Brooklyn Botanic Gardens Wedding at The Palm House

A week before Sue and Chris's wedding at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, the weather called for rain and heavy thunderstorms. So, we started to prepare for the worst. The happy couple purchased very cute clear umbrella's from kate spade new york and went into their wedding day with positive attitudes hoping for the best. And guess, what happened? We beat the rain!

As Sue began to put on her beautiful wedding dress from Rivini By Rita Vinieris at the Marriott Hotel at Brooklyn Bridge, the drizzle started to slow down. By the time we arrived at the Palm House, the rain had completely stopped! We were in luck!! It was an emotional first look between Sue and Chris inside the stunning Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. Afterwards, we walked the gardens making stops at Bluebell Wood, the Rose Garden and Magnolia Plaza during their bridal portraits. As I photographed the very last family photo, the rain started again. It was divine timing if I have ever seen it! Our two hour window for photos was absolutely rain-free!! Sue and Chris held their wedding ceremony inside the breathtaking Palm House at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens.

They recently renovated the space and it's so much lighter and brighter now which of course, I absolutely love. What an incredible wedding venue to say your vows and become husband and wife. The newlyweds shared their first kiss and celebrated their marriage with their closest family and friends. Hank Lane's Sugar Lane Band brought the house down as everyone danced the night away! Sue and Chris are a perfect match and it was so incredible to be part of their wedding from their engagement session to capturing their wonderful wedding day. I cannot wait to see where these two go (they are always traveling!) and I hope to stay part of their lives capturing all their important moments as husband and wife! Congratulations Newlyweds!! xo

Colorful Wedding at The Tribeca Rooftop

I'm so excited to start the New Year with one of my favorite weddings, Melanie and Jamie's colorful and romantic Spring wedding at Tribeca Rooftop. Melanie was radiant in her ivory, hand beaded wedding gown from Maggie Sottero along with her Mother's breathtaking heirloom diamond necklace. The Bride got ready at the Rooftops white artist studio, which is a photographers dream and great backup location for unseasonable weather. Melanie envisioned a bright assortment of flowers to celebrate their Spring wedding in New York City and Spina amazing floral arrangements took her breath away. It was a hot and humid day in NYC and luckily the rain held off until Melanie and Jamie were officially husband and wife. We quickly ran outside to capture the sweeping views of the manhattan skyline. Guests were greeted by the oversized, hand written chalkboard welcome sign and seating charts as soon as they stepped out of the elevators. The happy couple share a love of music and have dedicated their lives to teaching and studying music. Hank Lane was the perfect band to get the dance floor going during their candlelit reception. It was a honor being part of their wedding day and so thrilled to share some of my favorite images. Congratulations to the happy couple! xo
