Serene, Springtime Inspired Central Park Wedding

Spring was the biggest inspiration for Chris and Karyn’s Central Park elopement. “We were initially planning on getting married on the Spring Solstice,” she told us, “but it is very cold in March in NYC so we decided against it.” Instead, they focused on creating a serene atmosphere, by choosing to have their ceremony in front of a waterfall in North Woods, Central Park, and kept the details fun and boho.

“We didn’t have a wedding party,” Karyn continued, “and we walked down the aisle together, which I guess made our day pretty unique. We also really wanted to highlight two families becoming one, including honouring our ancestors during the ceremony.”

Secluded Central Park Elopement

When planning their wedding day, Zach and Robyn knew that they wanted to create an experience with reflected their relationship. They actively elected conventional elements very judiciously, “We chose things not just for ceremony, or convention, but because it was what we wanted or felt reflected our relationship,” Robyn explained.

So, not only did we get to enjoy the ceremony as planned, the park was empty. The experience was really special and joyful.”

With a budget of $3,500, they knew they wanted to invest in quality photos and artful photographers in order to have a special memento of the experience. They cut costs dramatically by eschewing a traditional reception with lots of guests to entertain. Robyn made her own flower crown, bouquet and Zach’s boutonniere, and designed sleeves for her Ghost dress to make it more in-keeping with her style and something she felt comfortable in.
