Klaudia & Lukasz were married on a beautiful afternoon in January of this year. The couple chose the historic Ladies Pavilion in Central Park, New York City for their romantic ceremony. The pavilion which overlooks The Lake at Hernshead was built in 1871 by Jacob Wrey Mould. It originally stood at 59th street and served as a cover for trolly passengers but was then brought to where it stands during the early 20th century. It’s intricate Victorian design and pastel color make it such a stunning location, even in winter when the surrounding nature is dormant. The Ladies Pavilion, which I had not had the pleasure of visiting before, is nestled in the park. When I first turned the corner and saw it I was so excited to be shooting there for the first time, it’s so majestic.
When Klaudia arrived she dazzled in her silver dress, delicate hair pin and beautiful blue earrings. Lukasz was dashing in his suit and boutonniere. The smoky blue florals perfectly accented the Pavilion’s unique pastel color and lovely iron working. As we all got into place, ducks quietly swam by in pairs and the water on Hernshead lake was steady and beautiful- it all made for the perfect backdrop to their ceremony.
While the sun shone through the arches of The Ladies Pavilion casting the loveliest glow, the two said “I do” surrounded by an intimate group of family & friends. When they stepped down from under the pavilion they were met with clapping, smiles, embraces and even fun celebratory rice. When they stepped down from the Pavilion, they were husband & wife. It was the perfect day to be married.

Wishing Klaudia & Lukasz a lifetime of happiness & joy!
