You’d be hard pressed to find a love story sweeter than this. What started as neighbors in Brooklyn for six years ended in an eventual date, proposal and wedding set in the very same neighborhood where it all began. Think classic elegance meets urban charm, with Gabrielle Aronas’ beautiful florals, Stacie Ford’s flawless makeup and Katie Osgood working magic behind the lens. More right here.
From The Bride…For years Greg was just the boy who lived below me. We passed one another in the hallway of our Brooklyn brownstone hundreds of times and after 6 years decided we should be friends. We soon became inseparable and what started out as friendship quickly developed into so much more. We fell in love over Thursday night drinks, Sunday dinners and countless Yankee games and after 2 ½ years of dating Greg proposed to me at Brooklyn Bridge Park.
Greg and I quickly jumped right into wedding planning. We met, fell in love, and got engaged in Brooklyn – so it just felt right to get married in Brooklyn too. After going back and forth on the size of the wedding we ultimately decided on 80 of our closest friends and family. We hoped that number was small enough to feel intimate yet large enough to feel festive. We visited several venues but after seeing Brooklyn Winery we immediately knew it was perfect for us.
Planning a wedding can easily become very stressful. Fortunately we worked with wonderful vendors who alleviated much of that stress. Rachel and Jessica at Brooklyn Winery were a godsend. They were so patient and always happy to answer our many questions. Our florist (Gabrielle Aronas) was an absolute joy to work with and her flowers and tablescapes created a beautiful and welcoming atmosphere. My makeup (Stacie Ford) and hair (Ramona Azcona) far exceeded my expectations. I have never felt more beautiful and I will always be grateful to them for their warmth and professionalism. And finally, hiring Katie Osgood as our photographer was quite possibly the best wedding decision we made. She is an incredible talent who captured our special day so beautifully. And as an added bonus she is super fun too! Many, many thanks to all of the wonderful people we were lucky enough to work with.
After 6 months of exhaustive planning, our wedding day finally arrived on April 18th, 2014. It was everything we had hoped for – a day filled with immense love and happiness. We are so thankful for the limitless support and devotion of our families. We loved celebrating with them and will cherish our many memories for a lifetime.
