When New Yorker Nevona Friedman saw a gorgeous wedding taking place on the Brooklyn Bridge this past weekend, she just had to take a few photos.
The lighting was perfect right around sunset, and the backdrop of the historic bridge was breathtaking. But then she had a problem…she didn’t want to interrupt the personal ceremony, but also didn’t know how to get the photos for them.
So, as one does in the age of social media, she enlisted Twitter to help!
“If you were getting married on the Brooklyn Bridge this evening, I’ve got some photos for you!” she Tweeted.
After about 10,000 retweets and 1,000 comments, and a little help from NY 1, they found the couple: Nikolina Kovalenko and Stefan Ponova. They choose the bridge for its New York symbolism and also it had extra meaning because the crossed so many bridges together on their many worldwide travels.
The couple told the news channel that since family and friends couldn’t celebrate because of COVID-19, they wanted to make the ceremony especially private, and didn’t even hire a photographer! Luckily one New Yorker with an iPhone wasn’t too far away, and ended up catching the perfect moment by accident.
Love a good (pandemic) love story!
