We love all of our clients, but it seems like every year, we have at least one couple that our entire staff falls completely in love with! This year it was Martine and Jake. They were so full of life, so silly, and fun, and they wanted a reception that was full of colorful elements that represented them. Martine was an elementary school Spanish teacher and they both adored South American culture, food, and decor. They wanted to incorporate these things as much as possible and bring in some tropical flair. We loved brainstorming with them about fun details. The wedding was photographed by Brent and Amanda of Millie Holloman Photography.
I typically love neutrals, but this might be one of my favorite bouquets ever!
Before the ceremony, Martine's class came to the venue for a picture. How cute!!
We had the pleasure of designing all of Martine and Jake's paper from the invitations to the programs.
Martine and Jake wanted an untraditional and colorful guest book, so we created a tree where guests could write messages on swatches of ribbon and tie them on the branches.
Ceremony and reception was held at the Brooklyn Arts Center.
We filled large yellow pots with coral bougainvillea...
and placed bowls of rose petals at the end of each row.
This is definitely the most colorful wedding we have ever done and probably the most color Brooklyn Arts has ever had! We strung paper banners from the ceiling and sewed custom colorful napkins.
Flowers were a combination of orchids, callas, pincushion protea, and tulips.
Umbrellas for the signature drink.
The couple wanted a coffee and tea station where guests could bag their own blends of South American teas and coffees.
Martine and Jake, you are one of the cutest couples ever. We had so much fun working with you!!
