So far we’ve covered sweet & savory foodie items perfect for any Brooklyn themed out of town gift bag, now for some more ideas for the actual tote!  Going custom would be awesome too, but if there’s no budget, these are some great readymade options.

PS.  Remember my wedding totes?  Erica from Thoughtful Day designed them and I still love ’em!

Josh Strauss Weddings


We are a Brooklyn based husband and wife team offering photography and wedding films as well as a vintage style photo booth making us a one stop imagery boutique.  With us, all of your memories can be captured with a diverse array of medias while maintaining an intimate, natural, unobtrusive, and fun aesthetic all within a competitive pricing package.

While we take posed portraits of your family and the bridal party very seriously, we pride ourselves on capturing all those candid, ‘non-posed’ moments which happen throughout the day- your uncle dancing with a bride’s maid, your grandmother crying on your mom’s shoulder, your nieces and nephews scheming to lick icing off your cake. Our couples always tell us that we were everywhere but never in the way. We have a way with keeping our distance but still getting the perfect shot, we like to keep it natural, and prefer to use available light even in indoor locations. Our laid back and fun demeanor puts everyone at ease especially during the most stressful of moment.
