We loved capturing this unique 501 Union wedding in Brooklyn. This Gowanus wedding venue is super unique, mixing industrial vibes with a modern and fresh feeling. As NYC wedding photographers, this Gowanus event space is a versatile and fun place to tie the knot and take amazing pictures.
Fun and Candid 501 Union Wedding Photos in Gowanus
Lara and Stephen had a DIY wedding which is not a task for the faint of heart. We were so impressed with their unique decor and the ideas for their big day. This event space in NYC makes it easy as well. 501 Union weddings are basically already decorated between their cocktail lounge, ceremony space, and reception room.
Unique Event Space in the Heart of Brooklyn
These two decided not to do a first look, saving a little time after the ceremony for portraits. The first time they saw each other was as Lara was walking up the aisle. This moment is usually pretty different for couples, regardless of whether or not they’ve done a first look. It’s a special moment that reminds them that this is really the big moment.
501 Union, a Versatile Wedding Venue in NYC
As Brooklyn wedding photographers, we love the space at 501 Union weddings. There are three main rooms to have a versatile event at this stunning modern event space in Gowanus, Brooklyn. Located across the street from their sister venue, the Green Building, these two spaces have totally different vibes. We love the mix of retro and modern at this romantic New York wedding venue.

Lara got ready for the day in the bridal suite at the Gowanus wedding venue. This room is super vintage feeling and is a fun space to start the day. We also took a few portraits in the reception room, and did a first look with her bridesmaids. Since this was a Thursday wedding and the Green Building was empty, the groomsmen waited over at the sister venue until it was time to get these two married.

501 Union is a bespoke Brooklyn wedding venue perfect for intimate weddings and slightly larger gatherings. The ceremony space is a converted greenhouse, and lets in beautiful natural light for the wedding itself. As Lara came up the aisle, Stephen saw her for the first time under his DIY floral fixtures.

After these two recited their vows, they sealed it with a kiss. Having given their guests flower petals for an exit ahead of time, it was time for some creative wedding photos. Their family and friends threw petals as these two came back down the aisle. We loved this unique touch to their 501 Union wedding.

Next came Lara and Stephen’s cocktail hour and reception. The ceremony room was converted into a space for their buffet and caricature artist during the reception. This venue’s unique Modo chandeliers add some wonderful pizzazz to your wedding photography at 501 Union. The couple had a band for entertainment during the reception.

Finally, these two ended the night with an afterparty at Melody Lanes. While we don’t typically do afterparty coverage, these two wanted these final moments captured at the Brooklyn bowling alley. We love the unique idea of having this fun activity to wind down your wedding night.
