Melissa + Kyle! -- Ideal clients in every way possible. I knew we were meant to be the first time we met in person and Kyle described something as "dope"! Anyone who knows me, knows that is my word! Melissa may or may not have rolled her eyes at us, but I loved them anyway! Not to mention our mutual love for Biggie Smalls! Thanks for the blanket! :)
Their industrial and organic wedding journey started by finding the perfect venue. They wanted unique, industrial and open. Melissa being a environmental science nerd and self professed "tree-hugger" and Kyle being from Colorado, they also wanted an organic and woodsy feel to warm up the industrial space. We looked, and looked and looked -->> Connecticut, New York, Long Island City, Brooklyn ... you name it we looked! They finally fell in love with a venue in the Hudson Valley that was stunning! It check off all the boxes on their list, but we were a day late and a dollar short! Another couple had just "signed" a verbal contract the day before and they had seven days to claim it. And, they did, poop! Back to square one!
So I said, "Hey, what about an airplane hangar?" -- worth a shot right? To be honest, I don't think they were totally convinced until they saw the space at WestConn Aviation by OnTheMarc Events. It definitely checked off their must have boxes! Industrial, open, and super cool and unique! The organic and woodsy would be the brainchild of myself and Carrie Wilcox Floral Design, which I have to say, we nailed it with burnt oranges, potted plants and trees, YES TREES!
The only set back -- we needed to have their ceremony at another location. Luckily, Melissa's mom's house was only twenty minutes away! They had the best of both worlds that day, a personal, tented backyard wedding followed by a killer reception at an airplane hangar!
Thank you Melissa and Kyle for your patience and understanding my crazy ideas! I legit love. love you guys and am so happy we have the friendship we have. All our best and much love on your new journey together and building your new house! I can't wait to visit!
