“Something old, something new,
Something borrowed, something blue,
And a silver sixpence in her shoe.”

We all know this little rhyme, listing what a bride’s to have with her on her wedding day to insure a long and prosperous marriage, but where did it come from?  And why something blue?

The rhyme dates back to 19th century England, when each of these tokens symbolized something the bride’s friends and family wished upon her partnership.  “Something old” insured the bride would never forget where she came from, “something new” for the times ahead, and “something borrowed” from a happily married friend or family member, in hopes her happiness would be passed over.

Brooklyn Charm at The Liberty Warehouse

Andrea and John met moving into the freshmen dorms at the University of Pennsylvania in the summer of 2006. They were next door neighbors in the Quad and became fast friends navigating college life in a new city together.  While their friendship escalated throughout college, it wasn’t until the winter of 2009, after they both took semesters abroad in two different Italian cities, that John finally asked Andrea out on a date – and they’ve been together ever since!

The couple was married this past June at the St. Charles Borromeo Church in Brooklyn Heights.  The ceremony was followed by a beautiful reception at The Liberty Warehouse in Red Hook, a breathtaking converted warehouse right at the water’s edge, featuring exposed brick, original wooden beams, a full bridal suite, and panoramic views of New York Harbor.
