SUIT:KNOT STANDARD NYC
FLORAL:RED ROSE & LAVENDER
Rita and Joey’s ninth anniversary proved to be extra special, surrounded by family and friends at their Brooklyn Winery wedding.
The couple had wanted a day that was both laid-back and stylish, two qualities that were reflective of the bride and groom themselves. (Trust: between the bride’s ethereal beaded heels, to the wedding date secretly embroidered underneath the groom’s jacket collar, this couple knows style.) Trudging through Williamsburg for portraits in near-100% summer humidity, and still looking this good? Handled like true stars.
On top of it all, the day featured a little bit of everything I love to photograph. A stroll down 11th St. in Williamsburg provided a boon of industrial backdrops, showcasing a little Brooklyn street grit. The vertical greenery and lush florals at Brooklyn Winery provided a contrasting romantic vibe, complemented by the reclaimed wood accents and homey vintage dinner china. Then the reception — my personal favorite part of the night. A mix of salsa and hip-hop classics got everyone’s butt out of their seats, and you could just feel the good vibes emanating in the room.
A good night? Yeah, I’d say so.
