The morning of the wedding, I woke up before sunrise, as I usually do the day of a wedding. I started finishing on the last minute details for the wedding and hardly noticed when the sun came out. So when I looked out the window for the first time, I discovered a sunny, cloudless morning. The day could not have been better for a beautiful small wedding.
We met at Trevor and Kelsey's apartment in Park Slope and gathered on the rooftop for amazing views over the East river to Manhattan. Then the whole group of about 25 people loaded on to a retired New York City school bus which took us to Prospect Park. We walked into the park a little ways to a small spot in front of the lake. This is where Trevor and Kelsey chose to exchange their vows and it was one of the most personal, emotional weddings I have been to. We attached a photo of Kelsey's dad, who had passed away, to her bouquet so he could be with her as she walked down the aisle. I don't think anyone had dry eyes. (Except Greyson, who was napping.)
After the "I Do's," we walked through the park for photos across from the beautiful boat house. Then the bus picked us back up and took us to an intimate dinner/reception at a tiny Eastern European restaurant. The evening was spent eating amazing food and celebrating with the newlyweds, all to the backdrop of live music by their friends Luke and Amber of Boy and Bean. There were toasts, dancing, and delicious pies in the place of cake. As we left at the end of the night, a refreshing sprinkle of rain started. It was as if the sky had held out all day, just for them.
