From Parris With Love

Brooklyn Botanical Garden


Classic with a Twist | Taryn & Adam

Taryn and Adam first met at their favorite place in the world; the dance floor. That party was in Greenwich, CT but a week of back and forth via texting inspired Adam to boldly meet up with Taryn for a second night out. This time, they stormed NYC with Taryn's girlfriends and the two never looked back...

Their first official date was dinner and a movie (The Lion King in 3-D) but Adam redeemed himself with last minute Watch The Throne tickets at the Barclays Center. Three weeks later, he made a "statement" (to quote his brother Will Boardman) and invited Taryn to meet his mom at his birthday brunch. 

Since then, Taryn and Adam have shared many adventures; from their mutual love of music which now spans numerous concerts and festivals, to traveling through Costa Rica and an epic trip around Europe where Adam coordinated a surprise proposal that included close friends and family. Afterward, the couple continued their journey through Denmark, Netherlands, Spain, and Italy. Despite both of them losing their phones that weekend, and Taryn getting her bag stolen, the experience was nothing short of remarkable and helped set the stage for an epic wedding weekend in Brooklyn.

Beginning with an intimate rehearsal dinner at the Wythe Hotel, the spirit of celebration poured into the streets of Williamsburg and continued cross town at The Brooklyn Botanic Garden. After a brilliant sunlit and device-free ceremony, over two-hundred guests danced to their heart's content through midnight.

Dancing continued til 6am at an undisclosed warehouse party.
