We couldn’t wait to share this one with you all, Lauren and Kyle were giddy and laughing the entire day and it made our job so much fun! With everything in one location, the stunning Mandarin Oriental, their day went by smoothly. Lauren prepped with her ladies while Kyle got ready at their apartment. They met in Central Park (where Kyle proposed to Lauren) for their first look and his expression when he turned around was priceless! Their bridal party awaited eagerly just down the path (with their best friend and officiant Vincent ever so kindly holding everyone’s jackets) before joining in the fun for pictures. The ceremony was sweet, touching on the lives of both Lauren and Kyle individually and as a couple, ending with a ceremonial wine glass for them to share as newlyweds! At the cocktail hour immediately following, Kyle’s dad serenaded them on the piano while everyone listened and cheered. The ballroom was turned into a stunning night time beauty complete with table markers signifying each place in the world these two travel bugs have been. We had so much fun capturing the dancing, listening to the hilarious and touching speeches, and witnessing an overall amazing party (these people know how to have a good time!).
