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!
