Nichole and David held a beautiful brunch wedding at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.
The weather forecast was not on their side, but the atrium was a wonderful alternative to the outdoors. Natural light beamed throughout the leaf-shaped room and the couple was surrounded by so much love.
David’s son had two very important jobs–he was the ring bearer and best man!
Nichole and David chose the Brooklyn Botanic Garden for their wedding because it’s one of their favorite places. Nichole shares, “It is truly a quiet refuge from the insanity that can be New York City. The garden served as a beautiful backdrop to a unique untraditional brunch reception despite the weather not cooperating as anticipated. We were fortunate with an amazing team and family that pulled everything together and made it especially memorable despite the rain. Our ceremony was accompanied by live music from the terrific string quartet, Sterling Strings, whom David and I felt added the perfect ambiance! A close family friend performed the ceremony that was intimately crafted and paid warm tribute to my grandparents. The “I do’s!” were immediately followed by a reception hosted by Patina Events. Guests enjoyed a ‘New York bagel bar,’ handcrafted cocktails and a delicious seated meal. The ambiance was further carried out by the soothing Jazz duo of Sydney & Jake leading people to the dance floor. As a unique touch, guests were also waiting in line to get their wedding faces immortalized by the very talented caricature artist, Kaheim Archer. We could feel all the love in the room and we are forever grateful to all our friends and loved ones, and those who worked to make our very special day a wonderful success!”
The atrium was quickly transformed into a dining room with special personal touches that were perfect for a botanical wedding.
Congratulations Nichole and David!
