Many bridal photos are focused on ensuring the clear presentation of the identity of the couple, but a robust wedding image gallery should also reflect the environment. In this image, we wanted to remind the couple of where they were for this pivotal moment. A place of rich history and engagement forging back many decades, the Bethesda Terrace became a popular congregation spot during the 60's.
Bethesda Terrace is on two levels, united by two grand staircases and a lesser one that passes under Terrace Drive to provide passage southward to the Elkan Naumburg bandshell and The Mall, the theatrical set-piece at the center of the park. The upper terrace flanks the 72nd Street Cross Drive and the lower terrace provides a podium for viewing the Lake. The carved stone is New Brunswick sandstone, with a harder stone for cappings, with granite steps and landings, and herringbone paving of Roman brick laid on edge.
