Joelle and Vlad\'s wedding

Brooklyn Botanic Garden

When planning my wedding, I of course wanted the day to be perfect, but also wanted to be very laid-back. We had a (relatively) small wedding, with only family and very close friends. While there were plenty of mishaps leading up to the wedding, but once I began to walk down the aisle, all of the stress evaporated. I was so happy to be marrying my best friend and surrounded by our closest love ones. While most people would say their wedding day is the best day of their lives, my husband and I agree that the true best day was the next morning- waking up as husband and wife for the first time.
