Purple dress against a hazy grey sky = perfection!
Favorite shot ever! I must find where this wall is!

Recently one of our Urbanic brides asked me what trends I was seeing this year in wedding invitations. I thought about it for a minute and realized that I have noticed more purples incorporated into wedding colors than ever! This inspired me to gather up a few things from the shop (and some extras) for you Brooklyn Briders to enjoy!

I always knew Shake Shack had exceptional burgers, but who knew you could fall in love there too?! It sure made for some great pre-wedding photos for Sharon & Chris, thanks to Maggie Harkov! Sharon gives all the details below…[make sure to check out the gorgeous lace on her dress!]
US: Chris and I met one fateful summer at LAX airport en route to a cultural exchange program in central China. We bonded over the joy of eating sheep stomach soup, yak yogurt and grilled lamb kabobs. We love to eat! Back in the US, we started five years of long-distance courtship (me in NYC, he in Maryland). On Valentine’s Day 2009, Chris proposed in front of our favorite burger place, Shake Shack, at Madison Square Park.
THE WEDDING: On our wedding day, it only seemed natural for us to have our first embrace in front of Shake Shack. Not even a rainy October day prevented us from getting a burger to eat (and shake to drink!) on the biggest day of our lives. We even had a personalized wedding cake topper of us feeding each other a Shake Shack burger and shake…that’s how much we love the place.
we got a lot of positive – fun feedback about our save-the-dates. we wanted something casual, but slightly different. i loved the idea of a card that opened up, and my husband who plays in a band, liked the music/poster style. inadvertently we chose a sort of typical mardi gras color combo – something that was perfect as i spent 7 years living in new orleans.

I’ve found Brooklyn Bride to be such a stylish, fun source of inspiration–when I saw your recent post on Save the Dates, I thought I’d send ours along. We ordered the return address stamp from Paperwink (after seeing a post about them on Brooklyn Bride) and then chose Carnival MF Open as a near-match to print the envelopes. I love tiny stuff, so the moo cards and the golf pencils were especially fun for me (they’re still on sale from Write On Pencils & they’ll do up to three imprint lines for free. We chose a pun, the date, and our website). We found the library stamp in the basement, and the other stamps were drawn by my main squeeze. We had fun assembling these little packets, and from what we’ve heard people had fun opening them, too!
