A beautiful Brooklyn wedding: Alexis + Lee

January 11, 2011

It’s only natural that Lee & Lexi’s wedding would be jaw-dropping, since Lexi just so happens to be the the talented costumer for HBO’s hit series Big Love! The couple are New Yorkers through and through, but Lexi’s work in LA and Lee’s graduate school in NY kept them on opposite coasts for most of their engagement. In the end, the time apart actually made the wedding all the more fabulous, because it served as a homecoming celebration as well!

The wonderful city starred not only as a backdrop (including insane views courtesy of Brooklyn Bridge Park), but as inspiration throughout the various design elements. And it turned out gorgeous.

LOVING their unique style – her dress, his bow tie, the fedora… very New York, wouldn’t you say?

The lush crimson bouquets are soooo pretty. Lexi, her Mom, and her sisters actually did all the flowers themselves!

What a perfect ceremony spot for these two – right on the river bank in the Brooklyn Bridge Park.

Followed by a super funky reception in Brooklyn. The decor is so hip and diverse – crazy graffiti, chandeliers, fluffy poms, velvet-upholstered chairs… and of course, apples! You can’t have a Big Apple-themed wedding without apples.

Such a gorgeous NY wedding, congratulations to Lee & Lexi!
