New York City Elopement at Ladies Pavilion :: Tiffany & Jocelyn

1-eager-hearts-snippet-and-ink

The Ladies Pavilion in New York’s Central Park is one of our favorite venues for an intimate wedding ceremony, so it’s no wonder Tiffany and Jocelyn chose it for their charming October elopement. Following the ceremony, the newlyweds spent the day visiting some of their favorite spots in the city – including a stop at Shake Shack! No question that this wedding is proof that you don’t need to have a big blow out party to have a perfectly magical day…

The Ceremony

“We planned for a very intimate, simple elopement inspired by Moonrise Kingdom (Wes Anderson’s film). When I first met Tiffany, I mailed her the movie Moonrise Kingdom and asked her to watch it. I was her Sam and she was my Suzy, my raven. Our love story was a reflection of theirs and we ran away together and eloped.”

our ceremony in three words. Non-traditional, intimate, playful.

Why did you choose this location for your ceremony? Ladies Pavilion was like the hidden garden beneath the busy city roads, and it was perfectly intimate for us.

Who officiated your ceremony? Judy Guild was our officiant – we spotted her on the web and in many photos of other New York City weddings and we knew she was perfect. She had a very gentle way about her and we thought she was incredibly sweet.

What were your vows like? We both wrote our own vows in Moleskine booklets that I decorated with the word “Vows” in gold. Our vows were very personal to one another, filled with promises for the future and even some inside jokes to make each other smile.

What were your ceremony readings? We chose a paragraph from the The Amber Spyglass by Phillip Pullman. We loved the idea of being reincarnated into our next lives where we would find each other again.

What was your ceremony music? We had two violinists playing our favorite songs which was one of my favorite parts of our wedding. These songs were a staple of our budding relationship and it felt very nostalgic to hear them as we promised our lives to one another.

Did you include any traditions in your ceremony? Our wedding wasn’t very traditional, but of course we brought a bottle of champagne to share with our guests and toasted to a happy marriage.

The Reception

“We felt as though being in one place would only represent a part of us. We love to explore and travel and we wanted to capture a bit more of the city on our wedding day, so instead of a traditional reception with lots of people, the two of us took a ride on Jane’s Carousel in Dumbo and walked to the Brooklyn Bridge. We also stopped by Shake Shack and got french fries!”

What was your favorite thing about your wedding? Our favorite thing about our wedding is that it was so wonderfully small and intimate, that our day was filled with endless possibilities and we chose to do things that made us happy and this made the day all the more memorable. It was simply a celebration of us.
