A NY Brooklyn Botanical Garden Real Wedding

Peggy & Chris, both from New York, met several years ago while in medical school, but only connected several years later, when they were called to see the same patient in the hospital. Through a series of unintentional events, including Chris "pocket-dialing" Peggy numerous times, they decided to try their luck at love.  Just a couple years later, Chris proposed to Peggy under the stars in Hawaii.  Cleverly, Chris snuck in his own telescope that when looked into, the "stars" spelled "Will You Marry Me?". Of course Peggy said "Yes!", just as a shooting star shot across the sky!

This is such a beautiful wedding taken place at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. The colors are extremely light and airy and complement the venue and the time of year very well.  I also love the fun details of the cake topper and the table numbers and place cards!
