With its classic black and white palette, Pola and Igor’s glamorous Brooklyn wedding could have taken place in 1925, 1955, or 2015. The truly timeless affair took place at El Caribe Country Club Caterers in a lavish indoor ceremony surrounded by friends and family. The couple’s portraits with ein photography are as elegant and chic as could be as they strolled through the city sidewalks on the way to say “I do!”
Pola and Igor
El Caribe Country Club Caterers, Brooklyn, New York
Classic and personal. When I think of classic and beautiful decor I always think of a touch of gold — so I really used that throughout the wedding, from invitations, to a flower wall behind our table, to Igor‘s bow tie, gold accents were weaved throughout. There are so many fads that go in and out of style, especially in wedding decor, but I really wanted my wedding to feel like it could have happened in 1925, 1955 or 2015 and kept everything in my idea of “classic” for that reason. Every element was also very personal — our table numbers were actual photos of us holding up the numbers — elements like the ceremony music and accessories were all carefully chosen and thought of to reflect us as a couple.
That moment we first saw each other during the “reveal.” That morning we were both full of nerves and anticipation of the day. Not seeing each other and having one another to talk to about it all was tough. The moment he opened his eyes and we finally saw one another all of that fear and nerves went away and I finally felt excited and ready. He was the most handsome I’d ever seen him in.
The Couple Recommends:
Lilia of Plume and Stone was incredible. I had a very specific vision but didn’t know how to convey it without many many drafts and emails back and forth. She was incredibly helpful and patient and really brought my vision to life.
ein photography surpassed my wildest expectations. The photos are some of the most beautiful I have ever seen and his team was incredibly professional and humble – keeping the situation under control all day while remaining calm and keeping us all upbeat and excited while maintaining our nerves.
And lastly, my hairstylist Senada who might just be one of the sweetest and most talented person I’ve ever met.
