501 Union Wedding Photos with Whimsy Weddings

They day before Michelle and Dejan's wedding at 501 Union in Brooklyn, it down poured in New York City. However, on their wedding day, the rain held off, sun came out and as soon as their wedding ceremony was over, the skies opened up and showered Brooklyn again. Phew, we just made it! Michelle and her bridesmaids got ready at the ever chic Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It is one of my favorite hotels for bridal prep because the light, the location and the decor all make for spectacular getting ready photos. The bride wore a delicate lace wedding gown from Monique Lhuillier and blush satin Jimmy Choo shoes.

The Groom got ready with his best man at the couples apartment in Manhattan before meeting us at the hotel. The couple shared their first look by The William Vale hotel, before we headed over to Prospect Park for more wedding photos. The couple hired the amazing team of  Whimsy Weddings to be their wedding planner, coordinator and floral designer. The entire wedding was simply gorgeous! Inside 501 Union, Michelle and Dejan stood under a Chuppah made of gorgeous pink cherry blossoms as they said their vows and became husband and wife. Their dog Nico even made a guest appearance as he walked down the aisle with one of Michelle's bridesmaids - so cute!

The reception started off with a special performance during the couples first dance. The Groom's best man sang for the couple!! To celebrate Dejan's Serbian heritage, they hired a Balkan Brass Band to play after the hora. Everyone danced, laughed and threw money at the couple, wishing them a long and happy marriage! Michelle and Dejan are one of the kindest and funniest couples I've had the pleasure of getting to know. I'm so incredibly honored to have been there with them for their wonderful wedding day! xo
