I’ve posted a very pretty real wedding over at the Bridal Buzz today, shot by Erik Ekroth. Pop by and check it out! It features my new favorite color, purple!
And if you’ve got a real wedding you’d like to show over at WEtv.com, send them my way! They don’t have to be from Brooklyn either! (though, just to clarify, the weddings I show here on BB have NEVER had to be from Brooklyn, just have a modern aesthetic)

Anne Le Guerne, a super talented illustrator here in Brooklyn (she designed the invites), recently got married to her hunny Abe, and Jen Causey was nice enough to send me some pics! Looks like a fun affair!
abe is a jewish-american real estate developer and i am a french, atheist stylist and illustrator (firstname.lastname@example.org). what has been the common link for the 14 years we’ve known each other? our dedication to our family and friends. From the flowers, done by my dear friend djamila moore, to my skirt that my grandmother and i reworked from my mother’s 30 year old wedding dress, to the huppa i hand-stitched from our families’ lace collections, we were surrounded by love everywhere!
after debating numerous and complicated wedding scenarios, we decided to have an all brooklyn affair. we started the day with a portrait session with friend and wonderful photographer jennifer causey (http://simplyphoto.blogspot.com/). then headed to the back stable of frankies (http://www.frankiesspuntino.com/) in carroll gardens, for the family-only ceremony and dinner. after a delicious meal, we walked over to the bellhouse (http://www.thebellhouseny.com/home.php) where 100 of our friends and family were waiting for us with confetti. the dreamy dreamland orchestra (www.dreamlandorchestra.com) music was a perfect soundtrack to the night while we danced and feasted on the delicious treats of baked (http://bakednyc.com/) in redhook.
we ended the night blissfully happy and exhausted just as it should be. now, we are planning part deux with my family in france this summer. think, family farm in the alps: can’t wait!

I’m loving these invites from Two Trick Pony, but especially that herringbone pattern…its the perfect touch of menswear that I’m totally into right now.
By the way, I am totally psyched for ICFF and NSS next week! Hope to have lots to show you…

Esther Coombs makes really cool cake stands and one-off tea sets and plates…using items that are found second hand, she draws beautiful patterns and reworks them to give new life to cast offs…they’d make lovely additions to your registry, or as gifts.
