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.

Adonis (the Officiant) actually introduced Arleny & Daniel. Because of this, they felt it only fitting that he was the one to make it official!

Arleny & Daniel are both engineers. Because of this, they decided to create many of their reception details.

Arleny & Daniel met while studying to be engineers in school (Daniel is a mechanical engineer and Arleny is a civil engineer). Fast forward a few years and they decided to host their beautiful wedding in New York City. A unique touch—their officiant was actually the person who introduced them to each other!

Because they live in downtown Brooklyn, we took advantage of the short drive and take wedding photographs in DUMBO. With NYC as our backdrop, we walked around town. We then went to The Vanderbilt at South beach for their ceremony and reception.
