Kelly and Jason were married on a Sunday at the Holy Trinity Roman Catholic church near Central Park. It was hot, for May, but if you ask me, any day is a good day to get married. The church was very lovely, and from a photographic standpoint, very dark inside. Because I wasn’t Kelly and Jason’s official photographer, I certainly didn’t want to be an “Uncle Bob” (that friend/relative with all the photo gear that always gets in the way), so I sat in the back of the church like a good little girl and tried to think of creative things to do in very low light with no flash and no tripod. Whee!
After a lovely ceremony – the first Catholic wedding mass I’ve attended – all of us guests were treated to a personalized tour of New York City on one of those sweet double-decker buses. In addition to taking us all around the city, we visited places that were special to Kelly and Jason… his first apartment, her first apartment, where they now live, their favorite frozen yogurt place, etc. But our journey was fraught with danger and peril: This personalized route took us up and down streets not designed for a high-clearance bus and on several occasions we found ourselves ducking in our seats to avoid tree branches. I even got smacked across the face while trying to line up a shot!
While we made our way by bus, Kelly and Jason took a real, old-skool New York taxicab.
The reception was held at the prestigious Yale Club. After a cocktail hour in the library, we enjoyed dinner and dancing on the top floor, with great views of Grand Central and the New York skyline. What a perfect introduction to a fabulous city!
