Every bride should feel like a queen on their wedding day. Still, it's hard not to feel like royalty in the 17th century Akwaaba Mansion in Brooklyn, NY, with its ceiling-to-floor drapery and antique furnishings. This bride is regal in her own right, her hair in a high bun a suitable match for her beautiful pearl-roped necklace and perfectly-fitted strapless gown.
We captured her in this stately pose as she delicately lifts her full skirt to get help with her wedding shoes.
One of our many destination weddings away from our Atlanta home base. However, it felt so familiar because of our many trips to the Big Apple. Akwaaba Mansion exudes old-world charm.
Meticulously restored the 1860's Italianate villa features 14-foot ceilings exquisite architectural details, and ornate fireplaces, the décor is a blend of antiques and Afrocentric elegance. Located on a tree-lined street in the historic Stuyvesant Heights, neighborhood.1/60; f/3.5; ISO 1600; 34.0 mm.
