VENDOR FEATURE: BROOKLYN WINERY
We are really excited about this blog post because we are featuring one of our favorite vendors: Brooklyn Winery! We got in contact with Emily, the Senior Events Manager, and had her answer a few questions about weddings and working with us!
Tell us a little about yourself!
Hey, I’m Emily, the Senior Events Manager at Brooklyn Winery! I’ve been with the company for over 6 years and have worked with hundreds of couples. I’m from the Finger Lakes area where we source many of our grapes, so despite being an urban winery, our wines always taste like home to me.
What is your favorite thing about working in weddings?
Weddings are wonderful chaos. The amount of work that goes into planning a wedding is insane, and it’s such a joy to watch it all come together. It has been my honor and privilege to witness hundreds of people as they join their lives together. For all the madness, there’s just as much joy.
Can you share a fun memory while working with Silver Arrow Band?
I’ve worked with Silver Arrow more times than I can count, and they are always a treat to work with. Personally, I love set up time–we all sing along as we prepare for the evening ahead. Silver Arrow is always SO professional, but also just genuinely cool humans.
What is your most memorable experience as a venue?
The Blizzard Wedding. A few years back, NYC was shut down due to a blizzard, and of course we had a wedding that day. Despite a million setbacks (and constant snow shoveling), we pulled it off and it was an incredible wedding.
Share one of your favorite quotes.
‘There is never a dull moment at Brooklyn Winery’ has been our motto over the years. Anyone that works in weddings can relate to that sentiment, but it’s what we love!
