Brian Cannella met his future wife, Kate Boe, upstate at Union College, but now that the pair are NYC residents, they sprang for a decidedly cosmopolitan wedding in Battery Park.
Little did Brian know that meeting Kate would lead him to not just the first, but the second love of his life as well — her toy poodle, Fletcher. “Brian wanted him in the ceremony,” Kate says with a laugh.
The couple’s other mutual love is the water, which is why they chose The Ritz-Carlton New York, Battery Park for their special day. “It feels like a destination within the city,” Kate explains. They especially adored the property’s 14th floor terrace with its amazing views of the Hudson River.
The bride chose to be married in May because it is cherry blossom season, and she wanted the vibrant braches to be the center of her floral arrangements.
