The Ludlow Hotel Elopement Melissa & Michael | Manhattan, NYC

Let me take you on a journey through the lens, freezing moments in time, and turning them into cherished memories. It all began on a crisp winter day, with a hint of the season's first snow dancing in the air, a subtle touch that made New York City even more enchanting. Our couple jetted in all the way from the UK, ready for a magical NYC elopement.


The day kicked off with preparations at The Ludlow Hotel, one of our absolute favorites in the area. There's something about the cozy elegance of this place that sets the perfect tone for the start of a beautiful love story. After getting dolled up, we headed for a pre-party filled with cocktails at the renowned Dirty French New York restaurant within the hotel. Trust us; it's not just a restaurant; it's an experience.


Then came the stroll through the Bowery District. We pride ourselves on knowing every nook and cranny of this neighborhood, making sure our couples get the most photogenic spots for their special day. Recommendations flowed – where to book a room, which restaurant to choose for the celebratory dinner – all part of the service. Our dynamic duo opted for the all-in-one max package, a one-stop-shop for an epic NYC elopement.


Picture this: comprehensive photo and video coverage, instant Instagram reels, location scouting, officiant services, paperwork assistance, hair and makeup, transportation, live music, wedding coordination, planning expertise, a structured timeline, and witness provision if needed. Yep, we've got it all covered.


Now, fast forward to the heart of the matter – Central Park's Bethesda Terrace. The setting was dreamy, with an officiant and a handful of friends who flew in from the UK to witness and celebrate this intimate union. As the snowflakes gently fell around us, we captured the essence of their love against the iconic backdrop of Central Park.
