Kristen & Andrew

From the first time we met Kristen to her final fitting, she exuded such a level of tastefulness. Her intimate Brooklyn wedding is full of special meaning for the couple and unique history of the city. She is perfectly styled in HB6979, looking elegant, refined and truly stunning. We have absolutely loved getting to know Kristen and now getting to read about all that went into her special day with Andrew. Thank you much to Emma Kepley for sharing such incredible images with us!

Saja: How did you meet?

Andrew and I were set up by a mutual friend. We arranged what we thought would be a quick coffee date in the West Village, but ended up staying for hours just talking, getting to know each other, and letting the day go by. It was an instant connection.

Saja: How did he propose?

He proposed a couple blocks from our apartment in Brooklyn Heights on a quiet side street. We often go on long walks around our neighborhood, and he definitely surprised me on this one.

Saja: Where did the wedding take place? Why did you choose there?

Our ceremony took place in the Othmer Library at the Brooklyn Historical Society, which, like the spot where he proposed, is only a couple blocks from our apartment. We chose the space not only because it’s gorgeous and intimate, but also because we felt strongly about making the whole day feel personal to us. The Brooklyn Historical Society embodied that sentiment perfectly.

Saja: What was your favorite part of the day?

My favorite part of the day was reading our personal vows to each other. We chose to do this privately before the ceremony, and it was quite arguably the most emotional and love-filled moment of my life thus far.

Saja: Is there anything you can point out about your pictures that we might not have noticed?

The room where we said our private vows holds some incredible pieces of Brooklyn Historical Society's permanent collection: paintings of Brooklyn dating back many eras as well as a rare map (there are only four left in existence!) of New York made in 1770 by Bernard Ratzer.

Saja: Which of the photos is your favorite? Why?

My favorite photo is the one of us standing at our food truck. It captures such a genuine moment. We were both really nervous about the day running smoothly, and this was the moment we could finally relax, eat, and dance the night away!
