A wedding at The Top of the Rock

For German nationals Kai and his partner Annika, October 30th is an important date. It marks the day they met 7 years ago, as well as the sad passing of Kai’s mother, 3 years ago. They had already planned two previous weddings (large ceremonies with family and friends) but had been forced to cancel both. For the third attempt they decided to come to America - just the three of them - Kai, Annika and their little son Hugo - to the ‘Top of The Rock’ in New York City - - to “celebrate our love and nothing else!” They simply wanted to give that day, October 30, a wonderful new meaning. I was lucky enough to be there when the memory was created.
