One of the first details I knew about Thomasin & Alex’s wedding was the reception was to be held at The Knitting Factory, a Brooklyn concert venue, and I just knew I had to be part of something so cool. Both the bride and groom are musically gifted; choosing a venue that reflects them so well is just the kind of thing that makes my couples so unique.
It was an unseasonably warm day in October, filled with so much sunshine and even more love. We started out with portraits in Brooklyn Bridge Park before trolleying over to the gorgeous Plymouth Church. The lovely ceremony included both the bride’s minister parents giving special readings, and a very memorable performance by Cantori New York, a choir the bride is a member of, accompanied by the majestic Aeolian-Skinner organ.
Once arriving to The Knitting Factory, there were almost as many musical acts as there were wedding guests! It was so important to the bride and groom to showcase their talented friends and to have every room filled with music and laughter. My personal favorite performance of the night was when the bride and groom snuck away for a quick costume change for a duet of “Happy Together” by The Turtles. It was the perfect way to kick off the party!
Congratulations Thomasin & Alex!
