The group headed to the Borough Hall station, using the Municipal Building entrance.
The newlyweds wait for their train.
Beware of the closing doors: Francis and her wedding party shared a laugh.
Now this is a wedding portrait that you won't see in Brides magazine.
Finally, someone gave up his seat for the bride.

This was awesome! There's no better way to get around than the NYC Subway. I love the picture of them under the Borough Hall sign - just two people waiting for the train! Also, love the sneakers. Best of Luck Vanessa & Matt.
