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!

From the photographer:

On a late summer day in Brooklyn, two people made a pact to love and respect one another for the rest of their lives. On September 1st, Shani & Lauren were legally joined in matrimony overlooking the Audubon center in Prospect Park, after having eloped in Paris earlier in the summer. After the ceremony, the pair perused the Brooklyn flea on the their way to 606 R&D to cool off with summertime spritzers. The newlyweds were received by an intimate reception where spontaneity ruled and the atmosphere was connected. Chatter and laughter could be heard as guests dined on delicious local, organic, gluten-free foods.  They were serenaded by one of their close friends, who sang a euphoric acappella rendition of A Thousand Years. As the sun set, the day was capped off with a stroll home through the streets of Brooklyn.
