Celebrating Pride Month
June is Pride month celebrating differences and support of the LBGTQ community.
Stephanie and Breezy were such a lovely couple. They had their wedding at My Moon in Williamsburg Brooklyn last October.
October is one of my favorite months for weddings. The days are warm and the nights are chilly. The weather is usually clear and I love the transitional energy moving from fall into winter. The air feels snappy, crisp, and warm.
My Moon is a terrific spot for weddings. Ceremonies are held on the terrace and the cocktail hour in the courtyard. The courtyard has banquetts with curtains and pillows. It feels like you are in another country.
Weddings at My Moon
The reception is held in the main room. My Moon has a great structure of an old factory building. The tables are long, narrow wooden tables and the feeling is like you are in an old castle or at a banquet. It is a great place for a wedding or a corporate event.
Dancing and music can be set up in an adjacent room so there is a lot of place to have a party.
I love that it is so compact, yet has distinct areas for different stages of celebration.
Stephanie has such a warm personality and she really wanted something that was casual and feminine.
Centerpieces were made in wooden boxes with dahlias, lisianthus, calla lilies, roses and hydrangea. We worked with a pallet that included peach, burgundy and blue.
Wooden boxes look great in My Moon, we used table runners to soften everything and elevate the space. Table runners are a great way to cover a table without looking too formal or losing the effect of wood.
I love the rainbow unicorn cupcakes that were placed on the dessert table. Why not rainbow unicorns at weddings? They are magical and weddings are magical.
Being LBGTQ is not a choice and can be terribly alienating for those who don’t live in a supportive environment.I wonder if Breezy and Stephanie felt like rainbow unicorns when they were growing up.
I am so happy that they found each other and they will always be my rainbow unicorns.
