A Whimsical, Rustic Chic Wedding at MyMoon Restaurant in Brooklyn, New York
Jannie Chung (28 and a contracts and reversion editor) and Ivan Wu (27 and a pricing analyst) didn't have a stated theme for their early-October wedding, but all the day’s details made for a truly one-of-a-kind rustic-chic affair. “We didn’t have a theme because I felt it would limit us, and knowing myself, I probably wouldn’t have been able to stick to one,” Jannie says. MyMoon in Brooklyn, New York, a 19th-century former boiler room, set the tone for the entire affair, the brick walls, high ceilings and quaint garden offering an intimate, romantic and quirky backdrop for the celebration. DIY projects were a huge part of the day, with Jannie fusing various design ideas she gathered for months into unique details like feather escort cards, ribbon aisle markers, Mod Podge table numbers and an antique drawer card box. Victoria Ahn of Designs by Ahn worked with the couple to bring the historic venue to life, creating dozens of pastel bud-vase arrangements, as well as breathtaking bouquets and a wedding arch that tied in seamlessly with the garden-inspired feel of MyMoon’s outdoor space. “It was a beautiful space on its own; the hanging jars, twinkle lights, and the small details really set the ambiance,” Jannie says. Self-proclaimed foodies, Jannie and Ivan knew that special attention should be given to the menu. With the help of MyMoon, the couple dreamed up an unforgettable meal abounding with delectable dishes and global flavors. After indulging, the couple and their guests hit the dance floor, pausing only to strike a pose at the photo booth. “The low-key and intimate setting really reflects how we are as a couple,” Jannie says. "Good food and good company are what we both really enjoy, and we had all that."
