OH MY GOODNESS!!! Words do not suffice to wrap up this absolutely incredible early spring boho wedding day at Florentine Gardens, but I’m going to TRY! First off, Brittany and Daniel had the BEST energy the entire wedding day! Smiles truly did not leave their faces from the moment we arrived to seeing them break it down on the dancefloor. I love how truly overjoyed these two were to finally tie the knot and call one another husband and wife!! They pushed through all the limitations that the pandemic threw their way, and they managed to have a perfect totally-them wedding day!
I loved getting to work alongside some of NJ wedding vendors best! I was so wow-ed by my girl Tracey of Tracey Reynolds Floral Design who blew this boho dream day out of the water. I have to give a major shout out to the amazing hairstylist, Kristen Okaly, and makeup artist, Jacqueline Adevai who dolled these ladies up like gems, but also kept the morning running so smoothly!
Brittany chose the dreamiest and most thoughtful details from her red-bottom heels to her something borrowed – an aquamarine ring – left to her from her great-grandma! She also kept her uncle’s wedding ring close as he passed away and was so special to her! Dan chose some really special details for himself like his Carry Light American925 cufflinks and ‘I Do’ on the bottom of his shoes!
One of my favorite moments was hearing how everyone clearly knew how safe Brittany will always be with Dan. They mentioned it in toast after toast, and it just showed how protective he is of his girl. I loved seeing them peek over at one another and smile through the tears as their loved ones toasted to their future!
I think you’re going to be so obsessed with this spring boho wedding! Keep scrolling for all the goodness! 🙂
Brittany’s co-worker is the one to thank for this duo meeting! Her co-worker is married to one of Dan’s close friends, and she had dropped hints for a while that Brittany and Dan would be great together! Brittany took a bit to warm up to the idea, but she ended up agreeing to go on a date with him! Brittany had never been on a blind date before, so she was definitely a little skeptical at first!
They had a date set at an Italian spot in Queens, New York! The night of their first date, it was raining! Brittany took the subway all the way out to Queens from Manhattan. To her surprise, when she got off the subway, Dan was waiting at the bottom of the stairs with a big umbrella for her!
At the restaurant, she realized that Dan had already been there to reserve their table and order apps and wine ahead of time! How thoughtful is he?! Their date went so well that they ended up talking until the restaurant closed! 🙂
Thank you for making this entire journey together such a fun and rewarding experience! It’s been such a pleasure since day one to get to know you two, learn your story, and capture these memories! I’m so so honored and grateful that you chose me to document your love story! I LOVE the magic we created from your engagement session to your big day!! Such a perfect kick off to 2021! Cheers to the new Mr. and Mrs. Burke – may your life together always be as exciting and joy-filled as you felt on this day! <3 Congratulations!!! Love you so much!
