Brooklyn backyard wedding: Jess + Jeff

October 25, 2012
industrial Brooklyn wedding

A beer garden in Greenpoint, Brooklyn turned reception area, a crew of talented friends lending a hand, and as Brooke of Brookelyn Photography points out, quite possibly the most epic photobooth backdrop ever (it’s massive we tell ya). It all came together to make for one rad wedding. And when we say they had a crew of talented friends contributing, they really did. Jess will explain exactly how in a sec, but wow, this was definitely a labor of love.

From Jess: Let other people share responsibility and involve your friends as much as possible– our friend and designer, Chris Taylor, made a lot of the choices about flowers and decorations. It felt good to trust other people to make decisions. Our friend Lauren offered to make our wedding cake– not only was it beautiful and incredibly delicious, it was unforgettable, and meant so much more because we knew who baked it and how much work it was. Our friend Dan played mandolin during the ceremony and we would never have found our venue without our friend Ryan, who tended bar there. We enlisted our friend Nicole as our event coordinator– she kept us on schedule and sane. Our friend Tyler got ordained and performed the ceremony, and I can’t overstate how incredible it was to have someone we love stand up with us and make everything official. When we remember the wedding, we remember all of these people– and the whole wedding party hanging pennant flags– which is exactly the way we want to remember it.

Congratulations J + J!
