From Christine's first email to me: "Damon introduced me to Green-Wood on our second date. I think I knew he was a keeper at that point - an eccentric Victorian gentleman wanting to take his scholarly lady on a cemetery stroll. We love its rich history and gothic Victorian beauty."
"Eccentric" and "Victorian" perfectly describe this Green-Wood Cemetery wedding. The entire property is gorgeous and quiet, and walking around is an interesting look into Brooklyn history. I loved incorporating the gravestones into their wedding photos!
After their ceremony in the chapel, guests were treated to a ride on the trolley while the space was converted into a reception space and I took the newlyweds around the ground for photos. They celebrated with a casual luncheon and cupcakes from one of my favorite Brooklyn bakers, Baked.
One of my favorite elements of the day was their attire. The Victorian touches continued with his classic suit and pocket watch.
"It's my favorite from my collection," he told me.
Yes, Christine, any gentleman with a pocket watch collection is definitely a keeper.
Her two-tone lace dress, made by her mom, and dainty parasol completed their fantastic Victorian look.
One of the most fun elements of their wedding were the English crackers they made as wedding favors. In one of my favorite candids from this wedding, I photographed one of the youngest and one of the oldest guests getting ready to pop one open!
