It’s not often that I get to shoot small intimate weddings, so I was extremely excited to photograph Shayra + Stewart’s wedding in Brooklyn. Their goal was really just to have a small wedding with their nearest and dearest, and they did just that. Their guest list was about 40 people total, so they decided to go to an amazing restaurant for their ceremony and reception. We started off the day with the bride getting ready with just her sister at the Henry Normal Hotel, which if you’ve never been you should definitely check out. It was such a cool little boutique hotel and I loved it. Then we went over to their ceremony and reception site Frankies 457 Spuntino, and there are no words for the amazingness of their food. Their atmosphere is perfect too. It’s super rustic and they have this amazing outdoor space for intimate events. When you want to the back it’s almost like you’re entering a secret garden, so you really feel like you’re in your own world. And to end the night they had one of the best cakes I’ve ever had in my life from Milk Bar. I wanted to steal the entire thing and run away with it! But I did not. I maybe just stole a piece… or two. Thank you so much for inviting me in to your special day you guys!!
