When I spoke with Kristie & Maclaine for the first time, they told me they envisioned an intimate wedding with a classic old New York feel. They wanted to have a meaningful ceremony officiated by very good friends, enjoy a great meal with their guests, and after dinner spend time chatting with everyone while jazz musicians played. Dancing could happen, but conversing with cocktails in hand would also be encouraged. At least that’s how I remember it. And if my memory serves correctly, then they pulled it off quite well!
We carved out some time to make our way to Central Park – specifically A Tree House for Dreaming, which was in full bloom. We even popped back out to the street at dusk to get a little more of that city feel. These two really did it right. They focused on what was important to them, and let the day truly sink in moment by moment.
