Happy Friday everyone!  I’m so excited to leave you with this very sweet New York elopement for the weekend.  Abbi & Ben’s wedding day consisted of a pre-ceremony shoot, saying “I do” at City Hall, a quick bite at a hot dog stand, and celebrating at the Maritime Hotel. Katie Jane Photography specializes in elopement photography and is here to share Abbi and Ben’s wedding day with us!

New York Elopement

Katie: I first met Abbi at another client’s City Hall elopement.  She was the witness for her two friends Katie & Nick in March 2012, and she mentioned that in a few months, she would be eloping herself.  After I delivered Katie & Nick’s photographs, I immediately got an email from Abbi asking me to photograph her own City Hall elopement.  I was absolutely thrilled!

I met Abbi & Ben in their neighborhood – the West Village – early in the afternoon to take some portraits before we headed to City Hall to meet all their friends. We could not have had a more gorgeous day. Although these two live in NYC, they are originally from Australia. They planned to elope in New York City first and then throw a party back home with all their friends and family in Australia in 2013. After pre-ceremony portraits in the West Village, we hopped a cab to City Hall where we met their four closest friends. We grabbed a number, and then began the process of waiting to be called into the chapel. City Hall was absolutely packed that afternoon, and we waited for over an hour. I love the photographs I was able to capture during our long wait – they truly captured the essence of what it’s like to elope at City Hall. After their brief but joyous ceremony, we were off to the Maritime Hotel to celebrate!
