Emily and Dirk tied the knot at Battery Gardens where the reception immediately followed the ceremony.
Dirk’s uncle was the minister at the beautiful ceremony. Friends and family enjoyed the cocktail hour on the terrace of Battery Gardens overlooking the Hudson River, the Statue of Liberty and downtown Manhattan.
Emily had not one, but two, amazing hair stylists, Sachiko Yanase and Stacey Pitt.
Emily chose lovely soft and pastel colors for her flowers and bridesmaids’ dresses.
Flower arrangements were made by Limelight Floral.

Dirk and Emily’s first meeting on their big day.
Friends and families congratulated the newlyweds.
Some couples have a hard time cutting the cake with a regular knife. Emily and Dirk cut their cake with a sword!!
The perfect blend of music was provided by Carol Moore from A Starry Night.
Big thank you to Eddie, the maitre d’ at Battery Gardens who is so good at organizing, coordinating and keeping everything move smoothly.
Congratulations and best wishes Emily and Dirk!!
