The best part about a Battery Gardens Wedding—pedestrians can stop and watch you declare your love!
Dane’s brother showed so much love during his speech.
Dane & Carolyn’s Battery Gardens wedding took place on a warm October afternoon in NYC.
Dane grew up in South Africa and recently came over to the United States, where he met Carolyn, a native New Yorker. Dane’s closest friends and family flew all the way from South Africa. Many of them had never been to the US before!
Dane and Carolyn wanted to take pictures in DUMBO, Brooklyn, in addition to Battery Park. After getting ready at their apartment (which had an amazing view of the Brooklyn Bridge from the roof,) we took the short trip to the bridge. We then headed to the wedding ceremony and reception at the Battery Garden’s Restaurant in the financial district.
