Four and a half years ago they walked into a birthday party in Brooklyn for a man named Andrew. Kate went with a friend not knowing anyone but her, not even the birthday boy. Michael had come for the birthday boy. They ended up sitting next to each other, and once they started talking they didn’t stop until the end of the party. At that time, Kate had no idea this would be the man she would want to spend the rest of her life with.
Because they lived far apart, it took them a little while to find each other again, but when they did, Michael drove to Brooklyn nearly every weekend for two years! About a year ago they decided they needed more than just weekends and moved in together in the Hudson Valley, and Michael proposed soon after that.
And a few months ago, I met Kate at a French cafe in midtown called Macaron and we instantly bonded over coffee and delicious macarons! I was beyond excited when she told me she would love for me to photograph her Brooklyn wedding.
“Whenever anyone says New York, people automatically think of Manhattan. Not me, BROOKLYN is my heart and soul. So marrying the man I love in the city I love was a must.” Kate says,”Being that Brooklyn Bridge Park is one of my favorite spots I knew having the ceremony there would be perfect. After that all we wanted was a big party, and Gran Electrica was the place to have it. They have the best back yard in NYC, along with amazing food. People danced from the moment we arrived until they had to kick us out. It was a true celebration of love, friends and family.”
