Central Park is a practical and beautiful destination spot for couples staying stateside, and it couldn’t have been a more perfect ceremony location for Laura and Ryan’s intimate Brooklyn wedding. The chic couple were joined by their closest loved ones for a garden ceremony, followed by a double-decker bus ride to the Wythe Hotel for a cozy reception among friends. Before the newlyweds headed back to the hotel for their first dance and a slice of cake, Shaun Menary Photography took them to the Brooklyn Bridge for a romantic photo shoot in the golden sunset.
Laura and Ryan
Wythe Hotel, Brooklyn, New York
We both wanted the entire experience to feel simple and timeless. The wedding was at the Conservatory Garden in Central Park, and the reception was at the Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn. Both venues are incredibly beautiful, so we needed very little decor. We did have beautiful flowers done by an amazing floral designer, Gro Designs, who happens to be Ryan‘s cousin.
We rented a double decker bus to transport the entire group from Central Park to Brooklyn. We travelled through the city, music blaring, wind in our hair. It was such a fun and memorable moment to share with our friends and family.
