engaged couples do. But after finding themselves completely overwhelmed and engulfed in the process, they pretty much scrapped everything and decided to do things their own way and get married by themselves. I love them for that! I was so honored to be the one person in attendance to witness their marriage vows. After their City Hall ceremony, we had a few hours to wander around Downtown Manhattan taking photos in places that held special meaning for them. One of the places we shot at was the Staten Island Ferry Terminal, since they first met on the ferry – and would you believe that a line about the weather won Marta over? (Apparently it was exceptionally stormy the day Andrew first talked to her). Love it! :D Then after the shoot, they rounded out their special day celebrating with friends and family at dinner. If that’s not a perfect day, then I don’t know what is.

And in case you couldn’t tell, I am very fond of these two. I had the best time hanging out with Marta and Andrew on their wedding day!

Wedding Photography | NYC Civil Marriage Ceremony | Sneak Peek: Marta & Andrew

I had the most amazing time hanging out with Marta and Andrew the day they made things official and became husband and wife. I witnessed (yes, I got to be their witness!) their marriage at the City Clerk’s office in Manhattan, and then we spent the afternoon wandering around lower Manhattan taking pictures.

So. Much. Fun!

I’ll be posting the full set of photos sometime next month, but it’d be cruel to leave you hanging so here are just a few for now :)

Wedding Photography | Secret Civil Marriage Ceremony | New York City Hall

I kicked off 2011 with a ‘top secret’ wedding between two people who shall remain nameless for now (most of their friends/family have not officially been told about it yet!). But despite their anonymity, I can vouch for their awesomeness. Anyone who suggests karaoke immediately after getting married is my kind of people :)

Also, City Hall weddings are fun in their own right. You’ve got the hustle and bustle of the big hall filled with all these wedding parties waiting to get called up to desks to sign various documents and then called in to enter the chapels. It somehow feels very New York.
