Here’s a very special wedding that I can’t wait to share with you. Christina and Jason are serious DIY-ers and this wedding was both beautiful and totally unique to them. Christina and Jason married on September 19 of this year at the Brooklyn Historical Society. Christina and Jason met through  friends- although Jason’s version is that he won a date with Christina in a bet. Love that.

There are so many things that I love about Christina and Jason’s wedding, but I’ll let Christina give you the details herself…

From the bride… The Brooklyn Historical Society was our backup choice when our original space closed, but after seeing the library I knew it would be perfect. Plus it was only a few blocks from our apartment so it really allowed us to show off our neighborhood to all our guests, as did the grill out we had for all the out-of-towners the afternoon before on our roof deck overlooking Manhattan.

From the bride… We tried to make our wedding as personal as possible by including our friends and family during the planning and big day as well as adding personal touches to the ceremony and reception. Save-the-Dates, Invitations, Escort Cards, Menu wraps, Signs, Cake topper, Wedding Ceremony Musicians/Speakers/Officiant, Biscotti, Cupcakes, Mojitos: made by us, friends, and family. Also the favors were little honey jars with honey from Jason’s mom’s farm. Our rings were made by Jason’s sister friend, my engagement ring is a black pearl.



I love all of the DIY that went into this wedding. So beautiful.Check out these amazing amazing table numbers too. Fitting for their venue, and absolutely elegant.

From the bride…   The song my dad and I danced to, Una Noite, a Spanish waltz, was the same song my grandmother used to play in Cuba to let my grandfather (then her neighbor) know it was a good time to come visit. When the ceremony recessional song (Black Eyed Peas: I Got a Feeling) was played later in the night and Jason and I were dancing surrounded by all our friends and family. That was the best part of the day.

And her advice to other brides (and grooms out there)… Relax and enjoy the process, at the end of the day you just want to enjoy a wonderful ceremony and party with your new hubby. Jason’s advice to grooms-to be is just be available 🙂

This super cute wedding is from the super talented  Cindy Johnson, you might remember her from the fabulous shots she took at Rocco & Larah’s Destination wedding in Nicaragua. This totally fab wedding has THREE… count ’em three, outfit changes. Gotta love a bride with options. Gina and Ryan married at 632 on Hudson in New York City, on October 3, 2009.

Gina and Ryan wanted their day to be very personal and unique to them. To make sure that happened, they put a lot of thought into the details. (I love a detail oriented bride.) Their officiant was the groom’s best friend, who also introduced them. The brides’ sister read a poem during the ceremony; a poem that the groom had written for his bride. Too cute. Their first dance was sung by a friend, another friend who is a belly dancer performed, and a cousin acted as MC for the night. The couple framed their parents wedding photos and placed them on display in one of the rooms at the venue, and each guest was gifted with hand-written cards and hand-made chocolate bonbons as favors. Now, if that doesn’t say thank you I don’t know what does. And if that wasn’t enough, the couple made sure to personally thank, and bid farewell to each and every guest at the door at the end of the night.

This truly is a very beautiful, and very personal wedding, with attention to every detail, including a very special cake, from Lauri Ditunno of NYC’s The Cake Alchemy– also one of WE TV’s featured cake decorators on Amazing Wedding Cakes! How much more fabulous can you get!?

Shoes...

From the bride…

“I wore a wedding dress, an Indian lengha, and a tailor-made Western party-wear. To be honest, I just couldn’t decide on what to wear! I mean when else are you the center of attention?!”

Dress  number one...

From the bride…

“It was most important for the wedding to be personal, warm and fun.  We wanted the wedding to resemble a cocktail party at home with close family and friends. It was a wonderful night. Ryand and I had a great time with everyone, and the small number of guests enabled us to socialize with all. Our caterer, Marcey Brownstein took care of all the details. They have a very professional and hospitable staff, and a brilliant chef!”

From the beautiful bride…

“Walking down the staircase of 632 Hudson.  It was quite special because all my friends and family were lined up along the walk.”

Guests...

Bridal Silhouette...

From the bride…

“I am Japanese/Indian. My mother suggested that Indian bridal wear is more festive and colorful than Japanese, so I went with that. Ryan matched me with a white Nehru suit for the Indian portion, and a tux for the Western.”

Reception...

From the bride…

“My former chef, Lauri Ditunno of Cake Alchemy, gifted us the “Swan Cake”. She had remembered everything I like from when I worked with her; pulled sugar, marbleized fondant, rose sugar flowers, individual cakes for each guest, stracciatella cake with passion fruit butter cream. The cake was a surprise to us, and surprised we were! It was amazing. Lauri has a TV show called Amazing Wedding Cakes on the WE Network, so the cake will be featured in the next season. It will be a good memory for us.”
