Alyson and Michael’s Elegant Black Tie Wedding at St. Patrick’s Cathedral

Alyson and Michael’s wedding was a stunning celebration of love that began in the heart of New York City, the same place where these two met and their relationship blossomed! The celebration began at the elegant Lotte Palace, where they prepared for their big day with breathtaking views of St. Patrick’s Cathedral right out the suite’s window. The anticipation built as Alyson and her bridal party, dressed in their classic, nod to autumn, gowns, and Michael with his groomsmen, impeccably suited, made their separate walks to the iconic cathedral. Outside the church, Alyson shared a heartwarming first look with her father, a moment filled with emotion and tenderness that set the tone for the day.

The ceremony at St. Patrick’s Cathedral was the epitome of a classic New York wedding! The grand architecture and historic ambiance of the cathedral provided a majestic setting as Alyson and Michael exchanged vows, surrounded by the love of their family and friends. After the ceremony, the couple took a romantic stroll through Central Park. It was such a joy to create space for these two to share some time together, while simultaneously capturing beautiful portraits that reflected the happiness and excitement of their union. The lush greenery and serene landscapes of the park offered a perfect contrast to the urban backdrop of the city, creating unforgettable memories and timeless bride and groom photos from their day.

As the newlyweds made their way back to the limo, the celebration moved to Trump National in Bedminster, NJ, where we finished a few portraits as the sun began to set and paint the sky in beautiful warm tones. The reception was a romantic affair, adorned with warm candlelight and floral centerpieces that enhanced the intimate atmosphere. The speeches were heartfelt, with Alyson’s father delivering words that brought tears of joy to both Alyson and Michael’s eyes. The love and happiness shared by the couple radiated throughout the night as they danced the night away! Alyson and Michael’s wedding was a beautiful testament to their love story, a day filled with cherished moments that will be remembered forever.
