When you’ve got a bride who’s an urban farmer, there’s essentially no venue more ideal for wedding festivities than a rooftop garden. Luckily bride Alia just so happens to work at Brooklyn Grange, a site which provided the perfect backdrop for a celebration with beau Ian and their closest friends and family. Thank you Brookelyn Photography for capturing it all!
From the photographer, Brooke of Brookelyn Photography: The Brooklyn Grange has got to be one of NYC’s most jaw dropping + unique venues. A full-time working rooftop urban farm with 380 degrees views of both the Manhattan skyline + Brooklyn + Queens. Although magical at any time of day, when the sun starts setting on the city guests can enjoy cocktail hour with quite possibly NYC’s best skyline views. Ian’s a photographer + Alia works on the farm, so I felt especially honored with the job of documenting their special celebration.
Guests stood in-between rows of produce to watch them exchange their vows… + of course an epic meal followed with King Salmon that Ian’s dad caught in Alaska + most of the salads + veggies coming right from the farm itself. Doesn’t get fresher than that! As an activity for the kids, one of the grange’s farmers gave them an educational farm tour including a visit to the chicken coop + an explanation of the rooftops beekeeping operation + beehives. Custom made seed packets and vegetables made for gorgeous + sustainable table settings. It was a one of a kind celebration that was perfectly executed and perfectly them.
