New York City Elopement


The term “elopement” has come to mean small wedding in the past several years. But Kristy + Jacob kept it real. With no guests and me as their witness, they secretly flew from their home in Western Australia to wed in NYC. The whole thing was done in 10 minutes in courthouse fashion and we spent the rest of day exploring with zero plans. 

They wanted as close to documentary style as you can get, so that’s what we did. And it led to the best coincidences. We randomly stumbled into a taco restaurant owned by a fellow Australian who offered us free drinks and impromptu shots with the staff. With quirk comes greatness. 

I hope you enjoy looking through one of my favorite weddings to date. NYC, I’ll see ya soon.
