I’ve been a big fan of Weddings By Two for quite some time now, so I was thrilled to receive an email from Laura recently with a bunch of gorgeous images from John and Christina’s wedding. I think it was the bride’s fabulous vintage dress which had me at hello…
From the moment we were engaged, John and I knew we would want a celebration (more than ceremony). We share a deep love for Brooklyn and knew we wanted to have it in our favorite borough. John is a Graphic Designer and lover of all things urban design and font-like. I live a double life as web designer by day, and exhibiting paper/installation artist by heart. We did not have a large budget, and the search lead us to a lovely Brownstone venue that reflected our love for old Brooklyn. However, even though we are both creative people, neither of us seemed inspired nor motivated enough during the planning.
Three months before our wedding, we attended a New Years Eve party at an artist loft that three friends had recently started renting. It was a huge, but cozy, space with large skylights and a rooftop deck. At one point during the party, John turned to me and suggested that we have the wedding there. I looked around the room, imagined a bunch of paper lanterns and immediately agreed. Luckily, our friends agreed…
Stay tuned for Part II coming up next!

Weathered wood and silk. Historic stone and jewel-tone flowers. All complete contrasts, and yet, when pulled together, all completely amazing.
