From the bride:
Jon and I started dating long distance, but our relationship flourished when we decided to be together in Brooklyn, New York. While we shared friends in Chicago and I had familial ties to Richmond, VA, New York had to be the place we said, “I do.” Our goal was to create a day with our close family and friends that allowed us to be present of mind, remembering each moment and why we’re taking this step in our relationship. What better way to connote that intention then by sharing one of our favorite meals overlooking the city that brought us together. The Wythe captured our aesthetic and energy as a couple and the boozy brunch added to the moody weather day, making it altogether perfect. When it comes to my bridal style, I didn’t want to feel artificial and calculated. Rather, I wanted to feel classic, relaxed and elegant with a little bit of sass and cheekiness. A blush dress with flowing lines allowed me to experiment with different accessories and create a look all my own.
