Vibrant Brooklyn Stoop Wedding Inspiration with Three Vintage Dresses

Colorful Brooklyn Stoop Elopement

Mandi + Greg put their wedding plans on hold—but a little practice never hurts, right? These two put forth their best bride + groom looks (hers happily included three vintage wedding dresses) for some colorful Brooklyn stoop wedding inspiration! The creative team transformed a Park Slope brownstone on a dreary day into a bright imagining of an elopement with fun + attainable at-home wedding details. Photographer Sylvie Rosokoff gave us a peek into the inspiration:

Drawing from muted neon tones and inspired by our main fashion piece – a stunning iridescent sequined vintage Fred Perlberg gown from the ’60 – we meshed our couple’s inner shine with some outward sparkle and Brooklyn glam. We embraced the backyard or front stoop as the most “it” venue this season. If wedding plans need to scale down, why not do it with three vintage wedding dresses and an abundance of celebratory sweets?

It all came together with planning by Julie Lindenman Events and creative genius from several local vendors + businesses. Let’s have a look!

Vibrant Floral Installation Vibes

This iridescent-inspired masterpiece comes by way of Brooklyn Blooms. A dramatic mix of dahlias, orchids, baby’s breath, coxcomb, carnations, hydrangea, marigolds, grasses, and so much more along the brownstone banister.

The juxtaposition of modern cheery color against the of-another-era building is simple perfection—that perfect “here and now” NYC feeling.

Bridal Beauty in Three Vintage Wedding Dresses
