This young couple decided to tie the knot in a small, intimate ceremony – so small, in fact, that I served as both photographer and official witness. Getting married at the New York City Marriage Bureau, we captured their sweet, brief moment in time.
The bride and groom make last minute clothing adjustments as they wait their turn in the NYC marriage bureau lobby.
Fingers laced together, the young couple walks together through the marriage bureau halls to their ceremony.
Bride and groom share a last quiet moment before their names are called city hall. Another young couple beside them kisses as they also wait their turn.
The bride walks into the ceremony chambers, her lace veil swept back delicately over her shoulders.
The groom lowers a pen to sign the newlywed couple’s marriage license.
The bride beams at her new husband, clasping his hands, as their officiant performs the marriage ceremony.
The vibrant whites and blues of the young couple’s wedding colors contrasts against the weathered exterior of New York’s city hall.
Now a married couple, the pair hail a taxi before rushing off into the busy New York streets.
