Seeing weddings break the mold and step outside of the box is a lovely and welcome thing. When we get served up a dish of unique wedding details with a stunning couple to boot, it reinvigorates us. Abby and Jeremy not only brought the industrial style to their Brooklyn wedding; they incorporated one-of-a-kind wedding details and florals by Wyld that were snapped by Shannon and Elena for Amber Gress Photography that we absolutely adore.

From the bride, Abby: We knew that we wanted to get married in Brooklyn (where we met), but we wanted an unconventional event space. Something that felt like our experience of Brooklyn—artsy, approachable, maybe even a little gritty. When we stepped into The Greenpoint Loft we fell in love instantly. It was the perfect mix of urban and industrial with huge potential and freedom for anything we wanted to create. In all honesty, it just felt like a really cool yet unpretentious place where we could party hard with all our best buds.

I had a very hard time nailing down a theme/feel for our wedding. I couldn’t even pick a color scheme — I kept changing my mind and second guessing myself. In the end, we just designed things that we liked, trusted our judgment, and hoped that it all came together. Almost everything was DIY, save for the food and the flowers. We are both pretty hands on/creative (I’m a graphic designer, Jeremy a custom fabricator), and didn’t really have the budget to shop out the things we wanted to create. We designed and screenprinted the invitations and table cloths ourselves (screenprinting twenty 120″ table cloths in a tiny NY apartment is a huge accomplishment). I handpainted all the signage and Jeremy built the teepee and the triangle centerpieces. We also made the zines, button bags, honey jar favors, planters, and pallet wall.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Oh gosh. Don’t listen to anyone else. Trust each other and remember that there are no rules. Jeremy was incredible with helping remind us both of this. If something isn’t coming naturally to you, ask yourself if it actually matters. And I mean, really matters. Make as many decisions as you can together as a couple. It’s not fair to leave the decision making burden to one of you. Make lists, and then lists for your lists, and then divide and conquer. Ask for help if you need it. Don’t be ashamed to throw money at a problem if it’s driving you insane. Better yet, throw out the whole idea if it’s driving you insane — no one will ever notice. Oh, and buy plenty of booze.
