Ah, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden: where my heart lives in the springtime.  It has been my dream for years to photograph a Brooklyn Botanic Garden Palm House wedding in the spring,  need I explain why?  As you can see, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden in the spring is bursting with every variety of tulip, daffodils, cherry blossoms, magnolias and every other kind of flowering tree you can imagine.   It’s no secret how much I love flowers, but it is a little known fact that I considered becoming a florist for a short period of time, before I quickly realized the amount of contact I’d probably have to have with bugs.   Oh, and one other tiny, insignificant detail: I’m horrible even arranging a simple bouquet in a vase!   But that is all well and good because Sprout did an amazing job with the flowers, and I had the joy of photographing them, something I am infinitely better at than arranging them!

But photographing a dream wedding at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden would have been nothing without the perfect couple to capture, and Amanda and Patrick were a dream to work with.  Though some sad and unexpected events overthrew some of their plans for the day,  their positivity and resilience was nothing short of inspiring.   Rapturously in love, as you can see from their tearful first look,  their captivated expressions towards each other all day made capturing romantic images easy.  I’ve never seen a first look lessen the emotion of the ceremony.  In fact, a groom who tears up when seeing her for the first time almost always does so again or more so at the ceremony, and Patrick who got misty-eyed at both was no exception.  Though their ceremony was originally planned to be under the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s famous grove of cherry blossoms,  after a long winter, they were not yet in bloom.  However, I think it was a blessing in disguise because they instead got married under the grove of sweet-smelling Magnolias, which had burst into full bloom just a few days before.  Besides the beautiful trees framing the ceremony,  the intoxicating smell of the Magnolia blossoms lit by the setting sun created such a spectacular atmosphere for their guests.     Their first dance was like something out of Dancing with the Stars, a fun and complex swing number to Hall & Oats, “You Make My Dreams Come True,” and they NAILED IT!

Tara at Exquisite Affairs Productions was an incredible organizer and manager of the day despite its unexpected twists and turns.  Sally from Styles on B did an amazing job with the girls’ hair and Nicole Sievers did an awesome job with make up, and both finished so early!  Finally I want to say thanks to my team.  These pictures would not have been possible without my second shooter extraordinaire Mekina, a talented photographer who is always an upbeat and willing to help, and Amanda Pham my assistant and intern who is the master of film-rolling, social media and detail photos.

Amanda and Patrick:  I feel so blessed that you guys chose me to capture your wedding day.  It was such a pleasure.  I wish you guys a blessed, long, happy, healthy and prosperous marriage!
