I adore the simple, nautical details carried throughout today’s feature wedding! Captured by Brklyn View Photography, Christa and Sean were married on a perfect August day in front of their closest friends and family in a ceremony overlooking a gorgeous lake in Missouri. The couple’s showcased their modern design aesthetic with clean, simple blue details. They designed and crafted their invitations, table numbers and ceremony flower holders with the help of an Epson paper cutter. Christa wore a lovely modern gown paired with jewelry from Tiffany’s Frank Gehry collection. Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails and dinner on the dock before heading out on the lake for a sunset cruise.
A few words from the bride:
Sean and I first met in architecture graduate school in NYC, but it wasn’t until a few years later that we got to know each other on a road trip with mutual school friends. We went on our first date shortly after and have been together ever since.
I grew up spending summers at my family’s vacation home at Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri. The lake has earned a reputation among our friends for being a great vacation spot, so it seemed like a natural location to bring our family and friends from the Midwest and Brooklyn together.
The location became our inspiration. We designed and made our invitations, decorations and flowers to reflect the lake atmosphere and our modern design sensibility. We incorporated personal touches such as having my aunt perform our ceremony and serving our favorite pies made by the local pie lady. We selected The Lodge of Four Seasons as our lake venue. The Lodge provided a great atmosphere with the classic lodge design, the waterfront lawn where we had our ceremony, and the dockside terrace where we had dinner. We decided to forego the traditional DJ and dance party and hosted the reception on a cruise boat. The boat ride was a great end to a fabulous day and allowed everyone to have a little fun on the water.
Our photographer and friend Jainé of Brklyn View Photography did a fantastic job at capturing all of the details and atmosphere of our wedding day. Thank you Jainé!
