{ annie + brad | ny botanical gardens | old stone mill }

Annie + Brad’s wedding at New York Botanical Garden‘s historic Old Stone Mill (built circa 1840) was a wonderfully charming affair.

The super cute couple were all smiles and laughter throughout the day…

The Peggy Rockerfeller Rose Garden was the stunning setting for their first look.

Earlier in the day, Annie readied at her parent’s Upper West side residence overlooking the park.

Love this etsy.com find… the custom ring nest was a great touch.

As the bride’s makeup was being applied…

Her bridesmaids got her beautiful Robert Bullock gown ready for her to dress.

The custom “bride” hanger was also from etsy.com.

Once in her gown, mom helped her daughter on with her cathedral veil.

The bride and her girls gazed out at the city.

Then headed to the rooftop for an even better view.

This vintage railed staircase offered me my “favorite” shot of the day…

What a coincidence, that the blue walls were the exact color of the J.Crew bridesmaids dresses.

Meanwhile, next door at the Excelsior Hotel, Brad and his guys were “tie-ing” things up…

Then went to the planetarium’s park for a few quick photo ops.

Up on the roof..

the bridesmaids and Annie had an amazing bird’s eye view of NYC.

Once at the Botanical Gardens, Brad awaited his bride-to-be…

And got a kiss from their adorable flower girl, in the interim.

Speaking of flowers, OMG!!! this bridal bouquet of pink peonies, created by Surroundings Flowers and Events are to die for.

This picturesque window at the Old Stone Mill, had the ultimate light streaming through, and made for a great photo moment.

Soon, Annie and the girls, headed towards the Rose Garden, for the big reveal.

But first, a moment with the flower girl…

And her little sis…

As Brad waited…

Annie hurried toward the magnificent gardens…

And right into Bradley’s arms!!!

They shared a kiss by the gazebo…

And throughout the gardens.

As their photo session came to a close, guests arrived in preparation for their riverside ceremony at the Old Stone Mill.

Annie and her dad shared a tender moment before he walked her down the aisle.

And presented her a beautiful antique bible, a family heirloom.

Before heading down the aisle, the groom’s mom straightened his boutonniere, and dad wished him well.

And the ceremony began…

The string trio played the wedding march…

As Brad and his groomsmen made their way towards the rivers edge.

The cocktail hour and reception were held at the Lillian and Amy Goldman Old Stone Mill.

As the newlyweds peeked in on the fabulous space, and cocktail hour, catered by Abagail Kirsh, guests enjoyed the fab food.

Annie and Brad headed into their reception… coordinated to perfection by Abigail Kirsch’s Paul Richards.

They danced…

Laughed uncontrollably at toasts…

Shared dances with loved ones…

Tossed the bouquet…

Took to the floor…

And cut the cake…

Then ended the night with a quite stroll as husband and wife.
