The reception was at The Liberty Warehouse, which is actually where the first "Real World" T.V. show took place. Remember them?!
Anyways, it was a gorgeous reception venue. The view was breathtaking, and cocktail hour took place outside overlooking the water.
The weather was sunny, breezy, and the perfect temperature. We spent a lot of time outside, before we were called in for the bride and groom's entrance. When we got to our table, the centerpieces stole the show. They were giant vases full of fresh flowers, surrounded by candles of varying heights.
In between courses, we snuck outside for sunset. I don't think I could have planned the picture below any better. The ship cruised in between the setting sun and the Statue of Liberty at just the right moment.
After sunset, we spent the rest of the night celebrating, dancing, and enjoying delicious cake and...pizza! The bride and groom had a pizza truck drive up, and guests received a small box of pizza as their wedding favor. What a great idea!
A few days after the wedding in Brooklyn, M and I celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary on June 26th. He came home early from work, and we enjoyed some quality time. I made him dinner, and we took a walk with Stella. We exchanged little gifts (cotton is the theme for 2nd year anniversary gifts), and relived our special day!
