When Elizabeth and Chaim began planning their wedding, it went without saying that Brooklyn would be the real star. From vendors to venue, it was important to them to include their favorite neighborhood spots as key players in the party. They enlisted the help of their neighbor Rebecca Shepherd for floral design, and knew they had to have their favorite ice cream shop (Ample Hills) take care of the cake.
Before the ceremony, the bride and groom chose the raw backdrop of Gowanus (where they currently reside) for their industrial-chic photoshoot. Photographer Robert Carlo worked wonders for their vision of vintage inspired details against a modern landscape. They then moved on to Deity which would be home to their ceremony, dinner, and dancing.
Deity was a no-brainer for the couple as they had fallen in love with its historic charm. With minimal personal touches including signage, letterpress printing and calligraphy by the bride, the space took on a characteristic that felt completely tailored to their elegance. The party concluded in Deity’s inviting cellar where guests enjoyed the cake cutting, moving and grooving, and an epic bouquet toss.
