Summer Wedding at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden
Who? : Rita + Andre
What? : Outdoor garden ceremony and indoor greenhouse reception at an botanic garden…in the rain!
Where? : Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Brooklyn, New York
When? : June 2017
This gorgeous venue has such a place in my heart. Partly it’s because I live within walking distance, partly because it’s just so dreamily, insistently perfect. I have never seen the rain held off from a wedding ceremony by sheer will and determination, but on this day I did! The downpours stopped precisely twice : once for the portraits of Rita and Andre together, and once for the brief outdoor ceremony. It was an honor to document the wedding of these two dynamic individuals. From Rita’s impeccable red lips to Andre’s gorgeous heart, the day was a dream from start to finish. (There was even a rainbow. Because of course there was!)
Here are just a few of my favorite images of the day:
