Confetti Inspired Spring Threes Brewing Wedding Photography: Brooklyn, New York
Mike and Lyz tied the knot with a confetti inspired party at Threes Brewery in Gowanus Brooklyn on a sunny day in May. Lyz wore an incredible lace a-line ballgown dress with one of a kind glitter boots and even a custom leather jacket. They began their day with a fun first look on the roof top of their hotel before heading over to their venue for their ceremony. After losing a game of rock, paper, scissors, Mike read his custom vows to Lyz first and their ceremony was officiated by their two close friends. They kicked off their reception with the Silver Arrow Band, temporary tattoos inspired by their pet cat and snake, and a custom 4-tiered cake made by their friend. Congrats!
We met on OKCupid. I remember the bar by my office was too full so we walked down Park Avenue to find a different one. They were all full (no surprise, I think it was a Thursday). We ended up walking all the way down to Union Square and went to a bar with a giant lava lamp.
I proposed first thing in the morning on the couch. It was just another day, except this one we decided to get married!
I remember his profile on OKCupid asked specifically for a girl with a cat. Our first date was six hours long, and ended with him trying to kiss me, missing, and weirdly grabbing my butt by accident. Our second date was soup dumplings and Apotheke in Chinatown, and I watched Youtube tutorials before to make sure I knew how to eat soup dumplings. The second date kiss was better. The proposal was cozy and perfect -- he pulled out his grandmother's ring on a Thursday morning, while I was drinking coffee, hair up and no makeup. I started hysterically crying. It was sweet and us and perfect.
Wedding Planning Tip:
It actually doesn't have to be stressful. I kept waiting for the anxiety to come, or to experience the nightmare of planning you always hear about, and it just never happened. Start early, do a few things every month, and choose elements that are fun, and planning will be more fun for it. We used Zola a LOT
