Brittany & Norman’s Whimsical Wedding in Central New York

January 20, 2020

How Their Story Began

Brittany and Norman had met back in 2010 when they were both stationed at the U.S. Naval base in Pearl Harbor, HI. After two years of being best friends, they decided to officially start dating. Norman had a special way of proposing to Brittany, however many interruptions, which to this day remain “rock blockers” had stopped him. Norman was finally able to pop the question by leaving the open ring box on the bathroom sink in the comfort of their own home.



Wedding Day Details

Flower crowns and floral ties added to the whimsical aesthetic. Brittany wore a crown of maroon dahlias, blush pink garden roses, hypericum berries and silver dollar eucalyptus. Her bouquet featured the same blooms and included white monte casino flowers, parvifolia eucalyptus and dusty miller. Her bridesmaids wore smaller flower crowns and held leafy bouquets that coordinated with Brittany’s.

Their semi naked wedding cake, created by The Half Moon Bakery & Bistro, featured whimsical accents of hypericum berries and various succulents.

Additional elements such as the string lights at Hayloft on the Arch, and the starry sky captured by Ray Alvarez added to the dreamy aesthetic of the day.

Wishing Brittany and Normal all the best! Congratulations!
