It’s one of those stories you hear about from time to time but wonder, is that how it really happened? In this case, it sure did! These two met in the elevator of their apartment building and well, after a couple more run-ins… let’s just say the rest is history. But not before they kicked it all off with a spring celebration filled with cherry blossoms and sweetness. Brklyn View Photography captured it all – see their happily ever after right this way!
From Brklyn View Photography… The story of how Nadia and Tim met sounds like it’s the plot of your favorite romantic movie. They met in the elevator of their apartment building in Brooklyn. It was love at first sight and after a few weeks of bumping into each other, Tim finally asked Nadia out and the rest, they say, is history! The happy couple wanted to celebrate their wedding in the place where their love story began and Brooklyn was the only choice. They chose Maison May (formerly iCi Restaurant) in Fort Greene for it’s quaint location, gorgeous outside garden and of course, delicious food.
Nadia wore a stunning structured wedding dress and veil from Carol Hannah. She splurged on her blue studded Valentino shoes and wore her grandmother’s crystal vintage necklace and earrings for her something old and borrowed. Nadia’s bridesmaids each chose their own dresses. The only prerequisites were that they had to be blush and sparkly – so pretty! The bride and groom got ready separately at the Wythe Hotel before heading to the church in Manhattan. Tim was in awe of his blushing bride as she was escorted down the aisle by her Father and Step-Father. After their wedding ceremony, we headed back to Brooklyn to the breathtaking grounds of the Pratt Institute to take their bridal party portraits.
It was peak cherry blossom season in New York City and we took full advantage of the lush garden and fresh blooms. Guests arrived at Maison May and were treated to glasses of champagne in celebration of the nuptials. Custom table names were created by Laura Hooper Calligraphy that represented important Brooklyn streets and locations that were meaningful to the couple. Each place setting was set with a package of lavender shortbread as their wedding favors. The intimate space of Maison May was perfect for their small wedding. Guests dined al fresco outside in the garden under the string lights. Nadia and Tim’s wedding day was perfect from start to finish and I’m so happy that they asked me to be part of such a lovely celebration.
