Brooklyn Bridge Park Wedding

Bohemian Weddings

Photos by:

This week couldn’t have started off in a better way than with this Brooklyn wedding, setting the tone for yet another week of stylish couples. Julie Pepin Photographer shot their wedding in Dumbo, where Victoria and Justin exchanged vows at one of my favorite places: Brooklyn Bridge park, with Manhattan’s skyline as the backdrop. So without further ado:

From the bride, Victoria:
The Ceremony –
Our ceremony was on a tiny pebble beach with Manhattan as the backdrop. The DUMBO area of Brooklyn, tucked into the shadows of the bridges with it’s cobblestone streets and Old-New York feel could not have been more perfect. As the trains went by in the distance and curious tourists looked on, all we could see was each other. It’s amazing how a ceremony in such a public place could feel so intimate and quiet.

The Reception –
After the ceremony, the guests walked down the street to reBar, which is in a beautiful loft space in an old reclaimed tea factory. The walls are filled with the work of local artists and are lit by antique chandeliers and candlelight. In the lounge area, they let us play an old Disney film we love from the 30’s called Flowers & Trees on loop. We filled the wooden shelves with childhood photos and wedding portraits of those who came before us. There was no assigned seating, no stuffy sit down dinner. Instead, we had an all night-long cocktail “hour” with all sorts of comfort food and strong drinks flowing throughout the evening. We had what I proudly claim to be the smallest wedding cake in history. It was the size of an old 45 and covered with rainbow sprinkles. Perfection.

My Favorite Moment –
My most treasured moment from a day filled with nothing but treasured moments, was when we had our first look at one another. As I walked towards him I felt like I was in a cloud. Everything seemed to be in a slight, beautiful blur. When I finally faced him it was surreal. It was him and I, all dressed up in our special grown up wedding clothes, giggling with each other that it was finally here, it was all happening. And in my mind, at that moment, staring at one another in awe, without saying anything at all, is when we really said “I do”.

From the bride.We were looking at a space in Dumbo to hold the reception and ceremony and the person showing us around said that a lot of couples had chosen to get married in the park next door. It was dark out when we went to look at the space; it was right on the water’s edge with stone amphitheater seating built into the hill. I started jumping up and down and told Alex that we had found the place we were going to get married.

We imagined our wedding would be vintage and rustic and as the day got closer we made it simpler and simpler. The color scheme we chose was red and turquoise. We wanted the day to be on the casual side. And we wanted it to reflect our love of books.

We hired our florist to do the bouquets and boutonnieres two weeks before the wedding with the idea that the bridesmaids and my aunt and I would do all of the other flowers. About a week before I started thinking that sounded a little crazy, so I called Kim, told her the budget I had set for the flowers and asked if she would do those as well. I am beyond thankful that she agreed to do them.

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? Delegate. The friends and family who are offering to help really do want to help. I know that neither Alex nor I could have finished everything we had to do without the generosity of our friends and family. Be sure to do what you want to do, even if other people tell you it’s silly. If it’s how you imagine your wedding, then that’s all the justification you need. And if you are a shy bride (as I was) don’t lose too much sleep about being the center of attention. I worried incessantly about it, and on the day of, I could not believe how much it did not matter – all I could see was Alex.
