I’m sure you’ve heard on the news, but New York is now the latest and largest state to legalize gay marriage! Woohoo! I cant wait to start receiving some rad same-sex weddings from my home state! In fact, I’ve got 1 coming up this afternoon….how convenient!
+ In honor of the good news, Unusually Fine is offering free engagement sessions for any couples that donate a minimum of $400 to Freedomtomarry.org this month! Lets keep the momentum going so we can have the whole country on board!
+ Robin Roemer is giving away a wedding photography package worth $4000 to one lucky gay or lesbian couple getting married in 2011 or 2012! Check out the details on her blog.
+ Photomuse is giving away free wedding photography to a same sex couple getting married in NYC up to 2 months after the law goes into effect. All the details can be found on their blog.
Know of any other deals going on in celebration of the law passing? Leave it in the comments!

This week we had our super-fun NSS Stationery party hosted by myself and the lovely ladies of Delphine, Cat Seto, Oh So Beautiful Paper, Paper + Cup , and The Sweetest Occasion. We were excited to have the party at the great Brooklyn Winery [awsome space for a rehearsal dinner or low-key wedding by the way] and lovely flowers by the talented Blossom and Branch and photography by Kelly Guenther Studio. It was so fun to decompress and meet up with all the stationery peeps from far and wide! Can’t wait for next years!
It couldn’t have been possible without our awesome event sponsors Felt & Wire, The Knot, Mohawk, Anthology Magazine, B-List, Blossom and Branch, Brooklyn Winery, Eat.Shop Guides, For Your Party, Graphic Image, Green Paper Company, Kelly Guenther Studio, Linnea’s Lights, Delphine, Mom Inc. Daily, and Wendelline Papers. Thank you thank you!!

There’s a rad party coming up in the next few weeks during NSS hosted by myself and couple of my industry peeps [Delphine, Cat Seto, Oh So Beautiful Paper, Paper + Cup , and The Sweetest Occasion], so if you’re in the wedding or stationery industry [that means you bloggers, editors, shop owners, planners, reps, exhibitors, buyers, etc] you’re welcome to come! Just please RSVP so we know how many are coming!

Sadly, we’re losing our awesome intern Helen (thanks for all your help!) so we’re in the market for a new one!
Ideally you are:
– totally into modern weddings!
– know your way around the wedding and design blog scene
– great with Photoshop, inDesign and WordPress (maybe even have your own blog?)
– creative with layouts
– strong design aesthetic
– reliable and a self-starter
You’ll be working on:
– Laying out and coding posts
– Research for upcoming posts and gallery additions
– Organizing potential upcoming events
You’ll be working remotely so we will stay in email contact. The internship will only take about 10 hours a week, maybe a little more, maybe a little less depending on whats on the schedule for that week. If you’re NYC based, you’ll get to come along for fun networking events! Great way to get to know influential people in the industry.
Please email you resume, any work samples, and why you think you’d be a great fit for Brooklyn Bride team to brooklynbride [at] gmail.com.
