Intimate French Cafe Wedding

Are you a jazz aficionado? Or perhaps you’ve got a thing for all things French? Do you wish you could travel back to the 1920s? If any of those things are you, then you’re going to fall absolutely *head over heels* for today’s wedding, inspired by a ‘20s French bistro! Sienna + Jonathan decided to hold their special day in one of their favorite restaurants, Juliette, located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. They wanted the feeling of an intimate French café, with all the cozy details + designer/planner/florist, Cana’s Miracle, made just that happen!

Sienna shares Our main inspiration came from our love of French jazz, movies, wine, and pomme frites. We’ve always wanted an intimate setting that felt like a 1920s French bistro, fully lived-in and without all the pomp and circumstance. Beyond the settings and ceremony, every detail and choice was focused on making sure our guests had great food, great music, and a great time. Everything actually felt like it fell into place much easier when it wasn’t just about us.

Let’s travel to France, er, I mean, Williamsburg for this wedding à la française, captured by ONTHETIMES Photography!

Their photographer, Caitlyn of ONTHETIMES Photography shares: This wedding shows that you don’t have to have a huge party and tons of details to make a great wedding day, even focusing on a few things that are most important to you like the venue or florals, or of course the dress, can make the day as beautiful. But at the end of the day it’s about the union you are making and the best way to represent that.
