Nora + Jared // Brooklyn Botanical Garden Feminist Wedding

Nora & Jared’s Brooklyn wedding was so much fun. We walked and cabbed around the city stopping at some gorgeous photo spots, finding the Nuts 4 Nuts cart (their fave) and enjoying the beautifully sunny day. Their ceremony and reception were at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, such an amazing wedding venue! Nora & Jared’s ceremony was filled with feminist love letters and poems, and was officiated by Nora’s sister. My feminist heart was swooning listening to these two recite their vows in such an equal and unapologetic fashion. Nora’s outfit was the same skirt and jacket that her grandmother was married in (see photo below!) and the necklace she wore had also been passed down from her grandmother and worn by many different women in the family on their wedding days!

N&J and all their guests really know how to party, the dance floor was PACKED and we were so sad when it was time to call it a night. DJ Coolhand really brought the jams, and everyone danced the night away!

Amanda & Joel's NYC Marathon Wedding at the Greenpoint Loft

New York City Weddings have a life of their own, and I'm always happy to travel up to The Big Apple, especially when I get to work with such amazing and driven couples as Amanda & Joel. These two met in a running club, and appropriately ran the Brooklyn Half Marathon the morning of their wedding with 55 of their guests. They then got ready together at home, and took a taxi over to their gorgeous venue The Greenpoint Loft in Brooklyn. 
Amanda and Joel incorporated so many unique rituals into their celebration. Joel's father comes from Chinese heritage where tea is important, and Amanda's parents hail from Georgia where tea is also important (iced tea). The tea ceremony involved them serving tea to both sets of parents. Joel's parents were served Chinese tea, and Amanda's parents were served southern iced tea. Joel's mom is from Guatemala, and there is a tradition of lassoing the bride and groom together during the ceremony, so this was incorporated right before they read their vows.
I left Amanda & Joel's wedding feeling energized even after a full day of running around the city. There was so much love and giddiness in the air, and everyone was just so thrilled to support these two on their next adventure together.
