From the Bride... In planning our wedding, the thing that I kept coming back to was that I just wanted a kind of "elegant rager"--a beautiful party that was also super fun and really felt personal to the two of us. I think we nailed it!

What I didn't fully expect was how overwhelmingly emotional and sentimental the day would be -- I started crying when Jessica from Foxglove dropped off the (perfect) bouquets while we were getting ready and basically didn't stop! My two best friends (who introduced Tim and me by giving him a coaster with my name and number written on it) officiated the ceremony so impeccably, and set the fun and personal tone that lasted throughout the night. Tim surprised me by having a few musician friends pop up from the audience to play "All You Need Is Love" for our processional--it was so sweet.

We made replicas of the infamous coaster that served as place cards, and the mirror that functioned as escort cards came off of our living room wall. Brooklyn Winery was the ideal space with the most amazing food and drinks. Our photographer, Isabelle (and her assistant Justin), were such calming and amazing presences throughout the day, and that shows in the gorgeous photos.

My Aunt made the flawless funfetti cake, our guests danced like crazy, and even though the bridesmaids dresses had only been seen together through internet collages, everything was perfect and beautiful.

Most of my planning was virtual and internet-hypothetical; to see it all come together was amazing and rewarding. Looking back, I feel so much gratitude—so many people have said that the day felt so “us”. We’re so happy everyone felt the love (and the party)!

From Michelle Elaine... Having met Sara just six weeks before her wedding day, you can imagine the amount of information needed to ensure the most perfect day! The one piece of information, however, that was very obvious is her love for Tim. I can still remember her opening his gift to her on their wedding day morning. She looked happily shocked and just cried such tears of joy. I have never met such an emotional bride and it was amazing. Their first look was full of sweetness and they have what many people search for – real love.

Their natural styles coordinated so well and the quaint ambiance of the Brooklyn Winery pulled it all together. From "I do" to their first dance, there was so much love and emotion, but the kind where the couple acts as if nobody is watching... or like everybody is watching but they just don't care!

They are a perfect fit, two peas in a pod and I cannot say any more kind things about Sara, Tim or both of their beautiful families. They were such a pleasure and the team here wishes them many, many years of happiness – which we know they will have!
