Vintage inspired Brooklyn wedding: Melissa + Ken

January 16, 2013

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.

We love us hot pink anything, but this all roses bridal bouquet is extra hot.

That dapper little fella in the orange suede shoes, that’s their adorable son.

Love that her son walked her down the aisle.

Artist Mike Rohner was there to ‘live paint’ a scene from the celebration.

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

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!
