Although it could be argued that this site is just as much about me as it is about trains, I do try and avoid discussing too much about my personal life. And rightly so, lest you try to show up to my house unannounced (yep, it happened), or try and convince me that despite you being double my age we should totally be together because you have a big you-know-what (yeah, that happened too. This may also be why the demographic of female railfans is so tiny). Nonetheless, it was too difficult to not share some of the wonderful photos from a wedding in the Terminal. Grand Central is gorgeous, and certainly one hell of a great place to get married. Brilliant photo ops are everywhere, and I finally got to get the shot I had planned for years of someone looking out from the hidden window in the Tiffany glass clock (though I happened to be on the opposite side of the camera lens).
To view the entire gallery, click “read more” below. All of the photos were taken by Johnathon Henninger, with the exception of the final two by Carey Wagner, who was looking up at the clock tower from Park Avenue.
Congratulations! I wish you all the best.
Thanks so much Al!
Thanks for sharing such a special moment with your many fans. Your photography is superb so it must’ve been hard to be on the ‘other side’ of the camera lens. All the best to you and your new husband.
Thanks, Jim, I appreciate it. It is pretty hard to be on the “other side” of the lens!
Fantastic! Congratulations to both of you!
Really enjoyed the photos, congratulations to you both
Thanks much, Frank!
All the best to you both. Thanks for sharing
Thanks so much!
Thank you so very much for sharing the photos of your special day. Best of luck to the both of you.
Thank you Marty!
How appropriate! I can see that you found a way to make your special day even more special. It certainly gives new meaning to the phrase “destination wedding!”
Haha, “destination wedding” – that’s funny! :) Thank you so much.
I LOVE reading your blog and enjoying your pictures, as a fellow commuter it is always fun. These pictures were beautiful, even with you on the other side of the lens. Rinku @spicechronicles.
Thank you so much!
Thanks so much for sharing the lovely photos! Congratulations and all the best to you and your husband!!
Thank you Judyth! Was good seeing you the other day, albeit briefly!
What a wonderful and happy experience, congratulations.
Thank you, Hank!
Congratulations to you and your husband. What a magnificent place to have your wedding, I absolutely love the photos. The clock one is spectacular to say the least. I miss working in GCT but I do get to visit at least once or twice a year. Cheers to you both!
Thanks Joe! It is such a magnificent place, and I know you have some wonderful photos of it too!
This is truly joyous and wonderful. So happy for you!
Thank you for sharing, and best of luck to you both in the future!!
Thank you Tom!
Congratulations from all of us at the New York Transit Museum, Emily!
Thanks much, Polly. I appreciate it!
May your marriage be happy and be forever.
While I’m here, I will apologize for the station name “Middletown – Town of Wallkill.” I lived in Middletown during the transition from the Erie Main Line to the Graham Line.
Thank you very much John!
All the times I was in Grand Central during the ’40s and ’50s I never realized how large the Tiffany Clock was until you guys stuck your heads out of “6”…WOW. Thanks for great photos, especially that one. Your obviously fun wedding shows the start of a wonderful relationship….blessings.
Thanks so much! Yeah, that clock is HUGE! You can never quite tell from the ground. This kinda gives you a sense of scale of the figures surrounding the clock.
Best wedding pictures ever! Loved your “attendants” – at least one of my favorite conductors (she was formerly an upper Harlem Line morning regular) there. Congratulations.
Thanks! Yeah Maria worked on the Harlem for just about ever and then maybe a year and a half ago switched over to Danbury.
Just saw this, Emily. Congratulations, and wish you the best of luck going forward!
Congratulations, and I wish you both much happiness. Thanks for sharing the photos with us.
Congratulations Emily! That was very nice of Maria and Timmy to be there for all of the photos in GCT. Photography reminisces that of the infamous Ryan Brenizer. Exceptionally done.
Congratulations Emily! Could not think of a better place to get married….
Emily, your blog is keeping *me* up tonight! That photo of you and your husband looking out of the “6” window in the GCT clock… BEST WEDDING PHOTO EVER!
Hey there, I am so happy to have stumbled upon your blog! Your photos wonderfully capture the spirit of riding. The pictures from Mongolia made me swell with wanderlust! And you had my dream wedding ceremony haha. My fiancé and I would love to get married in Grand Central Terminal, but I’m having a hard time finding information on the legal details. We don’t want to host an event, just stand in the middle of the terminal surrounded by forty of our loved ones, hold a five to seven minute ceremony, take a few photos, then leave. Your photos in the Tiffany clock and on the platform are ridiculously cool, and I’m not expecting access to anything like that, just the standard classic shots. This may be a long shot, but do you have any idea where I could find this information, or maybe the title of someone I should ask for when I call or visit?
I am extremely looking forward to perusing more of your blog and future posts!
