Julia & Justin’s Iconic Brooklyn Summer Wedding

It might sound cliché, but I really do love New York. My husband and I lived in Park Slope in Brooklyn for many years, and it will always hold a special place in my heart. So when Julia and Justin reached out to have us be a part of their Brooklyn summer wedding, I was delighted to accept.

They contacted us after ordering “Save The Date” stationery on our website, asking if I’d be interested in doing the signage and decor for the rest of the wedding. They had their Brooklyn summer wedding at the Boathouse in Prospect Park, which I was very familiar with. My husband and I almost chose that exact same venue for our wedding!

Justin & Julia

Julia and Justin met while they were students at the Rhode Island School of Design. They shared a keen sense of design, and they both loved minimalist, modern styles. It wasn’t long before they started seeing each other and decided it was time to tie the knot.

Because they had such a clear idea of what they wanted their wedding invitations to look like, it was easy to match their style for this wedding. Much like their passion for minimalist design, we kept everything clean and simple, leaning into layered neutral tones and lots of texture.

It had a stunning effect, making everything look modern while also giving the perfect backdrop for the natural pops of color from the greenery of Prospect Park. The result was a summer wedding that looked stylish and chic while still being inviting and romantic.

A Brooklyn Summer Wedding to Remember

We created custom invitations for Julia and Justin, using double-thick 2-ply cotton stock and blind letterpress printing. This gave the invitation a textural embossed impression, which matched the feel of their wedding perfectly. 

And as it turns out, Julia and Justin are trendsetters! Since their wedding, we’ve incorporated neutral tones for several other couples. It’s the perfect way to showcase important information about the couple and the wedding while allowing for other unique highlights.

Julia and Justin’s wedding turned out beautifully. Julia was breathtaking in her minimal yet striking wedding gown, and Justin was so dapper in his black and white tuxedo. The black and white theme really lent itself to the other aspects of the day, from the historic Boathouse to the happy couple.

Seeing our stationery at the event was delightful, especially when we noticed the signs were framed in a modern gold and clear frame. Julia and Justin clearly have an eye for design! And we loved being a part of their special day.

Final Thoughts

Working with Julia and Justin on their Brooklyn summer wedding was a real treat. Not only were they a wonderful couple to work with, but their clear vision was easy to match. Since they’re both design-oriented, we were on the same page from day one.

Although I love Austin, I’d take any excuse to be a part of another New York wedding. If you have a wedding coming up and are in need of custom stationery, we’d love to help.
