From The Bride’s Perspective:

Describe Your Wedding Day

A truly magical day. It was a warm October day when the sun shone through the stained glass altar. I remember looking out at the pews and thinking how incredible it was that all of our loved ones were in one room for us. I’ll never forget walking into The Brick to see all of our work come together. The tall centerpiece and bouquet were filled with various shades of white blooms including roses, tulips, ranunculus, and more. Our florist incorporated a few pale pink quicksand roses to add dimension. Our favorite floral detail was the spray of greenery and blooms throughout the space. Our tablescape featured white linens, a black cheesecloth runner at the occasional farm tables, white pillar candles with varied height glass votives and gold beaded chargers and flatware. We dressed the plated chargers with custom menus featuring our monogrammed wax seal. On the menu, we had a traditional Polish dinner for our meal. We always knew we wanted to celebrate Ryan’s Polish background and Allie’s did just that. It is a day that we will never forget and cherish for the rest of our lives!

Describe Your Wedding Vision

As an interior designer, I’ve always loved the elegant beauty found in simplicity. We chose to forgo the traditional pops of color and instead focus on the whites, golds, and blacks that gave our wedding a timeless elegance. Our venue was a “blank canvas” venue with beautiful light that will always make our hearts skip a beat. It opens the door to a million different aesthetic possibilities. Sophisticated clean lines and abundance of natural light thanks to the many large windows. The white brick walls, concrete floors, and exposed ceilings adorned with crystal chandeliers are some of the features that this gorgeous venue is known for. Florals were an area in which we wanted to shine, but also stay true to our classic, somewhat delicate approach. We brought in black velvet through the bridesmaid’s dresses as a soft, yet high contrast to the overall aesthetic as well as bringing warmth from the occasional farm table. Additionally, we wanted to add details that were personal to us, like adding our Grandmothers’ charm to my bouquet, incorporating our dog, Rufus, into the bar, and our custom wax seal.
