Lindsay + Nick: A Fun NYC Park Wedding by Levi Stolove
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings

Lindsay and Nick’s early spring nuptials sum up everything we love about the surprises of personalized weddings. At first glance, the pretty pastel ceremony seems to be set in a secluded forest somewhere, but it’s actually in Upper West Side New York City! The duo married amongst family, friends, and tall trees at Fort Tryon Park, then followed up with a lively reception on the outdoor patio at the park’s New Leaf restaurant.  They splurged on excellent photography and their dream venue (smart choices in our book) and kept the rest of the wedding costs at a minimum by enlisting guests to help with everything from the desserts to the reception music. Special thanks to Levi Stolove for sharing these wonderfully airy photos with us!

Lindsay and Nick first bonded over early morning lesson planning at the school where they both worked—he taught math and she taught English. After years of dating, they married in the park right across the street from that school! “The ceremony went by very quickly, but felt sweet and personal,” remembers the bride. “We were lucky that the Linden trees [in the park] bloomed a bit early.”

Friends and family had a hand in creating almost every aspect of the couple’s vintage inspired reception. “We were nervous at first to ask for help,” says the bride. “I didn’t want anyone to feel put out by our wedding, but we found that people had the opposite reaction. Everyone was really excited to be part of the day in his or her own way.”

“Our only regret is that the night ended to soon,” Lindsay says (park rules stipulate that events must be over by 11 PM). Thanks again to Levi Stolove for sharing these beautiful images with us!
