There are so many stationery companies out there today, but Bella Figura is really one of my favorites…I love what the company stands for, and how they really embrace new designers. Soooo, I was super happy when they wanted to host a contest here on Brooklyn Bride. One reader will be winning a $100 certificate for anything on the Bella Figura site…it could be invitations, coasters, save the dates, you name it! Just hop over to their site, pick your favorite design, and leave it in the comments below. The winner will be announced on Friday. Good luck!
[Dewdrop, above, is definitely my favorite, but maybe I'm biased since its inspired by Brooklyn Bride ]

#32 – Megan
He works nights and I deliver newspapers (at 3AM) and I go to college full time and we own a business together, which when we’re not doing our other jobs– we are doing that. So any time we are together or able to talk to each other is so very special. We do a lot of “free” things, like go to parks, cook (he just watches — we don’t want any fires!), borrow DVD’s from friends to watch (while cuddling of course ), etc. But, my favorite thing of all is listening to him talk– even if we can’t be face-to-face. I love his voice.

I was pretty amazed when last week I received an email from photographer Jose Villa about this new book that PDN put out called Wedding Photography Unveiled [he shot the cover and is featured in the book]. Written by Jacqueline Tobin, its a great look into what really goes into wedding photography, and features the work of 20 amazing photographers from all over. I received my copy the other day [its quite beautiful!] and Jose is letting me give away a copy to one of you lucky readers! Leave a comment below on who YOUR dream photographer would be if you could do it all over again, and a winner will be picked at random and announced on Friday. Thanks Jose! [if you just can't wait, the book is available on Amazon for purchase]
