Since its still feeling a bit summery here in Brooklyn, it makes sense to show off this beautiful wedding with a super chic couple, stylish bridal party, and an amazing ceremony location of the waterfront.

From the bride:

From the start, Dan and I knew we wanted a wedding that captured us, no matter how many classic traditions we had to break to achieve it.  We wanted to keep it an intimate affair with a relaxed, romantic and fun vibe. We envisioned a big party that just happened to be celebrating our love for one another.
Dan and I went to high school together, but this isn’t a high school sweetheart love story.  We went through four years of school with mutual friends but never really met or spoke.  It wasn’t until we came home from college for a friend’s party that we reconnected and I knew I was going to marry this man.  It took seven years, but once he finally got down on one knee and popped the question I didn’t have to think twice before saying yes.
Almost immediately after saying yes, I had appointments to look at venues. We looked at a few “banquet hall” type of venues and quickly decided that those didn’t really represent us.  In came Galapagos Art Space, a cultural arts venue located in Dumbo, Brooklyn which features island seating on a 1,600 square foot lake. The venue has a romantic yet industrial and relaxed vibe and from the second we stepped in we knew this was the place.  Not to mention Dumbo is, in my opinion, one of the most romantic neighborhoods in New York with its cobble stone streets, views of the Manhattan skyline and the beautiful Brooklyn Bridge Park (which we decided to hold our ceremony in).  We couldn’t have made up a more perfect setting to celebrate our love!
Silver Arrow Band did an amazing job capturing us through music (we are a big music couple) and I don’t think there was a second that the stage was empty!  Danielle from Danielle Robinson Photography and Chris from Mint Cinematography captured every second so perfectly that I have been looking at the photos and videos on repeat since the wedding.
It was a day we will never forget and we are so impressed with everyone involved for making the day as perfect as we could have ever imagined that we wanted to submit the wedding to different blogs to make sure every vendor could get the credit they deserved! Not to mention, we have an incredible group of family and friends that just reinforced how lucky we were to be marrying into such great company.
It was truly a magical day that I don’t think we will ever be able to top (but we certainly will try!)

From the bride:

Erin and Brad wanted to find a space that reflected their personality and style and would allow for the wedding and reception to be held in the same location. 501 Union was the perfect venue; it was only a few miles from their apartment and it had an industrial but polished, chic aesthetic. The space was quintessentially “Brooklyn” and with its location, it gave them the opportunity to show their friends and out of town guests the vibe of their neighborhood and lives in NYC.

The couple began their day in the bridal and groom suites at the New York Marriott at Brooklyn Bridge. They headed over to Brooklyn Bridge Park for first reveal and photos their families and the wedding party. The ceremony was held at dusk in the venue’s garden area which provided an airy outdoor ambiance. For the cocktail hour, the guests moved into the lounge for drinks and stepped outside to enjoy tasty bites from Tribeca Tacos food truck. Brad and Erin took photos  on the Union Street bridge over the Gowanus Canal and then headed back to enjoy food and drinks with the guests. Following cocktail hour, dinner was held in the gallery space. Once the wedding formalities were over, the party really kicked off. With awesome music, an instant photo booth and lively guests, the wedding became a celebration to remember.

Thanks to their wedding team, friends and families, Erin and Brad had the awesome day that they hoped for!!
