We’ll probably never forget the day we met Taylor and Dan in a coffee shop in soho.  Though they weren’t technically engaged yet, Taylor said she had been following us on social media for a while and already had pretty solid ideas of what she wanted for her wedding.  Her excitement + enthusiasm was totally contagious and we were immediately charmed by this quirky + cool force of energy from Queens and her tall, handsome, mid-western guy.

They tied the knot at the Brooklyn Botanic after an engagement that prioritized two things: to have a wedding that was uniquely theirs – true to their style, their relationship, and the things they love – and to throw a killer party for their friends and family.  Every detail at the wedding was personalized–R2D2 cake toppers (a nod to their love of Star Wars), a monogrammed corn hole board (a homage to their college football tailgating days at Boston College) and they used a bee motif for various items from stationery to the molded butter on each table.  Guests sipped signature cocktails with bee-motif’d cocktail stirrers as they signed in on Jenga blocks.(description from Viva Max Weddings)

We love these two and were so psyched to be the lucky photographers who documented their super fun, unique wedding day!!  Congrats, Tay + Dan!  #siercomesthebride
