Every time I see this wedding, I keep thinking how quintessentially Brooklyn it is…
What a classic portrait!

A couple after my own heart…Chad and I are transplants to Brooklyn and for our wedding wanted nothing but to have all our relatives love it as much as we did!
I’m from Florida and Colin is from Michigan, but Brooklyn is where we have “nested.” It was extremely important to us to bring our closest friends and family to the place we both call home for our wedding day. We stumbled upon MyMoon which was only 11 blocks from our home and it was everything we wanted in a venue – urban with a hint of romance, an outdoor space and plenty of room for dancing (including a specially choreographed line dance from mother of the bride, an avid line dancer)! Most of the elements were DIY and it brought a more personal touch to a wedding that focused on family, friends, love and overall good times! We can honestly say, as many couple before us, it was the best day of our lives!

Suzanne & Paul did New York City up right with their wedding…ceremony up at a stylish hotel rooftop, and the reception at a stylish eatery!
We tied the knot with our current hometown and favorite city as backdrop at the Cooper Square Hotel. We couldn’t have asked for anything more. The penthouse space with its overwhelming views of downtown Manhattan was the perfect vessel for our moving ceremony officiated by a friend ordained for the wedding. Our intimate group of 98 then paraded three blocks to Butter restaurant for a family-style feast by the amazing chef Alex Guarnaschelli. Tiny birch logs I sanded by hand and stamped with guests’ names served as placecards, and tapered candles and vintage wine glasses culled from thrift stores worked as simple centerpieces. The evening unfolded with one beautiful memory after another as the laughter, heartfelt words and exuberant dancing went on late into the night. Highlights included a surprise groom’s cake shaped like our dog Milo jumping out a present, and a sweet ending when our party tumbled into the street where an ice cream truck provided by our friends at Heartsrevolution awaited.
