This full of life Wedding was captured by Robert Carlo Photography on a spring day in Brooklyn. The bride, a Soprano in the Metropolitan Opera www.metopera.org shined in a Tea length Wedding dress. Bespoke British Designer House of Mooshki created this look.
The lady crew got the bride ready for the big day at the Nu Hotel located in the Boerum Hill section of Brooklyn. The groom, a chemical engineer, and his guys waited patiently for the big reveal. When the time finally came, you can see the joy and love that these newlyweds clearly have for one another.
The bridal party then moved to Deity Brooklyn Wedding Venue. From the bride “Full disclosure: my Husband gets all the credit in finding Deity! (I get all the credit for the rest of the wedding!) When we looked at the venue in October, I knew this was the perfect place for our wedding, matching our vibe as a couple. Once inside, the exposed brick, the beautiful lighted tree, the candles, and multi-level experience made for a space that required minimal embellishment. Our flower budget and personal touches were therefore very modest, and only added to the beautiful aesthetic of the venue. Each portion of the night is clearly ingrained in our memories due to the unique three-level layout. Our guests loved feeling like they were experiencing four different events in one, all with a common thread.”
The bride’s bouquet as well as the centerpieces were designed by Opalia Flowers. Featuring peonies, the flower of the season, the dinner tables were also dressed with personalized table singage. The sweetheart table highlighted the married pair with marquee signs of their first initial.
Cocktail hour with hors d’oeuvres consisted of a specialty cocktail of a Manhattan, straight up. Guests nibbled on kobe beef sliders, jerk chicken sliders, and scallop & shrimp ceviche. For the family-style dinner, they feasted on braised, boneless short ribs, crispy brussel sprouts, and truffle mashed potatoes. From the bride “Our guests still comment on how much they loved the food! Don’t miss the truffled potatoes or the sliders!”
The party then moved into the night where the crazy fun began! The couple cut their One Girl Cookie wedding cake, covered in fresh peonies. The bride surprised her new husband with a groom’s cake decorated with a Jamaican Flag, a tribute to his heritage.
The guests and hosts enjoyed the sparkly sequined photo booth provided by Hipstr Photo Booth. DJ Trauma, the house DJ of Deity Wedding Venue was also treated to a surprise, being his birthday. The Bride who is in 19 different operas this season at the Metropolitan Opera, serenaded the birthday boy and presented him with a cake. The bride said “DJ Trauma kept our guests grinding on the dance floor all night long, peppering our requests with his selections, enhancing the party atmosphere. We were in shock when he announced it was the last song!”
