It wasn't until I moved to New York that I how much Brooklyn pride radiates from the borough. So, it seems only fitting that this native New York couple, and current Brooklyn dwellers, drew inspiration from their city for their big day—from the charcoal Jenny Yoo bridesmaids' dresses to the graphic Brooklyn Bridge invitations. Rock Paper Scissors Events executed the gorgeous couple's vision with stunning flair and Brian Hatton Photography was there to capture it all. See all the picture-perfect moments here.

From Rock Paper Scissors Events... Vanessa and Matthew are NYC natives and current Brooklyn residents, so doing their wedding at Liberty Warehouse where you overlook the Manhattan Skyline and the Statue of Liberty was a natural choice. The venue gave the couple a lot of inspiration, as did the Brooklyn borough. Vanessa is an interior designer, so naturally has great style. She brought in Rock Paper Scissors Events as design partners to take some of the work off of her plate and bring all of the ideas together as planning a wedding is a full time job on top of already having a full time job!

The couple brought in industrial elements with metal touches like the pewter chargers and candlesticks, natural wood elements with the escort card board and welcome sign, and kept the flowers from being too sweet by using Ariel Dearie's hallmark natural style of windswept and loose arrangements. Custom invitations with the Brooklyn Bridge illustrated by Swiss Cottage Designs along with tables named after Brooklyn neighborhoods rounded out the Brooklyn inspired wedding.

The couple went to Vassar College, but never managed to meet there. They were introduced by a mutual friend when they both found themselves in NYC again after school. The color palette of rose and grey was an homage to Vassar's school colors.

From the Bride... My best piece of advice for anyone planning their wedding is to go with your gut when making decisions! There are so many choices and details to consider that it is impossible not to become overwhelmed. If you feel good about something - whether it's a color, a vendor, or an appetizer selection - just go for it! I did plenty of research in advance, but I only ended up visiting one reception venue and two dress shops. With these decisions, I'm so glad that I didn't second-guess myself or worry too much about what else might be out there - I knew immediately that I would be happy with both, and it was a huge relief to be able to check them off my list so quickly.
