I love the overwhelming happiness of this adorable couple! Captured by Katie Jane Photography, Katie and Nick eloped last March on a beautiful and unseasonably warm day in New York City. Katie and Nick are originally from Australia and decided to elope prior to heading home to Melbourne for a party with all their friends and family. The couple’s day began by dressing at their lovely Greenpoint, Brooklyn apartment. Next, they walked around their tree-lined neighborhood streets, including a stop at the place where Nick proposed one evening on a walk home from dinner, for a few portraits before heading to City Hall. They met their good friend and witness, Abbi, who was ready with champagne in hand, at City Hall. Following a short wait, they were ushered into the chapel for a short, yet very sweet, ceremony. Afterwards, Katie and Nick practically skipped out of City Hall, so filled with joy!
A few words from the bride:
We had such an awesome and relaxing wedding day! We got ready at home in Greenpoint with champagne and vegemite toast for with a dear friend Georgia (who also helped me into my dress), took some photos with Katie Jane, and then headed to the Clerk’s Office in Manhattan. Our civil ceremony was witnessed by Abbi, a dear, longtime friend of ours, and then the rest of the day included a late lunch at ABC Kitchen, skyping family in Melbourne, and watching our favorite movie, The Royal Tenenbaums. We hopped a flight to Melbourne and celebrated a few days later with a rooftop barbecue for family and friends at our favorite bar in the city; The Order of Melbourne. We feel incredibly lucky to have had the low-key wedding day we wanted, whilst still celebrating with all our loved ones in our hometown.
