Artsy Brooklyn Real Wedding by Katie Osgood
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

What a treat it is to feature the wedding of a couple of very talented creative types…  Clara and Dave went all out designing and creating a funky, artistic wedding in Brooklyn that was totally, perfectly them.  After looking at venues that were not quite their style, Clara and Dave found the Galapagos Art Space and fell in love.  Armed with two pantone colors, Clara began the search for the perfect papers, inks, stamps, flowers, and accessories that would become the expression of both her and Dave’s vision. The DIY element of this wedding is so impressive; we’re delighted to share this unique set of photos by Katie Osgood Photography!

Clara, a graphic designer by trade, dreamed up an entire suite of modern paper goods;  she also made the boutonnieres and bow-ties, and with a little help from a good friend, executed the rest of the florals. We just love the awesome candy apple red that gave this modern, urban wedding a distinctive look.

Dave and his pals did the full reception setup the morning of, before fancying up in suits and Clara’s handmade bow-ties!  Dave also designed and set up a DIY photo booth- they used their iMac to capture, frame and print photo booth favors for guests to take home.

The ceremony took place in front of the scenic Brooklyn Bridge (and their addition of colorful balloons and paper flowers), in Brooklyn Bridge Park.  Perfectly worded and officiated by their dear friend/roommate/florist extraordinaire, the ceremony was extra special- filled with laughter and tears.

After enjoying the breeze on an oddly warm October day in New York, everyone headed over to the Galapagos Art Space for the party!  Even the guestbook was brilliantly thought up-  they created a large puzzle out of one of their engagement photos.  Friends and family wrote well wishes on the backs of the pieces, and the kids had a blast piecing it together at the reception.

The gem that is the Galapagos Art Space is a rockin’ party spot.  Guests danced under colorful lanterns, and came back to Earth for an incredible piece of Lady M Confections cake and a scoop of organic ice cream from the Blue Marble Ice Cream cart.  All this creativity has us sooo inspired!  Make sure to see the full spread of photos here.

    A particularly nice hat are made ​​of lace or silk scarves that are either wrapped over the head or worn as a headband. So you have the perfect hair accessory and a warm hat in one.

    Love the red heels and the puzzle idea. We got ours from The Missing Piece Puzzle Company and it was fun and interactive. Looks like they had a blast at this wedding! That’s how it should be….
