On August 23, 2019, Hae Lee and Eugene Baek had their beautiful wedding ceremony held at the Brooklyn Winery in Williamsburg. Around Town Entertainment’s Around Town Band provided the music for the night. We met the cute couple back in 2016 so we were delighted to perform for their special night!
Winery weddings are classy: everyone knows that. But Brooklyn Winery is very different! Brooklyn Winery sources grapes from boutique vineyards across the country. The wines are delicious and they produce premium small batch wines, combining the quality of tradition with the freedom of innovation. This was the perfect choice for weddings since it can hold up to 100 to 165 guests and is housed in an 8,000 square foot space in Williamsburg!
Around Town Entertainment’s pianist set the tone right from the outset and showed all guests a celebration that will be an event they remember forever. The ceremony took place in one of the most stunning spots within the venue: the Atrium, an airy space that boasts a gorgeous glass roof and a hanging succulent wall garden. The pianist played “Canon in D”, “The Book of Love” by Gavin Mikhail, “Ordinary People” by John Legend, and “Don’t Stop Me Now” by Queen as the couple exchanged their wedding vows and officially became newlyweds.
After that, it was time to celebrate with wine! The wines were delicious and the Brooklyn Winery produced premium small batch wines, combining the quality of tradition with the freedom of innovation. You can even tour the winery to learn about how their wines are produced!
As we explored the winery, we discovered more and more unique design elements. The building was meticulously curated to imbue a space with a warm and romantic ambience. Inside, you’ll find beautiful barn wood walls, a zinc-topped wine bar, vintage 1940’s wallpaper, midcentury fixtures, and many other one-of-a-kind details throughout. As guests drank and mingled, they were treated to a performance from Around Town Entertainment’s jazz trio.
Next, the guests moved into the The Harvest Room for the reception. It featured stainless steel tanks used for aging wine as well as a glass wall that looks into the Barrel Room. No wedding is complete without exquisite reception and this experience!
The bride and groom strolled into The Harvest Room while Around Town Band played “Dancing in the Moonlight” by Jubel, Neimy and “September” by Earth, Wind & Fire. The newlyweds first dance was to “Perfect Duet” by Ed Sheeran ft. Beyonce. The father danced with his son to One Call Away by Charlie Puth. The mother danced with her daughter to “La Vie En Rose” by Edith Piaf.
The wedding cuisine was handled in-house by Executive Chef Michael Gordon which was fantastic! Chef Gordon has worked at New York culinary institutions such as Bouley and the Mandarin Oriental, bringing his expertise to our seasonal selections. The elegant wedding menu focused on market-fresh ingredients that left us wanting more! There was even an interactive raw bar, specialty cocktail, wine bottle favors, and much more!
When dinner and dessert were finished, it was time to continue dancing! The wedding band Around Town Band got the energy going while guests packed the dance floor. They played numerous hits including “Senorita” and “Lost in Japan” by Shawn Medes to close out this amazing night!
