For our fourth annual Weddings Week, we didn't just research and write a bunch of stories about weddings—we actually planned one, too. This past Saturday, June 7th, Racked gave away an entire Brooklyn wedding to Jacqueline Berman and Akash Garg, New York–based grad students who won our Instagram contest back in May.
Below, follow along as the day unfolds, from early-morning blow-outs at Blo in Chelsea to the ceremony and intimate reception on the ridiculously scenic rooftop of The McCarren Hotel and Pool in Williamsburg. Like what you see? Stay tuned: We're hoping to turn this into an annual tradition.
