One of the best parts about being a Brooklyn wedding planner is getting to infuse wedding days with personal touches. For Victoria and Adam’s MyMoon wedding, every single detail, down to the napkins, was designed with intention. It was a magical, whimsical explosion of color and love. But first, let’s go back to the beginning.
Victoria and Adam met over the pandemic, where many modern day romances began. Adam had swiped right on Victoria, and even used a “Super Like”. However, the grand gesture went unnoticed. Adam wasn’t one to give up though, so he gave her a follow on Instagram and struck up a conversation in DM’s. The two quickly got to talking and realized how well they got along. Among many topics, a few things became themes in their relationship. One being the moon, which came from their walks down Christopher Street along the piers late at night. Another was Victoria’s love of birthday cake pop tarts (which will come into play later). Adam would use Victoria’s adoration for pop tarts as an ice breaker of sorts.
Their proposal was true to form, where Adam had the ring out, ready for his romantic gesture, and Victoria was oblivious and thought he was just really excited about the moon. It took a couple minutes before she realized what was happening, but she emphatically said yes and thus started this new chapter.
When it came to deciding on the venue, MyMoon felt perfect on every level. Their love for the moon felt serendipitous, and they loved the food and ambiance of this Brooklyn gem. From the start, Victoria and Adam wanted a whimsical and colorful wedding. To accent the Spanish influence of MyMoon, we brought in Mediterranean tile motifs in the paper goods and napkins. Of course, flowers were a huge part of adding whimsy. We worked with Molly Oliver Flowers to develop these hanging flower installations that were attached to the tables. In ever meeting we had, Victoria especially emphasized her love for texture. She loved “brain flowers” and wanted the “weird ones”, which I loved. Molly did an incredible job of translating a playful yet tasteful vision into flowers.
Retro motifs added to a playful nature, so we used 70’s inspired fonts on the signage and paper goods to let the good times roll. We also continued the retro theme by bringing in a rotary phone guest book from After the Tone and an old school ice cream cart with some nostalgic treats. Adam is known for his love of Legos, so he hand made all the table numbers out of Legos. They are also proud cat parents to their beloved feline, Merricat, so she joined us in spirit on the custom cocktail napkins.
And remember those pop tarts from earlier? Victoria and Adam sourced 100 of these birthday cake pop tarts and bagged them up for guests to taste the magic. We also had a framed sign explaining the history and meaning behind them for guests to soak in. Finally, we brought in a retro inspired wedding cake from Velvet Valley, which fulfilled Victoria’s Marie Antoinette cake dreams.
Tons of thought went into the wedding day decor, but also into their attire. Victoria sourced a vintage Clair Pettibone dress that was absolutely perfect. It was romantic, dreamy, and extremely on brand to Victoria’s aesthetic. She also had a custom veil made by local designer Janesse Russel, which perfectly complimented her dress. Adam opted for a dark green suit paired with custom Nike Air Force 1’s, his signature shoe. They featured their wedding date and initials on the back, and Adam even treated his groomsmen to their own custom kicks.
As you can tell, there was so much thought and intention behind every single element of the day. What I loved most was how present Victoria and Adam were throughout their actual wedding day too. Victoria’s friend was the officiant for the day, and everyone shed some warranted happy tears during the ceremony. They scheduled several moments of alone time throughout the day to connect and have time to soak in the craziness of the day. During their first dance, they only had eyes for each other and everything else faded away. At the end of the evening, they were escorted out by their friends and family to their golden chariot, AKA a vintage NYC taxi cab. It was the perfect way to send off these sweet lovebirds from their MyMoon wedding.
Congratulations Victoria and Adam! I can’t express how big of an honor it was to be a part of your MyMoon wedding. Here’s to a lifetime of happiness!
