A modern Brooklyn wedding with loads of personal, fun and light-hearted touches – Jane and Joseph’s wedding at The Liberty Warehouse looks like it was unforgettable, and the wedding photos by creative Philadelphia wedding photographer Michael Ash capture its style and atmosphere perfectly!
From the bride and groom, Jane and Joseph:
What three adjectives that best describe your wedding? Colorful, playful, summery
What inspired your personal wedding style, and how did you incorporate your style and personalities into your big day? We wanted a fun and colorful celebration where guests would want to let their hair down and have a blast. Guest fun was key. We didn’t want something too formal or a frilly black-tie affair. And we made sure to do everything our way, even if it was not the conventional or traditional way. The flag bunting is totally us, as it also was a theme on our invitations, and I love the look of it strung over the ceiling. We chose the venue for its lovely outdoor pier setting, airy warehouse feel and just as importantly, the quality of its food. We had very much ‘highbrow’ food (think oysters on the half shell, flutes of bubbly, caviar and lobster) but in a fun setting. We weren’t looking to stick within a certain theme – if we like it, we had it!
Looking back, what are the moments, decisions or memories that you love the most about your wedding? I am very glad we chose to incorporate the traditional Korean wedding ceremony. Our guests found it very interesting and beautiful, and I loved hearing everyone’s words to us as a new couple. We also made sure to have our entire wedding party and their SOs at our table and not just sit by ourselves at a sweetheart table, and that was a great decision.
What was your wedding color palette? All summery colors, like peach, pink, yellow, light blue, etc. Colors that pop against white.
