John and Lauren were married on a very hot July day at the incredible Brooklyn Botanic Gardens and were one of the most fun, laid-back and in-love couples I've ever worked with. Not to be thrown off by the warm weather, Lauren was absolutely stunning in her Vera Wang gown and throughout the day, I could see they were so in tune with each other, just genuinely happy to be together. Their outdoor ceremony was simple and refreshingly sweet, with the bride walking down the aisle to Tango from Scent of a Woman. When it came to the reception, their fun-loving personalities came out - a bourbon bar with spiced nuts showcased John's love for a great bottle of whiskey and their introduction song of Big Pimpin by Jay-Z showcased their lighter side. A great dance party followed as the new Mr. and Mrs. partied the night away under the glasshouse atrium. Congratulations to John & Lauren, it was such an honor to be part of your day!
