Laura & Julie are the epitome of cool. We love that they opted for a cocktail tour of Brooklyn to celebrate their nuptials! They are laid back, effortless & totally chic.
From the brides....
Everyone says that it's impossible to meet someone at a bar, not in Julie & Laura's case.
Julie & Laura met at the Jukebox at Cubbyhole Bar in the West Village. Laura was picking out songs that she liked when she saw someone's hand come over and start tapping the screen. She turned around and it was Julie. Laura asked Julie what she wanted to hear, when Julie promptly responded, "See You Again" by Miley Cyrus. Laura thought she was cute and Julie thought Laura was cute, too. The two went to another bar with Laura's friends. Julie had ended up missing her last train back to Long Island, and Laura waited with her at a diner until the next train came. While at the diner, where it was brighter than the bars the two had been at, Julie commented,"Oh you have freckles" while she said it she smiled, which made Laura smile too.
For their first date, Julie bought a brand new pair of sunglasses. When Laura saw her walking up the street, she was a little intimidated by how cute Julie looked. On the date, Julie swears that Laura spoke less than 200 words and thought that, when she went to the bathroom, Laura was going to leave. Laura swears that she was quiet because she just wanted to listen to all of Julie's stories and wanted to spend nothing but more time with her.
Five and a half years later, there was no formal engagement or proposal, it was just a discussion and a decision. A decision to throw a kick ass dance party wedding with their friends to celebrate getting to this place and starting their life together. So in six weeks they planned their Night-Out-In-Brooklyn wedding and asked a good friend to officiate. The ceremony was held close to their home at Transmitter Park in Greenpoint. It's a special place for the two of them because they both love the water, not to mention it has a pretty amazing view of the city.
Five and a half years later, Laura talks a lot more, but still likes to listen to Julie's stories.
