When it comes to stylish wedding venues, Brooklyn is in no short supply. Just take a look at one of our favorite locations, Brooklyn Winery. Tiffany and Matt chose the winery for their very own nuptials, along with Chellise Michael with photography duties and Sprout Home for some seriously fresh floral arrangements. There’s much to love here, so let’s get started!
From the bride, Tiffany: Our goal was to create a genuine and authentic experience that our guests would truly love, while still reflecting our tastes throughout. We immediately loved the space of the Brooklyn Winery, with its rustic charm and great character, and used it as a guide for the rest of our planning. Wine service before the ceremony and family-style dining were perfect for our vision of a casual and welcoming night for our guests. From there, other choices like a live vintage jazz band, and unstructured floral arrangements came naturally with the feeling we were trying to capture.
After months of hard work and careful planning – with the occasional stress and panic along the way – it was exhilarating to see everything come together seamlessly before all our friends and family. Emotions soared throughout, but in the end there was a great sense of pride and accomplishment in sharing the carefully constructed celebration with everyone important to us. Bringing the families together to see us loudly and formally declare our love was an incredible night, one that we will reflect on fondly for the rest of our lives together.
Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Don’t let traditions dictate what you want! Be creative, and most importantly, be yourselves.
