A Brooklyn Wedding With A Killer Dance Party

Incredible from start to finish

DanNa, a.k.a. DJ whitney day & Hillary, Director of Marketing at Booker email

One sentence sum-up of the wedding vibe: Our wedding was a night filled with soulful, genuine love, laughter, and plenty of dancing.

Other cool stuff we should know about

Besides our mutual love of music, we’re both big travel buffs. A couple years ago, while dating, we travelled all over South America for six months, with a minimal grasp of Spanish and a wide-open agenda. While the stress of international travel can crack even the strongest foundations, we came back stronger than ever!

Favorite thing about the wedding

The whole day was incredible from start to finish… getting ready at the hotel, seeing each other completely dressed for the first time, reading our vows to one another and celebrating at a gorgeous venue with our closest family and friends… we couldn’t pick just one thing!

      RIGHT?! Fierce suit or The Fiercest suit? Bonus points for suit + bouquet, because you can do what you want.

  • HannahESmith

    Those are the best wedding outfits. LOVE!

  • NTB

    This wedding is so beautiful, it almost hurts my feelings. I wish my wedding had been this beautiful. Stunning! Congratulations!

    • Meg Keene

      It hurts my feelings a little too. Because why was I not invited? CLEARLY, I should have been invited. Mistake!

      • Lauren from NH

        Out of curiosity…perhaps this is too cutsie, but does APW have some kind of response postcard if one were to send you a wedding invitation? I ask after seeing the Disney and US President invite response cards pinned a few too many times on Pintrest…

        • Meg Keene

          HA! We totally should. That would clearly involve a level of staffing and organization we’re too busy to even think about right now, but I love it. Only because I want an office wall wallpapered with your invites. But the risk would be that we might RSVP yes. I never get to go to weddings!

          • Lauren from NH

            So what I hear you saying is that you would love it if we would all send you our wacky, pretty, glittery wedding invitations to paper your wall with?! Challenge accepted!

          • vegankitchendiaries

            I actually love this idea too! Especially eventually seeing an APW wall covered in rad invites!!

            I am becoming so brand-obsessed with APW it’s not even funny. I haven’t been like this since my love affair with L.A. Gear circa 1992.

          • Lauren from NH

            Yeah I am only slightly embarassed to admit that one iteration of wedding “colors” that crossed my mind was hot pink, true blue, and golden yellow, which I slept on and then realized was the APW logo! Really you can’t blame me, hot pink and glittery gold should be standard and blue is the mister’s favorite color.

          • vegankitchendiaries

            WORD UP. I loved the new APW logo. This is the year I decided that turning ones nose up at hot pink was for haters. It’s not one of mine, but I do love it used as a wedding colour (now that I’ve seen a million weddings of strangers on the internet this year).

          • Class of 1980

            I love hot pink and it’s probably my best color. And you can temper the sweetness of pink by adding lots of brown, which is what this wedding did in their reception decor.

          • Meg Keene

            Aw. I love our new site, but I think Maddie loves the logo more than I do, so I appreciate the logo love from people smarter than me.

          • Meg Keene

            LA Gear. Well. Naturally.

          • Alyssa M

            Man this is an awesome idea.

  • Valerie

    Holy hell, this is so gorgeous! Both of you, the outfits, your guests, your venue…just, yeah. And the best part is that everyone looks like they’re having so much fun!

  • Lisa


    • Meg Keene

      I KNOW.

    • macaroni

      SERIOUSLY. I’m not a suit lady, but her suit game is on point. And THAT DRESS.

  • Lawyerette510

    Gorgeousness and Happiness explosion! I think my face just melted!

  • Wow! It looks incredibly warm and fun! The suit, the dress and the venue are all amazing!

  • sara g

    Most photogenic couple (and wedding guests) ever!! Those outfits are FAB. Love the venue too.

  • Ella

    Omg, just GORGEOUS. I wish haters could see these kinds of weddings, filled with so much love, beauty, and humanity. How can you hate when there is so much love right here?

  • Christina A.

    Everyone–though especially the newlyweds–looks rockin’, and like they are having the most amazing time. Laughter all around. That’s what I hope our wedding feels like!

  • Sharon M.

    Makes me wish I’d not gotten shot down on wearing a suit. ;)

  • Hannah B

    This is so gorgeous I almost can’t believe it’s real and not a fake style shoot. I mean, holy crap, they could sell these as ad shots. Wow. Also, congrats!! i want to show that one picture to any bride who asks me how she’s gonna dance in a big ball gown. LIKE THIS, LADY, WITH SO MUCH JOY IT’S CONTAGIOUS ACROSS THE INTERNET

  • Price of Tea

    I love all the shots of not-quite-kisses because they’re smiling too hard. So cute!

  • Ani

    The joy is just infectious in these photos– it’s making me excited to feel that way at my own wedding soon. Also, that suit is just fantastic! Thank you for sharing.

    The wedding clothes?! Stupidly gorgeous.

  • Valerie Day

    Why is the comment section closed on Kelsey’s post? Sad day…I’m always so impressed with the good etiquette of APW commenters. I wanted to comment on that one specifically. So happy its Pride week, and that its NOT just during Pride week that other gays and lesbians are part of the APW community. So good to see the year-round representation! And yes on everything Kelsey said.

    • Alyssa M

      They’ve been having a weird disqus issue with comments closing on random articles lately. I could be wrong, but I’ll bet that’s why.

    • MDBethann

      I’ve noticed that too. The articles Tuesday all have comments open (and I’m logged in to Disqus too) but Kelsey’s post has closed comments and I ran into that every day last week, even when I was able to read articles the day they posted (which isn’t always possible).

  • Amber Smith

    What a gorgeous, stylish couple! That dress! That dress is everything I wanted if I wasn’t forbidden to wear pink (I let him give me two guidelines, and “white or ivory” was one of them).

  • Fiona

    This is so amazing it can’t even be real. That SUIT.

  • Stephanie

    Amazing! The attire at this wedding is UNREAL!
