Memory cloth

livingetc craft

I saw this project in October’s Living Etc and thought it would make a great keepsake for engaged couples…it would probably be more manageable for a bridal shower, where guests could share their words of wisdom.

Kiss the Bride Films

ABOUT

Kiss The Bride Films offers a stylish and modern approach to wedding videography. We pride ourselves on creating films that are a departure from what is normally considered a wedding video. We turn your wedding day into a short documentary, beautifully shot and edited. Each film is a cinematic memory made to last a lifetime.

We are a boutique wedding video business with a small team of dedicated professionals. Our cinematographers are all artists in their own right, with backgrounds in film, fine art, and fashion. Our shooting style is discreet and unobtrusive. Our cameras are top-of-the-line: you won’t find crisper images or richer color anywhere. We provide free online hosting for your video, making it exceptionally easy to share with family and friends.

Engagement shoot: Anjum + Mikey

Anjum and Mikey are having an Indian wedding in July 2010.  Because their wedding will be a very traditional (and colorful!) Indian wedding, we wanted to do something fun and cross-cultural for their engagement session. We started out with a modern session outside of a really delicious local Sushi restaurant. Then the couple ordered a roll of sushi and drank some bubba tea with funky straws. Finally, we ended up in a more natural setting to take some soft and romantic images.

This engagement session is so great because it became a mix of Japanese, Indian, and American cultures and managed to be modern and fun all at the same time.

Studio tour: Bride’s Head Revisited

brides head revisited 5

Name: Alexandra Kowalski and Emily Martin
Location: 43 East 78th Street, 4th floor
Company: Bride’s Head Revisited

What is your aesthetic? Modern classic

How does your studio style convey your professional aesthetic? Our studio is located within our boutique. It is a light filled boutique on the 4th floor of an old brownstone on the Upper East Side. The classic lines and beautiful molding in the building give the boutique great character, and we’ve added black accents to the room that give it a nice modern clean edge which is softened by a great light blue and ivory rug.

Favorite part of your studio? The fact that we have combined our retail space with our work space and that it allows us to have the best of both worlds.

Where do you go for inspiration? Emily and I met while working at the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Emily has a fashion history degree and I studied costume design, so we tend to go back to that when we’re looking for inspiration. We’re designing for modern women, so we try not to get too “vintagey”, we like to keep our designs modern with a classic look.

What tool do you use in your business that you can’t live without? My tweezers. They’re invaluable for picking up the tiny Swarovski crystals that are incorporated into our combs and veils.

Is there anything you’d upgrade to? The ground floor. We are on a fourth floor walk-up, there are lots of pretty things to look at on the way up through The Wedding Library, but it can take the wind out of some people, and it can be hard on the mothers and grandmothers.

Anything else we should know? We work closely with our brides to create the perfect look for their wedding day and we specialize in custom designs. All of our designs are made-to-order and depending on the bride and her style, she may want something that is very customized. Emily and I love working with brides to create original designs, and having our studio as part of our boutique makes it much easier.
