To us, our wedding was like a fun day with a bunch family and good friends. The only difference was that we got to dress up! We did most of the planning ourselves and had the help of family and friends. We chose the green building because it was in such a beautiful open space and we loved the fact that it was right in the neighborhood we lived.We were on a bit of a budget so we put together most of the decor ourselves even though the green building is pretty enough by itself. The top three priorities for our wedding were photography, music, and food. We are so blessed to have found LES LOUPS because they are rock star team of photographer and DJ. We were overjoyed at how beautifully she captured the day. Kenan did an awesome job spinning the songs we love as well as pleasing the crowd. We couldn’t have picked a better DJ. Jonathan and I has so much fun dancing we probably forgot we were at our own wedding! The best part was having a photo booth set up because that’s where we got to see the guests have fun.We are so happy with how our wedding turned out especially because we actually got to enjoy it. The best part was when my husband surprised me with a song while playing the ukele. His friend harmonized with him and it was so sweet I was speechless. The guests loved it!My advice for couples on their wedding day is to try to relax, eat, and really spend time hanging out with all our family and friends. Oh yes , and sparklers add a really nice touch for pictures.

So far we’ve covered sweet & savory foodie items perfect for any Brooklyn themed out of town gift bag, now for some more ideas for the actual tote! Going custom would be awesome too, but if there’s no budget, these are some great readymade options.
PS. Remember my wedding totes? Erica from Thoughtful Day designed them and I still love ‘em!
So last time we started with the savory, lets finish off with the sweet shall we? I’d recommend mixing items from both to get a good balance!
1. Spoonable Brooklyn butterscotch | 2. Salty Road Taffy | 3. Momofuko birthday truffles | 4. Nunu Chocolates | 5. The Good Batch | 6. Mast Brothers Brooklyn blend | 7. Liddabit Sweets | 8. Whimsy & Spice marshmallows | 9. Raaka | 10. Brooklyn tote
Pops of yellow and oversized lettering at the ceremony make this Green Building wedding all the more fun!

Sometimes I get requests for stuff to put in out of town giftbags for weddings, and one thing I know about giftbags is that they HAVE to have some yummy stuff in them. With Brooklyn weddings especially, its easy because we’ve got some great artisanal vendors all around us, so today I thought I’d share a foodie giftbag with you to help get you started. All of these items are on the more savory side, next time I’ll share with you the sweet stuff!
