A Beautiful Wedding and Reception at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden
More than a century old, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is a beautiful and historic location for a wedding. From the Victorian style Palm House and its glass interiors to the Japanese Hill and Pond Garden the Brooklyn Botanic Garden hosts a refuge for green space and calm amidst New York City. Weddings at Brooklyn Botanic Garden are hosted by Patina Events and wedding guests are welcome to stroll the grounds and enjoy the best in urban landscaping and design. Located at the edge of Prospect Park in Brooklyn, the botanic garden connects a bustling urban metropolis to a landscape of plants and natural formations. Close to the venue itself, Celebrity Path is a perfect location for intimate and more private moments and is a quick stroll to the Shakespeare garden where one can cut away from the path. The best part about the garden is its relative quiet in the heart of Brooklyn. It’s a place of peace within the hype and bustle of NYC.
Kendall and Chauncey celebrated their wedding in the Magnolia Plaza on the compass rose. Family and friends hugged and gathered together for a loving and intimate ceremony sharing laughs and tears of joy. A cool autumn wind blew through the trees to make wedding guests huddle together even closer. As their dearest friends and family spoke to them from and gave their heartfelt sentiments, each stood around various parts of the compass rose signifying direction and heading. Words of strength, momentum, sage advice. Then vows truly honorable and human – funny and deep and real. Moments later we found ourselves in the blue hour of twilight on the Lily Pool Terrace. Guests chatting and laughing with each other like old friends. And with the night, the party began. A dinner under the candlelit glass dome of the Palm House. A dance floor for the mighty. Through the night dancing, speeches, hugs and more dancing. The night twirling into the jazz rock and pop that is the soul of New York City.
Weddings are incredible days. They are an explosion of emotion and love. Energy that is intense and supportive and human. If photographs could tell much of the story I leave you with a select few that capture that day at the garden.
