Heather and Brian were married at The Green Building in Brooklyn, N.Y. on August 31. Heather looked stunning in a lace fit-and-flare gown with a sweetheart neckline and a bejeweled sash. She wore her long locks down and curly, and carried a soft bouquet of bouquet of ivory roses, veronica, seeded eucalyptus, dusty miller, and silver brunia berries. Her ‘maids donned floor-length dark gray chiffon gowns with varying necklines and carried bouquets of baby’s breath. The groom and his men opted for gray suits with dark neck ties. “We fell in love with The Green Building for its effortlessly beautiful interior and the vintage flair,” Heather said of the location, “The Green Building was previously a brass foundry and has beautiful original brick walls, exposed beam ceilings, gold chandeliers, and even a back speakeasy room.” The pair tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in front of nearly 100 family members and friends who sat in gold chiavari chairs. The couple exchanged vows in front of white drapery and hanging string lights. The rabbi read the vows the couple had written to each other, which were deeply meaningful for both of them. “I am Jewish and Brian Protestant, so we decided to fuse our backgrounds by incorporating an Irish hand-fasting and a stomping of the glass, both beautiful traditions and incredibly sentimental,” Heather said of the ceremony. A cocktail hour followed under a tented outdoor space at the venue. Guests ate antipasti and sushi appetizers and sipped on 20’s-themed cocktails. A reception followed inside where guests found their assigned seats at an escort table covered in moss, baby’s breath, flowers, and mercury candles. They sat at long banquet tables featuring tall gold floral vases and gold place settings. Photos of their parents were displayed and guests left the couple notes on vintage post cards. Aside from dancing, friends and family members enjoyed the photo booth and complimentary cigars. Guests indulged in a three-tier white cake adorned with flowers, as well as a food truck featuring late-night waffle treats. Each guest was given a small bottle of whiskey as a favor. Heather’s wedding mantra? “No matter how careful you plan, something will go wrong. That’s life in general,” she said.

Linda and Mike were married at St. Vincent de Paul Church, followed by a reception at the Hyatt Regency Chicago in Chicago, Ill. on May 24. The bride looked flawless in a ruffled mermaid gown with a ruched bodice and a soft wavy ‘do. She carried a clean bouquet of white peonies and her ‘maids donned blush strapless chiffon gowns. They carried bouquets featuring  ivory roses, hypericum berries, dusty miller, and eucalyptus. The groom and his men donned classic black tuxedos. The couple’s love for the city of Chicago was their wedding day inspiration. “We both love Chicago so much…so we wanted it to be a very romantic Chicago theme. We let the traditional and classic colors, feel do all the work,” Linda explained. The pair exchanged vows in front of 200 family members and friends in a traditional ceremony. Afterwards, cocktail hour followed on the terrace at the Hyatt Regency. The couple then made a grand entrance into the ballroom where they were presented as husband and wife, right as the curtains rose up and the city lights flooded in through the floor-to-ceiling windows. Their welcome table featured family wedding photos, a small wooden box for letters and cards, and mercury glass votive candles. Guests sat at round tables with white linens and gold chiavari chairs. Each table featured a tall green and white floral centerpiece and Chicago-themed table numbers, which were named for iconic city spots. The guests enjoyed the dinner and the band, and ended the night indulging in a classic buttercream cake with a sparkly monogrammed topper. Linda advises couples to prepare for the unexpected, but not to let it worry you. “Don’t stress beforehand about every detail that can go wrong. Something will go wrong,” she said. “And you won’t notice it. Remember the day is about you and your groom and that is all that matters.” See the full board here.
