Rides will be provided from the church to the restaurant and will begin at 5:15pm.
After dinner, anyone who would like to will be welcome to join us upstairs at Saint Mazie for a set by Morgan O’Kane from 9–10pm.
Forever—is composed of Nows—
‘Tis not a different time—
Except for Infiniteness—
And Latitude of Home—
From this—experienced Here—
Remove the Dates—to These—
Let Months dissolve in further Months—
And Years—exhale in Years—
Without Debate—or Pause—
Or Celebrated Days—
No different Our Years would be
From Anno Dominies—
If you sit down at set of sun
And count the acts that you have done,
And, counting, find
One self-denying deed, one word
That eased the heart of him who heard,
One glance most kind
That fell like sunshine where it went—
Then you may count that day well spent.
But if, through all the livelong day,
You've cheered no heart, by yea or nay—
If, through it all
You've nothing done that you can trace
That brought the sunshine to one face—
No act most small
That helped some soul and nothing cost—
Then count that day as worse than lost.
Here's our guide to the neighborhood for all you out-of-towners. Note: a lot of places in Brooklyn are cash only so watch out!
Airbnb is a great way to take advantage of some amazing apartment rentals in Brooklyn.
The best value in the neighborhood. Great location, no frills.
235 Meeker Avenue between Union Avenue and Lorimer Street
Upscale and right near the park.
160 North 12th Street between Berry Street and Bedford Avenue
A little out of the way but very nice.
251 North Henry Street
Rustic and relaxing with a cozy cabin feel.
111 Powers Street between Leonard Street and Manhattan Avenue
The best way to get around New York is by subway. Pro tip: before purchasing a metro card, use this calculator to determine how many rides you can get out of whatever amount you put on your card. Go with their suggestions to avoid getting stuck with a remaining balance.
The church and the restaurant are both near the subway, two stops away from each other on the G line.
New York has an excellent bike sharing system too with hubs all over the city. Extra points for anyone who bikes to the wedding! And The East River Ferry is a great way to get out on the water for not much more than a subway ride.
Yellow taxi cabs can pick up and drop off passengers anywhere in New York City. You'll see them mostly in Manhattan.
Green taxi cabs (or boro taxis) can be hailed in Manhattan above Central Park and all outer boroughs (the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island) except at the airports. They can drop off passengers anywhere, but will not be able to pick up new passengers within Manhattan's "yellow zone" (south of East 96th and West 110th Streets) or at airports.
These are the car service companies available in our neighborhood. You can call them anytime and usually be picked up within five minutes.

The hashtag is to help collect photos from the evening. If you post any to Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter, please tag it with #GtrainLoveStory and they will be added to our wedding album on Flickr. You can also add photos directly to the Flickr album.
The G Train runs north/south, primarily in Brooklyn and hits (most of) the best neighborhoods. When we first met, Jllian lived at the top of the G Train in Greenpoint and I lived further south, off the same line in Bushwick. The G has taken us on many an adventure since and will surely bring us on many more to come. So here’s to the G!
There are no parking garages near the church or the restaurant. The only parking available near either venue will be on the street. You should be able to find something relatively nearby but we suggest you give yourself some extra time to find a spot.
Unfortunately, due to space restrictions, we can't include kids in the festivities.
If you have a food allergy, dietary restriction, or any special request, please let us know in your RSVP or contact us anytime and we'll make sure you don't go hungry.
