Diana and John managed to put together a low-key wedding in a totally glorious setting.
Maybe the fact that they got ready together helped take the pressure off, but my feeling is that those two were just the kind of people to take everything with calm and poise.
Since they live in Chicago I did not get the chance to meet them before the wedding day, and upon arriving at the hotel I was welcomed by two kind and sweet people getting ready just like they would on a regular morning, besides the Pnina Tornai dress, the Hugo Boss suit, and the half dozen people gravitating around them with makeup brushes and boutonnieres.
We took a stroll around Grand Army Plaza for some pictures before heading to the Palm House at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden for a very special and VIP tour of the several greenhouses on the premises.
The whole day went by smoothly, but yet it left a dazzling memory. Congrats to the two of them, may you keep shining effortlessly!
