Jimmy & Stephanie’s Queens Botanical Garden Wedding

Stephanie and Jimmy met while on a spring break in Jamaica. They were next door neighbors at their hotel and immediately hit it off, so much so that they began dating after their vacations ended. It seemed fitting that Jimmy would later propose to Stephanie on a beach since that is where their love story began.

I met with Stephanie at the Verve Hotel as she prepared for her Queens Botanical Garden wedding.

This is a handwritten note about a handkerchief carried by the brides in Stephanie’s family, it was written by her late grandmother.

Stephanie’s mother got a little emotional as her daughter put on her wedding gown.

This sixpence was placed in Stephanie’s shoe as a symbol of good luck, yet another wonderful family tradition.

The bride’s little helpers really loved their parasols.

I loved these fans adorned with the bride and groom’s initials.

After the ceremony we explored the gardens for Jimmy and Stephanie’s portrait session. There were so many naturally stunning backdrops.
