A 70’s Tropical-Inspired Wedding at 501 Union in Brooklyn

bLOG CATEGORIEs + Search

501 Union was a no-brainer decision for Chloe and Craig when choosing a venue for their wedding in Brooklyn. The vibe of the space reminded them of their first dates at cocktail bars across New York City. Located in Gowanus, the space is a hidden gem with its art deco industrial style. It felt like the space was made for them. It was easy to access for guests from out-of-town while still having that quintessential “only in New York feel.”

Their inspiration for the wedding was a 1920’s art deco feel with some Great Gatsby vibes thrown in. The tropical flowers by Alma Floral welcomed guests with color at the end of a long grey winter. The food was served family style by Fig & Pig to create a communal feel, while their best friends and loved ones gave a series of incredible toasts.

The idea of the wedding was to reflect “us” – how Chloe and Craig like to spend Friday nights making good food and listening to Billie Holiday and making cocktails. And they translated that amazingly to the wedding!

BEHIND THE LENS

ABOUT Katherine

Born to a Cuban architect and an American history buff, I was raised with a passion for storytelling and an eye for the little details. 

I received my BA from Tufts University and was lucky enough to train in long-form narrative photojournalism under World Press Photo Chairman Gary Knight. While based in Rome working for the United Nations, I was hit by a car on my way home from work — what I call my “Regina George” moment.
