A sneak peak of Alyssa, our stunning December bride, making her way around Greenpoint for her bridal photos. Amazing work by Angelica Glass Photography!
Vicky met Tony while vacationing in Antigua a few years ago, and what ensued was years of traveling back and forth to be together at every opportunity possible. Finally, they decided it was time to get married! Tony moved to Brooklyn this summer, and Vicky immediately went to work on their wedding. She truly wanted something simple and easy and I think the photos below will show you not only how well executed the mission was, but also how a truly simple affair can be absolutely fantastic! Their ceremony was held in Brooklyn Bridge Park, with a group of family and friends who traveled from all over the globe. After their very brief ceremony, the couple took off around DUMBO with their photographer while guests had drinks and appetizers in air conditioned comfort of reBar (it was 100 degrees that day!) The tables were accented with candles along with fresh flowers and herbs that Vicky purchased and potted. Dinner was served buffet style, and I only wish I had a photo that looked as good as the food tasted! Vicky and Tony supplied an iPod with playlists that covered everything from Prince to traditional music for Tony’s family to enjoy. Black Cake, a Caribbean traditional dessert, was served to all the guests and, since her wedding day was also her nephew’s birthday, Vicky supplied a special cupcake for him and she invited all the guests to sing ‘Happy Birthday’.
Guests were on the dance floor until the end of the night, and Vicky & Tony were thrilled with their day. I wish them the very best, and welcome to Brooklyn, Tony! -Anna

Marius and Eng Kian celebrated their marriage at The Boathouse in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park. On a perfect Fall evening, the couple hosted 150 of their closest family and friends, most of whom flew in from the couple’s native countries – Sweden and Malaysia! Family played a huge part in every aspect of their wedding. Eng Kian’s sister baked their cake and his family brought Malaysian sarongs all the way to NY to distribute to the guests as favors! Marius’ family dressed in traditional Swedish wedding attire and surprised him with Swedish wedding sweets! Even their dogs got in on the ceremony, acting as ring bearers. The couple is very involved in the arts, and in addition to a band and later a DJ for dancing, they had a full cabaret show during the reception! Their friends performed everything from show tunes to belly dancing to opera, and in between each performance, a speech was given. It was amazing, and despite language barriers, lots of moving parts and all these people meeting for the first time, the occasion was beyond joyous and beyond fun! Congrats and best wishes to you Marius and Eng Kian! -Anna Catering: Movable Feast Floral: Flowers by Daye, email@example.com Band: Thompson Kneeland & Pizzacato Jazz Photography: Byba Sepit, The Fornever Collective
After a week of rain and chill, we got a GORGEOUS day for Jenny & Peter's waterfront wedding! The couple took photos and exchanged vows at DUMBO's Pebble Beach, between the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges. Officiant Carissa Templeton worked with the couple to craft a meaningful ceremony, beginning with a ring warming ritual. The rings were passed through the crowd and guests were asked to "warm" them with a wish, blessing or thought for the happy couple. It was a great way to involve all the guests in the ceremony. After the ceremony we distributed walking maps to help guests find their way to reBar for the reception, where the wonderful staff provided drinks and dinner, and DJ Gaza kept it moving 'til midnight. Congrats, Jenny & Peter! -Rebecca
