Romantic Wedding at the Brooklyn Winery

Rustic, romantic, and full of sweet personal details were three things this couple wanted on their wedding day, and in my humble opinion, they nailed it. Brooklyn Winery proved to be the perfect setting and Lindsay Madden was there to catch every stop along the way (including a pizza parlor!). Get cozy and take a spin through the stunning affair for yourself.

From Lindsay Madden PhotographyBrooklyn weddings always make me happy! They truly have a coolness factor that is always off the charts. I have been wanting to photograph at the Brooklyn Winery for quite some time and it was definitely meant to be when my high school friend Mike {aka the groom} reached out to me to see if I was interested in capturing his special day with his beautiful bride, Courtney.

Courtney and Mike were married on July 5th in front of their closet family and friends. The weather was beautiful and the city was quiet. Courtney and Mike envisioned their wedding day to be rustic, romantic and filled with sweet personal details. Brooklyn Winery was the perfect location to bring their vision to life. This venue was very organic with long wooden farm tables and succulents that ran up the walls. Large windows provided the ceremony and reception room with gorgeous natural light. Courtney started her day at their apartment where she was surrounded by her lovely bridesmaids, mom and grandmother. Rubi Jones worked her magic on Courtney’s hair and Jackie Schneider amplified Courtney’s beauty with a natural make up look. Courtney looked radiant in her Sarah Seven dress and I especially loved her pale blue Rachel Simpson shoes. She also accessorized her dress with a stunning piece by Twigs and Honey. Courtney’s bridesmaids wore navy, swiss dot J. Crew dresses and their whole look was tied together with lavender colored roses and white dahlias created by Opalia Flowers. Courtney and Mike opted for a first look and they really wanted to walk around their neighborhood for their portraits. My favorite part of their portraits was when they took me to their favorite pizza place in Williamsburg called Best Pizza. They were hungry and being the ultra cool couple that they are, they decided to share a slice.

After Courtney and Mike’s heartfelt ceremony, guests enjoyed a delicious sit down dinner. The reception decor complimented the venue perfectly. Candelabras and teal colored mason jars filled with baby’s breath lined the tables. I especially loved the whimsical feel of each dinner plate and Courtney & Mike’s cake was a naked cake designed by Momofuku. After dinner, the dance floor opened up and guests danced to the wonderful music of The National Reserve. The energy on the dance floor was infectious and everyone had such an incredible time. I absolutely loved capturing Courtney and Mike’s stunning affair!

Cozy Winter Wedding at Liberty Warehouse

With the temps dropping to chilly (read: nearly freezing) levels in New England this morning, a cozy wedding like this glowing Liberty Warehouse fete from Tory Williams is just what we need to warm up a little and get this week started right. And it’s quaint New York romance in every sense… brick walls paired with fur throws, Moscow Mules in hand, twinkling lights strung about and an after party at Brooklyn Brewery. It all makes for a gorgeously inviting gallery.

Warehouse

From the beautiful Bride…Both Rob and I fell in the love with the Liberty Warehouse the moment we walked in. It is such a great raw space with some beautiful, thoughtful touches that make it a very special venue. We really wanted a winter wedding in New York and the Liberty Warehouse gave us an indoor setting with amazing views of the city. The space was big enough to accommodate both ceremony and reception in separate areas (upstairs and downstairs, respectively) and gave guests new spaces to discover.

The ceremony was pretty traditional and we choose officants significant to both our families to perform it. The Statue of Liberty provided the perfect backdrop to the ceremony as the sun set over the river. After the ceremony, guests were invited downstairs to cocktail hour in the bridge room, where they were served our signature cocktail of a Moscow Mule. We wanted the space to keep its industrial feel but also have a soft romantic feel and used beautiful flowers by Brrch with vintage postcards that served as a guest book to do so. The colors were whites with hints of pale pink highlighted by the warm glow of candlelight. We created a cozy lounge around the giant brick fireplace in the center of the space complete with fur throws and a hide rug.

Guests were then invited into the reception area where every table was named after a city Rob and I had visited or lived together (London was the rowdiest!) The centerpieces were all slightly different with whites, reds and pale pinks, most featuring my favorite anemones. We hung bistro lights from the ceiling to give the space a more intimate feel and a bistro glow. After dinner, guests enjoyed “Steve’s Key Lime Pies” and “Baked” cookies and desserts, both local Brooklyn purveyors. Guests danced to the amazing tunes of the East Coast Band and no one wanted the party to end! As the band began to wind down, guests found their way next door to the Brooklyn Brewery for an after party complete with glow sticks, fake mustaches, pizza and late night snacks and of course, a DJ.

From Virgil BunaoI was called upon by Anne and Jason as their wedding photographer for their Brooklyn wedding, and I couldn’t believe how impressed I was by the entire day. It was such a personal day, a smaller wedding, but filled with heaps of emotion and love. The Liberty Warehouse was a great space, perfect for Anne and Jason’s styles and they the decor was just as beautiful. They brought the Brooklyn spring on the inside with fresh blooms in nature-colored vases and crisp white blossoms in rustic containers and twirled around on their chuppah. Striving to keep it simple but timeless, they certainly succeeded at this.

Anne was radiant in her Marchesa dress and she rocked it all night. I had a field day taking pictures of her in it; the details on the dress itself are amazing and she was a constant vision in it, from the moment she put it on to the last minutes of the reception. Jason was a man in love and a smile plastered on his face at all times. With his Paul Stuart suit, this dynamic duo complemented each other so well, looking like the classic bride and groom, and a husband and wife ready to embark on this awesome journey.
