Long ago, Jamie swore that she would never marry a boy in a band. That was a promise she would never, ever break…until she met Rob. It is undeniable how these two artists were hand designed for each other. Rob, a musician, and Jamie, an amazing designer. I mean, come on, she works for Converse! Their friends gushed about how much they naturally complemented one another’s artistic and creative drives.
“Their art is the best art of all art” – Michael Scott, The Office 🙂
The day started off at an Airbnb where Jamie slipped into her long-sleeved lace gown. A little birdie told us that Beyoncé had also stayed there before. Not only did the Queen Bae stay there, but she also posed for photos in the porcelain bathtub. So, obviously, Jamie had to do the same thing. What a better way than to say sayonara to being a single lady…
“I got gloss on my lips, a man on my hips…” – Beyoncé
Next we ventured to the venue for their first look! Making the bridge in Prospect park void of any pedestrians was next to impossible. Luckily, thanks to Jamie’s killer Made of Honor Anna, and a couple of Rob’s friends, the traffic was blocked to the bridge until this first look was executed to it’s full extent of sweetness 🙂
As one would expect from two talented artists, their wedding did not disappoint. They chose the Prospect Boathouse in Brooklyn, NY as their venue. Also, Rob’s parents had Nathan’s Hot Dog cater their wedding once upon a time, so of course, mini hot dogs were served during cocktail hour. Nom om ommmm….
“A hot dog at the ballgame beats roast beef at the Ritz” – Humphrey Bogart
The historical Prospect Boathouse gasped of floor-to-ceiling windows which collided with a tile ceiling. Jamie and Rob lined their guests in a long table that stretched between the white columns. The venue is a complete jaw-dropper.
Not to mention, so was their ceremony which backed to a lake, blanketed in bright green.
And before the dancing began, guests were served mini cheesecakes. Yes, hot dogs and cheesecakes. I may have met my client-soul-mates for life!
Now for some Q & A with our couple!
When and how did you two meet?
We met through a former coworker.
What is your favorite thing about each other?
My favorite thing about Rob is his kindness and patience. Rob says his favorite thing about me is how driven I am, but somehow manage to care for others along the way.
He proposed on the dock in front of my Grandmother’s lake house in Washington State.
The boathouse seemed like a happy medium between the two of us. A little bit of nature in the big city. It also had a lot of historic details and we both loved the story behind the location.
Anna’s wedding speech was probably our favorite moment.
It is a lot of work and it’s very easy to get caught up in the details, but things will go wrong and you just have to accept it. Also, remember that the wedding is more about the experience than the details. It was helpful to think back to other weddings we had attended and what we remembered and what we didn’t and we used that to gauge where to spend money and where it might not be worth it in the long run. It was very helpful!
