Cop Cot Central Park Elopement

How could I not love two lesbians from Australia who run their own amazing tea company called, of all things, The Rabbit Hole? As a bunny owner, I was excited and even more so when I got to try the tea. Delicious.

Amara and Corinne flew in to New York City with some of their nearest and dearest for a small ceremony in Central Park followed by a reception for all those who made the trip with them. But before heading out to get married, Corinne and Amara wanted some iconic New York shots in Times Square. It’s also where the ladies put on their absolutely killer vintage outfits. Complete with seamed stockings. And peacock feathers. And a birdcage veil. One very happy Kelly.

After getting some lovely portraits on the Ruby Red Steps, we hit the motherlode: a firetruck. As a firefighter, Amara couldn’t turn down a chance to pose on the back of the truck, and the crew was more than happy to oblige for the ladies on their wedding day.

Central Park provided another kind of uniquely New York flavor. Corinne and Amara chose to exchange their vows underneath the Cop Cot with their friends and family looking on and Rev. Annie Lawrence officiating. The Cop Cot is an ideal location, not just because it’s beautiful and quiet, but also because it is big enough to accommodate a small wedding party and even has seats for elderly guests. The ceremony highlight hands-down was Corinne’s tearfulness as well as her laughter as she tried to pull it together.

Eloping in Central Park? The Wagner Cove is another option that provides shelter and is on the quiet side.
