You'll remember Rory + Kaitlin from their City Hall ceremony a few weeks ago. For being such a young couple, they really do have a forever-kind-of-love...the kind you don't really see until a couple has been together for 40 years. Although, I guess the 10 years they have been together really helps! :)

Rory and Kaitlin chose to have a very New York City wedding day - which I couldn't be more excited to have been a part of!! We started the day at the Washington Square Hotel, caught a cab over to the Jefferson Market Library (thank you Frank for allowing us to grab a few photos!), and eventually landed at the Manhattan Penthouse for the rest of the evening.

February 23rd was finally in the 10 day forecast...and they called for 80% chance of rain. Our hearts sank while we frantically tried to come up with an alternative to beautiful outdoor portraits in Washington Square Park. While searching Google street view (my bff), I stumbled upon the Jefferson Market Library! With permission from the library director (thanks Frank!!), we quietly made our way through some of the picturesque spaces!  :)

And of course, the classic end-of-night-pose-with-the-photog shot! Rory + Kaitlin, I hope you are living it up in New Zealand!! xo!
