Shayla and Cason came all the way from Texas to get married in New York City. With the help of A Central Park Wedding, they said their vows in the beautiful Dene Summerhouse.
Shayla shares, “I come from a very small West Texas town named Haskell, about 45 minutes north of Abilene. Abilene is where Cason grew up. These two towns are not very “city like” AT ALL! However, Cason and I have always loved every aspect of the big city. When it came time to plan our wedding, we started looking at venues in Austin (a mini Manhattan). We found the perfect place, but it definitely wasn’t the perfect price. While driving away, a little discouraged, I joked about how we are like Mr. Big and Carrie Bradshaw (Warning: I’m an SATC addict) wanting the big ceremony but something just does not feel right to have it and we should just go to New York and get married there. Since neither of us had ever traveled to NYC, I was shocked to hear Cason say “LET’S DO IT!”
I was so excited to even dream that I could possibly be getting married in The Big Apple!!! After getting back from our trip to Austin, I immediately started researching “NYC Weddings”…I stumbled across A Central Park Wedding, inquired, and our planner, Christa, got back with me super fast and it’s all history from there!
My wedding day was everything I dreamed of and SOOO much more! We stayed in NYC for nine days and absolutely fell in love with it, so much that we are planning on moving there within the next five years!”
After the ceremony, the bride and groom, along with their parents and officiant, shared a champagne toast.
After the toast, we strolled around the park to some favorite spots, including Bethesda Terrace, and ended at Grand Central Station.
Congratulations Shayla and Cason!
Special thanks to A Central Park Wedding.
