From the Bride…When we planned our wedding we wanted it to feel like us. The Foundry was the first and last venue we looked at! It had the perfect balance of an Industrial and garden-like space with the ivy covered exposed brick. In the summer the space transforms into a magical oasis overlooking the city.

We opted for an intimate ceremony in the green house followed by a cocktail hour with all our friends and family. Since we are both foodies the meal was such an important aspect of the night. There was a huge emphasis on local, simple food that felt like home cooking. Dinner was served family style under the bridge overlooking the Manhattan Skyline. It was a perfect summer night that allowed for the tent lining to be taken down and we could be immersed in the urban garden. The dinner setting was whimsical in every sense. The Foundry already had so much lush greenery and we emphasized it with beautiful, wild flowers arrangements that made the entire space feel both rustic and chic. It felt like a summer garden party with pops of pale pink, blue and gold.

For the cocktails we choose a sweet pink mix of grapefruit, elderflower with a shot of fresh beet juice called Drop the Beet as well as Back that Hass Up, a spicy creamy combo made with avocado. For our dessert bar we were inspired by our favorite sweets from trips we had taken together. The Nutella from our breakfast spreads in Turkey, macaroons from Paris, chocolate chip cookies from when we got engaged in Maine. We chose a hazelnut cake with layers of Nutella and salted caramel butter cream as well as a vanilla cake with lemon butter cream and cream cheese frosting. We also had a cookie bar with cookies shots filled with vanilla milk. Flourless chocolate pecan cookies and assorted pastel macaroons.

We wanted everything to feel natural and not overdone. The ceremony, dinner, dessert, the space and the way I wanted myself to look. My dress was a beautiful Vera Wang that I didn’t want to overpower. I had my hair pulled back in a simple bun, natural and soft makeup and no jewelry but our new wedding bands. The bridesmaids and groomsmen played perfectly off of each other and the space in rose hued gowns and blue suits.

The excitement of the night made it go by so quickly. After the speeches were given and the meal was served, we all danced the night away inside. One of the most memorable parts of the night was seeing how happy my husband was and dancing with all of our friends and family. It was a perfect evening that we will never forget.

From Rebecca Yale PhotographyDina and Dustin were married on a beautiful Fall day at Brooklyn’s 501 Union. The bride and groom were surrounded by their friends and family, and their adorable fur-baby, Mochi, who walked down the aisle with the groom. The couple began their morning getting ready at the Ritz Carlton in Battery Park City where they did a romantic first look in a garden just the two of them before heading over to Jane’s Carousel in DUMBO for portraits. The couple had a traditional Chinese tea ceremony in private with their parents and the bride’s grandmother, followed by the ceremony officiated by a friend set against a backdrop installation of green, white and gold foliage and roses created by Ahn Designs. After the ceremony guests enjoyed cocktails and appetizers at the bar before a family style dinner at long banquet tables in the dining room followed by an evening of dancing the night away!

From the Bride…After a year and a half of long distance dating, Dustin and I got engaged and the countdown towards ending our separation across country began. It was decided that following the wedding, I’d relocate to Dallas. Dustin knew that moving was a big decision for me as I had lived in Brooklyn my entire life – and how hard it is to leave New York City, a place like no other. To honor that, we decided our wedding would take place in Brooklyn so that I could say goodbye.

501 Union came across my Instagram feed right before Dustin proposed. It was the first venue I reached out to as it definitely fit the look we were going for: industrial with a bit of history and a modern vibe. 501 Union was our first stop and it ended up being the only venue we looked at because Dustin said, “I can see myself marrying you here.” I wanted to roll my eyes and say that there were still other appointments. Even though I thought we should look at more places, I felt the same. It was decided then 501 Union would be the place we’d say I do.

Autumn is my favorite time of year in NYC. We chose a date in early October, which was deemed auspicious in the lunar calendar by my traditional Chinese family. As a self-proclaimed non-girly girl who tends to prefer dark monochromatic colors, we went with navy, grey, ivory, and gold for our industrial chic theme.

After checking venue off the list, we began building our D+D wedding dream team! The first member to join was the effervescent Rebecca Yale, who we both fangirl’d over after our first meeting. It was not just over her portfolio, but how at ease we both felt with her. Over the next year, Rebecca was a rainbow of a person to correspond with, and I am grateful to have built a friendship with her in that time. Dustin and I couldn’t have been more blessed to have her document one of the biggest days of our lives.

That set the tone with all the other wonderful vendors we’d come to find, and we were beyond lucky and privileged to have them be a part of our wedding day. I’d like to thank all the amazing ladies (and a few gentlemen) that Dustin and I interacted with during our wedding planning that helped make our wedding day so memorable.

Special thanks to Caroline and Holly (aka 14 carat) of Fig and Pig for answering our millions of emails; Ashley Chamblin for being an absolute coordination boss bae; Victoria and the DBA team for dealing with a bride who was very particular with flower colors; and lastly, Jennifer at 501 Union for being our wedding guardian angel. As a bride who never ended up making a Pinterest board and had the added difficulty of planning a wedding during a long distance engagement, I couldn’t have done it without you BAE-yonces. Thank you for helping create the wedding of my dreams and giving me the ultimate goodbye to Brooklyn. For it is said, by Notorious B.I.G, to “Spread love, it’s the Brooklyn way,” and it was a magical night where we were able to share our love with family and friends in Brooklyn.
