Lindsey & Jim; October 27: St. Ignatius & The Central Park Boathouse, NYC
Lindsey and Jim had to wonder if early showers would wash away their wedding day, but were happy to see the sun come out in force later in the afternoon.
The couple got ready at the Marriott on 92nd and First Avenue before taking a limo and shuttle bus to St. Ignatius Loyola on 84th & Park. The ceremony was performed by the groom's hometown priest, Father Joe from Long Island, who added plenty of personal anecdotes and humor.
After the ceremony, the couple had ample time before cocktail hour so they took the opportunity to get photos by Photography By Verdi and video from Tim Alan Studios on NYC streets, in Central Park and near the Central Park Boathouse, where the reception would be held.
The reception at the Boathouse started out with cocktail hour overlooking the lake and the park before the guests moved inside for highlights that included a cigar roller, entertainment by Elite Music, and a candy bar with an assortment of delectable treats.
In addition to a few humorous and poignant toasts and lots of dancing, one of the main highlights had to be Father Joe joining the band to sing two songs, one of which is used along with the video recap below!
