Sarah has a new favorite and wanted to share! How could I deny her?
This shot was taken at the Metropolitan Building in Queens. I just
love how this couple meshed style and elegance with the shabby chic
environment of their venue. The formality of their pose is a cool
juxtaposition to the busy-ness of their backdrop. Also, you can see a
hint of silliness in their smiles beneath this “serious” formal
portrait. It’s a shot that really makes you want to know more about

I don’t know about you guys, but I love getting mail….especially the snail mail kind. With this blog, I’ve gotten to know a lot of you and my fellow bridal bloggers, and thought how nice it would be to be able to send some holiday cheer everyone’s way! Best way I can think of is a Holiday Card Swap!
So here’s how it works:
- Send an email to me at brooklynbride [at] gmail [dot] com with Holiday Card Swap in the subject line by November 21 [day before Thanksgiving]. Include your name, address, email address, and website/blog address [if you have one].
- By December 1, I will have emailed you the names and addresses of up to 5 people to send cards to.
- Your cards can be store bought or handmade [think Gocco, glitter, photoshop, cut + paste, sewing, etc....]
- Send out your cards by December 15 at the latest!
- Wait patiently by your mailbox!
[this swap WILL be open to international readers, so pay attention to extra postage needs]
I don’t normally like to post 2 real weddings in one week, but this is definitely the exception….I am completely blown away by this wedding…..[via DCNearlyweds]

Amanda and Matthew are fellow Brooklynites that are getting married next year in Detroit, but took some awesome shots in and around DUMBO thanks to their photographer Jessica Johnson. They actually took their bridal session photos in full gear, and plan on displaying them at the wedding. Amanda’s Knot bio has some great images, so check it out. I can’t wait to see how it all turns out!

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a nice weekend! Chad and I got back superlate on Monday night thanks to a canceled flight and a rerouting to Philly, but we made it back in one piece. Niagara Falls, Toronto, and Buffalo….it was all beautiful, and amazingly, in full Autumn color! So many shades of yellow, orange, chartreuse….just amazing. That last image is from the Distillery Historic District in Toronto….a great place for weddings, and home to some fabulous treats by SoMA Chocolatemaker [I recommend the Baci Di Dama wholeheartedly!].
