Talk about memorable! Christine and Jin’s wedding was held at a gorgeous historical church with a reception at one of the most unique venues we’ve seen. Add beautiful flowers, an amazing tented dining space and a stunning Monique Lhuillier gown and without a doubt, their guests will always remember this magical night.
Our ceremony was at St. Ann and Holy Trinity Church – it’s one the oldest church in Brooklyn and considered a historic landmark. The church possesses some of the earliest stain-glass windows.
Our reception was at Jane’s Carousel – It’s a working carousel right by Brooklyn Bridge overlooking Manhattan. It was a magically evening under the stars with the lights of Manhattan across of us, Brooklyn bridge next to us and the rotating lights of the carousel.
Christine’s Wedding Dress Search
I went to five boutiques and I think I tried on over 30 dresses. I was getting, what brides call, white out – every dress started to look the same. I really didn’t know what I wanted, but knew I didn’t want the typical fit-and-flare with a sweetheart neckline. The sixth boutique I went to was Mark Ingram in New York City. In the waiting room I noticed a dress that was fit and flare with a sweetheart neckline and I thought what the heck I’ll try it. When I put the dress on it was what Oprah would call your “ah-ha” moment. It was so gorgeous and luckily I didn’t feel like the dress was wearing me. It was classic, but had modern touches with the blush Chantilly lace over a ivory bodice and horsehair skirt.

I don’t think something so beautiful should be preserved and stored somewhere. I want someone else to feel beautiful in this dress.
