You know how some girls grow up dreaming about their wedding day? And others get the ring and then go- ummm, now what? (for the record- we love both types of brides!) Hannah was the later and came to Polished with an intangible feeling for her wedding celebration, but was ready to hand the reigns over to the pros to make it come together in a way that would shine. They had a bullseye for their ceremony location (Andrew’s family church in Long Island) and had stumbled across the Brooklyn Winery is some of their intial research. They threw the idea out to me, and ummmm, I LOVED IT, and the rest is history in the coolest hippest urban winery you’ll ever see.
In our initial design consultation, Hannah zeroed in on a floral arrangement that she loved and never wavered from it- bright tangerine and pink peonies in vintage white milk glass. We took that singular piece of inspiration and, with the help of some insanely gorgeous, bright spring blooms and the talented Violet and Verde, her flowers made the whole space come alive. Hannah wasnt afraid of bright colors but also wanted to honor the space we were in- rustic, industrial, and also- a bit dark! We chose dark metal chairs to go with the venue’s existing wooden tables, heavy black edison bulb lights overhead and candlelight. So.much.candlelight. Another source of inspiration was the vintage tile that greeted you when you first walked in the door, black/white hexagon tiles that we played without througout the paper story- in the invitations and day of paper. I especially loved the tiles for the table numbers! And that wall of greenery? A total show stopper (and totally a part of the regular venue space- dreamy, right?)
The vendor team and venue were all incredible (I didnt even talk about the food yet…the food was SO GOOD!) and Hannah and Andrew were some of the kindest sweetest clients we’ve ever had.
