New Leaf Restaurant Wedding Photographer| Elizabeth & John

Elizabeth and John’s wedding at New Leaf Restaurant in New York City felt like a dream. If you love NYC weddings that start with the city’s hustle and bustle and end in the middle of Fort Tryon Park, then this wedding is for you. 

Getting Ready at the W Hotel

We started getting ready photos at The W Hotel in New York City. Then the whole wedding party traveled in a huge party bus to Linden Terrace at Fort Tryon Park. We were able to get so many beautiful images at all the locations. 

The Ceremony at Fort Tryon Park

It’s no secret that outdoor ceremonies are my absolute favorite. So when I found out their wedding would be in the center of a cluster of giant trees, I was delighted. Their ceremony was in Fort Tryon Park at Linden Terrace, which has sweeping views of the Hudson River, the George Washington Bridge, and The Palisades.

The Reception at New Leaf Restaurant

I always recommend that my clients have the ceremony and reception as close together to save time and energy between events. Elizabeth and John nailed it by just having a five-minute walk to their reception at New York’s hidden gem, New Leaf Restaurant. The venue is a stunning fieldstone cottage built by John D Rockefeller in the 1930s and features a cobblestone exterior, granite archways, and slate roof. The tented patio is great rain or shine, and it’s a fantastic place to have a wedding. 

The History of New Leaf Restaurant

New Leaf began hosting weddings in 2000 and produces 30 weddings per year. If you’re planning a wedding with 50-200 guests, this venue is perfect for you, and you will have the whole place to yourself!
