A Midsummer Night's Dream at the Green Building

When it comes to events we love being inspired by the greats! In this case, the master of love and poetry himself, William Shakespeare and A Midsummer Night's Dream.  Alex and Nancy wanted a wedding that was inspired and romantic, and we worked to make their wedding dreams come true.  They loved the warmth and character found in the bricks and beams of the Green Building.  It was the perfect location for us to build upon the natural charm in order to create a day inspired by the romance and mysticism of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Magic and romance, cupid and fairies, and mystical gardens of abundance reigned in this inspired design.  A story on the nature of love, it is a fitting theme for a beautiful couple and their blossoming life together.

The theme of A Midsummer Night’s Dream was largely illustrated in the floral design.  We partnered with Mimosa Florals to dream up a design that was both abundant and garden-like.  Alex and Nancy said “I do” in front of a gorgeous backdrop of lush plants, wild greenery with soft tendrils floating down, and romantic florals in a range of pinks, reds, and maroons.  This vibe continued in the main space with green tendrils on the tables and hanging down throughout, along with dreamy florals brightening each table.  Real Food Catering delivered tasty treats and a delicious meal to please all the senses.  

Captured by Emma Cleary Photography, it was a gorgeous night where true romance blossomed.  Glad to have experienced it all!

Romance and Merriment at The Green Building

We may currently be in the heart and heat of the summer, but we simply cannot get over the beauty and warmth that was Laura and Steve's winter celebration, and we are so excited to share it with you! The memories that were made on that fabulous day will truly last a lifetime! 

The couple started their day as so many do, full of anticipation and excitement at the prospect of what was to come. They shared the sweetest of first looks on the snowy, cobblestone streets, and continued in capturing their love throughout the iconic sights of Dumbo all captured by their fantastic photographer Clean Plate Pictures. From there, Laura and Steve made their way to their family and friends, at The Green Building, where they enjoyed a very sweet and personal ceremony in front of a beautiful floral backdrop we designed, created by our friends at Rebecca Shepherd Floral Design. Once they had made it official, it was time to enjoy in laughs and merriment! This fun loving couple personalized their big day with amusing games and moments of giddy light-heartedness amidst a gorgeous space! What an incredible way to share the start of their life together. May it be full of play, laughter and moments as sweet as they are!

A Day Wedding at the Green Building

Julie and Alex are two of the most kind-hearted souls that we have had the pleasure of working with.  Their sweet and intimate wedding at The Green Building perfectly complemented their loving natures, while some whimsical details touched on their more quirky side!  Abundant florals by Brrch provided a free-spirited feel and the Momofuku Milk Bar cake was absolutely delicious.  Star Wars legos decorated the cake, and signage saying "May the 4th be with you!" by Sharp Shooter Signs played on their May 4th wedding date.  It doesn't get more fun than that!  Wishing we could re-live this day!

Beautiful Brooklyn Wedding !

We had so much fun working on this beautiful Brooklyn wedding with Kevin + Laura! They spent their wedding day at a few of our favorite Brooklyn venues and places! The bride got ready at the Wythe Hotel, the couples first look was under and around the Brooklyn Bridge, their ceremony was at 501 Union and their cocktail hour and reception was at The Green Building. They really poured their hearts and souls into their BIG day and made so many of the beautiful details themselves or with their families help. From the wedding favors to the table runners and numbers the details really made the wedding shine!
