Sheila and Dejah held a beautiful Bryant Park Grill wedding in early fall. Their wedding was filled with authentic, intimate moments, and their guests were so full of life. As NYC wedding photographers, we adore this venue. The staff is so friendly, the food is delicious, and the location is perfect.
Sheila and Dejah started their day at the Bryant Park Hotel, where they both got ready for their wedding. The hotel staff was so friendly and accommodating, and they made sure that everything went smoothly. The brides had their hair and makeup done, with loved ones by their side. They were both so excited to finally be getting married.
After their hair and makeup was done, they separated to get dressed. It was perfect so we could plan out a first look in Bryant Park. Just steps away from the venue, they each separately went to the venue to see each other for the first time. It was such a special moment for them both. While they knew some of what each other were wearing, the whole look was a total surprise.
When the first look was complete, we took some wedding portraits at the NYPL steps. The New York Public Library architecture is so beautiful and it made for the perfect backdrop for their portraits. They were so natural together and we could tell that they were just so happy to finally be married. We then headed over to Bryant Park Grill for their ceremony and reception.
If you host a Bryant Park Grill wedding, you’ll want to scout the area for your photo session. There are plenty of great locations to use for portraits. As NYC wedding photographers, we love weddings at this venue. The event space is conveniently located in Central Manhattan, making it easy to stay in one location for pictures.
When you plan out your New York wedding photography, you’ll want to take a walk around Bryant Park. It will show you the best options for your photo shoot. Dejah and Sheila spent their big day here and they loved it. They walked around the park and found some great spots to take photos including the NYPL, the carousel, and inside the venue.
Bryant Park Grill weddings have the unique option of a rooftop ceremony in an enclosure. This makes for a great experience for guests. Sheila and Dejah kept things non-traditional and hosted a surprise ceremony mid-cocktail hour. They had invited guests to come celebrate their marriage, but held a small ceremony to commemorate the special day. Sheila’s father hosted the small wedding ceremony.
One of the things we love as wedding photographers in New York City is the way this venue immerses you in the city. Even with enclosures, you are still right in the heart of Manhattan. The dinner portion with friends and family felt so immersive into the big apple. For the guests that traveled from out of town for this wedding at the Bryant Park Grill, it felt so immersive.
Something that kept their wedding photos so authentic was meeting the couple ahead of time. We offer all wedding photography packages in NYC a complimentary engagement session. This gives you the chance to get to know us and get comfortable. We want our couples to feel so confident, as this results in the best possible wedding day images.
Instead of Central Park or Brooklyn Bridge engagement photography, Sheila and Dejah chose to have a Harlem engagement photo shoot. It was such a unique experience as we don’t get many requests for this neighborhood. This super personal engagement session gave the couple a chance to share their backstory with us in an intimate way.
When it comes to dinner and dancing, a Bryant Park Grill wedding can’t be beat. This couple tore up the dance floor. It made for perfect candid wedding photos with family and friends. They were surrounded by love and laughter and had a blast. We love the reception space at this NYC wedding venue because it’s perfectly photogenic.
The team made this event come together so wonderfully. Ann Marie at Simply Styled Events ensured everything went off seamlessly. The event staff at Bryant Park Grill gave Sheila and Dejah an unforgettable experience. Verde Flowers created beautiful floral arrangements for the event. Everything fell into place so the couple could have an amazing time.
