Central Park Bethesda Fountain elopement
When Fernanda inquired with me for her Central Park Bethesda Fountain elopement, she was planning everything last minute. Like most of my elopement inquiries. Fernanda’s family from Mexico was able to be here for them as well as Chris’s family. Their ceremony was so intimate even though in the most popular part of Central Park, the Bethesda Fountain, and Terrace.
We planned their first look on the Gapstow bridge with view over the Manhattan Skyline. I made sure wherever we were going, we would be able to catch the skyline. We then went around the park for more portraits just the two of them before meeting their family back at the Bethesda Fountain and Terrace for their ceremony.
Their story reminds me of mine. Being away from your fiance, or boyfriend, or even husband while building a relationship miles away apart, isn’t the easiest. These babes were able to keep their relationship going even though in different countries. They’ve been traveling to different countries together anytime they could. And look at them now. Finally reunited. It’s never easy but the outcome is worth everything!
Where to Elope in Central Park
When it comes to having your elopement in Central Park the options are endless. Planning an elopement in Central Park is very easy but it can be hard choosing the locations you want to go to. I love how Central Park has many options for wedding ceremonies and portraits. Central Park is the perfect location if you’re looking for a romantic vibe for your elopement. The art and architecture within Central Park give it its character. It’s also a great location if you want to incorporate some of the skylines from Manhattan. Starting from the southern part of Central Park to the northern locations, here are my recommendations.
- Cop Cot
- The Pond and The Gapstow Bridge
- The rock by the Wollman Rink
- A Tree House for Dreaming
- The Bethesda Terrace and Fountain
- The Bow Bridge
- Wagner Cove
- The Lake View
- Ladies Pavillon
- Shakespeare Garden
