A Spring Wedding at Weylin B. Seymour in Brooklyn, NY

( Disclaimer: I am finally getting back to blogging. I love being able to share our past weddings with you and each one is so special to me. So without further adieu and in no particular order, I give you our weddings of 2015 and 2016. )

I met Lauren and Jamie at Jamie’s sister’s wedding very quickly and immediately knew that I would love to work with them. I was so excited when she reached out and even more excited when she mentioned that they were looking into this unique, glamorous and cool “new” venue in Brooklyn. Weylin B. Seymour aka Williamsburg Savings Bank is just as it sounds a former bank built in 1875 and after a jaw-dropping restoration has become a sought after venue for weddings, events and even TV and movie productions. The details of this space are impeccable and there was inspiration around every turn from the wallpaper, metal work and the spectacular dome. All photos courtesy of Christina Lilly Photography.


Lauren’s style is a bit more laid-back and we wanted to honor the opulence of this space but also make it their own. I feel like we did a great job mixing the styles. We assembled a group of some of our favorite vendors to bring this vision to life. Below are the stationary details that Mary Kate Moon brought to life. We used a sketch of the venue by etsy artist, Caitlin Joyce, a Brooklyn native, with special calligraphy touches. We just love this postcard Save the Date.


Lauren and Jamie’s invitation was classic but with a few personalized details. Mary Kate created a custom monogram for them which we turned into a wax seal. My favorite detail is that we recreated the wallpaper from the venue to create their envelope liners. I just love these little surprises!



Some more fun details were the menus inspired by the architecture of the building and the escort cards with gold charms that honor the era.

The wedding was held in late April so Lauren was able to pick from some of the best in-season varieties and Anne at Blade Floral knocked it out of the park!  I love how we decided to have the bridesmaids carry sweet bouquets of lilacs to match their Jenny Yoo dresses and Lauren’s peony, ranunculus, garden rose, sweet pea filled bridal bouquet.

Inside the Main Rotunda, guests’ tables with a mix of round and long clad in navy “burlap” linens showcased the three varieties of centerpieces. Low compotes, tall vases of camellia leaves and custom gold cases with overflowing florals were the stars of the show. Just see for yourself!

Below are some more of our favorite details and moments from the day. This wedding was a bit of a departure of our whimsical style but I love a good challenge. I enjoyed every second of working at this venue especially because the staff (shout out to Nadya) at WBS and at Abigail Kirsch Catering were a gem to work with. It makes all the difference- trust me!



Just look at the pure joy on their faces! This is why I do what I do!
