When we first met Claire + Victoria, we felt an instant connection with them, their love story, and everything they described about their wedding plans. Shortly after our meeting, we photographed these two lovely ladies for their Engagement Session in DUMBO. While they gave warning that they would feel uncomfortable in front of the camera, it was obvious to us that they were naturals! The chemistry and love between them is beautiful, and we knew their wedding day would be just as special. It was easy to say that we were beyond thrilled for their upcoming wedding at NYBG. A New York Botanical Garden wedding is everything you’d imagine: beautiful and filled with an abundance of color, nature and cozy little nooks to explore. And it was going to be just perfect for these lovely ladies!
Claire + Victoria’s New York Botanical Garden wedding ceremony took place at the lovely Stone Mill overlooking a quiet stream and lush greenery. It was pretty much the epitome of perfection in our book. A beautiful and intimate outdoor ceremony, lush florals and dense backgrounds, and a personalized ceremony conducted by Claire’s brother Reid. It was an honor to witness the union of these special ladies, and the night continued with joyous celebrations with all their closest friends and family. The staff at Starr Events know how to put on a great event, and it’s always a pleasure working with them! And the florals and tablescapes designed by Enza from Diana Gould Ltd. were just breathtaking.
We always feel a special bond with our couples, and enjoy seeing many of them following their wedding. However, Claire + Victoria are currently planning their next big move across the pond to London! Lucky for us, England is one of the Femina ladies’ favorite places to visit, so we hope to see them again in the near future! Until then, we’d love to share some of our favorites from their special day!
