We did away with a large amount of wedding “traditions” in our planning because we wanted the day to reflect us all the way (no cake, no color schemes, no favors, no bridesmaids/groomsmen etc). The day was filled with great Italian brunch food, the beautiful vined background of Aurora and a small group of our family and friends. We also wanted to include as much family as possible to make it all the more special so Phil’s uncle provided brunch entertainment and Grandpa Ted officiated the ceremony. With just a Maid of Honor and a Best Man, our small wedding party was exactly how we wanted to honor our two siblings. We also passed champagne during the ceremony because the party needed to start as early as humanly possible and I think our guests were fans of this as well! Our family members danced down the aisle with sunglasses because we don’t take ourselves too seriously and I think we pulled off the fun wedding we had hoped for! We kept our guests entertained in true Brooklyn style by hosting a Friday night Pig Roast at Radegast Biergarten and a Sunday Funday event at Brooklyn Bowl so that we could spend the whole weekend with all of our guests. All in all it was a wonderful weekend with our friends and family that mean so much to us.
