"So, I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you."

- Paulo Coehlo

Benedetta & Eugenio contacted us to capture their New York City elopement. They are both from Italy and met while they were living in the US. They were moving out of the US, but before they left they wanted to elope in their favorite city. They live in Philadelphia, PA, so something special to them was that their vendors; flowers and photography were also from PA. They had an intimate ceremony in the middle of a crowded Central Park on a hot May day with just the two of them, the officiant, and ourselves. Krista was their witness :)  At the end of ceremony a huge crowd clapped and ran over to hug them while getting a group photo! It really made the two of them feel so special. It was only them, their families were in Italy so NY embraced them that day and became their family. They face-timed with their family in Italy right after and surprised them by holding up their hands to the phone, it was so sweet! We then spent the next few hours walking around Central Park and NY documenting their love.  Another favorite moment was when they went up to a street performer blowing bubbles and he splashed them with a HUGE bubble for good luck! They danced under a bridge to another street performer. It was like the city came together to celebrate with them.
