Autumnal Brooklyn Wedding Inspired by 60s style, 70s music…. And Frankenstein!

Brittany and J.D. wanted their autumn wedding to be a celebration of all the things that they love together, while keeping everything aesthetically cohesive and spending as little as feasibly possible!

“As a designer, I realise that a big mish-mash of seemingly unrelated things could go very badly, very quickly,” explained Brittany, “so it was important that the aesthetics of the things we chose were kept simple, bright and bold. I designed our save the dates and invitations with a romantic and a gritty rose pattern, with pops of graphic, off-red text blocks. I kind of shaped everything around that design while planning to make sure everything looked in place.”

It was also important to them that their wedding was as DIY and Brooklyn-based as possible. They were married at Bat Haus, a boutique event space in the borough. Their wedding rings were from Brooklyn-based Catbird, in fact all of their vendors were from Brooklyn as well. They hired Brittany’s college friend for the photography and J.D.’s longtime friend officiated the ceremony. “We wanted our wedding to be as intimate and fun as possible, and didn’t really want any strangers! Plus, we have a ton of super talented friends, so we wanted to incorporate everyone. I think that made the day and planning process really special and unique to us.”

A Rock n Roll Bride’s Dream Wedding with DIY, Dogs & a Military Edge

Dan and Maddie spent two years planning for their August 2019 wedding, which enabled them to personalise their day throughout the planning process.

All in all they put their focus of crafting a day that was unique to them, and to ensure their guests were well fed and well entertained! 

“Rock n Roll Bride was a huge inspiration for our day,” explained Maddie. “All the different weddings on the blog showed us we could do things our way, and didn’t have to stick to one theme or idea if we didn’t want to! I ended up with the idea of styling the barn venue we hired in different ways to create different themed areas to suit different sides of our personalities. Overall we wanted a celebration of ourselves and our relationship. And for everyone to have a good time!”

Inspired by (what else?!) their own style and personalities, Sue and Ian wanted their wedding to feel eccentric, colourful and full of energy. They chose a our country house venue and also included their love of birds, the bride’s own pigeons and the groom’s blue bird tattoo in particular! The main goal for the day was for them to just relax and catch up with all their favourite people.

Another unique aspect to their day was that because Ian is deaf, they chose not to have any speeches or a DJ.

They met in 2010 when she was dating someone else, but Rachel and Zac finally got together when that relationship ended in 2012. Living in Los Angeles they would go to bars together with mutual friends and eventually they made it official! For their June 2019 nuptials they decided on a destination wedding in Hawaii. The day was held at Paliku Gardens at Kualoa Ranch, a beautiful location with the most stunning panoramic views of the mountains and ocean.

“We felt the secluded location was unique because it was situated between a mountain range
and an ocean”, explained the bride. “Without much cell phone service, our guests were able to fully engage with one another without the distraction of social media. We also did not have groomsmen or bridesmaids, a cake, or a couple of other more traditional things that weddings have. We wanted it to feel special, but also casual.”
