Married at Brooklyn Winery in New York, Lindsay and Jesse’s wedding was fun, colourful and a perfect reflection of them. It wasn’t all smooth sailing, but you’d never know that to look at these beautiful pictures. The bride wore a striped dress by Hayley Paige and many pairs of custom glasses! They had paper flowers instead of real ones and a Rice Krispy cake in lieu of anything traditional.
“We decided to just do what we wanted”, began the bride. “We planned the wedding by ourselves with minimal input from friends and family. Any time we began to question our choices, we had to remind ourselves that we were doing it our way, regardless of expectations. We were largely inspired by one of our favorite artists out of Brooklyn, Marty Allen. Marty specializes in large format sock-puppet photography; his work has been a staple of our relationship, as each year we buy a new print from him at the Union Square holiday market. Our apartment is furnished with his colorful-imagination-turned-beautiful-art. We commissioned sock puppets of ourselves for the wedding, which were integral to the décor, featured prominently in our invitations, and proved to be a hit at the photo booth.”
