Breaking Tradition. . .How Karma Flowers designed a very hip(ster) wedding!

Monday, October 10, 2011

It was only eight weeks ago that we were called in to design Matt and Candice's October wedding in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Candice is a model, and is one in every sense of the word. . .tall and stunning, poised and beautiful. Oh- and busy. Matt is handsome and quirky. Dapper and funny. You know how it is, the guy with all of the laughs always snags the beautiful girl. But with her demanding travel schedule for shoots and his equally challenging work schedule, a lot needed to be done in very little time.

The first time we met them was at their reception venue, Rebar. This prohibition, hipster restaurant/bar/movie theatre fit this couple as well as they seem to fit each other. We dug the space. . .it was different and personal and unlike any others we have designed, and we couldn't wait to get started.

Ceremony venue. Powerhouse Arena. The aisle was created using pillar candles and you can see the paper crane  screen in the distance.

The Bride arrived in style.

There were a ton of additional elements to this wedding that made it so special. A New Orleans style jazz band escorted the bride and groom and their guests as they paraded from the ceremony to the reception. The bride and groom played a hysterical ten minute video on the wall of the bookstore before they both arrived at the ceremony. We made them a mustache and lip bouquet that were used later in the reception as photo props.  There was a signature drink and hot sauce and NYC tote bags as favors. They elected not to have a seating plan and we designed a very interesting way of letting their guests know they could sit where they would like. . .

Please excuse our iPhone pictures. As soon as professional pics become available we will be sure to share them, including pics of the bouquet and bout and the beautiful bride and groom -wait until you see her dress!
