Stevie & Jake’s Wedding at The Palm House at Brooklyn Botanic Garden
As Stevie & Jake’s wedding day approached, the forecast was calling for rain. I knew no matter what happened we’d be able to get some truly lovely pictures because their venue, The Palm House at Brooklyn Botanic Garden, is blessed with amazing indoor areas featuring beautiful greenery and natural light, so I wasn’t too worried! Mainly I was hoping that the weather would hold out until after the initial first look and portraits during the mid-afternoon, as we’d have the opportunity to shoot outside the 1 Hotel Brooklyn by Brooklyn Bridge Park with the views of the skyline. Stevie put on her gown in a suite upstairs and WOW I knew Jake was gonna flip out when he saw her. We got lucky and were able to do Stevie and Jake’s first look was out by the water with the Brooklyn Bridge in the background, and we got all their wedding party and family groups done outdoors and even hop on over to the Cherry Blossoms for some final portraits of the couple alone before heading inside. The Ketubah signing and ceremony was quite lovely under the domed glass roof of The Palm House, and guests enjoyed a cocktail hour with private after-hours access to the three exquisite “Climate Rooms,” and got to stroll through the Bonsai room on their way back to the reception space. Highlights of the evening included the entertaining toasts by Stevie’s father and sisters and Jake’s brothers, an enthusiastic Hora and Mazinka, and a lively dance floor courtesy of Hank Lane’s Bobby Attiko Band, and of course Stevie’s incredibly stylish white sequined party dress she changed into at the end of the night! The whole affair was expertly coordinated by Jackie of Busy Bride Planning and I couldn’t have been more tickled to be there to capture all the memories. Congratulations to Stevie & Jake!
