Maria at Ritzy Bee is doing a fun series where she’s asked bloggers to pick their favorite post thus far…I picked one that meshes my 2 loves, interiors and weddings! Check out her blog this week to see all the favorites.
I’ve been waiting for so long to share this all with you, but had to wait til the magazine was almost out (August 19)…..a few month ago, we did a photoshoot at our apartment for Brides New York Magazine for their “Find Our Wedding Style” feature. It’s where they take an engaged couples apartment and use it as the inspiration for their wedding. We had so much fun during the shoot, and I think they came up with some great ideas…I especially love that they worked in a lot of handmade touches, and gee whiz, my favorite color green!
Are you interested in being the NEXT couple for this feature? Leigh’s looking, so here’s all the info you need:
Brides Local Magazines is looking for an engaged couple in the New York/New Jersey area to appear in the magazine’s Spring/Summer issue as the featured couple in our “Find My Wedding Style” story. In a nutshell, here’s how it works:
We photograph an engaged couple’s apartment and based on style elements from their home (pictures, furniture, clothes, etc.) create ideas for their wedding. The couple is not required to use any of our ideas, and it’s okay if they already have elements of their wedding in place. The purpose of the story is to show our readers how items from their day to day life can inspire great ideas, and how their interior design aesthetic can be translated into wedding details. No fancy digs needed—what I’m looking for is a distinct style we’ll have fun working with. All that’s required from the couple is an afternoon for our team to come over and take photos.
Interested couples should email the following to me at email@example.com:
-any thoughts they already have about the formality or vibe of their wedding
-a brief description of their personal styles
-five to seven photos of their home (a few wide shots and close ups of any details they feel are particularly “them”) and one picture of themselves so we can get a sense of who they are and what their living space is like.

I recently discovered the blog Free Design Goodies via decor8, and just love it….Summer Allen-Gibson has collected all the cool free stuff from other sites and blogs and collected them up in one place…my favorites so far are the free labels and peony card from Creature Comforts.
