Kate ♥ Leigh 6/12/10

reBar in Dumbo brooklyn was the venue for this sweet as pie couple. This venue is one of the coolest, relaxed spaces I have worked in so far. It features a barrel-vaulted terra-cotta ceiling, Art Deco lamps over tables of elegantly warped wood, and stained-glass windows. A converted industrial loft space, this intimate upstairs venue boasts intricate iron and steelwork, antique tulip chandeliers, and stained-glass windows.

The style was old world/french inspired using a range of colors from burgundy, blues, dark reds, and a touch of yellow. The bridal bouquet was composed of Black baccarra roses, wine scabiososa, yellow freesia, blue delphinium and pinkish red foliage. The handle was a natural wire wrap.

The Harvest table turned out spectacular. The two center pieces were made with Manzanita branches reaching out from a black urn. The branches were dripping with test tube cylinders and globes stuffed with flowers and chandelier bits hanging in between. Bird cage lanterns were mixed in between smaller arrangements on either side.

The ceremony took place under the double arch which I did up with curly willow branches and hanging tea lights. At the top of each arch was a special focal point of flowers made up of Black baccarra roses, and hanging pink amaranthus which gave an enchanted feel to the ceremony site.
