A Casual City Hall Wedding and Restaurant Reception at Celestine in Brooklyn, New York
Megan Ford and Bora Goekbora had a casual wedding that highlighted the beauty of the Brooklyn waterfront. Megan wore a short, simple dress, which complemented her romantic bouquet of pink and white flowers. Bora echoed her style in loafers and a light gray suit sans tie. The day started with a ceremony at New York City Hall, where friends and family hosted a memorable exit complete with a confetti toss. The reception took place at Celestine, a Mediterranean restaurant in Brooklyn that overlooks the New York City skyline. "Our reception at Celestine was designed with minimal structure, with technically just the cake-cutting as the one planned agenda item, leaving the rest of the evening for socializing, dinner, drinks and dancing," Megan says. The couple kept flowers to a minimum to let the city views shine, but they impressed guests with a well-curated menu. "We also had the most fantastic customized cocktails, one of which was a lavender margarita that was a real crowd-pleaser," Megan says. The couple also had a small after-party at 68 Jay Street in Dumbo, Brooklyn.
