What a beautiful and fun wedding Christine and Filipe had at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden!
The weather and Mother Nature cooperated with us and the couple had their romantic ceremony outside under a big willow tree.
The couple exchanged vows and rings in front of friends and families then celebrated into the night in the beautiful Palm House.
Christine got ready in Queens at her parents house with her bridesmaids and Filipe was getting ready at his parents Upper East Side apartment with his brother and childhood friends. The first look between Filipe and Christine took place in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and Filipe was speechless how stunning Christine looked. We photographed all the couple’s portraits, the family and bridal party portraits in the garden. My favorite spot was the field of blue bells and the small stone bridge.
It was so nice to see familiar faces; I had photographed three couples’ weddings, who were guests at Christine and Filipe’s wedding.
Congratulations to Christine and Filipe who enjoyed their honeymoon in Portugal.
I had the pleasure to work with some wonderful vendors at Christine and Filipe’s wedding.
