A cheerful Brooklyn Botanic Garden wedding by a guy + a girl photography


Today’s gorgeous wedding hails from the one and only great city of New York! And oh, how the couple showcased their love for the city in this very special day of love for each other. With a stunning ceremony at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and a reception in the always gorgeous Palm House, Audrey and Daniel’s big day was filled with laughter, a beautiful Monique Lhullier dress, and a delicious looking Momofuku Milk Bar cake!

Some words from the photographers, Michael and Lauren of a guy + a girl photography:

“Boston meets Brooklyn! There was a sweetness in the air on Audrey and Danny’s wedding day in Brooklyn, New York. The bride and a group of lovely ladies fine-tuned each others’ makeup while sipping champagne at the Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg, while the groom and his crew prepped at his parents’ beautiful brownstone in Park Slope. We followed Audrey and Danny around Brooklyn in their vintage NYC checker cab before heading back to Brooklyn Botanic Garden for their I-do’s. Their ceremony was as sweet as the florals gently floating through from the surrounding gardens. The party that followed was wild; tipsy elixirs flowed freely, a mix of high heels and bare feet wore down the dance floor and the room was abuzz with laughter, kissing and singing.”

This Brooklyn Botanic Garden wedding sounds like our kind of party! Read on for more pretty details and fun times from Audrey and Daniel’s big day:

The moment you get engaged there are a million things swirling around in your head. Happiness, excitement, and love are probably a few. When all the craziness settles down the thought “how in the world am I going to pay for a wedding” might cross your mind.

It is one thing to deal gracefully with wedding suggestions when someone isn’t paying, but when they are it can get even more complicated!
