Before we dive into this low key Brooklyn wedding, we must mention that there are so many more interesting and incredibly unique photographs in the full wedding gallery. Lev Kuperman Photography captured some really beautiful photographs of Andrea and Joaquin’s Brooklyn wedding that we really think you will love.
From the start of wedding planning, Andrea and Joaquin knew that they wanted to keep the feeling of the wedding very low key, and very “Brooklyn”. They were instantly drawn to the laid back and vintage-y vibe that reBar offered. This reclaimed factory loft space with terra cotta barrel-vaulted ceilings, stately columns, detailed iron and steel gates was exactly what they were looking for.
From the bride…
From the start of wedding planning, we knew that keeping the feeling of the wedding very low key, and very “Brooklyn” was important to us. When we were looking at venues we were instantly drawn to the laid back and vintage-y vibe that reBar had with its wrought iron gates and almost speak easy feeling bar. This set the tone for the rest of our decor such as our vintage frames re-purposed for chalkboards, 1930s typewriter for our guestbook, and vintage books for table decor. We had mason jars with candles sparkling everywhere and apothecary jars of all sizes and shapes for flowers. Our florist, Emily Thompson, captured the neutral pallette and texture that we were going for with beautiful cafe au lait dahlias.
As Joaquin is from Argentina we wanted to incorporate some of his culture into the celebration. Our signature cocktails had tags we made that said “love is sweet” and “El Amor es dulce”. Our dessert table featured alfajores, an Argentine cookie, sitting beside a chalkboard with “A Taste of Buenos Aires’. Along with the alfajores we had NY cheesecake from Junior’s with a sign for “A Taste of Brooklyn” and a tower of cupcakes. As the party progressed, we broke out the “confetti” a tradition in Argentina of passing around funny hats, masks, glasses,etc. This was a big hit and worked great as we married on Halloween weekend.

how it works
We tested out how to block hotel room guests for our wedding in Hawaii. Yes that is us below looking amazing in our BHLDN gown. Hahaha we wish! That is from WeddingWire’s Instagram, who you should follow for some good #wedinspo. Now … read on to see how easy it was to block hotel rooms for our guests for our dream Hawaiian wedding.
First step is to enter your destination, dates, and basic personal information. We received 3 bids that we could compare and identify. By the way, WeddingWire guarantees the lowest block rate from the largest selection of hotels. You know we like a good deal.
this is soooo easy
After you review your bids, you can use the contact hotel, or request call buttons located within each bid to contact the hotels that you are interested, and use the decline bid for the hotels you aren’t. So easy! If you love the hotel, but don’t love the bid hit the decline button to request a better offer from the hotel.
Go ahead, test it here. Don’t worry you won’t be contacted by anyone. See if it is cheaper than what you have been researching elsewhere, and let us know what you think.
