Spring might be a good nine months away, but the second I locked eyes with this Brooklyn Botanic Garden wedding I’ve been hoping and praying it’d show up a wee bit sooner. With trees in all their fully bloomed splendor, there’s never been a more perfect setting to swap vows, and Rebecca Yale documented the day in gorgeous fashion. Have a peek right here!

From Rebecca Yale… Kelsey and Noah’s Spring wedding in the Brooklyn Botanical gardens was a true celebration of Spring and love! After a terrible winter in New York City we felt Spring would never come, but on the day of Kelsey and Noah’s wedding the skies cleared, the sun shined on the newly blossomed cherry blossoms and we were given a perfect Spring day. Kelsey and Noah were married under the shade of a beautiful tree in a meadow in the gardens and then celebrated with their friends and family in the Palm House at Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. The afternoon felt like a joyous garden party and they let the beauty of the gardens and the flowers take center stage, picking up the light pink of the cherry blossoms throughout the day in the details from the bride’s shoes to the groom’s tie.
Light poured in from the glass roof of the palm house giving the laser cut place cards and menus a beautiful dimensionality as it created shadows on the white table cloths. The guests were serenaded by a 3-piece band with oldies, each song hand chosen by Kelsey. Perfectly fitting the garden party motif, the bride and groom gave cans of seeds as a thank you to their guests before making a grand exit through a cascade of yellow and pink rose petals to a vintage yellow taxi.
It was so wonderful to capture genuine moments of love and joy between Kelsey and Noah. I knew they would be so much fun to photograph when we first met and she told me- “We both love the color green, spicy food, and, of course, each other.” Kelsey even had inscribed in Noah’s ring “I love you most” one of my favorite details of the day!

Twinkling market lights, exposed brick, boho-chic gowns from Gabriella Bridal Salon, an array of locally grown treats from Naturally Delicious… it can only be the likes of an artisan-driven Brooklyn fete at The Green Building. It’s a styled soiree that will have your head turning at every beautifully crafted, foodie-loving, glowing moment from Rock Paper Scissor Events and Kat Harris Photography. See it all here!
From Kat Harris Photography… Summer is upon is, and to me that means late nights on patios with friends surrounded by twinkle lights, good wine, yummy food, and lots of laughter. As I recently moved to Brooklyn from LA I am learning there is quite a “Brooklyn Culture”. Brooklynites enjoy all things artisan. I’ve yet to meet a person in Brooklyn that was not a foodie. The Brooklynite is also passionate about local agriculture and American Made products.
For the Brooklyn Bride and groom there is no better place to experience the perfect mixture of a Brooklyn Artisan Wedding other than The Green Building. Local cuisine extraordinaire Loren of Naturally Delicious is a highly sought afterr caterer for the Artisan couple. A lot of her ingredients are locally grown, and all fresh!
Together we created the ultimate summer wedding for The Brooklyn Bride from: restored wooden tables to Brooklyn made vodka for moscow mules, to twinkle lights and exposed brick to a simple yet unique floral bouquet. The Brooklyn Bride is a foodie, she is a a bohemian at heart yet encapsulated by elegance and grace, she cares about craftsmanship, and the quality of her products, and where they are made. And there’s no better time to celebrate than under the warm blanket of a summer night on the East Coast filled with family, friends, good music, impeccable food, and of course twinkle lights!
