Kaitlyn & Luke - Celestine Brooklyn Wedding

Stunning views of the New York City skyline served as the backdrop of Luke and Kaitlyn’s wedding celebrations and the energy of the day was on a track to outshine the twinkling lights of the city’s nightscape. The couple prepared for the day at One Hotel in Brooklyn and then had their first look filled with gorgeous, silly, and love-filled moments on the hotel’s roof. Surrounded by the city, the East River, and their friends and family, all the magic and love was felt.

We migrated from an outdoor view to an indoor view for the couple’s nighttime wedding ceremony at Celestine—one of their favorite restaurants. The venue was cozy and intimate, even as the hubbub of the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges burbled below our feet. Giant glass windows on all sides of the restaurant gave the impression that the party was floating on a huge cloud and photos of the ceremony featured plenty of cameos from the New York City skyline.

After Kaitlyn and Luke kicked off the ceremony by toasting adorable cupcakes, there were many smiles and happy tears in the room as people came up to the microphone to give their blessings. Luke and Kaitlyn then read their vows to each other as many more happy tears continued to fall around the room.

As the reception continued later into the night, there was an abundance of laughter, hugs, and beautiful food to fill the room. Family and friends of the couple further regaled us with stories that ranged from sweet and tender to almost scathingly hilarious. With savory bites to fuel the night, people convened on the dance floor to celebrate and enjoy time with their loved ones. A magnificent party set on a magnificent city skyline—Luke and Kaitlyn’s wedding was so beautiful and fun! Congratulations to the happy couple!
