We knew we liked J and M the minute we met up them at a cafe in Brooklyn. For starters, they are beautiful to look at, but also radiate this joy that is completely infectious. And that’s exactly what their wedding was all about. Them, their joy, and the most important people in their lives who travelled from all around the world to celebrate with them. They got ready together at their apartment, with J in the bathroom and M in the bedroom, just one hour before their ceremony under the Brooklyn bridge. Their ceremony was a mere 5 minutes, just long enough for everyone to gather around them and hear them exchange vows. No muss, no fuss, just love. And this is exactly what we love about them.

A huge thank you to our very talented friend Billy Simons, for recording a cover of Usher’s OMG (the bride’s favorite song) for their slideshow, which you can see HERE.
