Simone and Jed live in Dumbo. The neighborhood and the apartment they share in it are true reflections of who they are. They have breathtaking views in a chic building. Upon entering their home it’s apparent they have great taste, but also a warmth and relaxed vibe that makes you want to take your shoes off. This feeling was something they wanted at their wedding.
Even though other venues were considered, the fabulous 26 Bridge just a few blocks away from their apartment became the obvious choice. There were several wedding traditions that did not appeal to them. They didn’t want a plated meal, fussy flowers, or a night where they wouldn’t be able to interact with every single guest. They did want a curated bar, food stations open throughout the party, flowers and lighting that enhanced the character of the venue, and most importantly, amazing music.
This type of specificity made it easy to find the ideal vendors. What Simone and Jed provided was a portrait of two people so ready to embark on marriage together. After their first look on the crowded cobblestone streets of Dumbo, they shared the rest of wedding journey equally and together. This was solidified by a beautiful ceremony witnessed by their family and friends, and after they spent the entire evening side by side relishing in the continuation of their adventure together.
“I've been looking for you baby
In every face that I've ever known
And there is something about the way you love me
That finally feels like home
You're my light you're my darkness
You're the right kind of madness
You're my hope you're my despair
You're my scope of everything everywhere”
