Originally, Keren and Asaf wanted to get married in the bride’s parents’ backyard. When that didn’t work out, they didn’t want to sacrifice the low-key elegance of a garden setting, and opted to hold the wedding at the beautiful Brooklyn Botanic Garden…
The invitations were perforated to resemble a train ticket.
Keren’s bouquet was tied with beautiful French, Italian and Swiss ribbons.
The romantic flowers were designed and created by Matthew Robbins. Keren says, “I loved that he used vintage mirrored platters and had small vases with little variety of flowers so guests could each take something home as opposed to a huge centerpiece at each table. I love aromatherapy, so Matthew did an incredible job incorporating fresh herbs at the ceremony and reception.”
I thought I’d leave you with some wise words from the bride: “I went into the weekend telling myself that something will go wrong because that’s life, but not to worry – all those little things will give our wedding charm and make it memorable. With that thought in mind, really nothing went wrong. It was perfect. And it doesn’t even matter as long as you enjoy the moment and get back to what it’s really about: you and your new partner, your family and friends! Without those things, it just wouldn’t matter. So that would be my advice to someone else… plan and prepare as best you can and then let go of control for the big day. If you have fun so will everyone else!”
