Although we are more than partial to outdoor mountain weddings in Montana, and we do also relish the chance to be a part of gorgeous events elsewhere on the planet. Most recently, we had the total pleasure of traveling to Brooklyn, New York, to coordinate (and attend!) a wedding at The Green Building.
The Green Building, we found, is a kind of urban-ex-brass-foundry version of our Montana wedding venue. (Bear with me: it’s true.) Like us, they allow couples to work with the vendors of their choice, favoring flexibility and customization. Like us, they provide a kind of lovely blank canvas — original brick walls and exposed beam ceilings in place of our tree-lined meadows and classic white tent — upon which each couple can project their unique style and vision. It was a stunning space with a sweet, helpful staff, and we felt right at home.
The couple we celebrated that day has a novel-worthy story (which you can read about in the Vows section of the New York Times, and which you can watch a short film about at The Forward), and their story showed up in so many of the wedding’s very personal details.
We were thrilled to work with a whole host of exceptional vendors on this wedding, including Brooke Fitts of Brookelyn Photography, who can be thanked for these lovely sneak-peek photos, and Betty Brooklyn Catering Co., who blew us away with their super-friendly staff and (of course) delicious food. Two very smart people behind The Literary Man provided pitch-perfect dance music and a playful photo booth. The bride’s girlfriends fetched buckets-full of anemones and ranunculus and bells of ireland at the market for the fresh-picked centerpieces. Candles and chandeliers and string lights warmed up the space.
We adored every second of this wedding, and we were honored to be there among so many loving and happy people. Eating such ridiculously delicious chocolates made by the mother of the groom. Toasting two people who deserve all of the good things in the world. xo
