Kara and Dave got married on a beautiful spring day by Jane’s Carousel. Just around the corner from the coronavirus pandemic restrictions lifting, these two had a beautiful day with close family members and friends. Since they had already changed their original wedding plans to a more intimate setting, they decided to just stick with it despite the updated rules.

Though it wasn’t necessarily a traditional wedding day format, they had a ton of fun celebrating their love story in their personal way. As Brooklyn wedding photographers, Dumbo and Brooklyn Bridge Park is one of our favorite areas to capture.

Getting Ready Wedding Photos at the Gild Hall Hotel
We started out the day at a hotel on the Lower East Side where Kara got ready with close members of her family and Dave got ready at the carousel since the Lower East Side is such a quick hop over to Dumbo. This hotel was the perfect choice for Kara’s bright and fun getting ready photos.

Typically, when couples get hitched at Jane’s Carousel, they opt to have the carousel behind them. In this case, they found it to be more special to have the city backdrop. It was also very beautiful for their families who came from out of town.
