Cozy Winter New York City Elopement • Lora Rodgers Photography

Winter in New York City is quite possibly the most romantic time of the year, and here, "winter" can last all the way through March! So when Cecilia and Jason decided to elope in NYC on St. Patrick's day, they probably weren't expecting snow, but it certainly made for the most cozy and intimate wedding day! Elopements might just be my new favorite type of wedding... why?! Just LOOK at these two! Giddy and glowing, we love how Lora Rodgers captured all the "real" moments of a quintessential NYC wedding: the cab ride, the courthouse, and portraits in Washington Square Park. Go ahead, get comfortable and ready to fall in love with this adorable couple.

Both boho and classic, this summer wedding from Joyelan Photography is intimate, authentic and a wonderful reminder that love is really all you need for a gorgeous wedding day!
