Housing Works Cafe wedding: Evan and Nora by Ryan Brenizer

I think it says a lot about Nora and Evan that our first impulse isn’t to tell you about their wedding, but to tell you about them. Because they’re awesome. Funny, smart (congratulations on that dissertation, Dr. Nora!) and brimming with the sort of nice that you still feel after they’ve left the room.

The wedding was pretty great, too. We love everything about Housing Works … from their mission to their donations to photographing a wedding surrounded by amazing books. They took it to the next level by hand-crafting decorations, building time into the schedule to build their own chuppah and adding hundreds of paper cranes they and their friends had painstakingly crafted.

Oh, and they have great taste in neighborhoods. Not only are Nora and Evan sort of our neighbors (geeking out over all the same local haunts we do), Evan and his friends got ready in our studio!

On a gorgeous sunny day Evan and Nora met each other in the Brooklyn Heights promenade. A short jaunt across the bridge brought us to Housing Works and a ceremony officiated by three friends. The reception was catered by Pies ’n' Thighs (as good as they sound) and coordinated by Brittney at BLB Events.
