I love everything about this simple, modern wedding! Captured by Julia Newman Photography, Inna and Mehul were married on a beautiful, sunny day last May in Red Hook, Brooklyn, New York. Surrounded by friends and family, the couple was united in a ceremony overlooking the Hudson River with amazing views toward Liberty Island. Next, Inna, Mehul and their guests headed into the unique Liberty Warehouse for dinner and dancing. I love how the simple, white decor is paired with wonderful cultural traditions for a truly one of a kind event. Be sure to take a look at Inna’s description of the day, as well as the wonderful wedding video at the end of the post!
A few words from the bride:
My husband and I have a very modern aesthetic and from the start, we wanted our wedding to radiate simple elegance. Equally important, we wanted it to be the most fun night of our lives. While we set the bar high, we kept a very open mind and focused on hiring vendors who understood our vision and who we knew would strive for excellence.
We picked the Liberty Warehouse because it felt like the perfect blend of the cities that we’ve lived in – New York, London and San Francisco. Immediately we were blown away by the gorgeous views and the surprisingly unpretentious metropolitan vibe. We’re also big foodies and we knew that catering by the River Cafe would ensure that the night was a huge success from a gastronomical standpoint.
From there, we found the incredibly talented and inspired Julia Newman who we just knew would perfectly capture the beauty of the evening. Our florist Melanie from Melarosa brought our clean, modern vision to life with gorgeous white flower arrangements that combined different textural elements. My husband comes from an Indian background and my family is Russian Jewish so music was very important for us. Heartbeart Dance Band did not disappoint – our guests did not stop dancing all night long. The best part was that we never worried about a thing; our planner Roey Mizrahi and her team took care of every single detail so that my husband and I could breathe easy and enjoy each second of this unforgettable night. The highlight you ask? WIthout a doubt it was seeing the looks on our guest’s faces when, to their surprise, my husband’s two kids joined us in the middle of our first dance for a choreographed hip hop routine to the Black Eyed Peas. Priceless!
