Pick a location in Central Park for your elopement
Where in Central Park did this Couple have their Elopement?
Gapstow Bridge, Central Park Rainy Elopement | Wedding Photos
It rained on their wedding day – we still went forward with the Central Park Elopement Photos by Gapstow Bridge! As a tradition, the couple would travel with their red umbrella and take photos with it everywhere they go, so it seemed right to take photos of them with it 🙂 The guest list was very small and made the elopement extremely intimate – they invited only their three kids, three close friends and the officiant’s (best friend’s) daughter, and a guitarist. Luckily, the rain lightened up and never was dramatically pouring throughout their photo sessions between Gapstow Bridge ceremony and portraits around Central Park! Woot woot 😉
You will also notice the bride’s bohemian wedding gown that she bought from Macy’s ! Isn’t it perfect for her?!

Eventually, we made out way from Gapstow Bridge to venture towards Bethesda Terrace with a pit stop to one of my favorite views on a rock in Central Park.
New York Wedding Photographer Review
“Love Miranda!!! Our Most Amazing Wedding Day that was 27 years in the making was captured perfectly by Miranda! She knows just how to get the perfect shots, we all had a lot of fun and she was not just a photographer but an amazing addition to the feel of our very interactive wedding, easily incorporating a little rain shower. We love u Miranda, you are a gem among wedding vendors. When interviewing wedding photographers personality is one of the most important things & u have it covered along with extremely amazing skills! Loved Every Minute of our Central Park Wedding”
