When Jane Eun and Moo Young Cho started planning their April 15, 2016, wedding, they had one vision in mind: a big, fun party! So they searched for a planner who could really make it happen (in the perfect venue, of course). Enter Jove Meyer of Jove Meyer Events, who transformed the blank canvas of 501 Union in Brooklyn, New York, to fit the couple's clean and simple aesthetic. вЂњHe really made the process fun for us,вЂќ says the bride. And with greenery, candles, and flowing fabric lining the tables and walls of the space, they didn't even need flowers.

вЂњI think I tried on every dress out there,вЂќ says Jane. вЂњI was certain I wanted lots of lace and a cap sleeve, but it just didn't work on my body shape!" With this knowledge, the bride went in the opposite direction-clean and simple to match the wedding-and found the perfect dress: a strapless Monique Lhuillier gown with a slim silhouette and an architectural train.
As both her something-blue and something-new, Jane wore indigo Manolo Blahnik mules, complete with crystal embellishments, which were a gift from her mother. The bride's final accessory was a nosegay of lily of the valley.
And lucky for Jane, she got extra time with the photographer: "We were a bit behind schedule but it was because the groom was running late," she says. " It worked out for me since I got a lot of more solo shots with the photographer!"
Moo wore a custom blue suit from Houndstooth in Kansas City. вЂњThat's where Moo is from, and he has so much hometown pride that having a suit made there was perfect,вЂќ Jane says.
For the portraits, the bride topped her gown with a denim jacket that read вЂњbrideвЂќ across the back. (Brides, this is a big trend right now so take note!)Photo by Chaz Cruz Photo by Chaz Cruz
Jane didn't want her bridesmaids in puffy tulle so she opted for curve-hugging designs from White by Vera Wang. Each girl in her bridal squad also rocked a a denim jacket with her name embroidered on the back. "We got married mid-April and we really didn't know how the weather would hold-up so I thought this was a great accessory for pictures and to keep my amazing bridesmaids warm," says the bride.
As a nod to the her own mother's wedding, Jane had her bridesmaids carry bouquets of chamomile flowers.Photo by Chaz Cruz Photo by Chaz Cruz

вЂњIt was amazing to stand up at our ceremony and see everything come to fruition,вЂќ Jane says. вЂњIt seemed like the ceremony was over in just a moment, but in that moment everything around us disappeared. It was just the two of us up there, sharing such a peaceful connection.вЂќ
The entire space was decorated with greenery, except for the garden-inspired escort card display that was a bed of roses and tulips. вЂњIt was a nod to the approaching spring season,вЂќ Jane says.Photo by Chaz Cruz
While it was a challenge, the bride and groom managed to keep their guest list to 140 people, which meant they were able to spend time with every single person in attendance. вЂњWe opted for long tables to make sure everyone felt like a part of the celebration,вЂќ the bride explains.Photo by Chaz Cruz Photo by Chaz Cruz
Dinner tables were topped with crisp white linens, more garlands of greenery and ferns, and lots of candlelight, while rose-gold flatware and floral-patterned china added pops of color to the minimalist design.Photo by Chaz Cruz
вЂњI really wanted a naked cake, but Moo insisted on something more traditional,вЂќ says Jane. вЂњIt's the one decision I let him make!вЂќ The couple's two-tiered funfetti and lavender cake was frosted in buttercream and decorated with jasmine vine and hellebores.Photo by Chaz Cruz
When Jane removed her veil after the ceremony, she dressed up her flowing waves with a sparkling hairpiece. вЂњI decided to wear my hair down, like I do every day, to feel more like myself,вЂќ she says.Photo by Chaz Cruz
Later in the evening, Jane swapped her gown for a two-piece outfit by Rachel Comey. She says, вЂњI wanted something super comfortable that I could really dance in, and pants was the way to go!вЂќ And after dancing, Jane surprised Moo with a cigar roller-a nod to their mini-moon in Cuba. The night ended with late-night pizza bites and doughnuts on the dance floor.
вЂњIt's so easy to get overwhelmed and stressed while you're planning,вЂќ Jane says. вЂњTake some time to remember how lucky you are to be celebrating your love!вЂќ
