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
