This past Saturday was a beautiful summer day for an outdoor wedding at the Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture in Prospect Park, Brooklyn. This extravagant mansion was built in 1900 by Manhattan architect William B. Tubby, and was the perfect backdrop for Cynthia and Kyle’s wedding.
The wedding began with the ceremony located in the garden area next to the venue. The bride looked beautiful in her white gown with gorgeous lace details.
Cocktail hour included passed hors d’oeuvres and signature cocktails catered by Sips & Bites. Guests also had the opportunity to write a special message in Cynthia and Kyle’s custom photo guest book.
After cocktail hour, food trucks from Domo Taco and Milk arrived as dinner options for the guests. Domo Taco offered Asian inspired Mexican cuisine, while Milk offered gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches and macaroni and cheese.
The dinner tables were decorated with mason jars filled with white summer flowers, votive candles and white rose petals sprinkled about. Each place setting included a personalized package of seeds placed on a blue linen napkin for each guest.
To create even more ambiance, white paper lanterns were hung throughout the tent.
After dinner the party moved inside to the dance floor where the bride and groom shared their first dance. The dance area was decorated with fairy lights, votive candles and rose petals sprinkled across the mantles.
After dancing it was time to cut the cake! The couple opted for two cakes; one that was white with magnolia flowers, and one that was an ombre blue with a custom bobblehead cake topper that resembled the couple.
After the cake cutting, the couple and their guests danced the night away!
The KBNY team loved helping make Cynthia and Kyle’s wedding a night to remember!
