i met lindsey a cold fall day over a year ago in williamsburg to chat about her wedding while the NYC marathon ran by us outside... i liked her immediately + felt so lucky that a talented art director like herself wanted to hire me to take her wedding photos! we kept in touch over the course of the year, as she would send me inspirational photos from time to time... i was getting a good sense of the day she was planning + loved all of the thoughtful time she was putting into every last detail. all of her portrait "inspirational" shots were sun flared + sun drenched + we were particular about timing portraits around that late golden hour to get that look. lo + behold as life would have it, September 23rd rolled around in a torrential downpour with no signs of letting up... that's never the ideal situation when you're planning an outdoor wedding with all outdoor photographs... but lindsey + steve were so unfazed by it + the didn't allow the weather to dampen a thing, other than the ground outside. that my friends, is true love. lucky for them (+ me) the palm house at the botanical gardens ended up a perfect plan b for photos inside + I actually really adore how they turned out. steve + lindsey could not have been more of a dream to work with + i feel so lucky to have documented their gorgeous day. they really truly completely adore each other + it was so evident as their marriage was celebrated + supported by so many dear friends + family... i love love.... here they are : Wedding Planning : The Bride Wedding Venue : The Palm House at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens Wedding Florals : Blondie's Treehouse Ceremony Music : Claremont Strings and Ensembles Reception Music : DJ Torbit Officiant : Niels Koizumi, friend of bride and groom Bridal Gown, Veil & Sash : All Vera Wang Brides Shoes : Jimmy Choo Grooms Tux: Paul Smith Bridesmaid Dresses : All Various Designers Invitations : The Bride and Ms. Lauren Hickey Hair for Bride and Bridal Party : Theresa Adams and Deborah Novick from Dop Dop Makeup Bride and Bridal Party : Michael Earley from Bobbi Brown at Barneys Photobooth Props : Little Retreats
