Briana & Arik | A Snowy New York City Elopement

When Briana and Arik, a fabulous couple from Florida, were planning their March elopement in New York City, I doubt they considered the possibility of a Nor'eastern blizzard named Stella totally wrecking their plans. If you're from the Northeast then you know that's pretty much exactly what happened. Briana and Arik planned to marry in an intimate, Central Park ceremony, and I planned to be there to photograph it. Instead they ended up working with their hotel to marry in a beautiful spot on the Dream Midtown property and I enlisted the help of my very talented friend and colleague, Kamila Harris, to be there to capture it all. I am so thankful to have a community of colleagues ready to help at a moment's notice. I am also incredibly thankful to Briana and Arik for their patience and flexibility. When all's said and done, the newlyweds headed back to the sunshine state with an epic story and beautiful memories to share with their family and friends. Here's a peek at their special day.
