Simple Brooklyn Wedding

Blair and Rie got married for the third and final time at St. Valentino Pier in Red Hook Brooklyn. No – its not what it sounds like … they actually were legally wed at City Hall in NYC last year, followed by a traditional Japanese ceremony in Japan earlier this year – this was the party for the American crew. This Simple Brooklyn wedding was captured by Oh, Darling. You can see more of this New York wedding in the full gallery by clicking here.

Here are some words from the bride:
“We were very lucky to have some talented friends help us out. Our wedding invitations were designed and printed by our friend Michael. The wedding cake was created by my friend Yoshie, who is a professional pastry chef. I especially want to thank to Kyoko, who is my best friend from high school. She made the bouquet, boutonnieres, and all the flowers at the tables.

She and her boyfriend Ben run a small business producing the sugar boxes that we chose as our wedding favors ( I can not imagine our wedding without her! Kyoko and I went to flower district in the city two days before the wedding, and bought a bunch of flowers. We saved a lot of money doing that by ourselves. I found a beautiful vintage lace ribbon at Brooklyn Flea, and wrapped it around the bouquet.

The animal puppets were bought on Etsy and used in place of table numbers. We created the seating chart by scanning in the drawings of the animals included on their packaging. Then printed them out on shipping tags we got from Staples. We soaked them in coffee to add a bit of an aged feel to them. We were preparing our wedding right through the night before our wedding day. It’s now a good memory, but we actually went to Kinko’s late the night before the wedding to finish things up!”

    Hello my fiance and i are getting married this year in June. We came across your wedding site and was inspired by the animal escorts. We are having our wedding at a barn in Hawaii. We were wondering where you guys purchased the animal escorts… The animals are adorable, would like to find out where you got them . Please let us know!

  3. […] Il y a des exceptions aux pièces montées bien réalisées, avec coupette de champ’ pour faire glisser tout ça mais dans l’ensemble, je ne suis pas fan, l’Amoureux non plus et il vaut mieux que nous passions notre tout pour ce dessert, ce jour doit être à notre image alors autant ne pas se forcer à manger des choses que l’on aime pas ! Je trouve par contre magnifique les gâteaux à l’américaine avec pâte à sucre et/ou crème au beurre, bien que ce soit à mon sens bien trop sucré et bien trop lourd après un repas ils sont juste très beaux à regarder. Nous avions craquer pour une pièce montée de macarons qui s’ils sont bien réalisés seront parfaits ! Image Source […]
