A Made in New York Romance / New York Botanical Garden

  Words and Pictures by Angela Cappetta

When Robert, a writer and blogger for the Knot, met Evin, a union electrician, in front of his Brooklyn building-she was locking up her bike-he made his move.  He fell so head over heels blammo in love, he made a movie about it. (The Hollywood actor who played Robert was even a guest at their wedding.)

In true swank fashion, these two tied the knot at The New York Botanical Garden's Stone Mill.  Evin floated down the aisle in a sustainable couture gown by Angelo Lambrou, and they said their I-do's by a rushing river, surrounded by friends and family from as far away as Colombia, from where Evin's family hails.

The only thing more fiery than the Spanish being spoken all night was the spark these two share.  Enjoy the pictures below, which tell the story of the day, and watch the wonderful movie Robert wrote, which raconts their special New York love story.
