Wedding Crashers – Brooklyn Wedding Fair

For the second year in a row I participated in a Brooklyn Based wedding fair called Wedding Crashers. Before my first fair last year I had never done one..they all sounded a bit cheesy and I just didn’t like the idea of being in a Marriott trying to meet potential clients..but when I heard about this one at the Park Slope Bell House and who some of the other vendors were, I wanted in! Last year I gave a speech on what to look for in a wedding photographer this year I focused more on staying in my booth and meeting some awesome couples with amazing sounding weddings around Brooklyn and beyond.

A few of my favorite vendors that were there:

Naturally Delicious – I’ve been lucky enough to photograph a few weddings where

Nine Cakes – beautiful looking and tasting wedding cakes / cupcakes

The Ketubah – I took a few nice photos of their Ketubahs which are among the nicest I’ve ever seen.

One Girl Cookies – yum yum.. just did a wedding of theirs at the Metropolitan building and their desserts were beautiful

The Engagements – Kick Ass Wedding Band

Rock Paper Scissors Events – wonderful wedding decoration/planning

Root Stock and Quade – beautiful stuff

Tammy Golson Events – a great New York City wedding planner

Lion in the Sun – they make lovely invitations and thank you cards

I took a few photos before the show really got started..

 

Beautiful Brooklyn Wedding – Dorick and Lauren

This was the summer of cool Brooklyn Weddings for me, and a perfect example of this was the awesome Brooklyn couple Dorick and Lauren. How could you go wrong with this wedding having your rehearsal dinner at Frankies 457 and then your reception the following day in DUMBO at Superfine. I love my Brooklyn weddings and this one was awesome.

There were musical performances by several talented family members (including the bride singing a beautiful song!) and basically just a long day of good looking people drinking specialty cocktails, enjoying local desserts and partying till late into the evening. You know a couple is going to be cool when they tell you that they’re going to Iceland for their honeymoon..I really liked that.

Dorick and Lauren had a small ceremony at city hall the day before their wedding and then they hired me to capture the rehearsal dinner and reception the following day. We made sure to get some awesome shots of the two of them over the course of the weekend, getting some of my best Brooklyn wedding photos to date.
