New York City Elopement in Central Park : Lexi + Mike

Lexi and Mike planned a super secret in Central Park just as fall was starting to make an appearance.

They decided to say I do surrounded by the beauty of Mother Nature in a city that they love. And it didn’t hurt that Lexi’s best friend is a photographer! Helena was there to capture their vows and some portraits in the park as the newlyweds were nothing but smiles.

Here are a few words from Helena about their day!

” Lexi and Mike had a secret elopement in New York City’s Central Park when the autumn leaves were turning and the golden light fading. Lexi, best friend of the photographer, arrived in white with her vows written in her journal and a leather jacket covered in feminist/social justice pins. Mike handpicked her floral bouquet from a bodega on the corner of Manhattan’s busy crossings. Both eternal optimists and mega-nerds, they played video games on St. Marks Avenue after the ceremony and ate ramen with a few of their closest friends. ”
