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.

Caroline and Sanket were married at Congress Park in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. followed by a reception at Canfield Casino on June 29. The couple had two ceremonies at the park, the first one being a traditional Indian ceremony. The bride looked radiant in a mint, pink, and gold lehenga and donned classic curls for the affair. The groom looked dapper in a white sherwani featuring red, gold, and mint embroidery. The groom and his family danced underneath a red umbrella as part of his entrance to the ceremony. They were married under a big structure featuring mint and hot pink draping and stunning floral arrangements. The bride and groom sat in red velvet chairs surrounded by their family in gold chiavari chairs. “Despite the heat, I really enjoyed the Indian ceremony,” Caroline said. “It is hard to appreciate all the details of the ceremony — the colors, smells, sounds– unless you’re right there in it.” A traditional American ceremony followed, and the bride changed into an A-line gown featuring a beaded sweetheart bodice and a tulle skirt. She wore her hair in a delicate updo and carried pink peonies, garden roses, and succulents. Her ‘maids rocked long pink chiffon gowns with various necklines. After the second ceremony concluded, everyone moved to the Canfield Casino for the reception. The venue featured high ceilings and stained glass windows. The tables were decorated with bejeweled votive candles, mint and gold table numbers, and light pink compote vases filled with roses, peonies, and hydrangeas. The escort cards had a pink, blue, and gold pattern on them that was reminiscent of their invitation style. Guests ate and danced the night away, and indulged in a one-tier buttercream cake with a gold lasercut topper and adorned with flower petals. “Be unique and personalize your event to you and your partner– don’t compare your wedding to friends’ weddings or Pinterest,” Caroline said.

She carried a colorful bouquet of purple dinner plate dahlias, disianthus, and bupleurum. The groom looked dapper in a dark blue suit with a purple neck tie. The pair tied the knot in front of 80 guests in the garden at the museum. “We really wanted to have a small wedding of only our closest friends and family,” Taia said.

A reception followed inside which featured twinkling lights throughout the space. “Our focus was on having good food and drinks in a comfortable environment,” Taia said of the reception. The tables featured red floral arrangements and votive candles. The bride’s best advice? “Don’t make your own invitations unless you are having fewer than 50 people!” See the full board here.

Abbie and Jason were married at Housing Works Bookstore in New York, N.Y. on May 16. The bride looked fabulous in a lace gown with capped sleeves and a keyhole back. She wore her hair down and wavy, accessorizing with a birdcage veil and drop earrings. She carried a sweet bouquet of peonies, roses, and stock. The groom looked dapper in a fitted gray suit with a silver neck tie. In lieu of a dinner after they exchanged vows, the couple held a cocktail-style reception so that guests could mingle and not feel confined to one table. “We really wanted to do something different and unique, and not traditional,” Abbie said. Their vintage welcome table featured a birdcage where guests could drop off notes, an antique typewriter, a set of tiny wooden drawers, and white flowers. Guests danced to live music, enjoyed a mac ‘n cheese bar, as well as a cotton candy machine. “I thought our wedding was special and something that everyone will remember because we had a lot of fun surprises and unique details,” Abbie explained. Guests also participated in a fun photo booth and indulged in a four tier cake and mini rose cakes. Abbie surprised Jason with a waffle food truck for the end of the evening and guests received books that were chosen by the couple. “We didn’t conform to a traditional wedding, so it was a really unique and fun party that broke the norms,” Abbie said.
