Katie + Jonathan are a true modern romance. Having lived around the corner from each other for two years in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, they finally met online. Who knows how many times they passed each other on the street, but it was our modern age that brought them together, and served as inspiration for when their big day arrived. About 135 friends and family gathered from across the globe at 501 Union to celebrate the couple. The venue was just right, with its mix of structure and softness, chic elements and handsome furnishings. Katie remembers their first look as one of her favorite moments of the day, taking some time for just the two of them before the craziness of the event began. Making everything feel personal was very important to them, so Jonathan, a freelance illustrator, designed all the stationary himself, and a family-style dinner at the reception brought everyone together.

 

Thank you Katie and Jonathan for being a part of our family, we love your modern romance!
