A Sunkissed Rooftop Wedding at Dobbins Street Williamsburg Brooklyn


One of the most well known areas of Brooklyn, New York is Williamsburg. The area is as much eclectic and cultural with a classic New York City historic charm. Williamsburg has a dynamic arts and music scene and a variety of restaurants, food spots and street food. Locals and visitors flock to the Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasburg food market in the warmer months, and visit many of the area’s boutique stores year-round. Williamsburg is accessible, too – the East River Ferry and the Bedford L train connect the Brooklyn neighborhood to Manhattan.

Dobbins St – an Brooklyn Wedding Venue with Beautiful Rooftop Views

The Dobbins Street wedding and event venue at 64 Dobbin St Brooklyn – famous for its exterior blue wall – is a uniquely charming venue with an open concept style, refined industrial feel, and rooftop terrace. The interior combines spacious with high ceilings and an intimate open-air courtyard. In the heart of Williamsburg, the venue has a one-of-a-kind view of the New York skyline which is especially beautiful at sunset.

As a wedding photographer, I see myself as an empathetic and introspective. I am captivated by the beauty of love and relationships, and how life’s journey shapes them. I relish in exploring new environments and immersing myself in local cultures, finding inspiration in both the hustle and bustle of the city and the peace and serenity of nature.
