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
Christina and Ben Wedding – Bride and Groom Walking Down the Aisle – Church of Our Saviour – Christian Oth Studio
While many couples choose to have their ceremony and reception at the same venue, Christina and Ben chose a more traditional setting to exchange their vows – the Church of Our Saviour. BB Featured Bride Christina reflects back on this part of her wedding and says, ‘it was really special because this is the church where Ben and I go every Sunday for mass.” In fact, after the couple became engaged, Ben decided to convert to Christina’s faith of Catholicism. “He actually received his confirmation and first communion there,” she says. “And we had the same priest, Monsignor Sullivan, who confirmed Ben marry us.” This week, we look back at how the couple blended tradition with personal meaning on their wedding day.

Courtney and Nathan Wedding – Bride and Groom Chuppah – Tribeca 360 – Josh Wong Photography
Courtney and Nathan went to the same high school together. “We weren’t high school sweethearts or anything,” Courtney says. It wasn’t until reconnecting after college in 2012 that they started dating. “We had known each other for what seemed like forever. Growing up in the same town as a person, there’s a sense that you share formative experiences and see the world in a similar way. I really felt this with Nathan,” she remembers.
We are excited to introduce Courtney, our BB Featured Bride for August. Courtney and Nathan married on an unforgettable day in June at Tribeca 360°. Here, she shares the first chapter in their Real BB Wedding story. Read More
Rachel and Seth Wedding – High Centerpiece – Brooklyn Botanical Garden – Julia Newman Photography
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. Read More
Stephanie & Rob Wedding – Bridesmaids Bouquets – Carousel Lighthouse Point – Sarma & Co.
When we first meet with our brides to discuss the design of their dream bouquet, they usually have one or two ‘go-to’ flowers in mind such as the garden rose, peony, or ranunculus. This is a great starting point, but rarely does a bouquet contain just one or two flowers. Rather, the colors, texture, and dimension that define a bouquet’s unique beauty are the result of major and secondary blooms in combination with fillers and greenery.
To help our readers better understand all the pretty details that go into assembling the perfect hand-held arrangement, we are sharing the floral recipes from our most ‘liked’ Real BB Wedding bouquets. Read More
