A Brilliant Wedding: EJ & Mike

We can't stop dreaming about Spring in NYC! Nothing is more perfectly seasonal than an April wedding at the New York Botanical Garden! EJ & Mike set the tone with bright, watercolored, floral invitations. How wonderful must it have been for guests to get this green envelope in their mailboxes in the middle of dreary February?

The bride and her ladies spent the morning sipping champagne dressed in bright, floral robes. Sisi Nike and Face the Day gave the ladies their amazing wedding-day glow! They then changed into equally colorful dresses to complement their lush, seasonal bouquets!

The couple had their first look surrounded by a sea of bright orange tulips. They then continued around the gardens and took portraits under a rainfall of freshly bloomed cherry blossoms  - it was the epitome of Spring romance!

Their ceremony took place under a Chuppah that has been in Mike's family for years and incorporated an heirloom tallit. It was a beautiful tribute to his family's Jewish heritage! The couple also chose to light a unity candle after a beautiful ceremony by Reverend Jeddah Vailakis

Guests were greeted with lush arrangements in peach and yellow tones by Diana Gould. They enjoyed the ever-fabulous catering of Stephen Starr and danced the night away to DJ Benny!

At the end of the night, guests were treated to Jars by Dani - a favorite of the bride's! They were even customized with adorable stickers with caricatures of the couple!
