Stylish Greenpoint Loft Wedding

Modern Weddings

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.

Prospect Park Boathouse Wedding

Modern Weddings

What I adore most about Indian weddings are the explosions of color. Everything that is mobile or stationary has some sort of beautiful fabric draped on it and I absolutely love weddings that aren’t afraid of implementing heaps and heaps of color. Laylah and David’s wedding mixes her vibrant Indian heritage with the history of The Boathouse in a fashion with such finesse that the lovely shades of blues and green used stands out so gorgeously. danfredo photos + films captured the day expertly and The Arrangement gave another wonderful nod to Laylah’s heritage by incorporating tropical florals in the table arrangement and sweetly, the inspiration directly came from the landscapes from the bride’s grandparents’ hometown.

From the bride, Laylah: It was important to us to represent David’s upbringing in Brooklyn and Laylah’s Indian heritage. Knowing that the venue was full of historic details, we wanted to tell our story with modern touches that drew upon our own personal histories. The color scheme was a mixed palette of deep blues and greens. Indigo, which was derived from the textiles of India, and varied hues of greens, which were derived from the venue.

Stylish Williamsburg Wedding

Modern Weddings

Photos by:

Pat Furey

If ever there was a couple that exuded style from every pore, it’s today’s couple in this wedding from Pat Furey. The groom’s blue suit is sharp to a T, the bride’s bouquet by Fox Fodder Farm tied with an Hermès scarf is all kinds of chic, and her silk gown by Johanna Johnson is completely irresistible. Color us smitten.

From the bride, Jackie: Mike and I both agreed we wanted a wedding that felt intimate, that felt very New York, that felt very relaxed, that was full of good food; we wanted to share an intimate moment with our nearest and dearest… and then let loose and really celebrate. We live in the East Village and just across the bridge in BK was the Wythe Hotel. They fit the bill with their gorgeous indoor/outdoor space complete with foliage, exposed brick, a huge beautiful bar and oodles of built in ambiance. Fall seemed perfect – golden leaves, a chill in the air and a dream of donning a leather jacket with my wedding dress. What we got was green leaves, unseasonably warm weather and a torrential downpour to tell the grandkids about. We couldn’t help but laugh about the ridiculousness of it all.

A theme isn’t really our thing. Colors on the other hand… Jewel tones are my jam. I love love love raspberry, maroon and deep pinks. Pair that with deep greens, shades of cream, off white, ecru and accents of gold and I am in absolute heaven. That being said, the color scheme really only pertained to our flowers and the place cards. Everyone has their own style and we wanted them to be able to wear what they wanted, what they felt good in.

I can’t remember the root of it, but I wanted dip dye place cards. Some places said beet juice, others said grape juice, some said cranberry juice. Don’t be fooled, when it comes down to dying thick card stock, you need dye. I bought two shades of RIT and got down to business. It was time consuming to say the least, but I loved the way they turned out. Mike hand wrote the names of each guest. Table Numbers: This might be a little offbeat for a wedding but we have a thing with skulls. Tattoos, ceramic skulls from Mexico, hand drawn ones, decoupage plates from John Derian – you name it, we have them. I wanted to subtly incorporate that into the wedding. We hand stamped a skeleton couple holding hands with a heart in between them on the envelope on our Save the Dates. Our invites had hand stamped and embossed skeleton couples dressed to the nines on the envelope. Our table cards each had a hand drawn skull courtesy of Mike. We were going to keep them all and frame them, but a few went mysteriously missing. =) I wanted signs but couldn’t figure out the best way to do it. We enlisted a very talented friend with some serious X-acto knife skills who cut each letter out by hand and and glued them onto printed paper. Some of them were even strung together into a tiny banner for our card basket. Bless her and her crafty skills.

Old Charm New York Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

There’s a lot to love about today’s styled shoot from Julia Elizabeth Photography, Polka Dot Events, and Rose Red and Lavender, but at the top of the list is how very “New York” the whole thing feels. Architectural elements, a chic nearly monochrome color palette, and a super stylish couple bright everything together for a shoot that encapsulates the best of both old and new New York.

old charm New York wedding inspiration - photo by Julia Elizabeth Photography http://ruffledblog.com/old-charm-new-york-wedding-inspiration

From Julia Elizabeth Photography: When Tracey Goldstein of Polka Dot Events and I first started discussing the feel for our shoot, we touched upon a growing trend with her clients requesting a wedding design that is inherently New York City without being too theme-y or outdated. Once we visited 190 North, a newly opened Williamsburg, Brooklyn venue with its modern Brooklyn architecture mixed with vintage New York accents, our vision of combining old and new came to life, hence the name “Old Charm, New York.”

We gathered some of our favorite NYC vendors and gave them a little background on our “couple”: Late 20s to early 30-something modern Brooklynites, throwing an intimate winter wedding at 190 North. They love how the space’s soft color palette and wainscoting plays off the industrial garage door windows and brick accent walls, and want to highlight these features with minimalist floral and décor that is both sophisticated and understated. Their color palette is dusty blue, gray, white with accents of gold and natural greenery. Then we let all the vendors do their thing! Park Slope’s Lion in the Sun custom designed the stationery suite with a Brooklyn map overlay sitting atop a simple cardstock designed with a nod to 190 North’s geometric door patterns and mix of modern and traditional fonts. The monogram was designed by Allison Steinfeld and the black envelopes were graced with white hand calligraphy by Laurel Hansen.

Stylist Allison Koehler dressed the bride in two Limor Rosen gowns that brought our her modern day edge while still holding onto a classic bridal look. First a romantic low back dress with a long lace train for the ceremony, followed by a playful beaded silk gown for the reception. Her hair and makeup was styled natural and soft by Stacey and Gabby of Once Upon a Bride and all the jewelry and rings were supplied by Mociun in Williamsburg. Not to be outdone, the groom wore a midnight blue tuxedo from The Black Tux. Our florist Rose, Red and Lavender created an asymmetrical sculptural backdrop for the ceremony made from greenery and gold leaf accents. The same look was carried into the bride’s simple posy bouquet, and combined with white flora and succulents. Post-ceremony, we took photographs in front of the classic 1969 Checker Taxicab from FilmCars and amongst the beautifully refurbished vintage chairs by Jessica Allyn.

Our vision for the tablescape was simple yet edgy. We selected metal frame barn tables and gunmetal tolix chairs from Broadway Party Rentals, and we dressed them with a dusty blue satin runner, black and white coup china, crystal stemware and a mix of ultra-modern and ornate gold flatware. For the tablescape we used geometric gold candleholders and simple white roses in bud vases from RRL. Dish Food & Events created the gorgeous (and delicious) charcuterie spread. And what’s a wedding without a yummy dessert bar? Our adorable simple cake designed by Luckybird Bakes was the perfect compliment to the incredible dessert corner by Erin Emmett of Sweet Pistachio. We’re so proud of all the talented New York City vendors we were able to bring together to create such a sought after look. Thank you for helping us bring the vision to life!

Brooklyn Meets Nashville Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

A bride with pink hair, three different wedding dresses, leather jackets, studded heels — how much more do I need to say? This modern and chic styled shoot from Khaki Bedford Photography and Yellow Rose Co. captures the best that Brooklyn hip and Nashville cool have to offer, and it’s the absolute perfect inspiration for any rock-n-roll couple looking to get their party on.

Brooklyn meets Nashville wedding inspiration - photo by Khaki Bedford Photography http://ruffledblog.com/brooklyn-meets-nashville-wedding-inspiration

From the photographer, Khaki Bedford: My inspiration for this shoot came for what I felt was lacking in the Southern Wedding scene. Recently moving to Nashville from Brooklyn (along with so many creative peers), I really wanted the shoot to feel Brooklyn-meets-Nashville by bringing some non-traditional cool to the shoot and having more of an urban feel. This really describes my Brooklyn client and what I think young Nashville couples are craving here. The one thing I knew I had to have was a bride with pastel hair – I was dying to find a model with a rock n roll, fun style, with a little boho feel – non-traditional, a little edgy, but still soft and pretty. I also wanted to include as many local vendors as I could.

Olive and Sinclair is a Nashville staple and I thought it would be perfect to include their artisan chocolate bars as wedding favors. Belle Meade Bourbon was also used as our “favors” which was fitting since we shot in the events space at the distillery. Our hair stylist has a pretty amazing taxidermy collection, so the morning of the shoot I snagged as much as I could as a last minute addition (including a 5′ deer head)! She also let me raid her closet and contributed much of her personal wardrobe – including a fur coat previously owned by June Carter Cash. Kristin, from Yellow Rose Co. really got my vision from the get-go and was an integral part in making this whole shoot happen. She came in full force contributing her floral and styling talents and linking us up with the rentals company, amazing cake shop – Nashville Sweets and Sweet as Honey Studios for the paper goods. The Dress Theory was so amazing to work with and had so many gorgeous dresses to choose from, they ended up loaning us three for the shoot!

Art Deco Inspired Brooklyn Wedding

Vintage Weddings

You know those times when you see a shot of a couple and you’re just thinking “yeah… this is going to be a good wedding”? We definitely pulled one of those when we saw Chelsea and Alex on their wedding day captured by Pat Furey. This couple has the most amazing style, and their Old Hollywood-meets-modern Art Deco inspiration has us knowing we’ll be in love with this day for years to come.

Art Deco inspired Brooklyn wedding - photo by Pat Furey http://ruffledblog.com/art-deco-inspired-brooklyn-wedding

From the bride, Chelsea: My husband and I grew up in traditional Italian families and knew, from experience, we did not want a large, traditional banquet hall wedding. In fact, it was important to the both of us that our wedding be small and intimate as we felt that celebrations like a wedding can become more about the impressiveness of the party rather than the celebration of love. We did not want the typical wedding; we were not terribly preoccupied with everything being perfect, serious, and traditional (however we wanted to respect some traditions). Most of all, we wanted our wedding to be fun; an epic celebration of our love that included all the people in our lives who made us who we are. A lot of emphasis was put on the food and music (as that’s usually what we remember about weddings), as well as the photography and videography as that was how we were going to remember the event. I preferred an Old Hollywood or Art Deco vibe for the wedding, but rather than a “themed” wedding I wanted to capture the vibe of those eras while updating the details to reflect more modern sensibilities. I had originally envisioned a party of similar style to that which closed out the film “Meet Joe Black”, but found that no venue in our area (North Jersey, NYC) matched that look. In the end, 501 Union in Brooklyn, NY – while not waterside or secluded – truly captured the Art Deco style and atypical vibe my husband and I craved for.

There was no real color scheme; we tried to play off of the colors of the venue (black, navy, silver, gold, white). My husband wore a cobalt suit, styled as a tuxedo while his groomsmen complimented him with navy suits. My bridesmaids wore blush dresses with gunmetal sequins, thus capturing the glitz of the era (and the vague sparkle in my wedding dress, as well as the gold votives & vases). The flowers were styled in deep purples, rich greens and jewel tones to compliment the venue and bridal party. There were a couple DIY projects involved: seating chart, invitations, and table numbers. My mother and I found a vintage gold frame and used it to frame a grey mirror that we used as our seating chart. We wrote the table numbers and guests in gold pen and displayed the chart on a tall gold easel. For our invitations, my maid of honor (a graphic designer) and I worked on and prepared the design ourselves and then provided the files to a local print shop that printed them out for us. Finally, my mother and I purchased wooden table numbers in Gatsby-like font, assembled the numbers, and spray painted them with gold paint. Additionally, my mother and I used an old bird cage she had displayed in our home that we used for cards and well-wishes. To match the colors of the venue and the table details (votives, vases), we painted the birdcage gold and black.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Plan as much as you can as early as you can. It allows you to actually enjoy this time and not worry about the details. Also, make sure you both are actively involved in the planning process; it can be a great bonding experience. Decide what is important to each of you and be willing to compromise on the rest so you both get what you want out of your special day. Once you’ve gotten everything in order, let go. You cannot control the weather, the vendors, or other people, but you can control how you react to the day. This is a once in a lifetime event, just sit back and enjoy your new spouse, family, and friends. Above all, take time to simply enjoy the day and allow the moment to sink in. The day goes by so incredibly fast that you’ll think it was all a fever dream. Enjoy every single second of the planning process, bachelor/bachelorette parties, bridal shower, and wedding day. It’s an amazing experience and you should be more focused on how beautiful it all is rather than the details and execution of the party.

Don’t miss the film from Kiss the Bride Films:

Wedding Music:
Processional: “Codex,” Radiohead
Recessional: “For Once In My Life,” Stevie Wonder
Reception Entrance: “I Saw the Light,” Todd Rundgren (That song is special to us as my husband is a huge fan of Todd Rundgren, that song was a favorite of mine, but neither of us knew either of those details until he played the song one day in a car ride and we both starting singing and dancing quite excitedly to it. It added further proof to the both of us that we were meant for each other and served as a nice early bonding experience.)
First Dance: “All the Things You Are,” Ella Fitzgerald
Father/Daughter Dance: “Isn’t She Lovely,” Stevie Wonder
Mother/Son Dance: “The Man You’ve Become,” Molly Pasutti
A lot of jazz, oldies, and adult alternative (think Zero 7 or The xx) played during our cocktail hour. For the reception, we had a lot of 70s and 80s dance music (especially Yaz(oo), Depeche Mode, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder), 40s and 50s love songs (Sunday Kind of Love, I’ll Be Seeing You – Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday), as well as today’s hits (The Weeknd, etc.) and some 90s favorites (Spice Girls).

NYC Brunch Garden Wedding

Garden Weddings

It’s hard to beat getting ready at The Wythe Hotel, celebrating with friends and family while enjoying a delicious brunch, and an after-party at a bowling alley, and that’s the exact day that was in store for Angie and Domingo in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Redfield Photography captured the whole day and Sprout Home did excellent work as always with the floral design!

From the bride, Angie: The overarching theme of our engagement & wedding was “The Perfect Recipe.” We love to cook and love good food and in the end wanted that to be reflected by our small personal touches. Domingo and I are big fans of cooking and eating, delicious food. He makes breakfast every morning (which he continued to vow to do!) and I try my best to make dinner at night. Because of this, we wanted our wedding to reflect this love that we have for all things food. Additionally, we’re really early risers (he proposed at 8:16am over breakfast and when I sent out the announcement texts the majority of our friends responded with “LET US SLEEP!” and “WHY SOO EARLY??” instead of the expected “CONGRATULATIONS!”), so we knew we wanted a day wedding. We wanted to be able to take advantage of the day and the sun, and do as much as possible.

Funny thing, I had asked my husband-to-be at the time, on a whim, that if he could select one thing about our wedding, what would it be…without a second thought; he announced that he would want the wedding to take place in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. He had lived in Williamsburg while he was in college and loved it. Had a real soft spot for the neighborhood. It wasn’t too hard to convince me as Williamsburg has awesome eateries. So, despite NOT living in Williamsburg, we took ourselves to Brooklyn. Now that we had a general location and theme, it made searching for a venue a bit easier – our options were narrowed down. We had agreed that we wanted something that felt intimate. After a bit of research, we stumbled upon Aurora Ristorante. We already knew we wanted a day wedding and reception, however…we figured it would be easier to checkout the venue in the evening during the week. One evening, we decide to go scope it out and when we walked in, we were completely disillusioned… not because the space isn’t beautiful, IT IS, it was just too dark for what I wanted, and I was sad. But Domingo convinced me to give it another shot and go during the day. We did just that! The following week, we took another visit to Williamsburg to have brunch at Aurora and COMPLETELY LOVED IT! As in floored by the greenery, the space, the rustic-ness and the food was amazing! It obviously all worked out in the end but goes to show you how visiting a venue during the envisioned time of day, really plays a big part in making the decision.

We got married May 23 and Domingo’s birthday was May 19. While the wedding itself was amazing and we were on cloud nine, I have to admit that the best part of the day for me was surprising my husband with a birthday cake at Brooklyn Bowl (at the after party). We were both so consumed with all things wedding, he thought I had either opted to celebrate his birthday by, well, marrying him, OR that it just wasn’t worth making a big deal of it (his 30th), because he was getting married! In either case, he was completely blown away and genuinely surprised that I had arranged the delivery of his favorite cake and that we acknowledged his birthday. It was the best feeling in the world, because he’s always surprising me and I was really happy to be able to do the same for him (for once)! While in the end, we were extremely happy with the results; so much sweat and time went into creating the personal touches throughout the event. I did everything from the ceremony backdrop to the burned initials on the wooden spoons, with Domingo’s company on tow (he tried to help and failed – he’s a charmer, not creative). We got to spend some serious time together while I completed these tasks.

Friendsgiving Inspired Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Jonica Moore

It’s the week of Thanksgiving, which means we’ve got lots of delicious tablescapes to look forward to. This shoot from Jonica Moore, Dawn Mauberret, and Sweet Thorn Flora explores the dramatic side of autumn weddings, and we think it works perfectly for a Friendsgiving event with the besties too. Be sure to keep an eye out for the incredible dip dyed veil!

Friendsgiving inspired wedding ideas - photo by Jonica Moore http://ruffledblog.com/friendsgiving-inspired-wedding-ideas

From the shoot’s concept designer, Kerry Ann Stokes: The Moody Romantics styled shoot was inspired by dark fairytales and the beauty of nature found deep in the woods – maybe where you least expect it. Both décor and wardrobe are rich in texture-including furs, satin-faced chiffon, lace, quartz, lush florals, and taxidermy insects. This shoot is packed with detail, a love for the handmade, and vintage items. Dreamt up by accessories designer Kerry Ann Stokes and brought to life by a team of creatives, mobilized by Dawn Mauberret Events. This shoot sets the mood for a dreamy and romantic fall wedding—all beautifully captured by Jonica Moore Studio.

The color palette is rich and dark hued-highlighting deep reds, and Pantone’s color of the year, Marsala. For the wedding dresses we pulled a Rue De Seine dress with a delicate lace over a beige slip and one of Leanne Marshall’s creamy and silky dresses from Lovely Bride. We paired the first look (Rue De Seine) with a deep wine dip-dyed silk tulle veil and dark beaded crown from Kerry Ann Stokes. Sophie Hughes provided some killer jewelry for the shoot, including a custom Black Beauty Diamond Ring (we were all wide-eyed over it), black diamond bands, and fused metal pieces. For the second look (Leanne Marshall) we topped the dress with a fur shawl and a natural quartz headpiece. The bridesmaids wore maroon (Ash and Light) and black (Nordstrom) dresses, along with coordinating jewelry, leather flower hairpins, a beaded headpiece. Hair (by Stephanie Kauffman) and makeup (by MauberretFX) have a beautiful witchy vibe. Sweet Thorn Flora nailed it with the floral arrangements, which included deep toned florals mixed with lush greens and blush accents. Peonies, blackberries, thistle, ranunculus, and ferns were utilized and mixed with taxidermy insects (courtesy of Hoardaculture) and antlers-definitely making a dramatic statement.

The Grand was the perfect location for this shoot, and included a long wooden banquet table, rustic seating, exposed brick walls, a deep green pin-tuck cushion booth, and some in house taxidermy wall mounts. They cooked up a menu full of color for every course. Oysters for the cocktail hour with some fall inspired signature cocktails, a black kale salad to start, and braised ribs for the main-all served up on vintage plates and glassware from Eleven Thirty Six. For the dessert we decided to forego the traditional cake and have a table of pies and tarts instead. Deep colored berries and elaborate crust designs made for a beautiful sweets table thanks to Cutie Pies NYC. The maroon and rose-colored invites were designed by Of Note Stationers — who also supplied some stationery (Can’t Do This Without You, Dazzle, and It’s Your Day cards). Our signage was all hand painted by Kristin Texteria onto vintage mirrors, including the one large mirror in the venue. The escort cards are strung from butterflies and pinned inside vintage frames. Needless to say, a lot of talented vendors came together on this moody and romantic wedding inspiration shoot and the end result is truly inspiring!

Dinner Party Wedding at Brooklyn Winery

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

M2 Photography

Taylor and Jake had a very simple vision for their wedding day: a delicious dinner with loved ones where everyone gets to dress up, dance, and eat cake. What could be more perfect than that? M2 Photography, Square Mile Events, and Designs by Ahn were all brought on board to help out on the big day, and they all worked wonders — though we have to give special credit to the incredible floral design that still has us reeling!

dinner party wedding at Brooklyn Winery - photo by M2 Photography http://ruffledblog.com/dinner-party-wedding-at-brooklyn-winery

From the bride, Taylor: We originally wanted to get married upstate somewhere outdoors, but the travel for our guests felt unnecessary. Jake’s family was flying in from Australia and we wanted our guests to be able to relax once they go to New York and to enjoy the city we love so much. Brooklyn Winery checked off all of our boxes. It was rustic and immediately personal. Every staff member was genuinely excited for us, they felt like an extension of the guests. We wanted to hit that sweet spot of making it comfortable and approachable for us but formal enough that it felt like a wedding. The flowers really made that difference! It was like a great dinner with great food and all your friends and family got to dress up. Our friend Francis Lombardi played original music and covers during the cocktail hour. We are friends from college so to have him play at our wedding and bring everyone together was really sentimental. Then we go to just kick it and dance and laugh and eat cake. It was perfect!

Flower recipe: My bouquet was a mix of sweet pea, astilbe, lisianthus, tuberose, jasmine, passion vine and ranunculus, all in shades of white. The chuppah was made of birch and decorated in hydrangeas, lisianthus, passion vine, dahlia and green vines to coordinate with the winery. The table arrangements were a colorful mix of my bouquet plus dahlias, and the groomsmen wore yellow garden roses to pay respect to the groom’s grandfather who tended and grew garden roses at his home and wore one in his suit everyday.

We really wanted the guests to feel like they had walked into a big house out in the country, where we would be eating from the farm and decorating the space with flowers from the garden. It was full of nostalgia. Oak barrels and repurposed wood from a church was used on the walls to make the space more inviting. In the dining room there is a wall filled with plants to make you feel as though you are outside. It was very romantic and personal. The dance floor was right next to the bar to encourage the guests to mingle and get to know each other.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Wear what you want, eat what you want, play your favorite music. The day really does go by in a flash, so the more if feels authentic and comfortable then the more easy it will be to relax and enjoy it. And hire a good photographer and videographer! You can’t be everywhere at once on your wedding day and being able to look back and watch my father’s speech or see my best friends laughing and enjoying themselves, it really is a gift I’ll treasure for years.

Wedding Music:
Processional: “The Wedding Song,” Peter Paul and Mary
Recessional: “Pompeii,” Bastille
First Dance: “Latch,” Sam Smith (acoustic)
Music is so important to us. It is something that as a couple we bond over, going to shows, discovering new band, etc… Scratch actually told us that they’d never received so many song requests from a couple before…oopps. I love soul and 90’s hip hop and r&b, he loves alternative rock. We played everything from Kings of Leon, Bruce Springsteen, John Legend, Chaka Khan, NIN, Paramore, Rihanna and all that new fun music like Zedd and Kid Cudi. Then our DJ freestyled with some great club mixes and mashups for the last hour. Things got crazy in a good way! Bring on the dance circles!

From the photographer, Melissa of M2 Photography: Bride and groom both wanted more of a dinner party feel for their wedding, the “anti cookie-cutter wedding” if you will. Taylor is a pastry chef for the world-renowned chef Jean Georges and Jake is a self-described food snob so they knew their wedding had to incorporate an amazing menu and wanted a focus on the food and beverage. One challenge Jake and Taylor faced was figuring out a way to tastefully blend their inter-faith marriage. Taylor is Catholic and Jake is Jewish so they incorporated both a Priest and a Rabbi into their ceremony. Taylor also spent a few minutes privately with her twin sister and parents at their UWS church prior to heading to her wedding. When it came to choosing the location to host their wedding, Taylor wanted to make sure she had more of a hipster-vibe at her wedding in Brooklyn. The Brooklyn Winery was the perfect location. Taylor was adamant about not having a wedding cake at all – until Jean George’s head baker offered to bake her a cake as a wedding gift. Jake’s gift to Taylor was a long weekend trip to Paris. Taylor’s career as a pastry chef has made Paris a dream vacation destination for them both. Flowers: Designs by Ahn used an assortment of orange dahlia and yellow ranunculus as well as Juliet garden roses. Taylor and Jake’s color palette was vibrant yellow and orange flowers as well as cream, blush and pale pink accents. They had a birch wood chuppah decorated with branches, hydrangea, stock, lisianthus passion vine and orange dahlias. Their wedding style aesthetic was fresh, modern and timeless.

Whimsical New York Wedding at MyMoon

Whimsical Weddings

Have we mentioned how much we love MyMoon? It’s the ultimate Brooklyn destination for a modern rooftop wedding, and we’ve never seen an event there that didn’t deliver the goods. Take today’s wedding from Khaki Bedford Photography, Sprout, and Dawn Mauberret, for example — geometric details, balloon table numbers, succulent floral arrangements, and ice cream sandwiches to top everything off at night. It doesn’t get much better than this!

whimsical New York wedding at MyMoon - photo by Khaki Bedford Photography http://ruffledblog.com/whimiscal-new-york-wedding-at-mymoon

From the bride, Tiffany: We wanted something that was playful, romantic and unique, with a bit of whimsy and lots of details. I made up the term “Urban Mediterranean Garden” to explain what I was thinking! I wanted succulent terrariums, pops of bold uplifting color, gold/bronze metallics and a mix of shapes – from diamond inspired geometrics to big round balloons. And some ampersands. Somehow it came together! It was important to remember that the venue already looked amazing without any decorations (which was why we booked there!), so less was more at times. I tried to make sure the stuff I was adding would complement the already unique look of the venue. The color scheme was inspired by succulents and the sea: shades of teals and greens, with a little pop of shimmery gold for festivity.

I wanted a bouquet that featured succulents with pops of color – Sprout Home did an amazing job by combining a unique combination of greenery and unique seasonal flowers. The terrarium centerpieces created by Sprout had a succulent base with some added flower buds and ferns to add pops of color and texture. The boutonnieres were handmade by the Mother of the Bride, Sheree McKee. We attached miniature Star Wars characters to them which my husband and I had been collecting from the local Brooklyn Flea. I loved the idea of showing off the towering ceiling and sky lights with the height of giant balloons. I also wanted to avoid placing numbers on the actual tables because they were pretty narrow. So, balloon table numbers it was! Numbers were (painstakingly) cut out of adhesive metallic paper, tassels were made from gold mylar party fringe and sheer ribbon, and metallic/black bakers twine was used as the main tie.

I was dead set against having traditional floral centerpieces. Instead, I wanted pieces guests could take away with them and plants that could live on. Solution: Terrariums! I hand-selected all the vessels and the miniatures that were displayed in each piece. Miniatures were purchased from various Hobby Shops online, Etsy, and Brooklyn Flea. There were about 40 different scenes in total ranging from beer drinkers relaxing on a beach, a dog riding a dinosaur, punk rockers, A BBQ party, tourists photographing gigantic dogs, footy players, kids flying kites, snow skiers, “classy” mooners, cow tippers and more. The 24 indoor terrariums were constructed by the talented folks at Sprout Home and our outdoor terrariums were constructed by family and friends days before the wedding. Our welcome/timeline sign was illustrated by a talented friend of mine – Emily Van Tassel – to match the invites I designed. My Mom initially used the giant frame to display photos at my Bridal Shower back in my home state of Michigan. She then painted it with chalkboard paint and drove it from Michigan to NYC where Emily used a variety of chalk pens to create an amazing keepsake sign for us (She rocked it!).

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Pick a venue that you already find aesthetically special. This way, if you don’t end up having time finish all the decor or add some finishing touches, the place will still look amazing and no one will notice. It will take some pressure off of you during those last couple weeks. We choose our venue specifically because A) It was beautiful B) the food was awesome and C) we didn’t need to rent anything at all! So, we were lazy. Lists. Big, giant, sticky note lists. Take a lot of deep breaths and try to keep the whole thing in perspective (it’s not always easy): while this event is the most important event you’ve ever planned, to all of your guests it’s just another (awesome) wedding. The key elements are simple: the 15-ish minutes it takes for the ceremony and then celebrating the ceremony with your VIPs. Since your guests already love you a shit ton, hopefully they will have fun celebrating regardless of what you do or don’t do. Keep it to your favorite humans. It’s nice for the party to be small enough so you can actually spend some QT with everyone there. We had around 80 people and I realized we still missed chatting with a few and I feel terrible about it. Read A Practical Wedding by Meg Keene – it helped calm me down.

Wedding Music:
The ceremony music performed live by NY Ceremony Music was amazing. Performed with a cello and acoustic guitar, the music was breathtaking.

Debonair Wedding at The Wythe Hotel

Modern Weddings

Photos by:

Amber Gress

This stylish wedding at Brooklyn’s brilliantly modern Wythe Hotel is calling our name, lovely readers. Amber Gress and Tinsel & Twine contributed majorly to one heck of a party wedding for Kurt and Kyle, a truly cosmopolitan couple who knows how to have fun. There are TONS of great details and goodies to share here, so take some time to soak it all in!

debonair wedding at The Wythe Hotel - photo by Amber Gress http://ruffledblog.com/debonair-wedding-at-the-wythe

From the grooms, Kurt and Kyle: We met while studying abroad in Prague in the Fall of 2009. Kyle proposed in December 2013 at St Mark’s Church in the East Village (our meet up spot during college). We didn’t notice until later that Kyle proposed right above an astrological compass cemented in the square. The astrology theme tied reminded us of the famous astrological clock in Prague and it’s what ultimately led us to our design motif of constellations/stars/etc.

When deciding the look and feel of our wedding, one word came to mind: Chic. We wanted a neutral color palette that felt traditional and romantic, but as a juxtaposition to The Wythe’s amazing industrial details like exposed brick, raw air ducts, and graffit’d walls. Tinsel & Twine paired loose wild flowers with really cool, unique details like gold and glass geometric shapes as a nod to our shared love of Czech Cubism. Besides the food and the music and the decorations (!!!) one of the biggest hits of the night was our custom photobooth backdrop: a custom step-and-repeat with our wedding logo and an illustrated portrait of our dog, Butter, lovingly and skillfully created by Meghan of And Here We Are. Guests loved it. We literally had to drag people out at points in the night.

Wedding Music:

Recessional: “Bad Romance,” Lady Gaga

From the event designer, Erica of Tinsel & Twine: Our first meeting with Kurt & Kyle began with a bottle of rose and ended with an in-depth talk about astrology signs. It was love at first Air Sign. We had a blast working with an A-team vendor line-up. We’re seeing a big trend towards cocktail style weddings like Kurt & Kyle’s. We love this departure from the traditional wedding format because it allows guests to let loose and celebrate from start to finish. It feels very Now, and very New York. Traditional with a twist.

Interfaith Wedding at Brooklyn Winery

Whimsical Weddings

Brooklyn Winery is one of those wedding venues we never, ever tire of seeing. Jodi and John chose the venue for their spring wedding, bringing along Clean Plate Pictures behind the camera and G! Designs for all floral design. Purple was the color of the day, showing up in all its beautiful shades. Let’s jump on in!

From the photographer, Erica of Clean Plate Pictures: Jodi and John tied the knot on a sunny spring day at one of my favorite venues, the Brooklyn Winery! Their wedding was as sweet and fun as the couple themselves. They had a unique interfaith ceremony that fused Christian and Jewish traditions. Afterward, the couple and guests had a blast getting down on the dance floor and lifting the bride and groom up in one lively hora! I had a great time capturing all the energy and love. Wishing you many years of happiness Jodi and John!

Chic Warehouse Wedding in Brooklyn

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

Pat Furey

As soon as I heard the description “chic warehouse wedding in Brooklyn,” I was sold. Then I saw the work put together by all-stars Pat Furey, Bespoke Only, and Ariel Dearie Flowers, and I was completely blown away. Meredith and Billy wanted an intimate celebration with an industrial but welcoming vibe, and everything was topped off perfectly with a mix of fuchsia peonies and white anemones.

From the event designers and stylists, Bespoke Only: With a winter wedding in New York, Meredith and Billy always knew that they wanted something that not only feels warm and lively, but truly embraces the spirits of an inviting and intimate celebration. With the concept in mind, a sophisticated gathering was born at a warehouse turned venue that comes with both a stunning water view and an unique industrial interior vibe. We carefully curated the event with details that speak to both of the couple’s backgrounds and loves.

Inside of the raw and cool space, hanging cafe lights and generous amount of candlelight together provided a festive ambient lighting that warms up the exposed brick walls and expansive floor space. Exquisite and elegant, the head table was set apart by a vintage style farm table adorned with ample pale wooden pillar holders. A array of tables in mixed shapes brought interests to the floor layout, while deep champagne linen with jeweled toned of floral tied the entire scene together harmoniously without feeling overly matched. A large chalkboard that highlights the couple’s signature cocktails welcomed the guests by the entrance, while one gestural flowering quince arrangement hinted the coming of a new season as well as life. The ethereal ceremony had an altar that was graced by puddles of sequin runner and abundance of tea lights. When the night got late, a s’mores station was set up by the open fireplace, which made the most perfect concluding note for a night that was nothing short of warmth and togetherness.

Intimate and Personal Wedding at MyMoon

Elegant Weddings

I don’t know what it is about hanging flower decorations, but I never seem to tire of them. They make a winning ceremony backdrop, and we love how they were implemented for today’s wedding at MyMoon from Rebecca Yale Photography and Designs by Ahn! Jannie and Ivan’s day was full of personal details perfectly suited to this self-titled opposites-attract couple.

intimate and personal wedding at MyMoon - photo by Rebecca Yale Photography http://ruffledblog.com/intimate-and-personal-wedding-at-mymoon

From the bride, Jannie: Ivan and I first met at a Summer job in 2003. We were really good friends for about 4 years before we started dating in 2007. I hear a lot of people say “I married my best friend” but it really hits home for us because we were truly just best friends before we even considered dating. Having that foundation really helped us get this far. Another thing I hear a lot is that opposites attract. Ivan’s quiet and quite honestly a bit of a dork – haha. I’m the opposite. I’m very vocal and very outgoing. Sort of a introvert/extrovert situation here, but I think we complement each other and help each other learn and grow. In the beginning of 2013 he went on a 6 month assignment in India for work. Halfway through, we had planned to meet in Japan for a vacation. During a visit to Japan’s annual winter light show called Nabano no Sato, where millions of LED lights cover the whole park, he surprised me with the ring. The location and atmosphere was perfect.

Planning for the wedding very nearly drove the both of us bonkers. We were looking to purchase a home and planning the wedding at the same time which was probably not the smartest thing to do, but I’d like to think of it as us trying to be overachievers. Overall, I think we went through what most couples go through. We cried over our lost weekends, had little voices nagging at us all hours of the day about what still needs to be done, sleepless nights, and feeling the need to bury our heads in the ground. It was quite the experience with lots of ups and downs, but we survived it. The night was amazing. Being surrounded by all our friends and family and having the time of our lives. What we went through leading up to it, it was all worth it. We went from acquaintances, buddies, best friends, girlfriend/boyfriend, and then finally this last title, husband and wife. Still feels a bit foreign on my tongue (or typing it). I may still stumble over the word “husband,” but I have no trouble calling him what he will always be to me: “my best friend.”

From the bride, Rebecca Yale Photography: Jannie and Ivan’s wedding was a lovely intimate affair at My Moon Restaurant in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Jannie and Ivan were the masters of DIY and brought together so many personal touches like the feathered escort cards Jannie made herself to the hundreds of books stacked on the tables as centerpieces, which Jannie got from the publishing house she works at. The morning started off with a beautiful tea ceremony at an air bnb rental (which is such a great idea for a getting ready space) then off to Prospect Park for portraits and then a beautiful outdoor Ceremony at My Moon followed by dinner and dancing inside the restaurant.

St. Patrick’s Day Wedding Inspiration at a Pub

Wedding Design

St. Patrick’s Day has one of our all-time favorite color palettes, green and gold, and this styled shoot from Juli Vaughn Designs and Sarah Esther Photography fuses together those very colors with a brunch wedding for a shoot that’s making us as hungry as it is inspiring us! The icing on the cake has to be the sparkly green and silver beaded gown, a vintage find in Atlanta — just wait until you catch a glimpse.

St. Patrick's Day wedding inspiration at a pub - photo by Sarah Esther Photography http://ruffledblog.com/st-patricks-day-wedding-inspiration-at-a-pub

From the event designer, Juli of Juli Vaughn Designs: The luck of the Irish sometimes extends to vintage green beaded dresses – at least that’s what makeup artist Andrea Carter experienced the day she found the dress that inspired this shoot. Tucked in between a mound of 80s prom dresses at an antique store in Atlanta, she spotted its sparkly sleeve and fell in love immediately.

Much like finding “the dress” and being excited to plan your wedding day, as soon as Andrea showed it to me, I knew we had to give it a second day in the spotlight as a star in a St. Patrick’s Day inspired wedding shoot. And what Irish-inspired wedding is complete without a pub, a gorgeous redhead, and plenty of Guinness (in ice cream float form)? We also threw in a brunch reception with a pancake “cake”, a hand drawn Celtic knot and family crest, sparkly custom jewelry, and a letterpress invitation suite that could turn anyone green with envy.

Untraditional Wedding at Brooklyn Winery

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

Photo Philosophies

Has there ever been a wedding at Brooklyn Winery that didn’t take our breath away? My guess is no, and Courtney and Quinn’s beautiful day is yet another shining example of what gorgeous events can take place there. Photo Philosophies captured the wedding and its untraditional style (right down to the pink wedding dress) that’s just as stunning as it is off-the-beaten-path.

From the photographer, Jacquie of Photo Philosophies:
Courtney & Quinn came to me wanting something non traditional; Courtney had already picked out her ruffled pink dress with dark toned nail colors and Quinn’s cool chilled out style was a perfect match to Courtney. While mixing some of these off the beaten path elements, Courtney also wanted elegant, “rustic chic,” opting for Brooklyn Winery as their venue with super personal DIY touches.

Garden Inspired Wedding at Brooklyn Winery

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

Ashley Caroline

Without fail, weddings at New York’s Brooklyn Winery stop us in our tracks. As one of the most unique and recognizable venues today, their weddings always pack a punch and are nothing short of inspiring. With Ashley Caroline behind the camera and Sprout taking the reins with floral design, this is definitely one for the books.

garden inspired wedding at Brooklyn Winery - photo by Ashley Caroline http://ruffledblog.com/garden-inspired-wedding-at-brooklyn-winery

From the bride, Kaitlin: Taylor and I were looking for a location and a theme in the category of rustic, urban and romantic. We wanted it to be classy and casual so the location really allowed for that. With Taylor being a wine importer, aside from a wedding in Italy the BK Winery was the next best thing. We fell in love and moved in together while in New York/Brooklyn so even though we now live in Burlington, Vermont, it was really important for us to have the wedding in the amazing city of New York. The Wythe Hotel was where the bridal party and our families stayed and it was absolutely perfect. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful during our stay. The rooms are incredible and the views of the Manhattan skyline….!

We had a color scheme of light peach, off white and green. We had amazing support from family and friends for all the details of the wedding. There was these adorable chocolates from my mother in law at each place setting for the rehearsal dinner. My mother helped with the little details like napkins with our initials and my aunt made the seating chart.

Wedding Music:
Processional: “Hoppipolla,” Sigur Ros (performed by Vitamin String Quartet)
Recessional: “Triangular Daisies,” Rubblebucket
Newlywed Entrance: “This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody),” Talking Heads
First Dance: “Re: Stacks,” Bon Iver
We had fun with the “waiting music” what played while everyone got seated before the wedding: it was songs like Heaven Beside You by Alice in Chains, Forty Six & Two by Tool (the acoustic version) we closed out the wedding with the last song All of My Friends by LCD Soundsystem.

From the photographer, Ashley Caroline: Kaitlin and Taylor’s wedding was full of charming personal touches influenced by Brooklyn, their first home together, and Burlington, Vermont, their current home. The Brooklyn Winery was the perfect venue with reclaimed wood walls and hanging green plants adding natural elements to the venue. Kaitlin stunned in her strapless lace gown with a single white flower in her low chignon updo. Their stationary was pressed with deep green embossing and the florals had a perfect blend of natural garden blooms consisting of ranunculus, succulents, garden roses and more. Each flower differed from one another adding interest to the eye from every corner. The bridesmaids wore pastel yellow and peach dresses in different styles that playfully flowed in the wind. We took pictures on the Wythe Hotel’s private balcony overlooking Manhattan and walked to the Brooklyn Winery, stopping for pictures along the way. We took photographs in front of a colorful brick wall with the word, “FIREWORKS,” written above the bride and groom and it could not have been more fitting. The Brooklyn Winery sunroof and bistro lights lit up the room full of long wooden farm tables decorated with mismatched china, succulents, candles and bottles of flowers. The guest’s names were individually scripted on a tag attached to their favors, Vermont maple syrup. It was a perfect day!

Stylish Brooklyn Wedding at MyMoon

Lev Kuperman

Brooklyn certainly has no shortage of incredible wedding venues, but one of our favorites has to be MyMoon in Williamsburg. The site proved itself the perfect location for Jillian and Aiden’s wedding. Lev Kuperman and Sprout Home also outdid themselves behind the camera and with floral design, respectively, for a romantic industrial wedding that’s sure to inspire.

Stylish Brooklyn Wedding at MyMoon - photo by Lev Kuperman http://ruffledblog.com/stylish-brooklyn-wedding-at-mymoon

From the bride, Jillian: We wanted a effortlessly pretty wedding. We wanted everything to look pretty, and a little rough around the edges. Some adjectives to describe our wedding would be classic, romantic, rustic, enchanting, elegant, and charming. Our theme was to just make the day pretty and romantic, and add a bit of Brooklyn to it. We didn’t have a color theme, but I would say we used a lot of different shades of pink with pops of yellow, and a lot of green. Our DIY project were our thank you favors which were bottles of infused peach bourbon. We had infused bourbon for 3 months before bottling them up for our guests.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? I would say enjoy planning and make sure both couples play a part in making the decision. My Husband and I did this and the wedding perfectly represented us. You could see that the detail in the flowers, venue, wardrobe was all very personal and represented us both individually and as a couple. Planning is so much fun, and on the wedding day when I walked into the reception and saw that my florist really understood what I wanted, and how I wanted all the bud vases set up. I was so happy! But, there were things that don’t go exactly as planned on your wedding day, but you have to just move on and thing will work itself out. We forgot out table signs, and I didn’t realize until I arrived. I didn’t panic and the venue just happened to have some extras laying around. It was great.

Wedding Music:
Processional: “You’re So Cool,” Hans Zimmer (True Romance Soundtrack)
First Dance: “Just Like Heaven,” The Cure
We played a mix of 80ss and Classic Rock. Everyone was Dancing! Who hates Classic rock and Classic 80s tunes? We all know the words, which makes it more fun to dance to! Our Processional song was “You’re so cool” from the movie true romance. My husband has the True Romance Tattoo on him with our names inside (Like Clarance and Alabama) It’s his favorite movie, so I thought it was appropriate.

Casey Brodley, Photographer

I’m not a traditional wedding photographer. My background and training is steeped in photo journalism, so that’s how I approach a wedding. My goal is to document the day, not stage it. I let moments unfold naturally, with minimal prom posing and minimal “say cheese” interference.

As a photo journalist, I come prepared for anything. Every wedding is different. I have witnessed full-grown men weep more times than I can count. I have seen smiles so wide that I’m concerned someone may burst a blood vessel. I have climbed mountains with all my gear. And this one time a sprinkler system was triggered during a ceremony.

As a wedding photographer, I walk into every job with the guarantee that I will witness pure joy. But more importantly, I walk into every job with the probability that my day will end with cake. I like to keep my cake-to-work ratio balanced. For health reasons.

A Styled Wedding at Brooklyn’s Wythe Hotel

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Amber Gress

In terms of wedding venues, New York’s Wythe Hotel never disappoints – that’s just a fact. It’s the perfect home for modern events with just the right touch of vintage nostalgia, as you’ll see in this styled shoot from Events by Melissa McNeeley, Tom Borgese, and Amber Gress. How fantastic is the indigo and gold painted wedding cake?

A Styled Wedding at Brooklyn's Wythe Hotel - photo by Amber Gress http://ruffledblog.com/a-styled-wedding-at-brooklyns-wythe-hotel

From the event designer, Melissa of Events by Melissa McNeeley: The idea for this styled shoot was to show that you can put have a small wedding (under 40 guests) in one of their private lofts (ceremony on the terrace, cocktails in the hotel room/loft, followed my dinner and dancing in the Wythe’s smaller private dining room) and still have all the special and luxe elements of a larger wedding – maybe more so since you can put more of your budget toward decor items and have really good food since you’re feeding less people!

I was inspired by one of my favorite stores, The End of History, which carries tons of mid century glass and ceramics. I am amazed that this store exists and is full of so much beauty right in the middle of the west village. They were kind enough to loan me items for the bar and dinner and what I chose worked really nicely with my violet, navy and gold palette. We painted vintage poetry books as place cards, used vintage mid-century tea towels (from eBay) as napkins and vintage furniture from Patina. I felt that something “outer space-ish” fit in with the mid-century feel, especially with such and imaginary outer space print that I found on eBay. There is something sort of wholesome and fun and vintage yet totally modern about it and plus those colors are so flattering as a backdrop!

A Brooklyn Wedding For Two Actors

Modern Weddings

Photos by:

Love Katie + Sarah

I find it difficult to put into words just how much I love this wedding. There’s something to be said for two members of the arts and performers marrying — as photographer Sarah Collins of Love Katie + Sarah says, “It’s the people who are used to being watched, that think they’ll have it all under control who often crumble the most in a ceremony.” Francesca and Matt’s day was full of emotion, creative touches, and an abundance of love that’s nearly infectious.

A Brooklyn wedding for two actors - photo by Love Katie and Sarah http://ruffledblog.com/a-brooklyn-wedding-for-two-actors

From the bride, Francesca: Matt and I wanted an intimate, and nurturing event that fostered authentic meaningful connection between our guests, many of whom were meeting for the first time! Matt’s family is from LA, mine is from New York, and we had family friends traveling in from as far as the UK. We wanted to celebrate in a cocoon of our nearest and dearest. This feeling extended into the style – our lounge was made up of chairs and floor pillows my mother gave us as a wedding gift, On a family visit, Matt and I found a gorgeous Kantha Quilt at one of our favorite shops in Tarrytown (Nine Streets NY) that was later used as a backdrop for the ceremony. Candlelight, Persian rug runners, tassel garlands blowing in the wind, and lush florals all helped to create this secret garden, bohemian, backyard-wedding-in-the-city that we hoped would make our guests feel completely at home.

We wanted our evening bathed in warmth, and light, unmanicured but thoughtfully curated with personal elements. A total garden cocoon full of vibrant touches of color, with a bouyant, carefree energy. A centering, connective space for Matt and I to exchange our vows and for us all to celebrate some LOVE! The color scheme was inspired by my floral crown; I loved the saturated, celebratory pinks, and raspberry tones. So much of the wedding was done with our own hands, and the hands of dear friends and family. I designed, hand-illustrated and calligraphied the invitation suite, programs, signage, menu and had them reproduced using a local printer near my hometown in Mt. Kisco. I built the escort board from a gold frame sourced at BlickArt Supply, fish eye hooks, raffia and twine, watercoloring and handwriting each tag. A total labor of love but absolutely worth it! For our gift to the guests, Matt’s mother made kumquat marmalade jam from the tree Matt’s dad had planted in his childhood home’s backyard, and we packaged them in brown paper, and hand written tags. My dear friend Susan sang accompanied by her bandmates on the guitar/banjo and fiddle. Matt is a huge lover of astrology, so we placed horoscope books in little nooks for guests to enjoy. The wedding cake was made by Helene Godin, a dear friend and owner of our favorite local bakery and the tablecloth that dressed our dessert table belonged to my great grandmother.

As New Yorkers, a primary mode of transportation is walking so we thought it would be lovely to leave our guests hand in hand and walk through the streets of Brooklyn back to our Airbnb. I changed into a sweet jumpsuit, threw on a pair of Dieppa Restrepo oxfords and Matt and I attached “Just Married” garlands to our backs before leaving the venue. As we strolled, we continued our wedding celebration with our larger city community with sweet strangers wishing us well as we passed… The list goes on and ON! It took a village!

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? You are not alone! Draw on your talents and the talents of your community to help you bring together the personal elements of your big day. It is not only budget friendly, but it will make your wedding feel uniquely yours; stamped with the love of your nearest and dearest. I loved serving our dinner family style. There was nothing lovelier than watching our guests pass plates, serve each other, and have a giggle in between. It helped to gel everyone beautifully. Matt and I are both artists and were keen to work within our budget. Don’t be shy to talk with your vendors very honestly about your spending limits. They may be willing to work around charging tax, if you offer to pay in cash. If you have friends and family who are willing to help deliver vessels at the end of the night, vendors may hold their breakdown charges. Totally something to think about, when narrowing down your team of collaborators! Hire a day-of coordinator!! We asked our dear friend, Karli, who had an incredible knack for organization and detail to work with us. Karli and I worked together for two months before the wedding, building a binder of vendor contacts, floor plans, prop lists, and a timeline. As a result, during the wedding weekend I was able to pass the reins off to her knowing that Matt, myself and my immediate family and friends would be able to be 100 percent present. She was a complete lifesaver.

Don’t miss the wedding film from Birdhouse Films:

Wedding Music:
Matt and I fell in love over music. and I trusted no one (not even myself!) with the task of creating a playlist for the evening more than him. When our guests RSVP’d we asked them what their favorite love songs were. Matt intertwined some of their favorites with ours; Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong, Andrew Bird, Luke Temple, Bowerbirds, Aretha Franklin, Sam Cooke, Beirut, and Nina Simone.
Processional: “RE: Stacks,” Bon Iver; “Somebody to Love,” Valerie June
Recessional: “Obvious Child,” Paul Simon
First Dance: “Now You Know,” Anais Mitchell
Family Dance: “All You Need is Love,” The Beatles; “Happy,” Pharrell Williams

From the photographer, Sarah of Love Katie + Sarah: Matt and Francesca contacted me to shoot their wedding a little over a year ago. When I got the email, I was of course in Melbourne and the thought of being flown to shoot an international wedding in NYC was of course both overwhelmingly exciting and also scary. You know if it goes well it’s going to be the greatest experience ever, but there’s also a part of your brain just thinking “What if I get mugged or the airport scanners somehow erase the photos off my memory cards?!!” It was officially the loveliest predicament I’ve ever been in, and was so so unexpected to be asked. I honestly could not have asked for a greater wedding. It was intimate, colourful, bold, full of emotion – and so much FUN – and held on possibly the most perfect summer’s day that a bride, groom and photographer could hope for. I always feel like I can tell the vibe of a wedding from the second I walk into the ‘getting ready’ part of the day. It’s so strange, but after shooting for so many years, if there’s a stressed kind of vibe in the morning, there’s a stressed vibe all day and even into the reception. I walked in to both Matt and Francesca’s apartments and it was just so serene and warm. Everyone was smiling and just enjoying every moment, and it was like “YES! This is going to be a good one!!! I am SO happy I get to do this!!” We all felt so good about the day ahead, and just kept looking at each other with total disbelief that everything felt so so perfect. When I got to Frankie’s Spuntino and saw the setup and all the details I knew it would photograph like a dream. Everything just worked and felt so right for the couple. I really feel as though I can’t ever top this wedding, it was definitely a career highlight!

Rooftop Farm Wedding

Modern Weddings

When you’ve got a bride who’s an urban farmer, there’s essentially no venue more ideal for wedding festivities than a rooftop garden. Luckily bride Alia just so happens to work at Brooklyn Grange, a site which provided the perfect backdrop for a celebration with beau Ian and their closest friends and family. Thank you Brookelyn Photography for capturing it all!

Brooklyn Grange wedding - photo by Brookelyn Photography http://ruffledblog.com/brooklyn-grange-wedding

From the photographer, Brooke of Brookelyn Photography: The Brooklyn Grange has got to be one of NYC’s most jaw dropping + unique venues. A full-time working rooftop urban farm with 380 degrees views of both the Manhattan skyline + Brooklyn + Queens. Although magical at any time of day, when the sun starts setting on the city guests can enjoy cocktail hour with quite possibly NYC’s best skyline views. Ian’s a photographer + Alia works on the farm, so I felt especially honored with the job of documenting their special celebration.

Guests stood in-between rows of produce to watch them exchange their vows… + of course an epic meal followed with King Salmon that Ian’s dad caught in Alaska + most of the salads + veggies coming right from the farm itself. Doesn’t get fresher than that! As an activity for the kids, one of the grange’s farmers gave them an educational farm tour including a visit to the chicken coop + an explanation of the rooftops beekeeping operation + beehives. Custom made seed packets and vegetables made for gorgeous + sustainable table settings. It was a one of a kind celebration that was perfectly executed and perfectly them.

Punk Rock Bridal Shower

Wedding Design

If you love weddings, parties, and events with a bit of edge in them, then you’ve come to the right spot. NJ + NY team Jessica Oh Photography, Color Pop Events, and Gilded Lily Events recently put together a styled bridal shower inspired by punk rock meets prim & proper. From the bridesmaids’ styling to the paper goods to the cake studded with metallic sugar beads, you’ll get plenty of alternative ideas here for you own un-bridal shower!

Punk Rock wedding theme - photo by Jessica Oh Photography http://ruffledblog.com/punk-rock-bridal-shower

From the event stylists, Color Pop Events: I came up with the idea for this shoot after seeing a photo of Emerson’s fashion collection for Spring 2014, which was themed a “Punk Rock Garden Party.” Taking that idea one step further, I added the tea party element to incorporate some Alice in Wonderland whimsy. The overall vision for the shoot was to create a beautiful setting with girls in designer clothes, but to give everything a bit of an edge to it. I wanted people to look at these girls having an amazing time and think “I want to be them!” even if the clothes, accessories, hair, and make-up might be a little bit out of their comfort zone. This shoot was definitely meant to inspire.

The garden space at 501 Union proved to be the perfect venue for the shoot, and we were able to use the other rooms to set up the dessert table and bar cart. Gilded Lily Events created multiple floral arrangements with garden roses in a variety of vivid colors and through their in-house rental company, Dovetail Vintage Rentals, provided all of the tabletop items along with the bar cart and vintage pink chair. All of the paper goods, from the invites to the rock posters to the custom coasters were cleverly created by Mia Maria Design. The dynamic paper goods duo also handmade the darling escort cards, tea bags that were emptied of the original tea leaves and then stuffed with confetti. The custom studded cake and bright pink and yellow macarons came courtesy of Hudson Cakery. Three of the four dresses (Red Valentino, Monique Lhuillier and ML Monique Lhuillier) were rented from Rent the Runway, which is where we also got some killer punky jewelry pieces by Sarah Magid. The models’ hair and make-up was done by SB Beauty, who captured the vision of the shoot perfectly. The highlight of the shoot was definitely the floral backdrop created by Gina Paola Design, which she made by hand out of dyed coffee filters. The result was stunning. And we were fortunate to have Jessica Oh Photography there to capture every minute of the day.

Intimate Wedding at The Foundry in Brooklyn

Romantic Weddings

When we see a team of vendors including Jen Huang Photography, Saipua, and Stone Fox Bride, we know we’re in for something good. Of course, Aynsley and Nate’s wedding didn’t let us down. From the sophisticated but relaxed style to the beyond amazing floral design, every bit of this wedding day is sure to inspire!

chic wedding in Brooklyn - photo by Jen Huang Photography http://ruffledblog.com/intimate-wedding-at-the-foundry-in-brooklyn

From the bride, Aynsley: Our wedding took place on the first day of summer, so we really wanted the feel to be fun and casual but still intimate, warm and romantic. There were a few details that I had wanted from the beginning that helped shape our bohemian, playful vibe: a floral archway, string lights and communal dining tables. With its brick and ivy-covered walls, industrial yet rustic architecture and gorgeous views, The Foundry was the perfect space for us. We were also able to customize the event based on the venue’s individual spaces, so we decided to hold the ceremony in the main room, cocktail hour in an adjacent room, dinner in the courtyard and the reception back in the main room. Compared to holding it in one big space the entire night, our set-up gave the evening a fun, natural flow.

Family is extremely important to us, and we wanted to pay homage to our parents and grandparents in a few special ways: We printed and framed wedding photos of our parents and grandparents to decorate the entryway table. We also used the same cake topper as my parents and grandparents before them. And, in lieu of a reading during the ceremony, we asked our parents – who are each celebrating 30 years of marriage this year – to write and present their well wishes for a long and healthy marriage. (As a cute play off Nate’s and my love of food, they presented us with a “tasting menu” of tips and wishes!)

One of the most memorable parts of the night was during the cocktail hour after the ceremony, when our photographer, Jen, took Nate and I up to the venue’s terrace that had a spectacular view of the NYC skyline. Afterwards, The Foundry team asked if we wanted to take some photos on their other rooftop, which apparently had an even better view but treacherous slotted stairs and a loose-pebbled ground (neither good for my spiked heels). However, once we made it up, the completely unobstructed view of the sun setting over the skyline, East River and Queensborough Bridge was a real highlight and moment we’ll never forget.

Stylish Green Building Wedding

Modern Weddings

Time and again, The Green Building has proven itself to be one of our favorite wedding venues. How can we possibly resist its easy blend of industrial and romantic styles? Clean Plate Pictures was recently there to capture the wedding of Jen and Rob, whose wedding was decked out to stylish amazingness by Whimsy Weddings and Molly Oliver Flowers.

Stylish Green Building Wedding - photo by Clean Plate Pictures http://ruffledblog.com/stylish-green-building-wedding

From the bride, Jen: We’re not a couple who likes a lot of attention and fluff, so we wanted our wedding to feel fun and modern. In terms of style, we like a mix of minimalism with graphic colorful pops. We are also obsessed with food and it is a huge part of our relationship, so we wanted to make it the “theme” of our wedding. We were inspired by Smorgasburg, which incorporates a lot of our favorite things: cool people, hip location in Brooklyn, and the ability to feast on a variety of different things. I think we ticked off all those things!

Modern Brooklyn Wedding

Modern Weddings

Photos by:

Chaz Cruz

We’ve never made a secret of the fact that we just adore New York weddings – especially ones in Brooklyn. Lindsey and Brett are originally from the Midwest, but fell in love with the charm of New York instantaneously and wanted their wedding day to reflect the relaxed coolness with which Brooklyn has become synonymous. I’m telling you, Chaz Cruz, Jove Meyer, and Sprout Home absolutely nailed this one.

modern Brooklyn wedding - photo by Chaz Cruz http://ruffledblog.com/modern-brooklyn-wedding

From the bride, Lindsey: For our wedding inspiration we tried to keep things simple and inviting. We are both designers and wanted to not overwhelm ourselves with designing every detail. We are both from the Midwest and moved to New York and fell in love with it. We live in Williamsburg and love the mood and the food of restaurants like Diner, Dumont and Le Barricou. It was important to us to have our wedding in the city we call home, and we were very excited to be inviting our guest to our city and really wanted to make it feel like home for them – I think that was our main inspiration.

We wanted it to make our guest feel at home in the city we call home. We mainly tried to keep things as simple as possible. Throughout our wedding planning process we tried to keep as many things local and simple as we could. For the decorations we opted for simple wild looking arrangements on the tables and around the venue. I worked with a friend on coming up with the general look I wanted and then had a group help assemble the day of. We gathered our flowers from all over. We got our main flowers from the flower district an the Union Square Green Market. Then for foliage we took clippings from the Southside Community Garden, where we are members. We also bought a rosemary bush that we took clippings of to place in the napkin of our silver wear setting.

Other simple touches we had were: a polaroid guest book, name cards that we hand typed on my grandfathers typewriter. Table numbers done by a friend. And another fun activity we set out was a sketchbook from the Brooklyn library Sketchbook Project. We had everyone do a little doodle and then submitted our sketchbook to the tour.. Our welcome gift for our out of town guest, which was a neighborhood guide we created and a bottle of Brooklyn Brewery (another local favorite of ours). My personal favorite thing we did was our guest gifts. We loved the idea of all the cheesy NYC tourist gifts and wanted to create one of our own. So everyone at our wedding got a mug that said, “I went to Lindsey and Brett’s wedding and all I got was this lousy mug.”

Bold Geometric Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Full disclosure: we fell in love with this styled shoot within seconds of seeing the first image. We’re no strangers to geometric wedding inspiration, but this styled shoot from JBM Weddings and Tinsel & Twine ups the ante by incorporating bold colors, inspired paper goods, and housing it all in a Brooklyn whiskey distillery.

bold geometric wedding inspiration - photo by JBM Wedding Photography http://ruffledblog.com/bold-geometric-wedding-inspiration

From the stylist, Erica of Tinsel & Twine: The Kings County Distillery set up their operations in the Brooklyn Navy Yard in 2010, making it New York City’s oldest (legal) distillery. The stately brick building, which was formerly the Paymaster’s Office, is now home base for nearly continuous whiskey and moonshine productions. With a location just adjacent to Dumbo and the Brooklyn Bridge Park, it wasn’t long before locals started inquiring about using the space for weddings and events. Over the last six months, our Tinsel & Twine team has partnered with the The Kings County Distillery to bring those bourbon-inspired events to life.

We were thrilled to team up with some of our favorite local talents to produce a beautifully styled photo shoot. The building’s raw, industrial facade inspired us to create a visual story that married quintessential “Brooklyn” edginess with traditionally romantic and femme elements. To contrast with the space’s varied wood surfaces and overall whiskey brown tone, we established a color palette rich with pops of orange, pink, turquoise, and mint accented by rich gold details. This is especially true of the vignettes set in the Barrel Room, with bride and groom posing amidst a sea of aging bourbon. Strong lines and geometric shapes provided a modern element as a foil to the building’s existing stately architecture.

This color scheme, along with key textural details, can be seen in our florals, as well as the stationery by Fourteen-Forty and signage by And Here We Are. Our bride’s slim column gowns, provided by Gabrielle Bridal, have strongly angled bias seams and are balanced by a vintage fur capelet. Her gilded flower headpiece and belt by Hushed Commotion also add a bit of old world feminine glamour. The ceremony backdrop and fringed table canopy by Michelle Bablo create a sense of whimsy and unexpected color, making use of the venue’s overhead space. We are look forward to raising a glass and hosting very special celebrations at the Kings County Distillery.

New Orleans Inspired Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Kate Ignatowski

One of our all-time favorite decorative accents is Spanish moss. It immediately brings to mind Southern tree-filled expanses, even when the South is nowhere near in sight! Kate Ignatowski and Mimosa Florals brought a little bit of the South to Brooklyn, NY in this New Orleans inspired wedding shoot, with endless modern elements guaranteed to inspire you.

New Orleans inspired wedding ideas - photo by Kate Ignatowski http://ruffledblog.com/new-orleans-inspired-wedding-ideas

From the photographer, Kate Ignatowski: We shot at 501 Union, a newer venue in Brooklyn, and immediately pictured a bayou, New Orleans vibe with lots of candle-light to go with the modern, refined elements of the space. How could you not have a cognac tasting at that bar! We had the calligrapher create a menu with the couple’s favorite cognacs and included assorted decanters for an intimate feel. We thought a couple that included a cognac tasting would have an appreciation for great food, so we went with rich cakes and assorted chocolates for dessert. To inspire foodie-loving couples, we displayed thoughtful, individually written recipes for each guest as their favor.

Spanish moss was a major element used to tie in the bayou feel. We draped it from the ceiling, drenched the tablescape with it, and incorporated bits in the altar piece. I LOVE the asymmetrical design in the altar with the moss + garden floral elements tied together with orange and gray ribbon. We kept with pops of yellow and orange to compliment the cognac and grays to complement the moss. The invitation suite has a splash of yellow-orange along with hand written gray graphite for a modern touch.

Green Building Brooklyn Wedding

Katie Osgood

Every time I look at this wedding, I just can’t get over how darling the bride is! Katie Osgood captured the wedding of Stephanie and Ben at Brooklyn’s Green Building, one of our all-time favorite venues. There are many wonderful details to behold, but prepare yourself for Steph’s jaw-dropping bouquet from Sprout Home.

hip green building wedding via ruffledblog.com

From the bride, Stephanie: We knew we wanted our wedding to be warm, inviting, and echo our home decor. My husband had said, “We wanted a wedding that looked like a big beautiful dinner party that we would host at our house if we had the space.” Which is why the Green Building was perfect for us. As soon as we walked in, we knew that was where we wanted to marry one another. Its beautiful white washed brick walls, and ornate chandeliers create the perfect setting for our intimate wedding. It really means something to us that when we walked in we could picture the whole evening start to finish. And as an added element to our idea of our wedding wanting to feel like our home, the Green Building is 2 blocks away from our home!

brides in glasses //  ruffledblog.com

We knew we wanted our wedding to be romantic, warm, cool, fun, and filled with personal touches. While we didn’t really have a theme, our decor really did reflect our home life and design sensibilities. Our house is filled with candles, geodes, old bottles filled with flowers, and richly colored geometric rugs. We wanted all those design elements present in the details of our wedding. My amazing Mom made the silver triangle garland on her sewing machine that would be used to decorate mine and my husbands chairs. We found beautiful geodes, bottles, and candles on eBay, educational supplies, and other fun sites! Our cool geometric wedding programs and menus were created by my Maid of Honor, Jennifer Katz, a super talented graphic designer and awesome gal pal. We also wanted to try to use the most local Brooklyn vendors as we could. Music is also very important to us, especially my husband. So he worked with our amazing DJ to make sure all the songs we wanted were played and none of the ones we didn’t want weren’t!
