Estelle and Stuart are from London but got engaged in upstate NY last year and returned to NYC to "do the deed" (their words not mine ?)One of the best things about eloping is that instead of paying for mediocre chicken francaise for Great Aunt Bertha you can splurge on Christian Dior stilettos and a sheepskin Yves Saint Laurent clutch as our girl Estelle did.

They also splurged on a skybox room at one of my favorite hotels in NYC the Ludlow. I met them in their room for the final touches and for some detail shots. Estelle and Stuart also requested "snacks" on their photoshoot so we stopped off at Katz's Deli which is right on the corner. We sat diagonal from the When Harry Met Sally Table and chowed down a few hotdogs and pickles.
