What a beautiful and intimate wedding! Melanie and Sean had their special day at the Sanctuary Hotel in Manhattan. Although they currently live in Orlando, a lot of their family lives locally to New York so they decided to hold their wedding here. Not to mention they lived here for many years, so NYC is nothing new to them!
We began the day on the rooftop, where they had their first look. It was adorable how nervous Sean was, gripping his vow book, waiting patiently for his bride to turn the corner. Once he saw her, it was all smiles and laughter as they kissed and family surrounded them with hugs.
Afterwards, we headed out into the cold and over to Times Square for some couples photos! Melanie was running the show and making sure all the bases were covered, including a photo with Olaf and grabbing a New York hot dog! As we walked to the top of the TKTS stairs, the crowd began cheering for Melanie and Sean. After finishing up in Times Square, we came back to the rooftop for a few more couples photos (including a super sweet dance) and detail shots.
Melanie’s bouquet was so gorgeous, and reflected her love of reading with a few flowers made from Harry Potter pages! As a lover of Beauty and the Beast she of course had a Belle’s Library book as well, filled with poetry. In fact, she loves it so much that Sean had actually proposed to her at Disney World! He brought out a rose in a big glass container with the ring and a harpist played Tale As Old As Time. Then they watched the fireworks on a private balcony... so romantic! There were even more little details throughout the day that kept up with the theme, such as the Happily Ever After Cake topper and the cake utensils!
Where better to get married for a book lover than a library? The ceremony was held in Sanctuary Hotel’s beautiful library space, followed by dinner. We’re so excited for Melanie and Sean, wishing them a happy life filled with laughter!
