I’m in a New York state of mind today for obvious reasons. And after coming off a trip to sight-see at Fashion Week, I have a larger than usual soft spot, for my hometown and its peeps. So when I saw Shannon and Michael’s Brooklyn Winery wedding from L&L Style Photography, well I remembered why I love this city so much! The people! Full of style, fun, class, cool kicks, and creativity, New York folks are just awesome! I mean have you ever seen a bride rock a striped cardi with patches better? So when two cool cats plan a dazzling and stress-free DIY wedding from 2000 miles away that’s full of spontaneous moments, super style, and tambourines- I’m pretty sure you’ll find hard to disagree that this this NYC wedding meets the high standard of awesome I’m come to know and love.
In true NY collabo style, this wedding wonder was achieved with a little help from your friends including a DIY pre-wedding dinner! From the Bride:
Our main goal for our wedding was to have fun! Thankfully, we are blessed to be surrounded by amazing friends and family who were more than willing to help make our wedding the best day ever! My sister-in-law designed our invitations, signage and the stickers for our tambourines and party favors. My mother-in-law printed them. I hauled a huge suitcase full of mason jars and half finished projects across the country. So, instead of a rehearsal dinner, my parents threw us a pizza/last minute prep party with our close friends and family. Each person contributed in everything from making props for the photo booth, putting together our guest book, creating chalkboard signs, hot gluing ribbons on the flower girl basket to hemming my petticoat.
Now if this wedding doesn’t give you peek into the fun-filled and style-soaked community that is New York, I don’t know what will. From their choice of venue at the Brooklyn Winery(a must visit, BTW) to the tasty treats both streetside and inside, to the tambourine slammin’, karoake singin’, party filled goodness this gallery from L&L Style Photography has once again turned me into a wedding adulterer. (Uuughh!! Twice in the same day! I’d be ashamed if it didn’t feel so good to share them all!) Well, nevertheless, I can’t thank L&L Style Photography for so brilliantly capturing this truly New York style wedding and sharing it with us. Congratulations Shannon and Michael! Happy soon to be first anniversary!
