Central Park Wedding: Steven & David
Despite the last minute change, their wedding day was perfect. A crisp autumn day with perfect blue skies and beautifully colored foliage made a gorgeous backdrop for their Central Park wedding ceremony. About 15 guests gathered with them, about half from out of state. “That was really lovely, to see them all there with us,” Steven said.
After the ceremony the grooms and their guests headed to a private dining room at Atlantic Grill. Sitting around one long table, they all talked and laughed for hours. “It was almost like a Thanksgiving Dinner,” Steven said. “I wanted something laid back and casual, I wanted it to feel like home.” They chose Atlantic Grill because they’d been there before and loved the seafood, and the private room was just the right size for their party.
