As a wedding photographer, we have years of experience shooting various locations and venues in the New York Metro Area (literally – we’ve photographed over 300 weddings!). When navigating the wedding planning process, it can be so difficult to figure out venues, vendors, logistics, and budgets. That being said, we thought it would be helpful to give some information based on our experience photographing weddings at The William Vale Hotel. See all the details below!
The William Vale is located in the heart of Williamsburg at 111 N 12th Street in Brooklyn. Surrounded by industrial warehouses with soaring views of the entire Manhattan skyline, the space will take your breath away. The 23rd floor rooftop makes an incredible ceremony space for both locals and out-of-town guests alike. And because the venue is also one of the best hotels in Brooklyn, easy room blocks and personal concierge make hosting a large event a seamless experience for your guests.
If you're looking for a Brooklyn wedding with an all-inclusive yet luxury experience, look no further than the William Vale. All catering is provided in-house by Chef Andrew Carmellini and Noho Hospitality Group, including staffing, beautiful tables and chairs, linens, and standard rentals. This means you can rest assured the team supporting your event will be experienced.
You can have up to 220 guests for a seated dinner and reception at this venue. Multiple spaces, including the Vale Ballroom, the Vale Pool & Terrace, and rooftop bar Westlight, means that you have flexibility depending on weather and an easy flow for guests from event to event. You can even have your reception outdoors under market lights!
One of the best things about getting married at The William Vale is their luxury penthouse suit, the Vale Garden Residence. This art-filled, two-story duplex with a stunning outdoor space and private pool makes an incredible space for getting ready photos and a view to wake up to the morning after.
While the flowers may fade, the guests may go home, and your gown goes into the closet….your photos are the one thing from your wedding that holds its value. It’s not just about having someone with a professional camera to come and simply document your wedding.
You don’t want to scroll back through your photos and think “Yup, that’s what the day looked like.” You want to hold your photos in your hands and say, “This is what the day felt like.”
Investing in a photographer that can truly capture the ambience and love in your day. From the in-between candid moments between you and your partner to the laughs of your college best friends during the cocktail hour, every moment matters. A photographer who can not only capture these memories but also make you feel at ease and comfortable is the best investment you can make.
