As with any form of art, wedding photography is very subjective. Every photographer has a unique style, and Whyman Studios is no different.
Clean lines. Dramatic angles. Crisp lighting. This wedding has it.
Her boquet by Mimosa Floral is absolutely on point, and MyMoon has to be one of the most stunning East Coast venues I have seen. Enjoy this wonderful wedding story with me today, as we peek into her day of tying the knot in Brooklyn.
Bo told me a bit more about her beautiful day… “We were engaged for just about 2 years – what I thought would be plenty of time to plan a wedding. Being a lifelong procrastinator, I have accepted that I am most productive at the last minute. I never really chose a theme but my vision for this December wedding was to create a feeling of rustic warmth and coziness in the city. Over the 2 years, I made small decisions adding details that eventually came together beautifully. Inspired by ideas I had seen in wedding magazines and websites, I took on several “DIY” projects, including the table numbers, succulent escort cards and a scrapbook for display to personalize the space.”
“To contrast the dark venue, I wanted to keep the flowers light and simple with small arrangements of cream and light pink colored flowers. And of course, glitter. The bridesmaids wore rose-gold sequined dresses and our florist added hints of gold glitter throughout (dipped mason jars, dusted baby’s breath, etc). The men wore heavy oatmeal-colored knit (and warm!) sweaters on top of midnight navy pants for a more casual but clean look. We were so happy with the way everything came together.”
“When choosing from the many wedding venues in NYC, Tim and I searched for a place that would be unique and comfortably accommodate a 100-guest wedding. We chose MyMoon in Williamsburg because we loved the exposed brick, high ceilings with wood beams and overall feeling of a repurposed industrial building.”
What makes you an On the Go Bride?
My now husband and I are both resident physicians. He is training in general surgery and I am training in pediatric neurology. Our hours change every week and can be unpredictable. It is also rare that we both get a weekend off together so we really appreciate the times when we do!
What did you find most challenging about planning your wedding as an On the Go Bride?
Planning a wedding from a distance was harder than I anticipated! We planned our wedding from Rochester, which is about a 5-6 hour drive to NYC. We missed out on some of the best parts of planning a wedding like cake tasting!
What made the wedding planning process easier or helped save you time?
Having a timeline (with some flexibility built in if you know you’re the type to fall behind like I am) so that we knew what we had left to do.
What advice would you give to bride’s trying to plan their weddings while working?
Pace yourself but take advantage of any large gaps of free time! You want to be able to enjoy planning your wedding, rather than be stressed out.
What special things or moments between you and your husband did you include in your wedding?
We had our wedding in my hometown, Brooklyn. I made a photoalbum scrapbook chronicling some of our favorite memories for guests to flip through. Next to it, we left a blank photoalbum and instant cameras so that people could fill it up with memories from our wedding right then and there!
What was your favorite memory from your wedding day?
His vows. I will never forget his sweet words and how loved he made me feel.
