Could there be a more breathtaking venue than the The Palm House at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden? The glass-dome conservatory is the perfect setting for a romantic ceremony and the most elegant of receptions even with a raindrop or two. Brookelyn Photography captured one of the loveliest, most magical weddings my lucky little eyes have ever seen. You won’t want to miss a moment from this grand affair so make sure you stop by the full gallery!
From the bride… Steve and I were married at the beautiful Palm House at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens on the evening of the 23rd of September. Originally, we planned for an outdoor ceremony under a willow tree in the gardens, but torrential rain was pouring down the entire day and evening just did not seem to want to let up. Fortunately, I could not have chosen a better venue because a not-so-ideal weather situation turned out to be such a magical moment. Walking down the aisle while the rain fell onto the magnificent glass house was something that I’ll never forget. It’s quite hard to even describe the day and the feeling you get when looking around and seeing those that you love all gathered together to support and celebrate in your love. There were plenty of moments throughout the evening when I took a step back, watched everyone and really took it all in. It was important to me that I was present and could remember as many moments as possible and looking back, I can say that I do.
Our wedding was truly wonderful. I could not imagine anything better. We wanted a fun and romantic wedding, and I think we achieved just that. The dance floor was packed from the second our DJ started spinning up until the last song. One of the most incredible parts of the day was feeling all the love around us. We were truly humbled by our guests who traveled from all parts of the world to share this special day with us. As my lovely maid of honor toasted, “Here’s to love, laughter and happily ever after.”
From Brookelyn Photography… One detail I wanted to point out is that Steve’s last name is Choo… So I thought it particularly adorable that she added a “Mrs.” to the bottom of her Jimmy Choo shoes!
