“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!

Rain might be every bride’s worst nightmare, but with the right umbrella it can actually make for a picture perfect event. Plus, rain can actually create some beautiful lighting for the photographers. These are a collection of some of my favorite scenes of a rainy wedding day.
I’m loving the color tangerine. There are so many different colors that you use to spice up your wedding, but this one is so versatile, if you’re willing to take a little risk.

I love getting well styled photoshoots in my inbox….I feel like they can capture a new idea really well, and show brides how it can be accomplished. This one comes thanks to Erica from Tinsel & Twine….I’ll let her explain! Thanks Erica!
The theme of this photoshoot is a Honeymoon Staycation. We imagined a sweet couple with enough love and wanderlust between them to fill a New York City apartment … but just not the funds to go somewhere far, far away.
We chose a variety of complementary colors, shapes, and textures, but kept our table purposefully imperfect. Each placesetting was dressed with a collection of travel-related accessories like vintage binoculars, passports, and sculptural globes. To add to the homespun feel of the decor, we created a mobile installation of fanned tissue paper and newsprint.
We also DIY’d a multi-colored cloth and yarn rope to snake down the length of the table. Rather than adding flowery plant-life, we decked the table with hearty airplants anchored in bowls of red beans that hint at some place exotic and tropical. To tie the story together, each placesetting holds a mock boarding pass that doubles as a love note.
We are so proud of our fabulous intern, Natasha Melo, for leading this photoshoot. And of course, we could not have pulled this fun shoot together without the help of our awesome “dream team” made up of the following talented people:
