Classic & Timeless Brooklyn Botanic Garden Wedding

James and Kimmy’s Brooklyn Botanic Garden Wedding was just beautiful. The Brooklyn Botanic Garden was the perfect venue for James and Kimmy’s classic and timeless wedding. The lush greenery of this venue provided a backdrop that cohesively tied into the wedding! Brooklyn Botanic Garden allows events in two of their spaces. Depending on how many guest’s you are having, and whether you are wanting an outdoor/indoor wedding, you’ll be able to choose different spaces for your garden wedding that fit with the vision of your wedding.

Kimmy & James’s Wedding Day

The day started off with the couple getting ready in separate rooms with their wedding party. There I captured detail photos and Kimmy and her bridesmaid getting ready in their satin pajamas. In the groom’s room, James was getting ready with his groomsmen as the anticipation started to build. As Kimmy slipped into her sleek dress, I captured the moments with her and her bridesmaids. I also just loved the gloves Kimmy wore with her gown, it fit right into the vibe of the wedding. 

It was actually raining the entire day, but fortunately enough the rain did not take away from the garden wedding atmosphere of this wedding. During James and Kimmy’s first look we were able to go into the Desert Pavilion and capture their first look there! Then we moved into the Tropical Pavilion and it was so full of lush greenery that you wouldn’t have even thought it was a rainy and gloomy day! That is why I love Brooklyn Botanic Garden! It offers so many spaces to truly capture the essence of a garden wedding! The ceremony took place in the Palm House and their reception in The Atrium! The couple’s family actually wore traditional Korean  garments for the ceremony to celebrate their heritage! It was such a special touch to their wedding day.

As we stepped into the reception it was breathtaking! The entire reception space was windows giving it an outdoor look while still being inside. The tables were decorated with fresh flowers, the perfect and greenery the perfect combo for a Brooklyn Botanic Garden Wedding! The rest of the day was absolutely amazing! I was able to capture moments in film for the couple for their cake cutting and the fun moments on the dance floor!
