Brooklyn Wedding at 501 Union – Siobhan + Bryan {NYC Wedding Photographer}

Wedding at 501 Union Brooklyn NYC, Kamila Harris Photography, Elegant Events by Laura, Laura Grusky

Siobhan and Bryan’s ceremony started with a brief meditation by their Buddhist officiant and friend, Katie Hess. Everyone was encouraged to close their eyes, closely pay attention to the way the warm air feels on their skin, listen to the sounds, breathe deeply, think about someone they love, and then direct that love towards the couple about to get married. It was absolutely beautiful, and set the tone for the whole day.

Seeing the love between these two, and the love mirrored by their friends and family, was so inspiring and I pretty much could not stop smiling the whole day, starting when the sun came out and we got to take some fun outdoor photos on a day where I was sure we would need umbrellas!

It was such an amazing wedding and I got to work with some of my favorite wedding professionals – the lovely Laura and Kelly from Elegant Events by Laura (who also did all of the beautiful florals!), as well as Sean from 74 Events, and Amanda from Purslane Catering – and I cannot say enough about the beautiful 501 Union – definitely a dream venue – and everyone just worked together seamlessly and everything was absolutely perfect.

When I first met Siobhan, she expressed how she and Bryan really wanted a very chill, laid back and fun day and I think they got exactly what they wanted.

I’ll close out with a poem that was read at their ceremony:

“Prayer for a Marriage,” by Steve Scafidi

When we are old one night and the moon
arcs over the house like an antique
China saucer and the teacup sun

follows somewhere far behind
I hope the stars deepen to a shine
so bright you could read by it

if you liked and the sadness
we will have known go away
for awhile – in this hour or two

before sleep – and that we kiss
standing in the kitchen not fighting
gravity so much as embodying

its sweet force, and I hope we kiss
like we do today knowing so much
good is said in this primitive tongue

from the wild first surprising ones
to the lower dizzy ten thousand
infinitely slower ones—and I hope

while we stand there in the kitchen
making tea and kissing, the whistle
of the teapot wakes the neighbors.
