Belathee Photography

After searching high and low for the perfect photographers, we ended up with Annabel and Dorothee of Belathee Photography. Their work is absolutely stunning! They shoot in both black and white, digital and film, so you're getting the best of all the worlds, and their photography has this ethereal quality while retaining a modern touch, making these photographs instant heirlooms. The albums they create in the end are thankfully free of gaudy leather and gold clasps…clients can opt for multiple colors and sizes of their beautifully simple books.

What does it mean? Vané + Chad

“What does it mean?” is the second post in a continuing series where we ask a blogger how they used their wedding as an expression of their union with their significant other. Today we are honored to hear from Vané Broussard, the creator and writer of Brooklyn Bride.

Its hard to pick 1 meaningful part of our wedding, but I think if I had to, it wasn't anything we did ourselves.  It was the sheer amazingness of our guests who had traveled near and far to celebrate with us!  While the wedding was in Brooklyn, we had guests who came from all over the US and as far as Japan, Australia, and Egypt!  It was so humbling to have them all there, but the best part was having them let their hair down in the “faux-to” booth we had set up outside the reception….the pictures taken there are some of our favorites from the whole day because they captured the fun we wanted everyone to have!  Those are the moments I think we'll cherish the most.

Thank you, Vané!
