The Brooklyn Wedding of Alexis & Mike

The Liberty Warehouse wedding that Alexis & Mike had last Fall was simply a BLAST! They started their wedding day with some amazing moments and details, and they wrapped up the evening with lots of dance partying with all of their family and friends. It’s always so hard to narrow down a whole wedding into a single blog post, and this one felt especially tough. There can be a lot of things that go into making really great wedding photos but the most important is to just have a great day. Alexis & Mike blew that out of the water and we spent the entire day documenting all of the fun and excitement that was happening around us. This is how you have a wedding!

Alexis spent her time getting ready at her parent’s home in Bay Ridge, which is also the home that her grandmother lived in. The entire getting ready process had this amazing personal energy about it, but what really got me was the few minutes we spent taking a few key photos in her grandmother’s old bedroom. The photo you see Alexis holding is actually her grandmother getting ready on her wedding day in that exact corner where Alexis is standing!

I loved their first look in Cobble Hill Park! This was along the way from where Alexis got ready to Liberty Warehouse, and it was the perfect little neighborhood park to use for such an intimate moment. It was right before Halloween, so we also had this funny paper mache skeleton head watching on!

love it when couples hire out Peter from FilmCars to ride in one of his classic Checker cabs. Besides providing us with transportation for the day, we obviously can use it to take fun and unique couples portraits and detail photos.

We popped by Brooklyn Farmacy on the drive over to the wedding venue because…why not?! A quick milkshake at a favorite spot was a great way to carve out a little more personal time for Alexis & Mike to spend with each other before joining up with all of their guests.

We spent a little time capturing some fun and personal photos of Alexis & Mike with their wedding crew. Selecting friends and family to be in your wedding party is no frivolous choice, so we always make sure the bride and groom have some time to spend with those they’ve honored with this role. After that we got everyone inside for the ceremony and reception, and it was all candid coverage from there!

How amazing is this energy that Alexis & Mike burst onto the dance floor with? I love it when couples get right down the partying with their guests, and 74 Events had a great DJ setting the pace that carried on into the night.

A quick break was taken for the groom’s grandmother to play a tune for the couple on the piano, and then a very sweet and heartfelt trio of speeches was given by the father of the bride, the groom’s brother and best man, and the bride’s sister and maid of honor. The rest of the evening was wrapped up with more partying and a quick cake cutting to toast the newlyweds!
