Chloe and Thomas’ delightful and intimate urban wedding held in Brooklyn, New York is definitely what ol’ Alicia was singing about – a total dream made last October in that concrete jungle. Their day was laidback but not lacking, gritty but über-romantic.
The couple first met for an emotional first look near the the Brooklyn Bridge (our heart!) Chloe looks gorgeous in her midi-length toffee-coloured silk dress and red lip, and Thomas looked equally as cool and effortless in a two-piece Indochino suit. They then stopped to have photos taken with their family, who’d united from everywhere from Florida to California to unite for the day! Leslie Swan, their photographer, explains, “On top of that, Chloe and Thomas had spent a year apart while Chloe was working on her phD abroad, so it was really an incredible gathering.”
The ceremony and reception brunch were both held in Aurora, an Italian restaurant in Williamsburg with a magical ivy-covered terrace. Guests sat underneath beautiful beam detailing and industrial lighting as Chloe and Thomas walked down the aisle together hand-in-hand (which we love!) After the ceremony and whilst cocktails were served inside amongst cosy embraces, the leafy covered garden was transformed into the reception with long trestle tables adorned with simple big-headed blooms in bottles, arranged by Molly Oliver Flowers. Guests were treated to a personalised cocktail favour from Chloe and Thomas. “We designed, printed and put together our wedding favours, a copy of the recipe to our signature cocktail (a variation of an Americano) with two bottles of Underberg tied to it. We like Amaro and bitter liqueurs and this was a great way to share that.”
