We envisioned a warm and simple environment with a coziness for our guests. We knew this would be our chance to be around all of our loved ones at once and we wanted to create a special feeling environment. It also reflected our personal aesthetic as well. The rope was a nod to our love of water and sailing.
We used natural, wooden, and organic materials. Aside from the wood and rope we used touches of grey and coral. My fiance tied tons of monkey fists knots with rope and we used antique sugar molds, cheesecloth and airplants as the main decorations.My parents were a huge help collecting all the props. My maid of honor helped me make a garland of ribbon that hung in the entry. We used extra ribbon as accents on the aisle and the bride and grooms table. I asked friends and family set up decor for me and they literally read my mind and gave me my dream wedding. I am so lucky and very grateful!
We decided that we would love to get married in the neighborhood we live in. Our loved ones are so spread out to it was important to have them all gather and get to know the place we call home, Williamsburg, Brooklyn. When we stumbled on MyMoon and it was perfect. Beautiful outdoor patio and old brick walls. The staff was perfect. They are experienced with weddings and took great care of us. Kenan is the wedding guy there and he is amazing.
