I’ve got my recap of last weeks Brooklyn Popup Wedding Series going up at the Bride’s Guide, so check it out to get the scoop of the events.  This week the Martha Stewart Weddings Chapel will be in full swing, with the fabulous free wedding happening on Thursday!  I’m so excited to see how its going to turn out!

Also, check out my blog over at WEtv.com where I discussed out of town giftbags for your guests.  It was fun to remember back to when Chad and I were slaving away putting them together.

Party @ 303GRAND

Woohoo!  Thanks to everyone who came out on Saturday night in the gloomy weather to hang out at 303GRAND and win some awesome prizes!  It was so nice to see some familiar faces like Jordan and Jason from Enormous Champion, Jen from Ice Cream Social, Bryn from Paperfinger, and then meet some new friends, like Llubav, Jillian from 100LayerCake, and all the brides and grooms that came!

Michael from The Flashdance friggin kicked a$$!  Hire him immediately if you’re planning your wedding, he’s totally worth it!  Not only is he a dapper dresser and dj master, but he even brought his lovely wife and baby girl to party later in the night!

I was so grateful to have POP Champagne and Jones Soda provide us with amazing beverages, and to Nine Cakes for sending some darling cupcakes our way.  I’ve mentioned Jones Soda before because they donated to the B -List conference, and were such a big hit, I had to ask them to do the party as well!  POP Champagne was a new company to me, but now that I know of them, realize that they are PERFECT for weddings or bridal showers…how cute would it be to serve individual servings of champagne in blue or pink bottles with straws?  I’m all over that!  And Nine Cakes, geez louise, so tasty and adorable!  And in Brooklyn no less!

Extra special thanks to those who donated to the giftbags and raffle!  We had thousands of dollars worth of prizes to give away, like engagement sessions, ring pillows, handbags, hair accessories, books and more!  All the proceeds from raffle tickets went to the I Do Foundation so it was all for a good cause!

Brooklyn Popup Series week one recap

I’m covering the events of the Brooklyn Popup Wedding Series over at The Bride’s Guide this month, but I thought I’d share a couple more photos here of the decor…

I was so impressed with Domestic Constructions window design for the shop!  They made paper flower garlands and mixed in some scraps of fabric in shades of pink…such a simple concept but so effective!  Its a nice take on all those garlands I’ve been seeing lately.

Bryn from Paperfinger was an absolute sweetheart!  When I first met her on Saturday, she looked so familiar I had to ask where I knew her…apparently we both went to Skidmore College!  Small world!  She’s quite talented with her calligraphy, and is able to do lots of different types…but my favorite is where she fills in the letters.

Here’s whats coming up this week at the chapel:

June 11th-14th, 1pm-8pm Daily: Wedding Photography Exhibit curated by The Wedding Library.  You’ll get to check out prints from some of the best in the wedding photography and videography world.

June 11th, 6-9pm – Opening Exhibit party with photographers/videographers

June 13th, 6-10pm – I’ll be hosting a party featuring The Flashdance and an amazing raffle.  If you’re interested in popping by, please RSVP at brooklynchapelRSVP@gmail.com.

The Crane Chandelier Project in Brooklyn

Tonite, The Brooklyn Pop-up Wedding Chapel has its first public special event! From 6pm-8pm, The Wedding Co. all the way from Toronto will be there with their Crane Chandelier on display and everyone can come in to learn how to make an origami Crane from the expert ladies themselves, Catherine & Stephanie! They came all the way from Canada for this so it’s not to be missed!

The Wedding Co. is building a chandelier from origami cranes signed by brides and grooms from around the globe. It’s their goal to collect 10,000 of these peaceful tokens of love: For each one they receive, they’ll donate 50¢ to cancer research. How cool is that?? As an engaged bride or groom, this is your opportunity to contribute to a community and an art installation piece. Not engaged? Then participate by coming by and folding a crane or just by spreading the word!

I’m hoping to pop up so I can learn how to finally make a paper crane!  Here’s what else is happening this weekend:

FRIDAY JUNE 5
6-8pm Wedding Co.’s Cranes Chandelier Project, Origami Crane demonstration

SATURDAY JUNE 6
12-2pm Lunch with Lisa Hoffman, Ceci NY, “How to Create a Creative Invitation Suite”
6pm Share a drink with us to celebrate the opening of the Brooklyn Pop-Up Wedding Series

SUNDAY JUNE 7
12-1pm Kimberly Canale of Inspired Goodness demonstrates developing a set of printed goods for your wedding
1-2pm The ladies at Ice Cream Social discusses their motif design process AND host an actual ice cream social
2-3pm Inspired Goodness gives good ideas on out-of-towner packages with Brooklyn style
3pm Anna Beckman demonstrates her fun and unique calligraphy style
