Brittany and Anthony were married on a brisk October day in Brooklyn, NY. For them, finding a place that represented them as a couple in the city that the lived and loved was just as important as being surrounded by their many loved ones. Which is why they chose the rustic and cool Greenpoint Loft, and transformed it to fit their wedding vision. With their large wedding party, these two are a couple after my own heart. One of the first things we talked about when we met prior to their wedding was how much their wedding party meant to them. The people who would be standing beside them were a mix of family and lifelong friends that they deeply loved and treasured. They wanted to make sure each bridesmaid and groomsman felt extra special that day, and that notion just warmed my heart. And between the tearful exchange of the father-of-the-bride’s first look and the ceremony which was officiated by the father-of-the groom, their abundant love for their family was clear. But nothing was quite as moving as the relationship Brittany had with her late grandmother. Their bond was as tight as a mother and daughter’s ever since Britt was a little girl. All of her best friends (now her bridesmaids) had known and loved her throughout the years. When the girls would play dress-up, Britt would always be the one who wore her grandmother’s fabulous robe. Fittingly, this robe would be the one Brittany would were on the morning of her wedding. While I shed many-a-tear throughout the day, I was completely reduced to a puddle when I approached the second floor during the reception and noticed that someone had unintentionally hung the robe in front of a perfect spotlight. It was a very ethereal and emotional moment for me, a mere onlooker, and I couldn’t wait to photograph this moment and time and deliver it to the happy couple.
Brittany and Anthony, I hope you always feel the love that surrounded you on your wedding day! Happy Anniversary!
