Tiffany + Jon always knew that they didn’t want to have a traditional wedding as they aren’t a very traditional couple. :) They’ve been together for almost 9 years, so for them it was all about making it feel like a giant celebration and party. They really wanted their wedding to be different than any other wedding they attending – a wedding no one would forget! The most important aspects to them were the food, the booze and the music; hence their theme of Booze, BBQ and Booty Shaking! :)
The location was key, as well, as they wanted something outside and in the fall. Once the visited The Queens County Farm Museum in Queens, NY they knew they found the perfect spot. And it’s the only farm in the five boroughs of NYC – how rad is that?! They love BBQ and comfort food, so they had fried chicken, pulled pork, ribs, brisket, mac and cheese – yum! Big thanks to Sweet Little Photographs for the beautiful photos and congrats to Tiffany + Jon!
How cute was their first look?!! Love their reactions :)
Most memorable moment of your wedding day?
By far the most memorable moment of our day was our ceremony. I just remember thinking, this is awesome, can we rewind this and do it again?! We got married in a barn on the farm and served Firefly and lemondae in mason jars for everyone’s arrival. When the bridal party was walking in our friends and family were going nuts, applauding, whistling, cat calling. I remember standing outside with my dad thinking it sounded more like a concert than a wedding ceremony, it was bad ass.
Our best friend got ordained for us and did the ceremony. It was so personal, funny, and loving. No one else could have pulled it off like he did, it was so special. Our wedding party unexpectedly broke out into song at one point singing “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” by The Beach Boys, one of our favorites. We wrote our own vows which was so important to us and when we had our first kiss everyone threw an explosion of pink and gold confetti. Being up there together was the greatest feeling in the world. We are the best of friends and a team, and to make it official was the greatest thing ever.
Tell us a bit about your music:
Processional: “Cosmic Love” by Florence and the Machine
Recessional: “Let’s Here it for the Boy” by Denice Williams
First Dance: “Home” by Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeros
Any advice for those planning now?
Throwing and planning a wedding isn’t always easy, but you shouldn’t make yourself crazy. Have fun and don’t loose sight of the fact that this is a day about the two of you. You have to do what you want that day and not what anyone else wants. At some point the two of you should steal a moment and take it all in. I remember us standing outside the tent looking in right before we were announced for our first dance and it was magical. We were in total awe, it was surreal.
