meeting the lovely & incredibly talented Océane in the city
walking along the garden above the the streets
dipping our bare toes in the water & then sitting with our faces to the sun
talking about dreams & how we want to live this life. feeling inspired by her words.
then hunting for ice cream with all our might.
images taken at: Why Not Coffee in West Village, The High Line in Chelsea, & Chelsea Market.
This is the story of Patricia & Michael & they day of their intimate SoHo bookstore wedding.
New York has been their adventure together. It is where they have built their home & life together.
He wore his lucky tee-shirt all morning as he traveled about the city by taxi & subway.
She shared brunch & put on her satin dress in their manhattan flat overlooking the city.
Like true New Yorkers, partaking in Famous Joe’s Pizza moments before they wed.
The cozy bookstore lit with candlelight. The tables were covered in terrariums & air plants.
Loved ones gathering under the towering walls filled with books to witness & celebrate this love.
& through tears, they spoke their promises to one another.

the land of a thousand lakes. the land of many bikes.
beautiful shores, tall trees, vine covered walls everywhere i look.
sitting right behind you on our bike for two,
pedaling along winding paths along the shoreline.
& then laying in the grass next to you as we gaze at sailboats passing by.
my anthem will always be:
i just want to spend every second with you, whether here or there.
zooming through that hidden network of tunnels,
feeling like part of a secret society.
music echoing off the walls,
a rush of air surrounding our bodies as we wait at the tracks.
we go from here to there under this great city
& all the movement makes our insides feel alive.
