Onderdonk House Wedding: Robyn & Kåre

Van-Onderdonk House Wedding

Seeking a casual, fun wedding, Robyn and Kåre opted to have their wedding ceremony and reception at the Vander Ende-Onderdonk House in Queens, right on the Brooklyn border. It was built in 1709, and although mechanics and welding places have sprung up around it, the property remains a tiny oasis in the industrial part of town. Driving up to it felt magical. 

They met in his native Norway when Robyn was visiting during high school, kept in touch for years, and finally got married this summer. They went for a fun vibe, with a picnic and a cotton candy machine during dessert (which I had a turn using. It was insanely fun!) Their friends and families gave wonderful speeches were both hilarious and heartfelt, and I adore that Robyn wore a dress in her signature flowy silhouette, tied in the middle with a gorgeous sash, in blue!

p.s. You can see their Lower East Side engagement photos here, if you'd like.
