Wedding Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday

I think it's fun to see brides on the streets of New York City and through the years I've enjoyed posting these pictures on Wedding Wednesdays. It doesn't happen that often, but when it does I know I have my post for the  next Wednesday. When I started jury duty two weeks ago I started to see brides -- the bouquet was the giveaway -- near the building where I was serving.

  I found this happy couple...
 
 this happy couple...
 
...and this happy couple.
 
If you note the sign in the last picture they are entering the Office of the City Clerk, which is actually the Manhattan equivalent of getting married at "City Hall." Because of jury duty I stumbled upon wedding central for Manhattan and there were lots of couples and lots of bouquets. 
 
 
I had a nice chat with the man responsible for many of the bouquets. When I first saw him I thought it was odd to see a flower seller in the center of the courts, but quickly realized why he had set up his table there. There were also two photographers on the steps, ready to take pictures for anyone who didn't have a friend or relative with a camera accompanying them.
 
I'm returning to my regular Wedding Wednesday format and will only be posting weddings when I come upon them during my regular life. But I couldn't resist sharing my wedding discovery. 
 
It's winter here -- really and truly winter -- and I am even wearing a hat all the time when I'm outside. I've got my hat, my down coat and my fleece gloves and I was out today for Weight Watchers -- tomorrow's post -- and grocery shopping, and it was chilly. Otherwise I was very content to stay inside.   
 
As ever, thanks for visiting and keep cozy!

It is always wonderful to see love and the beginning of a new life. I smile and shed a tear every time I see it.

Brrr, it is cold outside. Everyday, though, brings us closer to spring.

What sweet, impromptu images! Not sure why, but that couple exchanging vows under their umbrella is my fav.

Gotta give props to that enterprising flower-seller!

How cute that you found yourself in the middle of wedding central. Weddings are such happy occasions, they do make one feel good.

Weddings are always wonderful to see! I can't imagine how lovely it would be to be married in the city like that. Sounds quite romantic ;)

Stay warm up there! Today, it is about 11* where I live....too cold for me!
