Entwined Studio is bringing us a gorgeous stunner in wedding form this Monday morning, and I couldn’t be more thrilled about it. Not only is it drop dead gorgeous with the prettiest little details and the sparkliest of shoes, but it also took place in such a fun venue – the Galapagos Art Space. It’s all seriously stylish with the personality of this handsome pair seeping through every little detail, and you can see even more in the full gallery of images!
From the Bride…Our little love story began in 1998 when Larry and I met in elementary school, becoming friends at 11 years old. We dated for a few months on and off throughout junior and high School until we finally began dating for good at 17. Since then our life together has been blessed with beautiful moments filled with love and happiness, not only from each other but from all of our family and lifelong friends who have supported us all these years. We have always been in awe of how lucky we are and wanted our special day to not only be a celebration of our life together but also celebrate the amazing people that have shared in our love.
In searching for a venue, we knew right off the bat we wanted something different. After researching a few places, we found Galapagos Art Space, a little gem right near the waterfront in DUMBO with amazing views of the Brooklyn Bridge. We loved the personality of the space; unabashedly relaxed and different from anything we had seen before and from that moment on it became the inspiration for our wedding. Next, we were on the hunt for photographer that would be able to tell our story and capture the beautiful space we had chosen – enter Entwined Studio. Run by husband and wife, Matt and Angie, there are no two people that were better made for our special day. From the moment the four of us sat down together, it was magic and we knew we had found our match.
From very early on, our goal was to make our personalities shine through as many details as possible. Your Hi Note, the vendor behind all of our stationery, could not have done a better job at capturing the essence of our relationship – playful but deeply in love. Though all communication was done through email, Erin was able to take the hundreds of pictures I sent as inspiration and translate it into something that really got to the core of what we were trying to accomplish. Everything from our invitation suite to our signature cocktail cards was a true reflection of who we are as a couple.
Our ceremony was by far the most special part of our day. As my mother and I approached the church in our fancy wheels, I was overcome with excitement as I realized the moment I had been waiting for my entire life had finally arrived. No words will ever adequately describe the feeling of having those doors open in front of me and seeing Larry for the first time – I was instantly hit with an overwhelming sense of joy and comfort in knowing that after that moment things would never quite be the same. Another very special moment during the ceremony was presenting flowers to the blessed mother in honor of Larry’s mother who passed away in 2006.
Larry and I love to eat so limiting our guests to one meal was just out of the question – we knew having a buffet was the way to go. With Blue Smoke as our caterer, our guests enjoyed everything from pulled pork sliders and jumbo shrimp cocktail to baby back ribs and mac n’ cheese. With bellies full and drinks in hand, our guests danced the night away only taking a break from the music to stop by the photobooth Entwined had setup or to stamp their fingerprint on our guestbook.
Every now and then we took a step back to soak it all in because we knew that in a blink of an eye it would be all over – and it was. But the memories of love we felt that day for each other and from our family and friends will remain with us forever.
