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.

Real Brooklyn wedding: Andrea + Josh

I can’t even believe how adorable and simply beautiful the tasseled huppah came out!  The ultimate DIY gift from friends of the groom…and such a great idea to boot!

 

Andrea and Josh wanted their wedding to be a shared event where the bride and groom were as much the focus as their family and friends, all joining together in celebration of their marriage. To do this, they asked their guests to participate in a variety of ways throughout the wedding, making it a perfectly homespun and crafty Brooklyn affair.

In preparation, family members helped make the luminaries and the signing quilt, while the groom’s architect friends designed and built a huppah (a Jewish wedding ceremony canopy), topped with over 100 handmade strung paper tassels.

When the day of the wedding arrived it was a perfectly autumn afternoon: 65-degrees and sunny with leaves taking hues of deep green, yellow and fiery red. The ceremony was outdoors on Prospect Park’s Long Meadow starting at 1pm, and was introduced by the bride’s two friends as the fluitist and officiant. With the park’s lawns and trees as their backdrop, Andrea and Josh read each other vows as the huppah’s tassels swayed in the breeze. Sharing the park with their guests was important to Andrea and Josh since they spent much of their time there, relaxing on the weekends and running and biking before work. So having a kids soccer game going on next to the ceremony was a perfect complement, if not an adorable forecast of Andrea & Josh’s possible future: someday brining their own children to the park.

After the ceremony guests were invited to a reception held in the Picnic House, a lodge with large windows overlooking the Long Meadow. Guests were treated to a variety of homemade beers crafted by the bride’s father and a series of passed hors d’oeuvres, starting with savory and ending with sweet. Dessert was highlighted by homemade pies made by the bride’s family. The afternoon was filled with laughs, conversation and dancing while a slideshow featuring family photos of the bride and groom as kids played in the corner, and a jazz trio led by the groom’s step-brother carried guests through the afternoon. At sunset, Andrea and Josh were whisked away by a pedi-cab, driven from the park and through Brooklyn’s Grand Army Plaza as passers-by wished them congratulations, sending them into the night.
