Many of us can attest that our first impressions of romance came from the fantastical animated films by Disney. But very few can say that Disney played a direct role in finding their true love. Christina and Ben both have acting backgrounds and met while working as performers for Disney Cruise Lines. Getting into character day in, day out in such close quarters, close bonds with colleagues inevitably form. Christina looks back at that exciting time when their relationship was transitioning from a working friendship to something more and fondly says, “I guess you can truly say, ‘it all started with a mouse.’”

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.

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.

Ask anyone who has gone through the process, figuring out the seating plan is one of the most brain-racking tasks of wedding planning. Unfortunately, once you have the plan mapped out on paper, there are still more details to consider in this area – specifically, the manner in which your guests will be guided to their seats. Typically, an escort card table or seating chart is used as decorative place marker, welcoming everyone to the reception while instructing them to where they should go and settle into for the rest of the night. The main goals of the escort card table and seating chart are to maintain visual interest, usher seamless flow from Part 1 to Part 2 of the event, and provide clear seating information. Unsure of which option is best for you? We are here to help.

Nailah and Hasan were all set to have their wedding in November 2020. “As months passed and the COVID-19 situation showed no signs of improving, I began to doubt if we would be able to get married this year as originally planned,” Nailah remembers. The couple had some major decisions to make. After much careful thought, they decided to go through with their wedding, and even pushed the date up to August. “We had just four weeks to pull everything together, and luckily, our venue and all of our vendors were available!”

Couples are going to great lengths these days to personalize their wedding in order to make sure that the celebration is one-of-a-kind and unforgettable. We’ve seen everything from live painters and wedding bands playing curated song lists to bouncy castles being incorporated to take the post-ceremony party to the next level. And while these all sound great, at the end of the night, every couple wants to ride off in the getaway car with a shared feeling that their wedding was a sincere expression of their style and personality from start to finish.
