and we’re back…

Hey everyone

Just wanted to pop in and let you know that Brooklyn Bride is finally up and running again, thanks to Lucia over at dlsh.  Apparently, a hacker got into my system and installed some malware, which led to a lot of red notices on computer screens and for Google to setup lots of warnings.  Its even affected my Twitter, which is attached to the blog via RSS feeds, so hopefully that will get sorted out soon.

Sorry for any confusion the past few days…I was locked out of my admin and couldn’t do anything!

Save the Date: Jen + Scott

Here are some save-the-dates I designed for a darling NYC bride! I just loved her idea of incorporating antique keys. We are printing these digitally, but we’ll be gocco-ing her invites & RSVP cards. I’m in Raleigh, NC, where we’ve just had a 90-degree day- Jen’s colors are a refreshingly cool retreat for me!

Save the Date: Roopa + Matt

What we love about our save the date postcard is that it’s not necessarily obvious to everyone what it is, but everyone we sent it to loved it regardless.  Matt and I met in Baltimore (I’m from NY, he’s from FL, and we met in grad school) so we wanted to somehow incorporate into our wedding the city where we met and spent two years together and with which we fell in love (and in which we fell in love!).  The characters on the front are stylized versions of two Baltimore food and drink icons, Mr. Boh (the face of National Bohemian beer) and the Utz Girl (the face of Utz chips).  The two were prominently featured in a billboard in Baltimore in which he was proposing to her, and it was so well-loved by everyone in Baltimore that it stayed up for nearly two years.  Matt and I decided we wanted to use that billboard as our save the date, and my dear friend Amy, who is a graphic designer, reinterpreted the billboard into what you see here; we got them printed through VistaPrint for next to nothing.  On the back, we included the two characters in their original forms from the billboard and also a link to our website, on which we explained to our friends and family who are not familiar with Baltimore – which is most of them – who those characters are and why we used them on our save the dates.   I love when save the dates are fun and unrelated to the actual wedding invitation, so I had to go that route with ours!

Save the Date: Alison + Nick

Here are my Save-the-Dates, designed by the amazing Erica Miller at Thoughtful Day.  Erica worked with pictures of our venues–an art deco movie theater (ceremony) and a 19th century church turned event space (reception.)  The “church” has some taxidermy in it, and Erica did a fantastic job of capturing the vibe of our impending Central PA wedding!  People FLIPPED OUT when they got these babies in the mail… Erica’s wonderful, and I can’t wait to see our finished invites!

Save the Date: Courtney + Luke

I did these on Illustrator and printed and cut them myself. I also used gray A9 envelopes from papersource (where I got that neat embosser) which I lined with a photo of us from our engagement session with Punam Bean ( see here http://www.punambean.com/blog/?p=279). I was going to do custom stamps
but did not like the price so I was excited that the ‘love’ series stamp from the USPS worked well on the gray envelope. My last addition were the moo stickers which sealed the envelope in lieu of licking the glue – we did not want people to use a letter opener so you could see our lovely lining.
