Isn’t a gorgeous wedding the best way to start off the week? I sure think so! Jeni and Pat have amazing style and pulled off the coolest foodie wedding!
Patrick and I had just returned from a three month European “sabbatical” when we were surprised by a little bun in the oven! We decided to wait to have a proper wedding so that our little guy could be there to share in the festivities too. However, having a baby and a wedding in one year would prove to be challenging (read: expensive), not to mention having them both in New York (read: SUPER, ridiculously expensive). So, we had to set our financial priorities straight – food, booze, photos and music, in that order.
Luckily, my husband the chef has some wonderful friends at No.7 restaurant who generously hosted both the ceremony and the reception. One of my bridesmaids got herself ordained and gave the most intimate, beautiful reading that I could have ever imagined. I didn’t plan on a theme, but we went with lots of vintage accessories and homemade accouterments. The whole wedding felt like a prohibition era party – lots of dancing and wild abandon. With the tireless help of my maid of honor and some great friends, Patrick and I had the most fun, stress-free wedding (even with an infant in tow).

This sweet Brooklyn wedding really has the colorful details down pat…congrats Sarah and Reed!
The wedding was completely planned and executed by ourselves and close friends. All the decorations were handmade out of paper that was hand silkscreened with 3 mantras: Love Each Other, Promise Each Other and Celebrate Each Other. We have long been designers and own a local screen printing collective so hand making our wedding was a wonderful project we worked on together. Our closest friend, Ashley Blanch, hand made 15 beautiful pies in place of a wedding cake. The ceremony was at Grand Ferry Park on the East River – so guests had views of the 3 Brooklyn bridges during our ceremony. The reception was at Enid’s – a wonderful space that allowed us to install our wedding in perfect harmony with the existing decor. The bridesmaids and groomsmen chose their dresses and ties based on the paper/print color palette for the decorations. All the guests managed to dress in color as well! We rode a tandem bicycle from the ceremony to the reception as we are both avid bicyclists.
