Engagement shoot: Anja + Ben

anja + ben

My fabulous friend Anja (site director of TheKnot.com) is getting married soon, and her engagement pics tell a great story of her and her fiance’s personalities.  They shot all over Brooklyn at thrift stores and on the streets, but my favorites are definitely from the Airstream trailer they shot in…I gotta get me one of those someday!  You can check out more pics from their shoot over at The Knot here and here.

Happy Thanksgiving + card swap

amy atlas thanksgiving

Happy happy thanksgiving everyone!  Much like everyone else, I’m taking the rest of the week off to reflect, relax, and rip into some turkey down south in Louisiana, so I’ll see you back here on Monday!

And don’t forget….

holiday card swap header

If you’re interested but having signed up for the card swap yet, today at 3pm EST is your last chance, so don’t delay!  No joke, this is the biggest swap we’ve have yet!  I keep having to go out and buy more envelopes!  See the full info at the original post. CARD SWAP IS NOW CLOSED

Oh, and there’s been a question some of you have had about how the swap works…essentially you’re sending 1 card to each person in your card swap group, and its as if you’re sending a card to a friend, so yes, feel free to write a note inside!

Last night was the wedding of Leah and Michael at the Martha Stewart Weddings Popup Chapel, and I’ve got to say it was a beautiful affair!  I’ll be posting more in depth about it and the other weddings this weekend on Monday over at The Brides Guide blog, but  thought I’d give you a little sneak peak.  My pictures do no justice to how cute and creative the whole wedding was, so I’ll leave that to the expert (Mel Barlow!)

NY Mag Wedding recap

This year was my third round of the NY Magazine Wedding Event, and it could possibly be the best one yet!  More vendors, BETTER vendors, but space to walk around…all add up to a successful event.  Here are some of my favorites from last night….

Yummy truffles from Taste Caterers….I loved the way they presented them.

Lots of gorgeous gowns as you walked in…

Mel Barlow talking to a bride on the left, Crave Catering display on the right.  Veggies never looked so good!

Yummy mini milkshakes from Mary Giuliani Catering….

Karen Cunningham‘s completely coordinated table!  That church shot is one of my favorites.

Happiness abounds at Jenny Ebert‘s table, designed by Barb at Hatch Creative.  Those flowers were crazy cool.

Beautiful arrangement from the geniuses over at Takashimaya…so good to reconnect with my old middle school buddy Peter who is now their Creative Director!
