Gillian + Brian | May 2015 | Liberty Warehouse | Brooklyn, New York
Gillian and I met as sorority sisters at Boston University (Go Gamma Phi!) and together we met Brian as patrons of an infamous Cambridge establishment, The Hong Kong Restaurant. After one particular evening at the HK, we talked about how cute our bartender was and since I had seen him at the bar for awhile, I encouraged Gillian to just send him a Facebook message - I mean what was there to lose really?
Lo and behold, after an icy and dicey (ha!) first date in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and five years later, Brian proposed. Over the next couple of months, they planned their late spring wedding at the fabulous Liberty Warehouse on Pier 41 in the shipyards of Red Hook, Brooklyn.
For the day of, we prepared two chalkboard signs for the ceremony and reception. The first one (above right) was part of the seating arrangement signage and we used a mix of handwritten chalk typography. The second (below) greeted guests as they entered the area reserved for the ceremony. Again we used a mix of handwritten typography to complement the industrial backdrop of the venue. The result were two whimsical and fun chalk signs that informed guests and set the tone for the rest of what was a very fun evening!
