Every time we return to NYC we get the overwhelming feeling of returning home. Brian & I met, (and first started dating), while living in Greenpoint over 10 years ago. Since then, we got engaged, moved back to Buffalo, got married, got jobs, bought a house, quit jobs, started a photography business, sold a house, went on a road trip across the US and had a baby. A lot has changed but, one constant is our attempt to visit Brooklyn, our home before home, whenever possible. This year it was Natalie & Dan’s wedding that brought us back. (We may be making another trip in the fall exclusively for engagement & family sessions so we’ll update our travel schedule & announce it as soon as we decide).
Natalie & Dan got married at The Green Building in NYC on a beautiful Thursday evening. (Yes! Thursday weddings are a thing!!). Brian photographed their wedding including their first look, intimate tea ceremony, marriage ceremony and reception all at the Green Building. In between events, they were able to sneak away for portraits along the Gowanus Canal. Natalie & Dan had a simple celebration of about 85 guests and a bridal party that consisted of their dearest friends. Natalie designed and hand-made her wedding dress which takes DIY to a whole new level. This girl is beyond talented and we were in awe of the intricate detail she sewed in. At the reception, Natalie and Dan brought in their personality to the wedding including some of their local favorites: Hometown Bar B Que for Food & Ample Hills Creamery for dessert. We could go on and on about how much we love this couple, their happiness, the close knit friendships that surrounded them, and their beautiful family that came from around the world to celebrate with them, but, for now we’ll leave you with their photos.
