I have 75 guests that can back me up on this but I was literally the chillest bride ever. That’s what I remember most about that day, the way I felt, which was calm, joyous & aware. That’s a result, really, of those aforementioned guests & all the rest of the kind & immensely talented humans it took to interpret our love story into one unforgettable day. So, to our family, friends & vendors: a wholehearted thank you. Your presence & support on that day is the foundation of our memories.
I think being a carefree bride is a chose & it starts in the planning process. My husband & I are both in creative fields (he is a software developer, I am a fashion editor/stylist), so creating a certain aesthetic was important to us so we made it a priority to hire people whose eye & work we believed in & could trust to channel our vision & sensibility. Then we just let them bring the elements of their expertise to us. That’s my biggest advice to future brides’s to be: hire well, worry less.

What a chic location for this wedding! I’ve always thought the Brooklyn Waterfront in DUMBO is just ideal.

Ever see those weddings where it just looks so low-key and fun that you know you’d totally get along with the couple? Thats what this one reminded me of! All the inspiration came from the groom’s tie, and because she’s a botanist (how cool is that?), they did all their own flowers AND gifted their guests with seeds bottles personalized for their home regions!

You’ll be hard pressed to find a cooler NYC wedding than this one shot by the fabulous Mademoiselle Fiona. Super simple and modern (thanks to this architect trained bride) with pops of gold and neon, there’s lots of inspiration to take away.
