This year was my third round of the NY Magazine Wedding Event, and it could possibly be the best one yet! More vendors, BETTER vendors, but space to walk around…all add up to a successful event. Here are some of my favorites from last night….
Yummy truffles from Taste Caterers….I loved the way they presented them.
Lots of gorgeous gowns as you walked in…
Mel Barlow talking to a bride on the left, Crave Catering display on the right. Veggies never looked so good!
Yummy mini milkshakes from Mary Giuliani Catering….
Karen Cunningham‘s completely coordinated table! That church shot is one of my favorites.
Happiness abounds at Jenny Ebert‘s table, designed by Barb at Hatch Creative. Those flowers were crazy cool.
Beautiful arrangement from the geniuses over at Takashimaya…so good to reconnect with my old middle school buddy Peter who is now their Creative Director!

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]
