An elegant and relaxed wedding at Prospect Park Boathouse by Karen Kristian Photography

026

I’ve seen a lot of weddings in my day, but the ones I really remember are the ones that seem completely natural and genuine. You know, those weddings where the bride and groom are just laughing and laid back, and where their guests seem to be having the time of their lives. That’s why I’m so excited to share this lovely wedding by Karen Kristian with all you lovely brides today! I just. Can’t. Get. Enough. Of this friggin’ adorable bride and groom. I’d say in 90% of their photos Brian and Valerie (groom and bride) are either giggling, laughing, chuckling or smiling serenely at each other…and that’s a great thing!

Their special day took place on the gorgeous grounds of the Prospect Park Boathouse in Brooklyn, right on the water of Prospect Park lake. I love the stateliness and elegance of the setting — at first, I thought their special day was a destination wedding at some old European manor! Even though the venue is completely breathtaking, Brian and Valerie’s special day was totally unfussy, which makes for a perfectly relaxed wedding. Read on to see more of their one-of-a-kind celebration!
