The photobooth






I always wanted a photobooth, but the cost of it ($2000!!!) was definitely a deterrent. I asked Belathée what I could do, and they suggested hiring their friend Jerome to run a makeshift photobooth…he’s an incredibly talented photographer, and without hesitating or seeing any of his work, I was sold. I sewed that green polkadot fabric I had bought a while ago for the backdrop, but he also changed it up a little with the gold lamé fabric which was just hilarious. My girl R brought some cool props, I provided the Kanye West glasses and statue of liberty hat, and we were golden! The photos speak for themselves. If you’re interested in doing something similar, contact Jerome at Photomaton Chic.

Vendor reviews: Vosges + Busy Beaver Button Co.



Favors: Vosges Chocolates
Vosges has been more than good to me ever since starting Brooklyn Bride, and I couldn’t think of a better favor to give our guests than a pair of their amazing truffles! I was able to use their white favor boxes, and sent them a selection of yellow and green ribbon for them to tie on for me and no extra cost. We also included little Moo card with pictures in and around Brooklyn with a little note from the two of us. They were very accommodating and the truffles were DEE-lish!

1” buttons: Busy Beaver Button Co.
Busy Beaver Button Co. is incredibly easy to work with….I designed the pins according to their template, emailed them over, and had pins less than 2 weeks later! The owner even sent me a sample when I was a little concerned with color matching, but they looked amazing and everyone loved them.

Wedding Style Guide giveaway




Before the wedding, Jane of the Australian magazine, Wedding Style Guide, emailed me about, what else, wedding stuff, and we got to talking about the presence of international wedding magazines over here. I’ve happened to see issues of Wedding Style Guide at local bodega’s and the occasional Barnes and Noble, but for those of you who don’t know the magazine, its incredibly insightful, with great images in a compact size. They’ve got lot of goodies on their website AND their new blog too. Jane was nice enough to send me a bunch of their latest issues [all the way from Australia!] to give away to you guys, so you know the drill….leave a comment below and 5 will be picked at random to receive the 2 issues. Contest ends Friday so get those comments in!

Vendor reviews: invitations + calligraphy




Invitations: Jaime Viñas of Viñas Design
Jaime did our invitations as a favor to me since I work with his wife, and I love how they turned out! We worked together throwing around ideas, and ended up with a set that truly reflected Brooklyn, from Coney Island, to the cherry blossoms of Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Everything was very elegant, while staying very modern and crisp.


Calligraphy: Betsy Dunlap
Betsy’s calligraphy was the talk of the town once invites went out, and I was very pleased with how everything turned out! She did our outer envelopes in a custom green, which went perfectly with the ink used to print the invites. People told me they hung up the envelopes on their fridges along with the invitations, so that definitely says something! I asked her to also do our table numbers and some signage, which of course also turned out beautifully. She was a dream to work with!
