Alexandra and Robert Wedding – Bride and Groom Portrait – New York Botanical Garden – A Day of Bliss
Alexandra met Robert at a mutual friend’s birthday during the summer of 2009. “I instantly noticed his bright, green eyes,” she remembers. “They had energy and showed that he had a kind soul.” Keeping in touch over the next couple of months, Alexandra learned they had a lot in common. “He comes from a nice, close-knit family and grew up by the water.” When she left to study abroad in London and Robert travelled to see her, she realized that he was going to be someone very special in her life.

Allison and Josh Wedding – Bride and Groom Portrait – New York Botanical Garden – Emma Cleary Photography
In the age of dating apps, so many things need to be in sync for two people to hit it off on the first meeting. Past experiences and expectations are significant factors in this type of situation and both individuals may not be on the same page. Time, in some cases, however, works out the kinks of matchmaking. Allison recalls her first date with Josh. “We initially connected in 2017 on Hinge. We got drinks and the date went well enough that we both seemed open to seeing each other again.” They made plans for a second date at the Comedy Cellar only to have Josh cancel at the last minute. “Josh pretty much ghosted me for the next six months. I had just been on a great first date when he re-emerged. Something told me to give him another chance. It’s part of our story, though a part we kept from our families until it was revealed at our wedding,” she says with a laugh. Read More

“We’ve been to so many weddings, but never one on a Manhattan rooftop. After taking in the views, we couldn’t see us getting married without the NYC skyline in the background. It was just our vibe – the venue had everything we imagined for a dream wedding.” This week, BB Featured Bride Joye reminisces on her breathtaking sky-high ceremony at Tribeca Rooftop.

As guests made their way to the rooftop patio, they we welcomed with an iconic scene of downtown Manhattan that harmonized the city’s past and present, showing off time-worn landmark buildings against towering sleek skyscrapers. The weather couldn’t have been more picture-perfect. With not a cloud in the sky, sunlight filtered down, dancing off the steel and brick architectural giants to luminous effect. Read More
Joye and Scott Wedding – Bride and Groom Portrait – Tribeca Rooftop – Rafal Ostrowski Photography
Joye and Scott ran in the same circle of friends during college, but they didn’t start dating until after graduation. “I finally caved and let him take me out,” Joye says with a laugh. They clicked immediately and soon realized their connection went far deeper than anything they had experienced during those casual get-togethers at school. “I can honestly say that I wanted Scott in my life for the long-haul from the beginning. He really wasn’t the type to be in a steady relationship. In fact, I was his first serious girlfriend, so I knew that he had the same feelings.” Read More
