From the couple!

All in all, we wanted a simple, relaxed wedding – outdoors, minimalistic, modern but warm and laid-back. We really wanted to focus on having fun and enjoying our close friends and family, most of whom came in from out of town (South Africa, Netherlands, Germany, CA, lots from NY, & Mississippi). We picked the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center for its open and post-industrial-esque space outside, with our fingers crossed for good weather and no trains (success on the weather!). Alice Reynolds helped us with the succulent-inspired arrangements and lots of the design details – including impromptu chalk drawings on the walkway that were a big hit with the guests.

We wrote our vows together with the help of our friend and officiant Jessica Chilton using crayons, construction paper and a toy-covered sand box (her day job is a creative arts therapist). Some of the highlights were the unexpected toasts, seeing props from the photo booth make their way to the dance floor and lavender smores (from our creative caterer SIMB) cooked over a flaming fire-pit. For the end of the night we had big plans for everyone to let off paper sky laterns, inspired by a trip to Thailand earlier in the year. Some alarmed guests, a few singed hairs, and a flaming tree later, we realized sky lanterns are a lot more graceful on the beach. Good thing the Georgia Brown Ale was flowing to calm the nerves!

From the photographer:

On a late summer day in Brooklyn, two people made a pact to love and respect one another for the rest of their lives. On September 1st, Shani & Lauren were legally joined in matrimony overlooking the Audubon center in Prospect Park, after having eloped in Paris earlier in the summer. After the ceremony, the pair perused the Brooklyn flea on the their way to 606 R&D to cool off with summertime spritzers. The newlyweds were received by an intimate reception where spontaneity ruled and the atmosphere was connected. Chatter and laughter could be heard as guests dined on delicious local, organic, gluten-free foods.  They were serenaded by one of their close friends, who sang a euphoric acappella rendition of A Thousand Years. As the sun set, the day was capped off with a stroll home through the streets of Brooklyn.

Cake: Tulu’s Gluten Free bakery

From the onset of planning our wedding our main goals were to throw an event that we would want to attend. The list of musts included great wine, food, music and some personal touches. As soon as we finished our first glass of wine at The Brooklyn Winery we knew that it was the place to host our celebration. They exceeded all of our expectations, including referring us to our photographer, Rima Campbell, who documented the night’s festivities along with vision and flare. Both Rima and The Brooklyn Winery recommended Magnolia  Photobooth Company to us, which I immediately knew we had to add to the mix, they provided a great form of entertainment as well as a personal keepsake for many of our guests.

Our ceremony started with a heart felt version of “Till There Was You” performed by Sarah King and The Smoke Rings, who went on to provide perfect sound track to our evening. Due to my love for ice cream, we skipped the cake and capped off the festivities with ice cream and coffee service from Van Leeuwen.

In my eyes our wedding was a complete success. We were married by my brother, who was ordained for the occasion, and my now husband wrote our ceremony and vows. All of the signage and invitations were personally designed by me to fit the feel and tone of our occasion. The day exceeded all of my expectations, from the amazing flowers my sister-in-law arranged to photobooth pictures with my newly official in-laws. The fears that I had during the planning process, mainly of finding myself a bride at a stiff, exceedingly expensive, stuffy and simply “not me” wedding, were completely unwarranted. The event was a light-hearted and genuine way to celebrate the love and commitment of our relationship. From start to finish our wedding was completed with the love and help of our friends and families, we truly could not have done it without them all.
