This week we had our super-fun NSS Stationery party hosted by myself and the lovely ladies of Delphine, Cat Seto, Oh So Beautiful Paper, Paper + Cup , and The Sweetest Occasion. We were excited to have the party at the great Brooklyn Winery [awsome space for a rehearsal dinner or low-key wedding by the way] and lovely flowers by the talented Blossom and Branch and photography by Kelly Guenther Studio. It was so fun to decompress and meet up with all the stationery peeps from far and wide! Can’t wait for next years!
It couldn’t have been possible without our awesome event sponsors Felt & Wire, The Knot, Mohawk, Anthology Magazine, B-List, Blossom and Branch, Brooklyn Winery, Eat.Shop Guides, For Your Party, Graphic Image, Green Paper Company, Kelly Guenther Studio, Linnea’s Lights, Delphine, Mom Inc. Daily, and Wendelline Papers. Thank you thank you!!

Sadly, we’re losing our awesome intern Helen (thanks for all your help!) so we’re in the market for a new one!
Ideally you are:
- totally into modern weddings!
- know your way around the wedding and design blog scene
- great with Photoshop, inDesign and WordPress (maybe even have your own blog?)
- creative with layouts
- strong design aesthetic
- reliable and a self-starter
You’ll be working on:
- Laying out and coding posts
- Research for upcoming posts and gallery additions
- Organizing potential upcoming events
You’ll be working remotely so we will stay in email contact. The internship will only take about 10 hours a week, maybe a little more, maybe a little less depending on whats on the schedule for that week. If you’re NYC based, you’ll get to come along for fun networking events! Great way to get to know influential people in the industry.
Please email you resume, any work samples, and why you think you’d be a great fit for Brooklyn Bride team to brooklynbride [at] gmail.com.
The other day I took part in a Smugmug session for photographers in Williamsburg with the insanely talented Rebecca Crumley (The Knot), Jackie Weppner (Merci New York) and Shira Savada (MSW) to discuss getting published in blogs and mags and all that good stuff. After 4 years (almost!) of blogging, I think I’ve finally gotten to where I know what I want to see and post, so I thought I’d share it with you too.
True story: When I first came up with the name Brooklyn Bride, I never in a million years thought that anyone other than my immediate family would be reading it, and at the time, I myself was a Brooklyn bride, so it just fit. In hindsight, it probably wasn’t the best name since to this day, people think that I only post about Brooklyn weddings, which isn’t the case at all. I feel like its really a Brooklyn “state of mind” that I’m looking for, and that can be had anywhere! You dont necessarily care about trends, you’re artsy and take your inspiration from the design world, you’ve got an edge and your wedding shows it!
What I’m really looking for are modern weddings….simple, architecturally inspired, bright colors, lots of white, unique details, that sort of thing. I am NOT looking for vintage or Anthropologie-inspired weddings! Those weddings are totally beautiful and special in their own right, but there are so many other blogs that fit that aesthetic, and I’d rather stick with the modern ones, which means I have to turn away the bulk of weddings I receive because they are just not the right fit. Sad but true…but this is the year where I’m going to really buckle down and stay committed to my modern roots.
So to sum it up:
1. No, the wedding or e-shoot does NOT have to be shot in Brooklyn.
2. Yes, I LOVE modern weddings and want to see more of them! If you’re unsure what that looks like, refer to this wedding, its one of my absolute favorites and what I’m constantly searching for.
3. If you can describe the wedding as “vintage” or “anthropologie-inspired”, chances are, its not going to be a fit.
If you’ve got a wedding or eshoot you think fits, check out my submission requirements and send away!
Tomorrow I’ll be joining with my fellow bloggers to observe a day of silence in honor of the tragedy in Japan last week. Please donate anything you can to help.
