Gramercy Park Hotel: New York, NY: Holly & Brendan's Wedding

It’s not every couple that would move up their wedding date by a full year in order to accommodate their older family members. But Holly and Brendan are not just any couple. They are two people who would do anything for the people they love; two people whose clear and evident love for each other could soften even the hardest of hearts. If there was one common thread in all the toasts offered up to the happy couple during their reception, it was that in both Holly and Brendan individually (and together) you could find no better ally in life. That’s why they were able to plan a wedding in a few short weeks and why their friends and family went out of their way to make sure to be there to celebrate with them as they officially became husband and wife. 

From the moment their day began, the people closest to them were by their side. In the morning, they were there helping each of them get ready. With their family standing across the street to cheer them on, there was not one dry eye when Brendan saw Holly for the first time. But it did seem that somehow, in the middle of Manhattan, the city had gone quiet for a minute while this incredibly happy couple marveled at the fact that this day was suddenly here.

And it only got better from there.  From their emotional ceremony officiated by a special friend to the heartfelt, hilarious toasts and, finally, the very romantic first dance - Holly and Brendan’s day was all about everything that means the most to them - their love for each other and their dedication to their family and friends.
