Colorful Brooklyn Wedding

This is the sort of colorful Brooklyn wedding you just can’t help but love.  The perfect blend of laid-back charm and serious romance, it’s a cultural-infused charmer from start to finish.  Think vibrant teal, orange and pink hues, gorgeous florals from Park Deli and a stunning River Café setting.  See it all captured beautifully by Judith Rae in the full gallery.

From Judith RaeNozomi and Lee are definitely a unique and delicious couple! We can start with their Japanese inspired Jewish wedding – their chuppah was handmade using Lee’s great grandfather’s tallit (prayer shawl) tied to bamboo sticks and anchored with antique crates and flower pots. One of their best friends served as the officiant and officiated via an ipad. Through the years they dated, Nozomi taught Lee how to speak Japanese and his vows were written and recited in both Japanese and English as a sign of respect and love for Nozomi’s family and culture.

Having met in Brooklyn at Lee’s first Guactacular Event (Lee Frank is the founder of Nachos NY and Guactacular) they felt like the River Cafe and brick-covered Dumbo really represented their relationship. Lee and his groomsmen’s cufflinks represented all of their favorite hobbies, naturally Lee’s was an avocado representing his love for Nacho’s and guacamole! Nozomi’s passion for hair and fashion made her full tulle veil that resembled a beautiful mane of hair the perfect fit for this gorgeous bride. Nozomi’s veil was handmade in England by What Katy Did Next.

From DM Events Planning and Design… Right over the Williamsburg Bridge in Brooklyn you will find the iconic Williamsburgh Savings Bank. This marvelous gem has been thoughtfully restored from its already grandiose beauty into Weylin B. Seymour’s, a meticulously crafted wedding venue. Each and every nook and cranny has been designed with an eye for detail that makes our hearts flutter, and as you can imagine, as soon as it opened its doors, the wedding community swooned! Weylin B. Seymour’s reminds us of a time filled with opulence, elegance, and style – the inspiration for the photoshoot.

We knew our design needed to be worthy of this extraordinary venue. We started with the basics: tables and chairs and immediately thought of Nuage Designs, whose incredible linens and chair covers are actually anything but basic! With so many textures to choose from, selecting just one can be a challenge, but we felt that a champagne sequin linen would really pop in the space and not conflict with the ornate patterns and colors that fill the main room. We wanted to put a spin on the classic gold candelabra, a trademark of an opulent design, so we carefully curated a collection of mismatched glass candlesticks featuring gold taper candles. The candlesticks were placed within a garland of seeded eucalyptus which formed a runner of greenery down the center of our sequin fabric. While we didn’t want to compete with the colors of the room, we wanted to pay homage to them, so we selected lush blooms of peonies, garden roses, and ranunculus in gemstone shades of ruby and amethyst. Next, we focused on the place settings – we wanted each element to make a statement so we selected bold items such as black patterned china and gold flatware, and paired them with classic gold rimmed glasses. When it comes to stationery, no one does glamour like Ceci New York! The patterns of her designs were a perfect complement to the amazing patterns in the décor of the venue. Our vision would not have been complete without a luxurious desert bar and Nine Cakes created confections that were as beautiful as they were tasty. Dessert bars are all about variety of flavor and style, so to display the two cakes and few dozen small bites we had a blast selecting gold platters, dishes, and trays – some were so beautiful, they now adorn our studio!

As we reviewed our design plans, we reflected on how amazing a glammed up bride would look with all of the elements – our gorgeous tables, the vintage elevator, and the grand fireplace. The bride’s look was crafted by the totally amazing team at Facetime Beauty – not only are these beauty artists talented, but they leave you feeling like a million bucks (just the look we were going for!) If there is someone who loves to capture details as much as we love to create them, it is Trent of Trent Bailey Photography. He absolutely nailed it – we can get lost in all the dreamy photos from this fun filled day of design.

From Ready Luck PhotographyElana & Amit met during their Freshman year of college at New York University. On June 9, 2013, after 14 years of dating, they decided to tie the knot in their hometown of Brooklyn, NY. They were married at the Boathouse in Prospect Park, just a few blocks away from their apartment.

Prospect Park is a particularly special place to Elana & Amit, so they took inspiration from the park and the history of the Boathouse when designing their wedding. Elana, a Designer and Founder of Mélangerie, created all the paper goods for the wedding with hearty production assistance from Amit, also a maker at heart (both Elana and Amit work at Etsy ) Details included handmade paper peonies for each invitation, programs fashioned as “field guides” to reference the Boathouse’s Audobon legacy, and letterpress floral coaster favors (from Sesame Letterpress) that did double duty as place cards thanks to lovely calligraphed tags by Paperfinger.

The ceremony was outdoors, dockside on the boathouse lake, and featured lots of personal touches, like a variation on the traditional Jewish “7 blessings,” each interpreted and read by a family member, and Elana & Amit’s golden retriever Teddy as the “flower boy,” escorted down the aisle by the bride’s brother. The bride & groom were married under a modern, floral chuppa created by Poppies & Posies, and guests shaded themselves from the afternoon sun with peppered parasols and paper fans.

The celebration continued with an family-style lunch at a single long table filling the width of the boathouse. The french doors were open to the patio, letting in the early summer weather and creating a laid back garden party vibe. Peonies were the focus of fabulous floral centerpieces and garlands created by Poppies & Posies, and guests were serenaded to the jazz tunes of Michael Arenella & his Dreamland Orchestra.

Elana & Amit’s favorite meal is dessert, so of course, the day ended with a spread of their favorite cakes and cookies from One Girl Cookies, Four & Twenty Blackbirds and BklynLarder.
