"The city seen for the first time, in its first wild promise of all the mystery and the beauty in the world." - F. Scott Fitzgerald
December of 2016, Aaron and I embarked on one of the most amazing fun trips we had taken that year. First, I had never been to New York City, and it has always been on my bucket list to go. A huge thank you goes out to one of our favorite clients and friends, Valentina and Danny, for wanting to re-create their first date for their engagement session, which happen to be in New York City.
There was absolutely nothing like New York. If you have seen Fantastic Beast, one of the opening scenes, Eddie Redmayne looks up at the buildings of New York for the first time and it actually took his breathe away. New York has away of making you feel like absolutely nothing maters. If you are in sweats, heels, running from block to block or just sitting on a bench in Central Park staring off into the trees, you still feel and smell freedom. Thank you New York City, for once in a lifetime memories! We will see you again...and hopefully soon!!
Our Favorite Place/Parts-
Annay's - "My favorite locations was hands down the MET and Central Park. Every corner I turned in the MET just made it more beautiful. There was one painting by Emanuel Leutze named Washington Crossing Delaware and as soon as I turned the corner and saw it, it gave me goosebumps. The painting itself was beautiful but it didn't really call out to my personality, really it was the size and the frame that took my breathe away. Then, afterwards, we walked over to Central Park and again my heart skipped a beat when I looked out to the water. I honestly can close my eyes at this second and see it, my official happy place.
Aaron's - Of course I have to agree with Annay, the MET was an awesome place. I have always loved the architecture Frank Lloyd Wright, which the MET has a replica of one of his living rooms he designed. That has been the closest I've been to seeing one of his designs in person, it was surreal. We also went to this Hungarian Pastry shop that had the most amazing cake I have ever tasted in my life...seriously I would go back any time just for that cake. But best of all, was able to see my wife's eyes light up as she saw New York City for the first time. That was without a doubt the best part.
