A Central Park Wedding (With A Double-Decker Bus Tour!)

by Bridget Clegg

When it came to planning their wedding, New Yorkers Jason and Stephen wanted a celebration that honored the city they love. A ceremony at the Central Park Pond officiated by Peter Boruchowitz followed by a modern reception at the Kitano Hotel (with a fabulous rooftop for cocktails included!) was the perfect fit. But with a guest list full of family and friends from out of town, they knew they'd have to do more than find a great spot for a ceremony and reception. They had to figure out transportation for all of their guests. The solution was to turn their transportation issue into a fun activity for everyone. So following their intimate outdoor ceremony, an NYC Double Decker Bus from Grayline Tours picked up all the guests and took them for a quick tour of the city. Bonus: It made for the perfect photo op! See all the photos of the day from JBM Wedding Photography below and here!
