Modern Wedding at Celestine - Katelin & Nicolas - Brooklyn

Updated: Feb 18, 2021

During my very first conversation with Nico and Katy, I already knew that

I was going to love working with them. They both had plenty of ideas about how

they wanted things to go on their big day, but wanted to hear my ideas too. I felt that

we were really going to be able to collaborate with each other to make their

wedding beautiful, stress-free and memorable, and we definitely did!

When I found out they were getting married at Celestine, I spent about an

hour on my phone drooling over photos of this hidden gem in Dumbo. Boasting

views of the Manhattan Bridge and the downtown Manhattan skyline, this place is

made for taking photos; in fact the whole neighborhood is! Hunting for locations

before the wedding, I really started to get excited.

At a short distance from Celestine, the soccer fields where Katy and Nico

met playing in an amateur league would be our starting point for their first look. They hadn't planned on doing one but luckily for all of us, they were open to

suggestions and the final product blew us away. While you might not expect a soccer

field to be the most photogenic location, this is Brooklyn Bridge Park we're talking

about. Every last inch of it is impeccably landscaped and it has some of the most

famous views in NYC: the Manhattan skyline, the Brooklyn Bridge, and the

Manhattan Bridge. For me it was a joy to frame their family portraits, especially with

Nicolas's family who travelled all the way from Europe to be there, against such

iconic scenery.

The most unforgettable part of the day, obviously, was the ceremony and

reception. With the support and love of family and friends, they said, "I

do," and started their new life together in the city, and really almost in the very same

park, where they met. The layout and ambiance of Celestine proved ideal for a

summer wedding in New York. There is ample indoor and outdoor space that blend

seamlessly into one another, all decorated with a timeless elegance that you have to

see in person to fully appreciate. Nico and Katy's guests enjoyed a modern

gourmet menu followed by dancing under the lights of the City of Dreams to the

sounds of Beats, Times, and Life.
