As I mentioned last week, my dearest friend Christina and her hunny Jack got married up in New Hampshire in a gorgeous, homemade wedding at the Harris Center.  It truly was a labor of love, with friends pitching in with their various talents, and I swear to you, I have never heard more heartfelt vows than the ones these two shared.  Jack’s friend Nadine did the flowers, her boyfriend Scott was the DJ, I played wedding planner and assistant florist, their friend Doug got ordained to marry them, Christina’s sister did the invites, and another friend Andrew mixed some fabulous cocktails (honey lavender lemonade, yum!)  The food was all organic, and there was no wedding cake (egads!), but something WAY better….an ice cream bar with fresh local ice cream, berries and cream.  Jen Huang did an amazing job with the photos and has some more up on her blog, so enjoy!

Personal training discount

So, big news….I’ve started working out with a trainer. Ok, so you may not think thats HUGE news, but it is for me. I’m pretty lazy, and its about time I did something about that. Funny thing is, I was NEVER this motivated before my own wedding (someone raise their hand and tell me they felt the same way!) I don’t know why, I had the gym membership, maybe even a trainer at one point, but I never went. And the wedding came and went, and I still never went. So now I’ve started at NY Personal Training…a week and a half in, and I’m feeling pretty sore, but in that good sore way. The nice thing is that the gym is private, so you’re working with trainers the entire time. Its been a good way to keep me accountable for going and excellent motivation for you brides who are like me.

As something very cool, the owner of the gym, Mike Shaw, is offering you NY brides $250 off their Wedding Shapeup package. Just mention Brooklyn Bride when you call to schedule an appointment!

School badges

school badge - best man

school badge - bride

I thought these badges were kind of clever…maybe hand them out at the rehearsal dinner so everyone knows whos who? They also come for grooms, bridesmaids, and ushers.

Studio tour: Belathée Photography (Seattle)

Since I am not working in NY right now I thought it would be fun to share my workstation here in Seattle. It’s actually a corner in our bedroom which itself feels like a tree house. It’s such a different environment from our NY office (which we will share sometime soon, we just have to photograph it) and at first the transition was hard but my view of the bay is amazing and it’s a great visual contrast to the computer and all the editing done on there. Most of our time nowadays is spent working with our images so it’s nice to have an environment once in a while that is not very technical. When I am not in NYC , Annabel and I work together via “skype” and we always joke that the only thing we can’t upload is our lunch. It’s a treat to be both in crazy NY and mellow Seattle.

The photos at my desk are a mix of old family portraits and other little trinkets that make me happy.

ed. note: If you’re interested in showing off where YOU work, drop me an email!
