Brooklyn Botanic Garden Wedding: Tracy and Dan

This spring’s cold weather was a double-edged sword. Tracy and Dan were married in May, a bit after the traditional peak of the cherry blossoms at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens Palm House. But thanks to a late-to-arrive spring, they exploded into color just at the right time. The coordinator surprised them with the idea that they could have the ceremony right out in the middle of them, and thank the photo gods that it all worked out.

Of course, the cold hadn’t quite stopped snapping. Want to creating a bonding experience for a group of bridesmaids who don’t know each other that well? Have fantastic light, flowing dresses and a ceremony in the low 50s. By the end they were huddled together, and instant friends just in time for a wild, beautiful party. I tell ym couples that cold is romantic — it makes you want to be closer together — but I didn’t realize how broadly this can be applied.

Thanks to Braham Rhodes for helping out!

New York Botanical Gardens Stone Mill Wedding: Eric and Lea

The Stone Mill at the New York Botanical Gardens is one of my favorite spots for intimate weddings. It feels like the most awesome bed and breakfast sitting on top of an amazing catering company, plunked down in the middle of the Garden of Eden. Hard to go wrong.

It also has a lot of connection to Fordham alumni like Lea (and myself) for whom the NYBG was an oasis amid tests and theses and countless late nights. Lea and Eric actually commissioned a map for their guests of the long and winding road their relationship had taken, from the Bronx to LA to Canada and back again.

It was a great experience to share in this part of their journey.
