Wythe Hotel Wedding PhotosI used to live in Williamsburg - sort of. The summer between my junior and senior years in college I was an intern for the Roundabout Theatre Company in New York and I spent a lot of time in the Williamsburg neighborhood. When I moved back to New York in 2008, I first looked to live in Williamsburg, as it was an area I knew well. While I ended up in another neighborhood on the other side of Brooklyn I kept meaning to go back and revisit my old stomping grounds, but somehow the years went by and I never made my way back. In 2014, six years after moving to Brooklyn, I found myself right back in Williamsburg for this gorgeous Wythe Hotel wedding. The bride and groom both got ready in this old factory-turned-hotel. Their spirits stayed bright despite the terrible gloomy clouds and rain that simply wouldn't stop falling. The couple rented a vintage New York taxicab to drive them from the Wythe to their ceremony and reception at Giando’s on the Water. I love this image of the bride getting out of the taxi. I love that the image captures the grace in her movement and juxtaposes it nicely against the dreary rain on the side of the cab. I also love the pure white luxury of her dress against the gritty city cobblestones!
