Kristen & Jamie's Brooklyn Wedding

When a couple approach me and say they're going to have an intimate Brooklyn wedding, I'm immediately excited and all over it. Living here makes it personal and special, there's just something old world and romantic about the borough! 

Kristen & Jamie chose Frankie's 457 in Carroll Gardens, which if you haven't been it's a must! Tuscan Italian fare in a rustic, lush backyard is not to be missed. It's her favorite restaurant and a top date night for these two, so naturally they wanted to be married there. They prepped at the Ritz Carlton downtown with their friends and family before heading over on their trolley to Dumbo for photos! By the time we were done, Frankie's was full of an intimate crowd of their family and close friends, ready to see them down the aisle. After the sweet ceremony, everyone enjoyed a long night of cocktails, a serenade by his sweet niece, delicious food, speeches and sparklers! The after party continued at the Building on Bond just up the road into the night with a great dance party.
