Don’t you love Sarah and Kareem’s beautiful Brooklyn wedding?? There is such a timeless, New York feel with a little hint of whimsy. And this wedding just goes to show that you don’t have to have a huge budget to pull of a beautiful ceremony and reception. The bride and groom did almost everything themselves! So sweet…

Flowers: Lilac, Viburnum and Spirea in vintage blue Ball Jars (ebay) and an assortment of old beer & soda bottles from an antique store in PA.  Sarah and her mom arranged all of the flowers on our own, something they’ve done on occasion for other people’s events. For the bridal party bouquets, they re-used the flower arrangements from the Rehearsal Dinner the night before. Just a little florist tape and ribbon! Boutonnieres came from Opalia, in Brooklyn.

Dress: Blue by Enzoani from The White Gown in Brooklyn.  Sash and headpiece were made by a friend.

Suit: John Varvatos

Rings:  onestonenewyork on Etsy

Food & Pie: Bubby’s Brooklyn

Strings:  Anthology Strings, Brooklyn

Invites:  Lion in the Sun, Brooklyn

Photographer: Charlotte Jenks Lewis

Hair: Kate Hanley from Tommy Guns salon.

Hi Sarah! Your wedding is beautiful and I have the same idea to do lilacs ourselves for our May wedding up in Hudson Valley. Where did you purchase all the lilacs and did you find them for a good price? Thanks for your help!

I love this wedding! I’m really happy you posted this because I’ve been trying so hard to find pictures/wedding inspiration for a timeless city wedding with vintage touches! (all other “vintage/DIY” features are very rustic outdoors-y types, or city with 1950’s inspiration.) I’m having a city wedding in Chicago next summer- and I loved to see that it can all come together! Thanks again!
and congrats to the happy couple!

Love how they reused the flowers. Smart thinking! The hydrangea flower centerpieces are pretty, too!
