The establishment of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden over a century ago paralleled the modern development of New York City. As skyscrapers, paved streets, and bridges grew like weeds, it was nearly impossible to find a soft spread of grass or blooming flower garden. Not much has changed to the concrete jungle that has come to define the cityscape. And thankfully, not much has changed to Brooklyn Botanic Garden since opening in 1911. It continues to be a designated green public space where people can come and get lost in the mesmerizing splendor of nature. It is no wonder then that the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is an in-demand venue for couples planning their wedding in New York City.

The wedding ceremony is typically designed around an archway, chuppah, or arrangements. Entering high wedding season with warmer days in the forecast, many couples are opting to head outdoors to say “I Do.” From spectacular views overlooking lush landscapes and signature city horizons to intimate gardens and terraces, the allure of an open-air ceremony is undeniable. What makes decorating for an outdoor ceremony so exciting for us as wedding florists is the variety of styles and elements that can be used to help set the stage for this one-in-a-lifetime event between two people. We love working with clients to bring their outdoor wedding dreams to life.

After meeting on Match.com, Cara and Vince had their first phone call. It was morning by the time they finally hung up and six hours had gone by without either of them noticing. They decided to get together in person two days later. Their connection was immediate and felt effortless from the very beginning. “I knew that I wanted to be with Vince from the moment that he looked at me through the front door on our first date,” she recalls.

We are excited to introduce Cara, our BB Featured Bride for February. Cara and Vince married on an unforgettable October day in the backyard of their home in Pennsylvania. Here, she shares the first chapter in their Real BB Wedding story.

While many wedding venues offer the refined luxury that has come to define New York style, few offer an escape from it all. By this we mean a setting that feels far off, magical, and is surrounded by blooming flowers and sprawling greenery. This is what makes Stone Mill at New York Botanical Garden so special. Tucked away in the lush, natural grounds that were founded in 1891, Stone Mill blends historic charm with modern comforts. With a capacity of 60 to 120 guests, it provides outdoor and indoor spaces to accommodate a wedding from start to finish. Marked by exposed wooden beams, original brick walls, and warm lighting, the newly renovated building radiates intimate romance.
