Elizabeth and Dan's Multi-Cultural Wedding at The Green Building, Brooklyn Wedding Photography

Elizabeth and Dan's wedding at the Green Building was held on a chilly rainy night in late October, but inside the cavernous room their guests were cozy and warm, bathed in the warm wash of twinkly lights and candles.  Elizabeth and Dan's ceremony was one of the most interesting and unique I've ever had the pleasure of photographing and they combined traditions from Greek, Scandavian, and Jewish backgrounds to create a truly one of a kind ceremony.  Guests sat in a circle around the chuppa in the middle of the room and it was truly a family affair with many readings and people participating.  One of their family member's couldn't make it to the wedding and during the pre-wedding meeting Elizabeth mentioned to me how she wanted to find a way to still have her be part of the day.  I mentioned to her that my grandmother couldn't make it to my cousin's wedding, but we skyped her in and she was able to watch via my iphone.  I was so excited when I showed up and saw the family member skyped in on their ipad and was passed around the whole day- even doing a reading that was broadcast with a little speaker.  It was one of the sweetest moments of the day!  After the ceremony friends and family joined in immediately on a hora, which circled the whole room weaving in and out of the long banquette tables.  Guests were then invited to be seated at the tables, which were styled to perfection by Little Glass Slipper and overseen by Alexandra Townsend, who coordinated the beautiful day.
