Melissa and David tied the knot in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden
I have photographed Melissa and David’s wedding in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden yesterday.
The weather was perfect with lots of sun and a nice breeze. The couple was so happy and in-love that they couldn’t stop smiling all day. The place for the ceremony and the reception was at the beautiful Brooklyn Botanic Garden and Palm House.
My friend and fellow photographer, Bill Wang, photographed with me bringing his creative energy.

Here are some of my favorite images from the special day.
