Lena + Tola // Greenwood Park Brooklyn Wedding

This wedding was so much fun! I love how creative this outdoor DIY wedding was. It was a great location to shoot portraits in Prospect Park and then head over to the ceremony & reception at Greenwood Park (normally a beer garden, but occasionally will reserve as an event space)! Check out some highlights below and a few words from the bride:

“When we first started wedding planning, one of the most important thing to us was making sure the day was authentic, that it represented who we are, not only as a couple, but as individuals. Everything was curated, from the casualty in food to most of the songs played throughout the night. It was also very important for us to be sustainable with making our wedding vision come alive. Most of everything was recycled or repurposed for different uses. Our mason jar centerpieces are being used for pickling right now! Another important part for me was supporting small women owned business as we selected our vendors and who we purchased from. Our guestbook to our coaster purchase, all women owned businesses! My dress, hairpiece and makeup artist are all made by women who had different careers before switching to their own creative space.”
