Wedding at The Liberty Warehouse: Part 2

The Liberty Warehouse is one of our favorite Brooklyn wedding venues and, as you enjoy photos of this gorgeous wedding, you’ll see why that’s true. Sweeping waterfront city views, wide-open indoor and outdoor space and antique, industrial charm make this a truly special place.

Last week, we shared details of the romantic floral arch we created for this ceremony. The same lush garden theme was carried through all the florals.

For an organic, cascading bridal bouquet in classic white and cream, we used standard roses, garden roses and spray roses, dendrobium orchids, lisianthus and stephanotis.

Bridesmaids’ bouquets were composed of blush and cream roses with white freesia. Table centerpieces were classic and romantic, in the same delicate, feminine color palette of blush, white, cream and pale green. Low centerpieces featured exquisite phalaenopsis orchids. We added drama to the high centerpieces with cascading dendrobium orchids and amaranthus.

Romantic Floral Arch at The Liberty Warehouse


We created one of our most romantic floral arches for this wedding at The Liberty Warehouse on the Brooklyn waterfront. We loved designing all the floral decor for this stunning bride’s ceremony and celebration, but the arch that framed the couple’s vows, against a skyline view and sunset, is especially close to our hearts.


Beginning with a concept of a natural, garden-like structure with contemporary and romantic clusters of flowers, we constructed the arch with curly willow and wisteria branches. We first chose lush, decadent blush and cream roses, white spray spray roses and hydrangea, and blush stock. Dendrobium orchids trailed down the arch’s side, entwined with Italian and Israeli ruskus. Aisle decor was composed of clusters of the same flowers, all set in moss.

“We absolutely adore how Leslie & Mark’s hip Brooklyn wedding embodies urban chic in each & every detail of the marvelous day.”

We are thrilled one of our weddings is featured on Borrowed & Blue. From a ceremony at the church where the groom’s great-grandparents got married, to a Brooklyn chic reception in Red Hook, this wedding was a true NYC charmer.

Leslie chose a classic, feminine color palette of white, blush and light pink for her wedding flowers. She knew she wanted her bridal bouquet to have a rounded but natural look, so we created a hand-tied bouquet with white roses, blush garden roses, white lisianthus and blush ranunculus.

In Love at The Liberty Warehouse: a Wedding in Red Hook

“Love is friendship set on fire.”– Jeremy Taylor

“Joshua and I met the first week of college and became fast friends,” said Jenny Ninyo Kaplan. The two studied abroad and became travel partners. In fact, they got along so well that they decided to move to New York City together, as friends. “After about a year of living together, we began to realize what we had was pretty special,” Jenny said. “And quite possibly more than just a best friendship. So we tried it out – and it worked! Three years later, we got engaged. A year and a half after that, we had the most amazing wedding in New York with all of our family and friends.” The couple married at Liberty Warehouse in Red Hook, Brooklyn, with New York Harbor providing a scenic backdrop for the ceremony. Traditionally, yellow flowers symbolize friendship. Jenny chose a fresh, sunny color palette for her bouquet, carrying white and yellow dahlias, chrysanthemums, ranunculus and craspedia. Hydrangeas, freesia, and roses in pale peach and bright yellow joined the mix to adorn the tables and chuppah. Mason jar vases of flowers and succulents hung at aisle ends, adding a touch of rustic charm.
