Ohhhh… there’s something magical about a Brooklyn Bride. This wedding comes to us from the fabulous, fabulous photographer Cindy Johnson. (She photographed Rocco & Larah’s wedding in paradise) Her work is perfection. She captures details and moments that couples must be so happy to frame forever… This wedding is proof that when the weather doesn’t agree, something wonderful can come out of it! 

Love on West 4th St.

Hand in Hand...

From the bride… “Brooklyn is a very special place for us. I met my husband there at a bar in 2005. We also got engaged on the Brooklyn Promenade overlooking the Manhattan Skyline, and shared our first apartment there together. My mother’s family also hails from Brooklyn.  In fact, my maternal grandparents had their first date at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. So naturally we chose to get married at the River Café which is a beautiful restaurant in DUMBO located right under the Brooklyn Bridge. We got married on the deck outside the Terrace room with the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan as the backdrop.” 

 

Ceremony Laughs...

Love in Brooklyn...

Proof. That rain on your wedding day can look be beautiful and magical.

Proof

From the bride… “Our wedding was very small so we tried to personalize it as much as possible. We wrote our own vows, personal messages to each other, and most of the ceremony.  My mother and I designed the Brooklyn themed table cards and our favors were chocolate cookies shaped like the Brooklyn Bridge.  A close family friend of ours who owns a flower and garden store in Connecticut did our flowers, and a close friend of mine, accompanied by a guitarist sang our first dance song and during the ceremony. ”

Reception Decor

From the bride… “We had decent weather for the outdoor ceremony but then there were torrential downpours for the rest of the day.  At first I was sad because our outdoor photo shoot around DUMBO was canceled. However, the rain turned out to be the best thing that could have happened to us because we had the idea to take pictures in the subway instead.  It was very wet and kind of a mess but we had a blast. People taking the subway were so shocked to see us there.  They thought we were shooting for a magazine or something. We were laughing the entire time and have received so many compliments on the pictures.”

Heading Uptown...

From the bride on her photographer… “Our photographer, Cindy Johnson was so terrific for agreeing to brave the rain-drenched subway with us. She was so energetic and fun to have around and the pictures came out beautifully. ”
