Vintage inspired Brooklyn wedding: Melissa + Ken

Categories   Real Weddings

We love sharing fun weddings like Melissa + Ken’s. It’s the type of wedding you scroll through a few times and catch new details you didn’t see before. And considering Melissa spent a good year and a half planning, it’s safe to say she collected plenty of whimsical and colorful items on eBay and Etsy to add flare to every table setting. But here’s a little secret – she also does this for a living! Yep, she’s a party-planning extraordinaire, so working with a dream team of creative vendors, including amazing photographers Les Loups, was fun for her. Getting the guest list down to 100, not so much.

The statement piece of the dance floor was this “dance, dance, dance” sign Melissa’s brother-in-law taped to the floor.

late night ice cream truck

And this is where our mouth starts watering. The Big Gay Ice Cream Truck cruised up for a late night snack. Definitely a sweet way to end the night and then get back on the dance floor.

Congratulations Melissa + Ken!

Taping huge letters onto your dance floor = major dance party points. It looks pretty rad too, no? http://t.co/p8F9HVS1

Best Wedding EVER! We were lucky to have attended this fabulous event. LOVE the Bride and Groom and the wedding lived up to the fantastic people that they are! Not a moment wasted, pacing was PERFECT, and the details were outstanding. I recommend that anyone who can hire Melissa to plan their events - REALLY should. She knows her stuff! the brass figures given as favors to each guest now live prominently on our Rookwood fireplace mantle in Cincinnati. I will never forget a minute of their wedding!
