A couple weeks ago we traveled to New York City!! for Kemer and Erica’s wedding. They lucked out on the weather that day – it rained and was gloomy and cold the two days before and the day after their wedding day. The day of however, was perfect – beautiful, sunny and warm.
Their wedding was in the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and the reception was in The Palm House. Not only was it a gorgeous and unique setting for their day, but it was a photographer’s dream! Beautiful light everywhere!
Erica’s hair and make-up schedule ran really long, but she took it all in a stride and was laughing and smiling the whole time she was getting ready. Doesn’t she look positively radiant? There really isn’t a better word to describe her.
Apparently men waiting on women starts at a very young age… 😉
Love this shot of Kemer and his best man’s reaction as Erica came into view. And the ring bearer’s expressions is priceless.
The ceremony was an emotional one. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house. When Kemer was asked to accept Erica as his wife he exclaimed, “Absolutely, I do!”
Hello bridal party! Seriously radiant, Erica.
Kemer was looking pretty cool himself.
After the ceremony and formal pictures we headed out to explore all the amazing places the Botanical Gardens had to offer. We found this amazing field of flowers. We could have shot here for hours.
Ben’s favorite. Love the emotion in this one.
We always make sure we get a “wedding announcement/for the grandparents” classic pose of the bride and groom. I got them to hold it for about 3.5 seconds before I said something that was apparently quite funny and they burst into laughter.
Wow. Just wow, Erica. Amazing.
We attracted quite a crowd while we were setting up for the next shot. It was worth it though!
Preparing for The Entrance. The ring bearer was oh so cool.
First dance. Erica and Kemer danced by themselves for a minute and then invited all the guests up to join them; a very cool gesture. Nothing like a naughty cake topper to get people talking 🙂 Perfect for them.
LOOOOOVE the way he is looking at his new wife. A look really can say it all.
The toasts did not disappoint. The maid of honor and the best man had the crowd going.
Then the dancing started. Kemer TORE UP the dance floor. I’m jealous of his moves. Really, the worm?! = Awesome!
…and Erica didn’t do so bad herself. Love this moment between her and her honorary dad for the day.
So many amazing details.
Bartending rule #1 – never serve patrons who are clearly intoxicated. Nope, no rules broken here 🙂
Kemer and Erica – thank you so much for inviting us to be a part of your day. You guys are awesome. Much love.
