Who? : Private couple, private wedding at the Gramercy Park Hotel
What? : Rooftop wedding and candlelit rooftop reception
Where? : Gramercy Park Hotel in Manhattan, New York
When? : August 2017
Every once in awhile a completely private wedding comes along. For whatever reason, be it political or personal, the couple does not want their names or faces on the internet. I can understand and respect that! This sweetly private couple had great reasons for wanting their images offline, and agreed to allow me to share images where their names and faces weren’t immediately identifiable. I am so glad they allowed me to share these images from their day, as the Gramercy Park Hotel has never looked lovelier!
The Gramercy Park Hotel has long been a favorite wedding venue of mine. I love the deep jewel tones of the hotel rooms, and the deliciously understated elegance of the decor. I love the proximity to the privacy of Gramercy Park (but don’t get excited, you’re not allowed to take wedding day pictures in Gramercy Park** – that’s a NYC rule, not a hotel rule!), and how close the venue is to other picturesque locations for wedding day portraits.
I wish I could publicly thank the amazing clients that I worked with on this wedding at the Gramercy Park Hotel but….privacy. You two, if you’re reading this, know that documenting your day was a tremendous honor. I am overjoyed that you’re so thrilled with the images, and I look forward to creating your album soon!
Here are a few detail images from the day:
**About the park permit…no, you cannot shoot wedding day pictures in Gramercy Park. Lest you think you can just “wing it”, you’ll get thrown out, and I’ll get banned. I love my clients, but I’m not getting banned from anywhere! If you think “I can convince them!” just know that they’ve turned down Woody Allen, Robert DeNiro, and Google!
