Weddings are about celebrating the union of two people in love; Natalie and Kiley celebrated theirs with a grand party. The beautiful Dumbo Loft wedding took place in the heart of Dumbo, a small section of Brooklyn, meaning Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass.
In the late 1800s and the early 1900s, Dumbo was an industrial area and most of the factories were demolished in order to build the Manhattan Bridge. Yet, the building which is originally a factory, also known as the Dumbo Loft,remains.
The family and the friends of the brides spent the entire afternoon setting up the décor at the venue. They decorated the venue withholding the importance of personalized stationary. They worked very hard to transform the big day into something extraordinary and unforgettable for the two beautiful ladies. Later, all the family members and friends got ready in the nearby hotels.
At first, all the bridesmaids/groomsmen stood in the background in the streets of Dumbo. Gradually the anticipation increased as things were running a little behind schedule. Kiley waited in the streets for Natalie to emerge. I took some beautiful pictures of the couple before the ceremony and then went back inside.
Nicholas, Natalie’s brother officiated their Dumbo Loft wedding and the entire bridal party walked down the aisle. As the couple exchanged heartfelt vows, Kiley couldn’t stop her tears of joy. They exchanged the rings and kissed. After the ceremony, I took some amazing pictures of the newly-wed love-birds in the Main Street Park underneath the Manhattan Bridge, with the Brooklyn Bridge in the distance and beautiful sunset light in the background – the picture-perfect wedding photo for the picture-perfect couple.
The wedding party started with the first dance of Natalie and Kiley to At Last by Etta James, which was followed by Father/Daughter dances. The fathers, best man and the maid of honor gave their speeches and everyone enjoyed at the party. Truly, it was a celebration of love, and it moved us all.
